Great capability, but UI is needs some focus
Pros: Ok - so unlike several other apps out there you get all kinds of customized options for your flight planning. The orthomosiac and topo maps and other 3D model outputs that this does for free is amazing. It's an amazing tool for free! It will work for most users for areas <5 acres.
Cons: The UI is terrible. Very hard to know the order of operations to setup and plan your job. It's even harder to understand how to load your job to your drone. Once it's doing its' thing it's not all that difficult (since its in autopilot).
The other challenging thing is you have to remember to take the reference picture on the ground. If you don't your 3D model will float in the air at the height you fly your mission at.
GREAT App and stitching service for Price
I have worked with every photogrammetry app/software for aerial mapping in the past 5 years and for quick, quality maps, I always use Maps Made Easy. Sure, there are ones that achieve better results. But for example, I helped the company Geodetics build their GEO-MMS Velodyne LiDAR system on a M600. It took about 6 months to build/test/analyze the system then another 6 to perfect it. Now they sell for six figures. Plus you have to do all the stitching/texturizing yourself. MME isn’t going to give you a perfect map, it’s not built for it NOR is it priced for that. Keep that in mind, and say thank you every time they stitch the map and give you 10 different files including OBJ.
Works great, UI needs work
It’s a 1 trick pony, (flying a grid within a box to snap pictures suitable for mapping) but it does its job very well.
It flies my Phantom 3 perfectly - I have to admit it was a bit nerve-wracking to push the start button and watch it fly away on it’s own the first time, but it worked great.
Being able to create missions indoors, with the phantom offline is fantastic. Especially in the winter when you don’t want to take your gloves off more than necessary.
Areas for improvement:
-Reusing missions is possible,(Ideal for tracking changes in an area over time) but you can’t modify a mission (ex change the altitude if you decide you were too high) - that requires a new mission.
- You can’t make a box that has an indented side. You can add as many points to a side as you want as long as they bulge out between the 2 ends.
- Nowhere in the app (that I could find) does it tell you about their mapsmadeeasy cloud service that stitches your photos together
- It doesn’t always start the mission close to your launch point. It’s easy to adjust, but I’ve set up missions where both the default beginning and end point were on the other end of the grid from the launch.
