nope i tried all of those things yesterday, and still could not load the mission. I am curious what the time out would be? I have an 1100 acre mission, divided into 5 grids. First 2 went ok, i did have to make multiple attempts to upload. My 3rd grid was just completely unsuccessful. I waited 10 minutes just because… and still no upload. I shut down everything, reconnected everything, loaded app, cut size of grid in half, still unable to upload.
I uninstalled app and will re install today, make a test mission before i trek 3 miles into the woods :-) hoping it works.
If i may add some usability recommendations…
1. The ability to “snap” grids together? Or ability to set up grids in a map.
- The app does not always choose the best starting point in a resume (multiple battery) mission. And battery management is so important in a large mapping mission. I had 4000’ flight paths, auto return to home a 4000’. Swap out battery, fly 4000’ to last waypoint, instead of capturing 4000’ of data on way there.
3.If you duplicate a map, it would be better if it actually duplicated exactly, then you can just adjust location to your next grid or next map? Like a saved Map even.
- I dont fly with my Ipad, it seems to really limit video transmission. Being able to create maps on that device, then transfer to my Iphone for flight would be a huge advancement, for these old eyes.
5 I did switch over from DD control to capture, mostly for the resume ability. Yours goes back to the last photo, drone deploy goes back to the last waypoint, so you end up always recapturing data… that battery management thing again.
- Manual camera control. Coming from a 20yr professional photographer, i like to have more control. Example. I just took 1100 pictures in the last 2 days, just went thru my metadata. I noticed Capture only adjusts shutter speed, leaving ISO at 100. Most times, increasing it to 400 to 600 has little negative effect on noise, but increasing shutter speed to the 500 range is huge for horizontal panning captures. 1/1000 is even better. Curious why ISO is locked in at 100?
I look forward to being able to run Pix4D. Current business climate, and my business, in northern NY wont support it…yet ;-)
There was a recent forest fire in northern NY, in an Jack Pine Forest, very rare. I am doing an 1100 acre ortho flight plan over it. It will be researched extensively
Thank you for your software.
