It is something that many pilots have been longing for, for quite some time now. Ever since the removal of DJI’s Ground Station app from the AppStore pilots have had to look at other apps like Lichi, Autopilot and others to fill the space DJI left behind. I am of course talking about planning and controlling automatic flights with DJI aircraft.
Today DJI has announced it’s new and vastly improves DJI GS Pro, short for DJI Ground Station Pro. As described by DJI;
“GS Pro (also known as Ground Station Pro) is an iPad app designed to control or plan automatic flights for DJI aircraft. Through its clear, concise interface, complex flight missions can be planned with a few taps. GS Pro will then automatically take pictures at pre-set waypoints, providing the accuracy required for precision mapping. A Virtual Fence feature increases safety and ease of use by locking the aircraft’s height and speed within a designated area. With these features, GS Pro dramatically increases the efficiency of various industrial applications, including but not limited to, aerial imaging, architecture, precision agriculture, electrical inspections, search and rescue,
safety control, and more.”
