I wanted to reopen this thread to see if we could continue the pursuit of designing the linear mapping app to perform more efficiently, and by such, far superior to the standard snake flight path. The feature that this app seems to be missing is the ability to start at a specified waypoint, effectively making it one. You can see that by the illustration at the beginning of this post. My goal is to use DroneDeploy for all flight planning and remove the need to switch apps during a mission. Currently I use Litchi to perform these types of surveys.
Beyond this, once it is accomplished, I would start another request to be able to run different flight plans consecutively without having to land. I have a common scenario where I have plenty of battery remaining after the map flight and want to take standardized obliques like the new 3D mode, but also artistic shots. I can switch to Litchi, but why do that if I can generate these flight plans in drone deploy and even my artisitc shots and always in the same place.
Thanks for the ear!
