DronePan 2.0 is better than ever with a new UI and functionality. A special thanks to Kilian Eisenegger for all his hard work and contributions to this project. If you have any questions about this version please join our Facebook group:
DronePan is free, open source, and makes it easy to capture panorama photos with your DJI Inspire1, Phantom 3, Phantom 4, Phantom 4 Pro, Mavic Pro, Spark and iOS Device. You can use the live FPV screen to fly to the appropriate altitude, frame your shot, and DronePan takes care of the rest. DronePan will take photos at the necessary yaw and pitch with your aircraft. The process takes less than 3 minutes to complete and you can then fly to another location to begin another panorama.
Keep your DJI drone within line of sight when using DronePan.
Update your aircraft to the latest firmware before using DronePan.

When you land your photos are ready to be stitched together with your favorite panorama stitching program. We highly recommend using PTGui or AutoPano Pro.

Ratings and Reviews
Great addition to the Arsenal! Free? 7 Stars
Just downloaded this new version anxious to try it out on my DJI Phantom 4. The functions I tried worked great. Used 8 (vs 6 default) rows when shooting, as it’s worth a little extra time to get the best spherical quality. Yet to use it to stitch, but so far, so good.
It is nice to be able to start the panoramic shot process and just let ‘er rip. I have had to visually monitor VRs before on a shot-by-shot basis, and never tried spherical shots (or at least 180º hemispheres, in the case of horizon=>down shots) because of the hassle of lining up that many rows. Now…no problem!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Works for me!
I currently own a Mavic Pro, a Phantom 4 and a Phantom 4 Pro. I've used Drone Pan on all three of my Drones and other than a couple of times facing directly into the sun (forgot my camera hood) I've really had no problems with this program!!? Which makes me wonder under what situations the people who stated they had problems had?? The only time I had an issue was when DJI HAD A VERY buggy firmware update but that was corrected in a couple of days! I've made some very good shots with Drone Pan!
Does Not Work With Mavic Pro
I really wanted this to work but it doesn't take the photos. It looks like it is following a plan because it will rotate in a clockwise position but it does not take photos and gives an error that it could not complete the pano. What is encouraging is that there does not appear to be any drift during the session. My biggest problem with some of the auto panning apps is that the drone drifts all over the place, making the stitching process a major pain. I get that this is a free app and that it can be difficult to keep up changes from DJI but feel like I wasted time in trying to get this to work. Sorry.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
