Hello fellow Pix4Ders!
I’m finishing up on a large, somewhat complicated series of flights that proved to be rather difficult to get to register to the GCP’s. After much thought, I’m starting to think that the problem might have had something to do with my overall flight pattern. Normally, I would fly a project using a mostly rectangular style polygon encompassing the desired flight area (I use Maps Made Easy, it’s worked really well for me). However, on this project, due mostly to the parcels having odd geographic boundaries, my flights became more triangular in shape. Could this have been causing my problems with getting the GCP’s to register correctly? Or would the problems have more to do with the Galileo Satellite System failure (around the same time as the flights)? I should add I use a Mavic 2 Pro, with the latest firmware, while I had some settings incorrect for that particular UAS, some of the projects locked right into place without a problem.
I’m just trying to troubleshoot this problem so I can avoid it again in the future.
Any thoughts would be helpful.
