Finally some work …
I had set up 8 areas to fly today capturing orthomosaic images of parks and reserves
At one of these sites the drone was to cover 11 hectares and capture 133 images, at a height of 70m (230 ft). I do not upload the images in the field as we have patchy internet.
When uploading the photos back at office, the first two transects showed good coverage of image locations, then the rest of the flight showed very patchy coverage - only having taken 83 out of 133 images (hence 62%).
As I can not easily get back out to fly this site again (1.5 hours from home) before Christmas, the poor image I have will need to be sent to the client.
Has anyone else has this issue with the camera not capturing the correct number of images?
I’ve sometimes had the odd missed image - but nothing like this patchwork.
I do note that it took 3 attempts for the drone to work through the pre-flight steps - it did stop on not enough GPS on 2 occasions, and camera fail on one occasion.
Appreciate any suggestions / recommendations.
