I recently purchased Autopilot (AP) for use with my Spark. I'll be learning how to use AP over the next few weeks. I wondering how many other people use AP with the Spark and what issues they have. I usually fly using an Ipad Mini 4 (IM4), but sometimes use and Iphone SE (SE). I will update this synopsis as I experiment. These comments only pertain to the use of AP with the Spark. Other drones may have better results. Time passes.... I have been experimenting Works GREAT (WG) 1. Waypoint mode WG. You can select a subject on the gps map or use the joystick to select subjects on the fly. 2. Target mode WG. You can select a subject on the gps map or use the joystick to select subjects on the fly. You can select new targets by touching the gps map and the AC will fly to them. 3 Orbit mode WG. You can select a subject on the gps map or use the joystick to select subjects on the fly. You can move the center of the orbit and change the POI on the fly. If you select "joystick" for the focus method, you can use the right stick to move the camera around without changing the path of the AC. Today I got the obit mode to follow me where ever I went!! 4. Black Box mode WG - but I don't really see the point. 5. Zip Line mode WG. You can select a subject on the gps map or use the joystick to select subjects on the fly. You can change the beginning and end points of the zip line on the fly or you can move the whole plan around on the gps screen. If you click the "Advanced" button during the flight, a slider appears. You can slide the button on the slider and the AC will fly to that point along the zip line. 6. Cruise Mode WG with some reservations. Scroll down to my post about cruise mode down below. After some practice, I am really liking the Cruise Mode. 7. Follow Mode - WG. At first I could not get the focus mode to work. I think my difficulties sprang from my use of the IM4. I switch to using the SE and now the focus mode works GREAT. I walked up and down the street trying all the options and everything I tried worked well. You can get "follow" to work with other modes as well. Unlike DJI, you can get the AC to follow you from any angle even in front. Does not work... no joy NJ 1. Focus mode NJ - but you can use the "Cruise mode" to iimprovise. 2. Pano mode NJ (so far). Progress has been made, read below in the posts. Still no cigar. 3. There is no way to review you pictures and video right in the program. I always review my stuff at the end of a flying session. With AP, you have to download the material. This is a little annoying but it is not a deal breaker since you can see what you are doing live as you do it. Not Impressed Focus methods - I like using "Subject" and "Joystick" as focus methods. I am not impressed at all with the other focus methods. So far I have not gotten the other methods to work well...but... the subject and joystick method is more than sufficient. By the way, "Focus" does not mean "clear vs blurry" as in a SLR camera. It simply means "where the camera is pointing". When you focus on a POI you do not make it clear, you keep the camera pointing at it. Super Cool - If your mobile device is connected to the internet, you can sit in your living room, or wherever, and set up flight missions that are miles away and you can do this with out having the AC or RC turned on. Just start the AP app and select a mission type. Go to map view and scroll to the place that you want to log a mission. Set up your waypoints, or obits, or zip lines and save the mission. Later, you can drive to the area, crank up your AC and AP app, load the mission and fly. This is super cool.
