Flight Performance & Planning
When you fly a drone, you may be flying it with a ‘mission’ in mind. Perhaps you want to inspect a powerline or pipeline, do an inspection of a lighthouse, or map and capture an area of ground for a survey.
In more complex cases you may want to plan your flight so the drone takes a specific path. The planning can help achieve the mission goals but also help avoid restricted air spaces, keep track of flying height restrictions, battery life, etc.
