March 2022 Fly Forward Update
Who does this article apply to?
The following sensors have a required update as of March 2022. Green Sentera Sensors on DJI Drones
Historically, green Sentera Sensors have been flown facing east. This ensured that the image heading was always known: East. Images could be easily placed on a map. There are advantages to flying in the direction of travel. Most stitching softwares such as Pix4D expect imagery to be flown facing the direction of travel and flight plans are optimized when flown facing forward.
Sensor firmware updates in March 2022 allow for green Sentera Sensors to accurately determine their heading and tag images accordingly. The iOS FieldAgent App update sets the default behavior for DJI drones with a Sentera Single or Double 4K to fly facing the direction of travel, removing the need to face the drone east when those sensors are selected.
