I had my first flights today with the litchi app. I tried out serveral functions. Everything seems fine until following scenario:
I was using the follow mode in an wide open area with my car. I was driving slowly across an unpaved road. I stopped 2 times to try out different follow setting (Altitude, distance,…). During slowly continous driving suddenly the app shows “disconnected” in red. The drone was approx. 20m altitude and 20m distance. I was having dynamic home point activated and passed some trees in the opposite side of the drone - see picture. I can see the drone hovering and tried to reestablish the connection. Here is the moment where everything gets interesting. Seeing the drone hovering in front of me i thought the app should reconnect in any second, which did not happen. I checked the cable between remote and mobile phone.
I have an DJI Mavic Mini by the way.
Cable is fine. I did not know where the home point was set and tried to stay cool seeing the drone hovering over a cornfield. I closed the litchi app and switched off the remote. I started the dji fly app an started the remote again. Afterwards i tried to find the drone but it was gone. Suddenly i heard the RTH sound of the remote. Beeing unaware where the current home position was defined, i really was worried about losing my drone. I abortet the RTH function and could land the drone safely. A few seconds later and the drone would have landed automatically in the trees behind me. The home point was obiously defined at the last moment within connection, which normally is fine but passing trees in combination is not.
Why did the system lost connection in the first place and why is it not able to reconnect? Do you guys have any suggestions to reconnect?
I would like to use the drone with my motorcycle and make some follow shots. I really like the speech features in combination with headset in the helmet to check if everything is fine but if i loose connection during riding my bike i will not have lot of time to react. Helmet off, gloves off, getting the remote out of the bag,…
