It would be nice if I could manually override the automatic return to home function.
The drone was 1,5 km away from me and returned home with 20% battery. So I had to wait for the drone, replace the battery and fly back for the remaining 15 photos (approx 2% battery time). So I lost 10 minutes, and 10-15% of a new battery.
If I could chose, most of the times I would rather let the drone finish making the photos and land it manually - and walk/drive to collect the drone. I’m an agricultural user, sometimes I can pick it up anywhere, sometimes only 1 landing spot available.
I won’t sue you if I miscalculate and the drone doesn’t make it back. It’s my responsibility, but I should have the opportunity to choose.
Also you HAVE to let me control the landing. If you miss just by 50 cm (poor GPS), you will topple the drone, land it in crops, puddles…
Right now it forces down the drone, you can only slow it down a bit, but it will touch down no matter what I do.
Last time it landed sideways (it was uneven surface) it cost me 100 bucks and 3 weeks service time. I wanted to land it elsewhere but it landed - despite me pushing buttons and yelling furiously.
So in summary: automatisms are good, but please let the user decide when and where to land.
