I just got back from another poor showing on Drone Deploy’s app. I tried again to make a 700 acre map, but nope I waited ten minutes for the waypoint check to finish, but never did. I proceeded to go down to 233 acres and waited 5 minutes nothing. I then dropped the map size to about 160 acres and voila waypoints checked and ready to fly within seconds!
I think there is a serious flaw if I can only fly 160 acres at a time. If anything the waypoint circle needs to identify percentage of waypoints uploaded…as I do not know if its just froze up or if it is truly uploading, just slowly. The other app that I use allows for 255 acres and then if anything larger than that it gives me a warning saying too many waypoints make plot smaller. At least there I know my maximum size although still small IMO.
I am running a test now on drone deploy for the 700 acres to see how much time it will actually take to load up that amount of acreage (if it ever will). Has nobody on the Drone Deploy team done anything larger than 200 acres at once? I can’t believe I am the first to have this problem with the software?
