Walkthrough:

It’s important to make sure that you have all the equipment needed for your drone survey before you head out to the orchard. All you’ll need with you in the orchard is your drone gear and a backpack containing a few extras.

Let’s make sure that you have everything you need:

1x Drone

Some spare batteries (fully charged)

1x Sandisk Gold SD Card

1x Drone Controller

1x Tablet
1x Tablet Holder

1x Controller Cable

And that should be everything!

Now that we know that we have all the gear that is required, let’s make sure that our flight plan is showing up on our tablet.

Preparing Litchi

Open the Litchi app on your tablet and sign in with the same account that you used on your computer.

Tap in the top left hand corner, this should open a drop down menu with multiple options. Ensure that you have selected “Waypoint” mode.

Click on the folder icon on the left of the screen, this should show a list of all of your flight plans

As you can see, your flight plan is in Litchi and is ready to go! You can now pack all of the gear up and head out to the orchard!

The last step is to conduct the survey in the field, to see that article, click here.
