Hey all, hoping someone can help tell me what I am doing wrong.
I just got hold of my new Mavic 3E (after using DD with a Mavic 2 Pro + iPad for a few years and 20+ projects).
I have loaded DD onto the controller and it seems to have installed fine.
I open up a project and can see the flight path dotted lines on the aerial image preview.
I initiate the preflight checklist, which all passes, but as that is happening I notice most of the flight path dotted lines disappear leaving only the path from the home point to the start of the flight grid. And when I start flight, it just flys up to height, across to the starting corner, hovers for a second or two, and then flys back to the homeport and lands.
Am I doing something wrong is it is a glitch in the system?
have checked is the latest version of DD and firmware on the Mavic and the controller is up to date.
OK, so one insight I just realised is that I believe the flight plan path should not have been a dotted line?
I just drew a new flight area inside the DJI controller on DD and it noted the path with a solid blue line and seemed to fly the path and capture photos ok.
But then I noticed if I tried to load another old Map Plan in that same project, it would show the flight path, but that again, a glitch occurs when I do the pre-flight checklist - that new path disappears and it loads the other paths (the one I drew in the Controller app earlier).
So it seems like DD in the Mavic 3E app doesn’t really like loading existing flight paths, unless that had been created/drawn inside the controller app? Far from ideal as it is pretty difficult to create projects in the controller compared to on a laptop through the web portal
