How to Enable Drone Offsets / Adaptive Flight

  • Updated

Drone Offsets, also called Adaptive Flight, can be enabled for any mission, and are used to align a mission plan in the field, or to make minor adjustments. This feature is designed for inspections or reality modeling applications, but can also be useful to align a video or photo path.

A new menu in the Flight Dashboard becomes visible that be toggled on or off and can be used before the flight, or during the flight. 

The offset menu consists of a Position offsets section, a Yaw and Altitude section, and an Exposure Value section.

Yaw / Altitude Offsets
