How it Works
In as little as three taps do autonomous orbits with object avoidance.

1) Tap on an object - like a building.
2) Optionally adjust height, radius, and speed of your orbit.
3) Fly.

Beta testing:
If you fly in the US with an Android device we are looking for beta testers.
Device needs a min of 2GB RAM and Android 4.4 or above.
Works on P3, P4, and Inspire.

FAQ
  • Will it verify the flight path against obstacles? In areas where we have 3D map coverage.
  • Will it work on all buildings? No, about 30 million across the US.
  • Will we enable it on other objects like overhead powerlines? Yes, but not in the first release.
  • Can I do different flight patterns? Yes, but not in the first release. Curious to hear your thoughts on flight patterns you want.

This is a great idea! Will it work with Inspire 1 too?

If your orbiting with OA, then your not focused on what your orbiting.....

I'm confused.

Before you fly Hivemapper will tell you whether or not you'll hit anything based on our 3D map of the area. For example, if you say I want to fly at 100 ft high and radius of 300 ft around building X we will come back and tell you that you will hit a known static object (tree, other building, etc.) on this flight path -- in the GIF above there is a frame that shows you the warning e.g. "According to our map you will crash on this flight." You should still visually check the surrounding area. For example, if a crane just went up on a construction site unlikely we will have that on our 3D map.
