Maps Made Easy Drones Made Easy

Options Menu

Tudor -

As of Map Pilot version 2.0.0 we have moved most of the camera and flight related settings that used to be in the Settings menu to their own new location that is access by tapping or swiping down on the top status bar.

This is the Options Menu.

Tap or swipe down on the status bar at the top of the main mission layout screen.


The options menu is where the layout and camera related settings are accessed. The values are not persistent and need to be checked before flying.


The new overlap control allows for separated along track and across track adjustments. Guide text tells you what overlap settings are best for what kind of environment.


The Options Menu can be hidden and shown by swiping up and down to allow for more room to see the effect you changes have on small screens.


The Maximum Speed setting which used to be in the settings is now located in the Options Menu and allow for live updates of its effect. The slider value is really just a user defined maximum. Lots of other factors go into what the actual programmed value will be. Read more about that here.


The Max Time is a slider to define the mission timer. The shown setting of 17 minutes means that the aircraft will land very close to 17 minutes after takeoff. The battery limited setting (all the way at the end) will allow the aircraft to fly until it detects that it needs to go home.


The Ground Offset slider allows for mapping a plane that is slightly higher or lower than the takeoff point. Read more about Ground Offset here.

    This functions needs adequate explaining. It may need a manual with pictures! I'm competely lost with the discussion as are some of the other commenters. Does Zane work for Offset setting: dronesmadeeasy? I'm not familiar with these discussion boards when there's no actual documentation to interpret. From what Zane describes it sounds like this feature is actually critical and must be set correctly if there's elevation changes within the flight plan. Please provide more thorough explanation because I live in a hilly area and I need my new drone to provide useable map for construction. thx

    I'm very different, i want to map a shopping centre roof when i'm standing on a car park structure beside which is actually above the roof.
    Does Offset help with this?
    I need to be above the roof line so i can keep a close eye on the aircraft.
    These explanations might be ok for those who created the software... for operators it is appalling.

    Adam: We are sorry you find our online documentation inadequate. If you need more information on the Ground Offset feature we would recommend reading the article about it which can be found here:
