Explore Public Missions

  • Updated

Let's learn to explore public missions plans, components, and functions. These are accessible from public repositories, some of which have been curated by Dronelink.

After you are done exploring, learn to copy missions to new locations within your account here.

 

Repository: A folder with access permissions. Dronelink repositories are used to organize mission plans, components and more. Repositories are set to public access by default, making the plans within them public.

Beyond the Basics

Learn how to explore public components to use within your missions, or public functions.

 

Step 5  -  Explore and Open Public Components

Components are parts of a mission that can be easily reused between missions plans.

Some Public Repositories only have components, such as the Dronelink Flight Paths repository.

Step 7  - Access Public Repository Functions

Functions are missions that can be generated on-the-fly functions, where a step-by-step wizard walks you through setting up the mission directly in the Dronelink mobile app at the location you are at, with no web app mission planning required.

Some Public Repositories only have functions, such as the Dronelink On-the-fly repository. Some functions are included in your account by default. Advanced users can customize and create their own functions.

Get starting by using a On-the-fly Path Mission or test one with a simulated drone in the web app.
