Can I get some feedback (Pro's and Con's) from folks who have used GS Pro.  It's a DJI product, but there isn't a lot of conversation about it.

Robert, the threads of GS Pro are spread in many sections. Most threads can be found in Pro System section, please check there.

Ground Station Pro is an improvement on the original. It's pretty comprehensive and includes such perks as a 3D map. Here is a link for more information on this point: http://www.dji.com/ground-station-pro

Been to the site... Read the page... I am wondering how it really works, by those who use it... One of the other mods said I should check out the Tech side of the forum.... but thanks for the link... I really do appreciate the effort.

I have used GS Pro quite a bit for rock quarry mapping via my Phantom 4 Pro.  It works better than Map Pilot for DJI, Pix4dCapture, and DroneDeploy in my opinion.

Pros: The Phantom can be calibrated straight from the app.  No need to jump back and fourth with DJI Go 4.
I can see battery voltage while flying. Big plus, I lost a Phantom 4 while using Map Pilot due to a dropping voltage that I did not see via the app.
I can unlock advanced unlock zones natively in the app.

Cons: I wish it showed approximate locations that the photos were taken while mapping.

Yesterday a whole flight line failed to take pictures and I had to re-fly.

It only works on iPad. I wish I could use my iPhone 7+ as well.

It does not flow the drone down to account for low lighting. (Reduces image smear).

Let me know if you have any specific questions. I've mapped about 40 sites using the app so far. Over 100 with Map Pilot for DJI (my second favorite app).  I've even flown a site twice with both apps and the image spacing was about the same.

Appreciate it... I will do some practicing with it this weekend.... Hope they turn out good.

Thanks!

Many industrial uses for the drone will use the Ground Station. In a way it is to help with consistency of work.

Hard to mess up too bad with the app.  Just figure out what you need for overlap specs and if you are mapping a flattish area or an area with steep vertical terrains.  This will dictate if you need to angle the camera other than straight down, mapping vertical walls is better done at a 45 degree angle.

I just did my home lastnight... only 16 pics... and all at the same elevation.  I am assuming that it will not be pretty... Thanks for the update though...

What are you doing with the photos? Just stitching a ortho photo using Photoshop? Or actually trying to extract 3D data using a software or a service such as Pix4D?  I mapped some rock quarries for a client in Maui this week.  Aloha!

Please note that GS Pro doesn't have flight record. Therefore, please be careful when you fly your drone. Have fun!

Drone Deploy and it was my first time using it.  I found out I need way more pics than I gave it (Still learning)
