Hi, I’m new here and tried to find an answer but I was unable to.
I’ve been flying with drone deploy for some time and I’m very impressed with the results.
One thing I’ve been trying to find out is if it’s possible to set the flight altitude, for the flight plan calculation, independent of the drone starting point.
Usually I choose a higher vantage point to keep the drone in LOS and avoid obstacles that could interfere with radio communications.
In many cases the point where the drone takes off is already near the flight altitude I want for the surveying flight.
If I set a Flight Altitude of 10m (from the starting point) and I’m already 20m higher than the surface I want to capture, the flight plan will be calculated assuming I’m 10m above ground and the drone will capture much more images then needed and the imagens will overlap much more than intended.
I think setting the flight altitude independent of the take off and travel to the first waypoint should be very simple, but I’m unable to do it.
There should be a way to avoid over-capture, without manually calculate the parameters or playing with the manual settings and guess the appropriate overlap amount.
