I would like to do quite a few acres (1,500?) next week. Most fields are more than 130 acres (looking at corn and sorghum fields) so I’ll have to do 2 or 3 flights per field at the least.
I would like to plan missions ahead of time to make the most efficient use of batteries and my time.
I envision logging on to DroneDeploy on my laptop, planning 3 or so missions for a field and then naming them like so:
Field 1 a
Field 1 b
Field 1 c
Field 2 a
Field 2 b
Field 3 b
In this way I can open the DD app on the Tab, load the correct mission, let it fly and not have to guess making sure I have created enough overlap between two missions so that they can be stitched together.
Is this possible? I can’t seem to figure out how to plan new missions on the laptop. It wants me to select a UAV but there are none to select.
I’m sure this process will be rendered useless when we can continue missions after a battery change on large areas, but for now it would be quite handy.
