I can’t figure out how to get my images from the app on my ipad to anywhere else (see my post under “processing”), so I can’t post an example of this, but the last time I flew with this app, the drone flew the correct route, but didn’t take good pictures. I had the camera set for 90-degrees, which I believe is supposed to be straight down, but the app took pictures that showed the horizon, so I don’t know what it really did… Anyway, the pictures it took of flat ground are clear, but show the horizon. The pictures it took of the 30-40 degree slope portion, however, are extremely (and unusably) blurry. An orange traffic cone we were using for ground control just appears as one long, blurred orange line.
We tried using both fast and safety mode, and safety mode was marginally better, but still unusable. I showed the pictures to an amateur photographer, and he told me it looked like motion blur, but the drone supposedly stopped to take the picture at least during the second flight because it was using safe mode. There was very little wind, so I don’t think that was an issue.
My original instinct was that our error was that we needed to reangle the camera to take a good shot of the slope, but I’m not so sure. I don’t know what to make of the horizon appearing in the other photos. Also, I don’t know if this makes a difference, but we were flying quite high in the air–300ft or so. Since the app doesn’t adjust for terrain (to my knowledge anyway) and we could only fly from the bottom of the slope, we had to set the altitude quite high so we wouldn’t crash into the ground.
Any suggestions? I’m really tired of google searching this issue and finding nothing.
By the way, this website always gives me an obscene delay between my actual typing and the words appearing on the screen, which is unbelievably annoying. Please fix this issue!
