Skycatch Drone Mission Planner
Flight1 is a robust, multifunctional drone mission planning app from Skycatch. The autonomous flight app works with Skycatch Explore1, DJI P4, P4P, P4RTK and M210RTK drones. The app automates aerial mapping from takeoff to landing and allows you to customize your flight settings to ensure you capture the exact images you need.
Flight1 app functionality includes:
Select your area of interest on the satellite maps or import custom base maps
Automatically generate a flight plan with optimal waypoints, speed, and overlap for the altitude and resolution you choose.
Control the direction/heading of the flight path depending on wind, terrain and other obstacles.
If you need to stop your flight for whatever reason (including a drone battery swap), you can resume right where you left off.
Mission plans are saved automatically for recurring data capture on your sites.
When used as part of the High Precision Package (HPP) for Mining from Skycatch, your geotagged drone images are processed in the cloud (or on site with Skycatch Edge1) and turned into orthomaps, point clouds, 3D mesh and DTMs. Measure, overlay, markup, analyze and share your processed data using Skycatch Data Hub or any software that uses point clouds.
This update includes an important improvement to Highwall Scanning missions which impacts the heading of the drone for P4R and M210.
Ratings and Reviews
Simple, easy to use
Didn’t take me very long to figure out how to plan a flight on the map, easier than others that I’ve tried. It has a lot of options for your flight, you can control the direction and the altitude. Looking forward to seeing more options in the future like sharing flight plans.
Heads up! It only works for the Skycatch drone, can’t wait until they add DJI drones
Great improvement 👍
FYI: Only available for the Skycatch drone right now, but a HUGE improvement over the last app. I was in early access for the last one and this one. It looks great and is very straightforward and easy to use, planning a mission is a breeze. This new app also has more functionality: they added a lot of features they didn’t have before, like front and side overlap adjustments and the ability to import/export mission files. Support tells me DJI drone support is coming, can’t wait to fly with my P4P.
Love the updates they've made in this new version of Skycatch flight app. Now you can always see your flight stats no matter how many times you change your mission configurations (used to only be able to see the first time in previous version). Interface is also more robust and even easier to use.
