As an ex military Fighter & Drone pilot as well as a test pilot, I thought I'd try a comparison test to see the quality and resolution test on my X3 & X5 camera Inspire 1s
Ive just run 2 missions exactly the same flight plan; one with Inspire X3 & one with Inspire X5. The Inspire X3 (flight no. 1454697521) worked as advertised and landed spot on the same point. The uploaded files and images worked really well. However after processing with the new upgraded uploader less than 50% of the images were included in the processed map. Parameters were 125ft 65% Frontlap & 50% Sideslip for the X3. Additionally there was no auto uploading of photos. (does the app look for LTE rather than any wireless network which my iPad was connected to?
The Inspire X5 (2nd) mission (flight no. 1454695728) was set at 125ft, 80% for Frontal & Sidelap, since my previous effort did not stitch images together (only 2 of 14 images) with 65% Frontlap & 50% sideslip.. I noted that the 2nd mission was the maximum overlap and height ratio that no 'warning' was shown on the app, stating Camera will not be able to process its current image before it needs to take the next photo. The SDXC cards are Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB which have been more than faster enough for any other quick shot requirement. As a result, after 32 images out of a mission of 149, the mission failed due to not been able to finish processing its current photo before needing to take the next photo, (despite no warning on the app) and the aircraft travelled to a random future waypoint and just stayed there. I had to manually fly the aircraft home.
Could you look into the 2 maps and see if there is anything wrong with the software or my poor knowledge of the software?!
Thanks Guys. Really impressed so far.
