I plan to use DD to map a very undulating area, where the ground falls away from the Home Point (up to 60m below HP) on one side, but slopes up (up to 80m above HP) on another side.
The DD plan I have created suggests a height of 60 metres.
The question is… will the drone follow the terrain, dropping down on one side and up on the other… in other words… will it fly 60m AGL or always 60m Above Home Point.
If the latter, then it will be too high for decent mapping on the ‘low’ side, and will crash into the ground on the high side.
Any thoughts on this??? I have previously only done relatively flat ground where this didn’t matter, but in this case, I may be in strife!
