DronePan and hdrpano APP 2018

DronePan   2018   is   redesigned   on   the   base   of   the   latest   DJI   SDK   and   possibilities.   There   are   2   new   shooting   grid   methods   linear (optimized)   and   full   spherical.   The   user   interface   is   based   on   the   DJI   GO   APP.   You   can   use   the   new   APP   to   shoot   manual   or   to film manual as known from DJI GO. hdrpano   2018   is   the   professional   version   of   DronePan   2018.   There   are   some   important   additional   functions   for   giga-pixel shooting in this APP. DronePan and hdrpano uses EASA  and FAA rules for mission code. That means no mission above 120m altitude.

Phantom 4 Pro Mavic Pro Mavic Pro anti distortion 1:1 hdrpano 1.3.1

Panorama settings

DronePan   has   inbuilt   settings   for   all   supported   aircrafts   as   Mavic   Pro,   Mavic   Air,   Phantom   3   Pro,   Phantom   4,   Phantom   4   Pro, Phantom   4   Pro   2,   Inspire   1   X3,   Inspire   1   X5   and   Matrice   100   X5.   Spark,   Inspire   2   and   Matrice   2XX   will   be   supported   with   SDK 4.6. If   you   select   the   panorama   Icon,   you   can   choose   between   linear   and   spherical   shooting.   You   can   adjust   rows   and   columns   if you like, but the APP has inbuilt optimized settings for best results. If   you   select   Sky   row   the   gimbal   pitch   moves   to   the   maximum   for   each   aircraft.   +30°   for   P3P,   P4,   P4P,   I1   +20°   for   Mavic   Pro, +15° for Mavic Air, 0° for Spark. Inspire 1 will use aircraft yaw and gimbal yaw if you choose Sky row. If   you   do   a   night   shooting,   you   can   use   „Multi“   for   the   photo   action.   It   will   take   2   pictures   for   each   position.   You   avoid   blurred images   with   this   method.   I   have   done   some   night   shootings   with   Matrice   2XX   and   25mm.   It   is   very   useful   to   complete   a shooting if you have 2 pictures. If   you   use   Inspire   or   Matrice   you   can   select   the   gimbal   yaw   method.   Gimbal   yaw   is   much   faster   and   more   precise   than   aircraft yaw. You can add a POI video section in the mission. That is very useful to document the shooting place. This   DronePan   version   supports   xml   export.   You   can   choose   the   number   of   zenith   shots.   Don‘t   forget   to   take   them   after landing.

Exposure and Camera Settings

Choose   your   preferred   settings   as   in   DJI   GO.   For   panorama   shootings   it   is   important   to   use   manual   settings   for   exposure   and white balance.

Menu Settings

In the menu settings you select grid on/off, image format, image size, white balance, styles and more as in the DJI GO APP.

Preflight security

You have always information about the safety of your aircraft. You can check the preflight checklist. Click on ready to fly..

XML

One   of   the   most   important   advantages   of   this   APP   is   the   XML   support.   With   XML   support   you   export   XML   files   for   optimized stitching   for   Autopano   Giga   and   PTGui.   After   each   shooting   you   export   the   latest   XML   files   who   documents   the   position   of   the camera   during   the   shooting.   You   can   use   iColud   drive,   google   drive,   one   drive   if   you   like.   All   these   drives   are   supported   from the APP.

MAP

On   the   map   you   find   the   pilot   position   and   the   aircraft   position.   If   you   take   the   shooting   away   from   your   local   position   it   is useful   to   show   the   aircraft   and   the   distance   on   the   map.   It   is   easier   to   fly   home   with   the   map.   If   you   take   zenith   shots   it   is useful to see the aircraft directions. The map show mission points too.

FAQ

OSMO support

DronePan does not support OSMO devices. hdrpano supports OSMO.

XML files

XML   files   are   storred   on   the   local   device   and   you   preferred   Cloud.   If   you   like   to   use   iCloud   drive   you   must   activate   it   on   iOS   11 or higher. 1 .     Go to Settings > [your name]. 2 .     Tap iCloud. 3 .     Swipe to turn on iCloud Drive. You can find your iCloud Drive files in the Files app.

AEB support

At the moment only single photo is supported. If you like to use AEB switch to manual shooting or use hdrpano.

Inspire 1 45mm

It   is   not   possible   to   shoot   a   panorama   with   the   45mm   and   a   single   battery.   It   needs   more   than   180   pictures   in   full   spherical mode   to   complet   a   panorama.   You   need   two   flights   to   take   a   full   size   panorama.   This   lens   works   only   in   the   hdrpano   APP   in split mode.

AEB

AEB   is   now   supported   with   manual   shooting.   You   can   use   it   for   all   aircrafts   as   Inspire   2   X7,   Matrice   2XX   RTK,   Matrice   600.   A long line means 1 shot for one column more than a short line. In the first column you must take the nadir shot.

Manual

If   you   select   manual,   then   you   have   the   rows   and   columns   on   your   pitch   and   yaw   screen.   This   is   the   first   APP   who   guides   the photographers   through   the   shooting   process.   You   can   use   it   for   mission   shooting   too,   to   control   aircraft   and   gimbal   yaw.   We use IMU online values from the aircraft to response all stat online.

YAW response

This   is   the   first   DJI   APP   who   uses   an   online   IMU   YAW   response   on   screen.   If   you   select   manual   on   the   shooting   grid   is   online on   screen   for   pitch   and   yaw.   You   can   use   +35°   pitch   angle   for   X7   and   +40°   for   X5S   and   Matrice   2XX   (first   APP   too   on   this point).

hdrpano APP

The   hdrpano   APP   has   additional   functions   and   different   menus.   If   you   start   with   an   Inspire   you   get   a   new   selector   on   the screen. ST | F1 | F2. ST means standard one flight shooting. F1 means first flight in split-pan mode. F2 means second flight.

Pitch for Matrice

 The pitch angle is supported up to +40° for Matrice aircrafts and +35° for inspire X5, X5S, X7 aircrafts.

Split first flight

For   the   45mm   lens   you   need   more   than   180   images   for   a   panorama.   You   can   split   the   panorama.   The   APP   calculates   all automatic.   After   the   first   shooting   you   can   change   the   battery   and   the   second   flight   will   place   the   aircraft   on   the   first   flight coordinates,   altitude   and   heading.   The   APP   uses   mixed   yaw   mode   for   split   flights.   The   APP   shoots   the   first   sky   row   with aircraft yaw. Then the APP uses only gimbal yaw for the rest of the panorama.

Split second flight

The second flight brings the aircraft on the first position and the shooting continues with gimbal yaw in full spherical mode.

Inception

The   hdrpano   APP   has   included   inception   missions.   If   you   select   inception   you   get   new   icons   on   the   screen.   The   first   icon center   the   gimbal.   That   is   very   important   for   inception   shootings.   The   panorama   settings   icon   changes   to   inception   settings. hdrpano   uses   5°   -   10°   -   15°   -   30°   -   45°   -   60°   -   75°   and   90°   gimbal   pitch   for   the   mission.   The   difference   between   0°   and   15°   is to important. We need intermediate pitch angles.

Inception settings

The   hdrpano   APP   uses   2   radius   for   the   mission.   The   start-radius   and   the   final   radius.   The   final   radius   has   to   be   bigger   than   the start radius to avoid distortion. You can choose the number of nadir shots to finish the mission.
