    Hey everyone-

    We have been hard at work on the next version of Autopilot for Phantom (1.2) and we are ready to start the beta test. Send an email to support@autoflightlogic.com if you would like to participate - we would love your feedback!

    Features that will make it into this version:
    • Data logging (settings, telemetry, controls, commands)
    • Point-of-Interest for several modes, including Focus, Hover, Follow, Orbit and Mimic
    • Updated status screen to show telemetry while looking at the camera and map
    • Constant altitude reference - useful if your device has no barometer and you know that you will not be changing altitude
    Features that may make it in this version:
    • 100% power ouput
    • Dynamic home point
    • Waypoint mode
    Thanks,
    Jim

    To clarify, which Phantom's will this work with? P2V and P2V+?

    I'm a little sad then that it's in the Vision section, and you're teasing us :(

    We are getting close to launching the beta, and I want to correct my previous comment: it looks like DJI has added support for the P2 Vision (not plus) to the SDK, so we are going to support that one as well.

    Quick update: We decided to add support for the Inspire and Phantom 3, which is making this build take a bit longer to prepare. The changes are significant enough that we are going to call this version 2.0!
