Additionally, we also received the following question via the ticketing system:
“Since we are trying to stitch thermal imagers, we were using the second to slowest setting (safe mode) and had 90% Overlap. it is possible that we had more than 99 waypoints but I did not count. Should I also close the DJI GO app before starting the mission? would closing DJI GO mean that I would have to reconnect to the drone to take over manual flight?”
To ensure that none of your questions fall through the cracks, please allow me to address each one individually.
- Video feed on M600.
There are also other users reporting that the video feed is not working as expected on M600. I would invite you to have a look at this community post for more information: DJI Matrice 600 with X3 Camera & Pix4dCapture. To sum it up, this is a known issue and it is not expected that the video feed will work with M600 drone. As users report the same issue while using other apps we suspect that it is a firmware related thing.
As you already noticed, the video feed works on Inspire series although there are some users reporting a bit of a video lag.
- Images not captured
Since the video feed is not working on the M600 series I would recommend you to use the SD card memory to see if the images are actually captured.
I would also recommend you to try to use another drone for image acquisition as the issue might be related to the specific drone or configuration.
- 99 waypoints
The latest status is that the mission will be uploaded even if the mission exceeds the 99 waypoints. This is why I do not expect that the missing images issue is related to this.
For example, if the mission has more than 99 waypoints, we only send 99 waypoints to the drone at once, and when reaching this limit the drone will stop and return back home. It is possible to pause or take manual control while the drone is in the air and resend some more waypoints (until 99) to complete the mission.
- DJI Zenmuse XT and other apps
I am not aware of other apps that would support automated mission planning with Zenmuse XT camera. Maybe some users know more on this topic?
