Version 3.1.1

What is new

  • Support of DJI Matrice 100.
  • Picture trigger mode: Triggering the camera is now based on a time lapse. The app used to send a signal to take a picture which is no longer the case. The distribution of the images along the flight path is expected to be more regular.


  • (Grid Mission) Improved overlap: More accurate computation of flight characteristics that depends on the overlap.
  • (Grid Mission) Synchronization of the images: The new picture trigger mode can make the images very close to each other in terms of visual content. It happens in the corners when the drone slows down whereas the time lapse is fixed. When synchronizing the mission, redundant images are discarded. These images might also be blurry because the drone turns in the corners. Therefore, there are more images on the drone’s SD card than on the mobile device and in the .p4d file.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed bug where overlap percentage was not shown on some devices.
  • Various bug fixes.

Known bugs

  • (Inspire 1, Matrice 100) When flying with a Zenmuse X5 camera, the automatic synchronization that usually starts at the end of the flight fails. The mission should be synchronized manually but it could still fail. For more information: 204716225. In this case, processing without the .p4d file is recommended. For more information: 204911905.


Version 3.1.0

What is new

  • Support of DJI Phantom 4 and DJI Phantom 3 Standard.
  • Integration of DJI SDK 3.2.0.
  • Ability to resume a mission that has been aborted or interrupted by taking over manual control. The incomplete portion is saved (a smaller grid mission with the remaining lines is created) so that it can be flown later e.g. after changing the battery or waiting for flying conditions to change.


  • (DJI drones) Full support, not in beta anymore.
  • (DJI drones) Image download and synchronization.
  • Ability to create and upload a single project file for all missions being part of the same project (beta option).
  • Feedback improvement when adjusting a grid (color and alert message).
  • UI improvements.

Bug fixes

  • (Solo) .p4d file generation with image coordinates.
  • Various bug fixes.
