I’ve just flown a successful mission with Pix4D capture - it went fine, with a couple of niggles:
- the images are all ‘fully zoomed out’, it’s not possible as far as I can tell to set the camera zoom. It would be nicer to control that a little.
- if you hit ‘come home’, you can manually fly the aircraft, but it holds on to it’s idea of coming home. Probably best to let it do it’s thing (nearly crashed it)
It seems like setting up a survey in Flight Plan will take a while, but potentially make better results with better camera control.
I’ve also done a couple of tests with manual flight control - including totalling an ANAFI flying under eaves to exploit it’s upward looking camera abilities (sorry little aircraft, when parrot sell gimbal assemblies you’ll fly again!)
Anyway - I’ll need to install the app on a tablet. One issue I see there is that the basemaps are not always matching reality - so constructing a great 3D flight plan may be some trial-and-error…. but keen to test soon!
