Is there a way to go back into the interface where I create Auto WP Survey (grid) and modify an existing waypoint file? For example, if I have created a WP file where the speed is 3M per second, and…Continue

"Never thought of the hacking potential. I'm more worried about the hawks that live near the orchards I'm surveying. When they hack, it's a very unhappy day. (Safe so far, but a couple close calls...)"

"Pablo, I've used Map Pilot a couple times, and when it works, it is great and very simple. I'm having inconsistent results with focus however. The two finger tap option they mention just doesn't work for me. It makes the preview…"

"What is the latest news on focus control in the app? I am running the identical equipment as Pablo, and have found sometimes while launching DJI Go in order to set focus, (after a battery swap), that I can no longer resume the mission from the last…"

"Jonathan, I'm interested in what the Phantom 4 Pro is capable of doing, compared to the Inspire 1 Pro which I own. I am currently limited to about 6m/s with the Inspire because the shutter can't be triggered any faster than once every five…"

Version 2.8 Latest update features

Hi,I'm reading over the release notes for versions 2.7 and 2.8 and want to make sure I'm understanding what features have been added.1. Does this allow adaptive banked turns for the Inspire 1? (I don't think this worked in the past.) If so, that should speed up how quickly a mission can be flown. I'm burning a lot of time stopping at each waypoint turn.2. In order to trigger the Inspire 1 X5 faster than once every five seconds, should I be using Area Scan instead of Photogrammetry?3. No focus…See More

"I did some test flights manually triggering the camera every 1.5 seconds, (I had a metronome app running in the background at 40 beats per minute), and it worked just fine. There is hope!"
