I’m sorry if this is posted elsewhere, but I’m brand new to this app–literally, uploaded it on Wednesday, and I’m about to leave my office for a few days so I have to type this fast.
So I use this program for work, and we just tried it out for a first “mission”–short, five or so minute grid flight. We use an ipad to control our drone, and out in the field we don’t have wifi, so I couldn’t log in. I still have a few “skips” left for this, however, so I skipped the log in process and simply planned the flight and then flew. Flight went fine, but then 3/4 of the way through it started raining pretty badly. The moment it finished flying, we turned the drone off to cut potential damages, dried everything off, etc.
Back at the office, I connected the camera’s memory card to my laptop, but found no pictures from today. I put the card back in the camera and powered it all on again with the ipad connected to the controller & talking to the drone, searched in the “mission manager” section of the app and found absolutely no record of the flight we flew this morning. Couldn’t sync, obviously
What gives? I can think of a few potential reasons for this, but I don’t know which one is right or if any of them are right: 1) we weren’t logged in so the pictures didn’t save; 2) we didn’t have wifi so the pictures didn’t save; 3) we turned off the drone & controller too soon after the flight for anything to be saved; 4) the app didn’t take pictures for some reason I don’t understand; 5) there are pictures but they’re floating around in cyberspace somewhere and I don’t know where to go to retrieve them
The rain does not appear to have damaged anything, so I really don’t think that’s the problem.
I really need some help. It’s not a big deal if I can’t retrieve these images–I just want to know how to do it correctly for next time. Thanks in advance for any assistance!!!
