Setting Camera Specs During Mission Planning for Correct Mapping and Facade Overlaps

  • Updated

Each drone as a different field of view (FOV) based on the camera. This has implications when mission planning, specifically for mapping and facade missions that use overlap values to determine the flight path. It is also important to set when performing visual mission planning using 3D previews for other components.

Dronelink does not automatically adjust the flight path based on the connected drone. A user must create mission plans specific to the drone they are targeting. Select the target camera from the provided dropdown list of supported drones by Dronelink.

Step 2 - Select Target Camera from the List

If you are doing thermal inspections, the FOV is smaller, and will require more closely spaced path. For drones with thermal and RGB payloads, make sure to select the correct camera spec from the dropdown.
