I must apologize for my criticism in my previous post concerning Phantom 4 Advanced in Pix4D Capture.
I went ahead and gave Pix4D capture a try with my own brand new Phantom 4 Advanced, selecting Phantom 4 Pro as the bird. I was a bit nervous about the chance of something going wrong but I took the chance.
I flew two missions, one 2D grid and one circle POI. No problems. Everything worked fine. The pictures transferred to my iPad mini 4 without a hitch and the info of the drone type showed as a Phantom 4 Advanced. Somebody must have fixed something.
I went ahead a purchased your $50 per month Pix4D Modeling app and processed the new 2d grid mission over a large flat grass park. Came out pretty good.
I plan next to try flying a 3d grid and a 3d circle over a large base urban water tower about 120 feet tall. I will combine those images into one project. I will also add a few free flight photos.
I will report whether all the Pix4D Capture modes work with my P4 Advanced or if I observe any issues or glitches.
We have heat warnings and wind forecast for the next week so it might be awhile before I fly the new missions.
I’ll get back either way, good missions or problems.
