Planning Your Missions
Along with custom shots of your site, performing missions in Manual Flight also allows you to fly in and out of tight spaces without worry. Sometimes it can be difficult to gauge how tall a building is or how far off the ground a flare stack appears to be.
With Manual Flight, you can scope areas and check altitudes to build into your autonomous mission settings. This means you can take your drone to a building’s apex, log the building’s height, and ensure you fly at the proper altitude to get the most enhanced 3D model without ever putting your drone at risk.
This is also especially important for thin, vertical structures such as wind turbines, power poles and lines, and the aforementioned flare stacks, as it can sometimes be difficult for drone sensors to detect these types of constructs.
