DJI releases Ground Station function for Phantom 2 Vision and Phantom 2 Vision+

Dear friends,

Although only five months young, dronologista blog has grown and needs a new attire.

As of 1st of September, dronologista.com moves to a new hosting, new address and slightly changes the appearance . Content will remain the same, and dronologista will continue to provide information about non-military drones only.

Enjoy!

On June the 24th, DJI has released update of the Ground Station function for Phantom 2 Vision and Phantom 2 Vision +.

With the new update, Phantom 2 Vision pilots can set up to 16 GPS waypoints by simply dragging pins into the area map.

Once the pilot has set up the flight path, he or she can focus on filming, and let the Ground Station app do the flying. The app also features “Go Home” button, which brings the flyer back to the initial launch position. Also, the pilot can switch from auto to manual flying in mid-flight.

Key features:

  • flight plan with up to 16 waypoints (including altitude and speed setup)
  • “Go Home” function
  • 5km flight distance limit
  • 500m maximum flight radius from home point and 200m flight altitude limit

Current owners of the Phantom 2 Vision and Phantom 2 Vision+ just need to update the Vision app for Android or iOS, as well as the Phantom’s firmware, to version 3.04 to start using it.
