(iOS) Circular Mission Settings

Double Grid
Free Flight


For more information about the supported missions depending on the drone: 209960726.

Access: In the Home screen, select Circular. In the Map view, tap ic_settings_green.png and select the Normal or Advanced tab. The Advanced tab give more flexibility and some options cannot be tweaked in the Normal tab.

Drone speed

Defines the drone's speed from a range between Slow and Fast (default). The maximum speed depends on the selected overlap and flight altitude. The scale has five levels corresponding to percentages of the maximum speed between 100% (Fast) and 60% (Slow). The speed should fluctuate between 2 and 8 m/s for copters and is not constant during the flight since the drone slows down to trigger pictures.

Information: Reducing the speed might help to avoid capturing blurry images, but the Fast option is reliable for an optimal reconstruction with the software.

Angle between images (°)

Defines the angle that separates consecutive images. The smaller the angle, the higher the image overlap. The value varies between (Low) and 20° (High). The default value is 10° but if it was changed previously, the angle is the one of the last planned mission.

Important: The drone translates to always face the Point of Interest (POI) which is the center of the flight. The camera angle is set to focus on the ground. In other words, the camera angle is closer to vertical when the flight altitude is higher.

Picture trigger mode

- Except DJI drones

Defines how pictures are triggered between stopping to shoot, Safe mode, or while the drone is flying, Fast mode (default).

Information: The Safe mode significantly increases the flight time. The Fast mode requires good connection with the drone as the trigger relies on a signal.

White balance

- Except Bebop 2

Defines the white balance to apply between Auto (default), Sunny and Cloudy.

Information: It allows to compensate temperatures so that the color of the image is as close as possible to neutral which corresponds to sunlight at noon outdoor. For each image the temperature is adjusted by an algorithm that optimizes the colors.

Ignore homepoint

Defines whether the maximum authorized distance (2 km) between the home point and the flight plan is applied, No (default), or ignored, Yes, to start the mission.

Important: The home point is the location where the drone is turned on and acquires the GPS signal the first time. This distance is mainly for security reasons, to prevent an accidental launch of a mission when the grid is too far away and it is also limited to prevent connectivity losses.

The Reset all settings button makes all options revert to their default values.
