Yes, the application manage yaw gimbal as well as yaw drone to shoot in the correct direction without landing gear masking.

Does my DJI Mavic drone work with the SmartAerial PANO ?

Yes, but with the latest Mavic 2 Zoom, SmartAerial PANO App will be compatible. The other Mavic products are not compatible.

Caption process

How long does it take to shoot a Gigapixel panorama with the SmartAerial PANO ?

The global process depend mainly from two parameters, which are computed and stored from each template.
– The DJI camera performance for JPG or Raw processing,
– The focal of your lens which impacts the number of image per row
For example, with an Zenmuse X5, when your drone and camera are centered with the required camera parameter, you can capture over 10 pictures per minute. So the total caption of a 180° panorama is 4 min 30 sec.

How to make sure my panorama has the right angle ?

SmartAerial PANO provides two features to have the right framing and angle positionning.

1/ A Compass displays the gimbal degree angles in real time

2/ A “Capture Check” slider allow to know the four edges of you targeted panorama before starting the capture.
