Finish flight via button, without RTH


#1

Hi there,
I often fly several flights after each other, without landing. There seems to be no option to actively finish a flight and restart a different one. So it would be great to have an option to finish a flight instead of flying HOME and landing.
Thanks,
T

…this could then hopefully improve the communication and more consistent upload of flight logs to airdata.com which unfortunately not always works for me and logs are dropped (and DJI GO doesn’t log while DD is in control of drone).

I typically just get out of P-mode and switch back, get out of DroneDeploy and reopen and move on. The only problem this causes me is that I have to do an upload with a rectangular perimeter and crop once the map is finished. This isn’t a big deal to me because I like to dial in the perimeters using my CAD overlay, but is a little extra work for people that don’t do that. There are plans to eventually allow batch flight planning, but there is no timetable at this time.

Hi Michael,
Thanks for your feedback and sharing of your process. This is the way how I do it currently also which is alright-ish for controlling the drone and going into the next mapping. But unfortunately, I still keep losing the flight log part in drone deploy and hence nothing is therefore logged in airdata.com or anywhere else either. This is actually causing auditing, legal and liability issues and risks for our company! We are legally flying within 500m of an active heloport (police, rescue, private and close by 2 other heliports from hospital and banks plus we are in downtown = BUSY) - hence if something were ever to go wrong then I literally risk having no means of a flight log…

So, by having a workaround to crash and restarting the app, i only loose a bit of time (that could be saved especially when using subfolder for various projects and locations to navigate through to start the next job - and this also causes distraction from the drone during this time in a busy environment while keeping resources down and not flying with a spotter for only this reason) but most importantly I am unfortunately actually losing valuable flight log data.
Or is there a certainly step-by-step required to save this data somehow in DD before restarting the app???
Cheers,
Thomas
