What's New

Version 2.78.0

We have improved swapping batteries on multi-battery flights with a new splash screen that streamlines the mission flow and eliminates bugs.

We now immediately warn pilots to take over manual control when we detect that the drone has lost GPS connection and DJI switches into ATTI mode.

Bug Fixes
Plans flown offline have the correct flown status
The Precision 3D House app is disabled for unsupported drones
Intercom messages will not display during the checklist or while in flight
Flight plan share emails link to shared the flight plan

Menu won’t get out of the way?!


I went out two days ago to a fairly populated area and used the app w no problem. Today, I was out in an area with just 1 3G bar. (I say this because reduced service is the only difference I could see) and today, the menu wouldn’t get out of the way!!!! The little arrow on the menu would switch directions but not disappear. Thankfully I had an iPad handy and although clunky was able to get the jobs done today. Normally love this app but this problem will reduce the likelihood of others in my business using the app.

Has potential

VERY frustrated. Just downloaded the app to take out for a trial run. Using on an iPhone X. It takes a dozen or more taps to get the tab to close the slide out screen. I tap everywhere around and on it. Occasionally it will close but it's random. Deleted and reinstalled the app, and hard reboot the phone. Still doing it. Unless I can close the side panel consistently the app is useless. Tried again, and several touch screen functions are not reliable. Also the top portion of the panel is hidden by the screen sensor notch of the iPhone X and frustrating because I can't see what is behind it or select it.

Very nicely done but outrageously expensive. In the past, my agency would utilize Google Earth and Litchi to build gridded search patterns when looking for “something” (law enforcement search and rescue). Drone Deploy solved the issue of having to export KML files from Google Earth but that small step comes at a HUGE price. The cost is too high for the simplicity that it provides. Looking forward to a huge price reduction then we’ll be interested in a subscription. Until then, we’ll use Litchi and Google Earth.

Developer Response

Hi there, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We have put a lot of thought into our product and pricing plans to come to what we think is fair for our services. We don't have any plans to provide a price reduction at this time.
