    Degrees and drones for inspections

    Do you need a degree for people to take you seriously for inspecting crops and rooftops with drone deploy and a p4p? I didn’t want to pour a bunch of money into the software I need if I have to be a licensed land surveyor. Thanks in advance.

    show: first try with making a map - P4P Pro v2.0 - 245 images, 56 acres, 360 ft high

    I used dronedeploy to do the mapping flight and then opendronemap to process the images. i think it came out pretty good, but i definitely learned some things for next time: * some of the photos were blurry * try different camera settings in DJI Go, im not even sure what camera settings i was...

    Using app with P4P+

    OK, so I'm massively disappointed after searching here and finding I can't use Litchi with my P4P Plus (the one with the fixed screen included). Disappointed, because I intend to use my drone commercially, and the waypoint function in Litchi is obviously a big advantage. But c'est la vie...

    Can one use DJI googles while mapping with Drone Deploy?

    I would like to have an observer using DJI googles while I fly a mapping with DroneDeploy on my iPhone but I am hesitant to even try it without knowing whether it will cause problems. Has anyone tried? Thanks

    Tablet Issues With Phantom 4 Pro (I tried to be descriptive, little wordy)

    I am very new to DJI products. I have been using Draganfly drones over the past few months with the college I attend, however, recently I purchased a Phantom 4 Pro+. The controller it came with does not support 3rd party apps (dronedeploy, Pix4d, ect...) but works very well with the built-in DJI...

    We had a successful P4P first flight with dronedeploy app mission just now, everything went smoothly right from auto takeoff and auto landing, all images captured and are in sequence etc. A couple of questions: 1) While auto-landing, the sticks would still work so that we can nudge and...

    A couple questions about using the Phantom 4 Pro+ for 2d mapping. First off I did not realize that pro+ was limited in app selection for mapping when I bought it. I need advice please! I work in landscape design and we, primarily, work on large country properties. We would like to incorporate...

    Go app on P4Pro+ ?

    I would like to use DroneDeploy for mission data collection with a P4Pro+ with the built-in display. It appears that the app only runs on a smartphone so I'm wondering if it is possible to link an iPhone to the controller and bypass the built-in display temporarily.

    Phantom 4 "Twitching" when using Active Track

    First time poster here! I haven't really used Active Track much on my Phantom 4 but I tried it today. It acted a little strange, seeming to "twitch" when it began following me. Here's a link to a youtube video of this. It does it some at 19 secs, but even more so at 40 secs. Is this...
