Larger sites will require multiple batteries to complete the mission, meaning you will need to pause the mission in order to swap those batteries out. This guide will walk you through the process of resuming a mission that's already been started.
Note: Each sub-mission should be at least 10 minutes in length to guarantee enough GPS data has been captured by the drone for corrections.
Once you've planned and begun flying a mission, the drone will return to home once it's hit a specific battery level (typically 30%).
Resuming A Mission
After changing the battery out for a freshly charged one, power on the drone and tap the Fly button from the main menu. Tap the Missions icon on the left side of the screen.
You will see the mission list populate the left side of the screen. Since the menu at the top is set to Plan, any missions selected here will start from the beginning instead of resuming.
Change the mission list from Plan to Executing within the menu at the top. You will now be able to see all your missions that are in progress along with the percentage of the mission that has been completed so far. Select the mission you want to resume from the list.
Invoke the mission, and the drone will resume the mission from where it left off before the battery change.
I still can't do it!
