A core feature of Dronelink is the ability to link together various mission components as well as automate camera settings at various points throughout the mission. Continue adding to your missions to capture all the data you need for a particular project, such as flying a map, followed by a pano and video orbit using video camera settings.
Viewing Multiple Mission Components in the Mission Planner
Each mission component that executes in a mission plan is shown on the map with a number displayed above it, indicating when it will execute, and in the Mission Components list.
Expand the Mission Components List
Select the down arrow next to the undo and redo buttons to expand the mission component list. You can access each of the mission components by selecting them on the map.
Understanding a Multiple Component Mission
