Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and to the Pilot App (after having flown the Vision+ for about 5 months).

I really like the Pilot App from what I've seen up to now, but at the first glance I have two ideas how to improve it.
Sorry if this is the wrong Forum or a similar thread should already exist. But if not, maybe this could become a thread where everyone can post his suggestions for the improvement of the app.

So, mine are:
I would love another option for the two buttons on the back: "Gimbal straight" or something like that, which means, the gimbal should then look straight forward with 0° tilt. I find it hard to find that exact point with the gimbal wheel. A similar option is already there with "gimbal up/gimbal down"
When in p-mode the app shows your current status in the upper middle ("safe to fly with GPS" etc). But as soon as you receive a low or critical battery warning, this appears at the same spot (blinking red) overwriting the status. Would it be possible, to leave the current status there and have the battery percentage go red (as it already does) and blink? Or maybe have the status and the warning in the upper Center, but alternating?

I would like to see a shutdown for the P3 in the settings.  Not something you can mistakenly hit, rather a slide to shut down the bird.  Say 10 second countdown with cancel button.  So if It sits on a shelf or on the floor, you can disable it before touching it.  Also like to see a stealth mode.   No lights at all.   Waypoints of course.  Those are coming.

@BlackFlake : you can already set the function "Gimbal mode" to C1 or C2 : the Gimbal mode changes from "follow" to "fpv", back and forth.

When using imperial data the I thing vertical speed should be expressed in feet per second.

I would like there to be a tutorial and help facility. You seem to have to learn by trial and error

I would like to have the ability to point the camera on a target and it keeps that point when I more the right, left, up or down.  Let it control the camera pitch and yaw. Or maybe I sure just practice more. :-)

I find the actual choice of measurement units a bit unconfortable. You can either go to Imperial or metric but I am not satisfied with any of those options
Would be great if the App would let you choose the units to use for each specific field.
For instance I would like to have something like this:

Height in feet
Distance in Meters or Yards
Vertical speed in Feet per minute
Horizontal speed (Ground Speed) in Knots


Those are the usual aeronautical units used for flying in the USA and Europe and I am sure many people would appreciate this opcion.
I do not think this would be dificult to implement and would surely enhance the user experience.

Thanks

Some very good suggestions above.  Here's mine:

The settings are divided into 7 pages: aircraft state, MC, RC, HD, battery, gimbal and general.  I would like to see them reorganized to include a pre-flight checklist page, so that compass calibration, RTH altitude, etc, are all in the same place.  DJI would set it up in the order that their engineers recommend.  Basically, this would be the only page you would need to worry about before taking off, and going through this page would ensure that you don't forget anything.  The other settings that you adjust from time to time would remain on the other pages.

A way to disable the Camera Settings Dial.  It never fails.... I set up my shutter speed and ISO the way I want.  Take off, and fly line of sight, and move the dial, and mess up my settings.    It would be nice to get my settings calibrated, and then "lock" the settings, so I can't accidentally change them.

Is there a composition grid overlay in the app? If not, this would be useful for composing using rule of thirds.

When you have C1 or C2 programmed to return the camera to forward view, have it S L O W L Y return the camera to center, at the same rate that it's programmed  in the Gimbal Wheel Speed setting.

Ok here is my 3 sugestions from a guy who lives from aerial shoots and videos since 3 years now ... always useing DJI

1) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DJI !!! add a Smoothing option on the APP so we can make the gimbal to stop gentry and no abrut as it does when you relese the weel.
2) An option to custumized and save camera settings on both photo and video modes, so with pressing just one button we are ready to go the way we like it.
3) Point of Interest and waypoints

And also if you can change the gimbal wheel for a slider on the back right side to move the gimbal tilt it would be lovely !! it is really difficult to use the same hand for trhottle yaw and Gimbal.

I totally agree with this, when shooting buildings this is my single biggest headache.  So much effort goes into trying to make tilting and panning moves smooth, I'm know the drone could do it better.
