Ecological Design ,

Flawless flight on 11 acres. Watch that landing!

I’d like to get my drone up in the sky at elevation before I start the flight plan. Put the camera down focus take a picture then start the flight plan. Everything went great today even with 10 mile an hour breeze. Changing batteries on the first landing the drone was off by about 20 feet and landing and some brush. I’m sure it would’ve stopped but, why wait. I took control and brought it over to the landing point manually. Changing batteries was no problem, put the drone up to altitude once again and continue the flight. Now it’s all in the processing.

Automation; be careful.

First time user thoughts. The app is pretty easy to get into. There are some weird bugs with battery swapping. The app gets a brain freeze and there is no on screen notification of what is going on. Some times the drone would just sit there after i selected go fly. At one point i knelt down to pick it up to bring it to the bench and the propellers spun up. So some sort of app feedback on what it is attempting to signal to the drone would be an improvement. Second issue i had, the app would crash or go to my phones home screen during a flight. When this would happen i couldn’t get the app back on and displaying anything. The app would just load to a blank blue screen. One time the app opened and stated asking me survey questions. All while my drone was flying. That was my biggest concern. Once the flight is complete uploading the photos was pretty easy. Seems like patience is key here. Just have to wait a day or so for the terrain model and map to generate after uploading the photos.

The result is fabulous. My favorite part of the system is choosing AGL altitude mode where the app automatically flys a set height above the terrain. This is great for hilly areas and avoiding flights that might be too high otherwise.

Overall this is a snap, but be very careful with your inputs and keep your finger on the mode switch or you could end up with a automatically crashed drone.

Decent but I have issues

I love the usability of the application and I like the desktop-tablet interface. I like the outputs also as most of them have been pretty high quality.

1. Application crash while using IPad. I usually have between 10 and 15 minutes of flight time in mission before the application crashes. When Inget it up again it’s doesn’t allow me to jump back into my active mission, which is not as big of an issue as the crashing itself. Due to the application crashing periodically (sometime multiple times in a 20minute window) I have crashed multiple drones. 😡
2. The other issue is related to my ability to edit my missions on my iPad out in the field. For whatever reason it 80%of the time it will not let me move my flight mission boundaries. I also find this extremely frustrating as I have also crashed 2 drones because of this. I make make of forest land and if I can’t adjust the boundaries then the likely hood of me flying into branches from trees outside of the boundary is very high.

If your are not flying in a forested area, this application seems like it would be amazing. But with the weird things I have run into in my field of work have severely frustrated me.

I wish drone deploy would update these issues so that I can have a trustworthy and reputable application to work with.
