Re: FreeFlight Pro V5.0.1 flight plan

Well for me i would let other people fly or maybe fly over water....i wouldnt worry about them or me crashing into water with a minimum altitude set.  Dont understand why they would take off minimum altitude setting. In my opinion best setting feature they had.  When i couldnt judge altitude on a dive but didnt have to worry bc i trusted the minimum atltiude at 16 feet.  Also i cant connect on 5 GHz wifi anymore either...talk about going backward in technology.  I hate publicly trade companies...

I was also wondering about that: does setting zero altitude allow me to land? If not... How would one land, pause, and then take off in a flight plan now?

I'd say yes. You can send the Disco on flights exceeding the geofencing limits.

Re: FreeFlight Pro V5.0.1 flight plan

So should I update my free flight app or not?  What version is better?  Can I still send my disco on a 20 mile flight plan without connection with the new version flight pro app?

Hi @Blueliner31

 

Having attempted the same flight plan again, I can confirm that RTH is indeed not activated upon connection loss and was merely a misunderstanding due to the drone entering loiter mode to gain altitude.

 

My apologies.

@TomLonsdale34 I haven't tried yet with the new version, but several reports show that the RTH is NOT activated during Flight Plan upon loss of Wifi.

Very disppointing. Not longer possible to set the RTH delay or the RTH enabling during flight plan...

FreeFlight Pro V5.0.1 flight plan

Hi all

 

Attempted a flight plan with my Disco yesterday after updating to FFP 5.0.1. Upon connection loss, the Disco initiated an RTH instead of carrying on.

 

I checked the settings and noticed that the option to make the drone continue the route appears to have been removed. Is there any way to make the drone continue at all?
