Howdy. Is Boeing simply an investor in the project or is this a project that they will actually be involved with and officially promote? If the latter, is there somewhere in the Boeing ecosystem that we can read about the project? Nothing wrong if they are just helping fund the project but it would be good to know the difference.

Best of luck,
Dave
Hey Dave - Great question! Boeing is more than just an investor - they're a strategic partner that we collaborate with to help advance our technology and address standards and regulations in the industry at large. As you can imagine, they have quite a bit of experience in the aviation industry that we're able to take advantage of!

Hello Len. At this time, the free version of SkyGrid Flight Control is currently available for use in the US, but we're not yet in the UK. We'll definitely let you know if that changes!

Just downloaded the app onto my iPad, and checked out some of the features (without being connected to a drone). These are my INITIAL thoughts...it's very basic and requires an Enterprise account for some of the advanced features. I would like to change my settings from metric to Imperial, but cannot find where to do so. The Settings icon just takes you to Help, no way to change units that I can find. Also, the available features to do a mapping flight are too basic, no way to set the overlap by percentage, and no way to orient the flight paths. This is going to take a lot more study and playing with - has some good and some bad, and I hope my mind will be changed after looking deeper into the app...

Hello! With the latest release of our app, you can now change between imperial and metric units. How to update units
