Will Drone Deploy fit my project’s needs?

Hello, I just bought a Mavic pro platinum for a specific project. My client needs a full single picture of a production plant which I can’t shot in a single picture at 500 m (the plant measures around 2 kilometers) I would need to fly higher than that which is not possible. Drone Deploy seems a good solution if I can set it up to fly no less than 300 meters and if I can stitch high quality resolution images for the whole picture. Is that possible? I see a limit of 400 feet (only 122 meters) which is too low and I have read 2 cases of Mavics that have flown away! (I can’t take that risk)

Hello @Jacorjim Thanks for reaching out. You are more than welcome to map out the production plant by flying and processing your images via DroneDeploy. Essentially a GeoTiff file can be created. However, we set our limit to 400 as per FAA regulations.

As far as the fly aways, I would make sure you are on your our latest firmware and also app version. Majority of all fly away cases reported are a result of a loss of GPS connection which we have no control of. I would suggest making sure you have control of the drone at all times and to make sure your drone is fully calibrated.

That’s the whole point of the mapping solution. You take photos which become tiles and DroneDeploy stitches all the tiles together to make one full site super-high resolution map. If you tried to go anywhere near high enough to get the site in one or a couple of pictures you are resolution would be terrible.
