So currently there isn’t a super great alternative.
What I have customers do with the ebee is walk it to the start location of the landing area and make a waypoint there, then walk down in a straight ish line to the edge of where the landing can take place. Then drop in the landing flight path. It’s a little clunky and very nerve racking for customers when they can’t see exactly where this is landing and can’t get a good idea after it’s already in the air and is maybe off course a bit because of wind.
My suggestion now is to either take an anafi up and do a quick flight first, maybe a day or two before the planned ebee flight, since control isn’t necessary and pre load it into emotion. But it’s not a great easy option because you can’t always get there the day before, mapper takes awhile to process even smaller jobs, especially if their laptop isn’t a super high end one because they normally process on their desktop (or in the cloud), and the overlap requirements are a bit higher in mapper to get the orthos to stitch from what I’ve seen in the past.
Being able to get react to output those google map tiles/emotion tiles would really help those customers on site for the first time that don’t have updated imagery, first time fixed wing pilots in general, and could have a handful of other uses for GIS professionals to work with.
