My goodness you say "go ahead" a lot. Other than that, good video.
And you can maintain LOS?
can the mavic air do this as well ?
The problem is that location where I usually drone have a pretty bad signal. So, I could not pre-fly it to record waypoints (often lost signal). I drone mostly above the highway to record traffic for my work. Could you recommend anything to autopilot waypoints? Thanks
NOPE! sorry, this is way to clunky. Get autopilot form autologic and set yourself free. DJI has a lot to learn about this autonomous flight. I love autopilot, and there immense number of flight options. I have it on my Ipad air 2. Used it all the time for my P3A and it worked flawlessly. Sold the P3A due to the fact DJI dumped it for support, and upgrades. I am waiting for my Mavic pro to arrive and we'll be back in the flyers seat! can't wait. I am in no way paid by, or indorse Autopilot, i just plain love it!
Is it possible to record INDOOR waypionts without GPS, only using the proximity sensors?
Awesome as usual.
this is useless BY THE TIME YOU SPEND PLOTING IT YOUR DONE ANYWAY. WHY CANT THIS BE DONE ON THE TAB BEFORE FLIGHT LIKE OTHERS?
Having to fly a route to use the waypoint feature is a big disadvantage. You use twice the battery power to do just what again? DJI needs to modify the feature to pre-plan flights and upload them; like Litchi.
great video, thanks for the tips
Two questions. 1.) Around 1:50 into the video you make the gps take up most of the screen instead of the camera view, how did you do that?
2.) I am attempting to use way points to create a downward spiral motion. I believe the gps waypoint screen tells you the exact location of each way point. As opposed to flying the drone around is there a way just to input the waypoints into the gps screen?
This video would be fricking awesome if we had any idea where you were finding any of this S H I T !!!! you are mumbling about . Have you ever watched one of your videos ?
The old Waypoint was way better. They should reconsider it because the resent drones now have sensors, so it'll be ideal.
If Waypoint #1 is directly above your launch point, later you can refly that mission from a cold-hearted, letting it self-run to Waypoint #1, fly the mission, then auto-return, to use minimum battery, and have identicle flights each time avoiding pilot input.
First time I tried a waypoint mission it worked perfectly, now when I enter waypoints & press done, that altitude message is in red & the mission upload fails.
What Android phone are you using? My screen looks nowhere near as good!
Love your introduction! No mucking around just straight into it. Thank you.
You kidding me you can't even preset them without turning on everything and putting it actually in the air
what is the red icon signal up in your menu? why is red?
This is why I don't use the DJI App, I use Litchi much better for way points and pre-planed routes
i dot see the yellow line when i fly my mavic am i missing something ?
how do you get the video capture of your phone?
Thanks for posting the tutorial. I just got my Mavic last week and did not understand how to set my way points. This was extremely helpful. Hopefully DJI will put out an update for pre-planning. However, DJI probably does not want people running waypoints without flying them first for the possibilty somebody will program a waypoint that has an obstacle in their route. Even though the Mavic has avoidance sensors, there is that chance it would fail while somebody wasn't paying attention. So they most likely don't want the liability of having that feature.
Wish the turns were smoother. Thanks for this, but looks litchi is better for this feature with pre-planning.
Hey Mike, great job. I compared your video to the other guy Dylan that made a video that was similar in the fact that you recorded your screen to show us what the heck was going on makes it 10 times better.
Have you done a waypoints with the go4 app?? I'm sure its similar, but thats what we are suppose to use now with the mavic, and is there a way to delete saved missions??
what features do you have to have a cell signal on the mavic?
do you have son advise for that conditions of jungle?
hi Michael and Good night
i have two questions for you, what do you thinkg about the mavic functions in bushy jungles?
and if i use the mavic whit no Internet even so the app Work?
thank you nice job
stupid feature. The whole purpose of waypoint flying is to allow you to PRE SET waypoints that the craft will fly. If you need to first fly the route and set waypoints, it defeats the whole purpose.
Just got my mavic. This might be an amateur question, but when and why would I want to use the waypoint setting?
Nice video. Thanks for the tips. On another note for you Mavic pilots; There is no need to spend $200 to $300 to pass the UAG Exam. You do need to study, its no walk in and just take test, but there are plenty of low cost and event free online tutorials. In my case, I used a GooglePlay app call UAS107. Used it for 70% (30% FREE YouTube sectional chart videos) of my prep for the exam; and the app only cost me $4. Passed on my 1st try with an 85%. My total cost to pass the exam:
$4 for UAS107 app
$150 for the test exam fee
Here is the link to the app for anyone interested: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uas107.openrobotix.labs&hl=en
Great Info, how did you record your screen?
Dumb question I'm sure but How are you able to talk while flying the drone? Are you wearing a Mike ?
Looks like it did allow you to change the altitude, after WP3 it started a decent. Maybe you fly to the point and altitude then save the WP.
Hi Michael. You're the man!! Thank you for all of the tutorials. I was wondering- during your waypoint mission, on each new point, the camera makes a sharp turn to face the new direction. Is there any way to smooth these turning points out so its like a giant loop, as opposed to linear turns?
I wish the Mavic Pro camera had a night vision camera. .. but hell of a tutorial, thanks bud!
How did u change your units to feet?
I seriously recommend you switch to Litchi or Autopilot for waypoint missions. DJI's implementation is garbage compared to either. Trust me – buy Litchi, try it out and you'll be amazed. Make sure to try designing a mission in their mission hub – instance sync to your mobile device.
