I realize there will be a lot of pushback on this idea, but I wanted to throw it out there to see whether there might be something to fix a problem we’ve probably all had. This happened to me twice today. The drone had 20% battery left and needed to take literally 3 more stills to complete a mapping run. If I were manually flying, I would have stopped the drone from returning to home so the last few seconds of shots (or video) could be taken and then I would have manually started the return to home.
This is doubly annoying when the drone is flying toward home taking the last few shots and it decides it can’t finish without flying to home to get a new battery, then flying back to where it was finishing up, and then flying toward home as it got the last few shots.
Can we think of a way to be able to override the return-to-home without canceling the entire mission so that the last few shots can be taken, even at the risk of returning to home at 19% instead of 20%?
