Select your area of interest and configure settings:
1.) The screen switches to an overhead view of your surrounding area. Find an area of interest to outline by panning and zooming the view, then tap the Draw icon from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
2.) Then, as prompted, use your finger to draw an outline of the area you would like to survey.
Continue drawing until the line fully encloses the area.
3.) Based on your outline, the Site Scan app formulates a route for Solo to fly in order to survey the selected area. To configure additional settings for your upcoming mission, select the Options icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen.
5.) Within the Options area, you can adjust the map resolution with the control on the left side of the toolbar. You can choose one of three different resolutions for your photo:
- LOW: fewest waypoints, fastest completion time, flown at 400 feet
- MED: medium number of waypoints, medium completion time, flown at 200 feet
- HIGH: greatest number of waypoints, high completion time, flown at 100 feet
Also in the Options area, you can toggle Throttle Failsafe: Continue In Auto Mode. When this option is on, even if Solo and the Controller lose communication, Solo continues its autopilot mission and lands when the mission is complete.
The third Options setting, Survey Type: Use Spline, lets you choose how the computed survey path is interpolated through the turning points. By default, the path changes at the turning points are sharp angles, but if you turn on the Use Spline option, the path through these points is a smooth curve.
6.) When your settings are configured, tap Done.
