Camera tilt angles with FlightPlan issue - issue redirected from Parrot CS&S


#1

Hello,

I am redirected here from Parrot Customer Service & Support. My issue is:

I am the user of Flightplan. I have an issue with camera tilt settings/values. My drone is Bebop 2 Power. The default camera position should have the value 0 degrees (as user user manual says). In Flightplan I have to set value around -14 degrees to keep similar horizon position, as camera in my drone has default just after switch on.
When I define the high values of the angle - I almost cannot see difference between high values as 70 and 80 degrees.

For your information - I do drone calibration and horizon trim regularly. Using Skycontroller, the camera angles are OK. It seems to be problem connected to use with FlightPlan only.

During tests I used two different Android devices - Huawei smartphone and Huawei tablet. I have no access to Apple devices.

I made reset of drone already - did not help.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Thank you for quick response.

Situation is a bit clearer now. Unfortunately it is only knowledge, that problem with tilt angle appeared already. As ordinary user of Bebop 2 I am not able to change anything - just wait for the software corrections. I do not see, that problem is solved, as it was imputed in forwarded posts…

Do I understand properly - the only way to have correct tilt angle values is just manual correction?
For example - to get 0 deg angle, I have to define -13 deg. in FlightPlan?
Correct me, if I am wrong, please.

I have the same question. Thank you!

I have the same question. I think the issue becomes more prominent when there is a POI in the FP. In firmware 4.4.2 I took the following steps as a workaround:
Waypoint 1 (WP) i set the camera angle as -5, which taking into account the tilt of the drone gave me a straight ahead view.
After each POI I inserted the -5 WP.
This seemed to solve the problem of the camera not returning to a default position after a look down or a POI
In 4.7.1 this does not seem to work, I cannot get that straight ahead angle, it always seems to be looking down.
