Matrix 600 Pro

Hi

I use the Matrice 600 Pro with a Lidar and not connected to any camera. I am have a few problems which I will list below.

  1. Can I fly without a connected camera

Regarding attached picture

  1. The software is not communicating. I have the PAF in F mode
  2. The Controller shows -38%. This cannot be correct

I have updated all the firmware on the Matrice.

Appreciate your help

Do you have a Ninja OBC Onboard Computer installed? Map Pilot can only take off if it knows what the imaging payload is. Without the Ninja OBC it will not be able to identify the payload.

Hi

Attached is a screen shot, as stated, I do not use a camera but a lidar sensor.

How can I work around this problem.

The app does not include the Ninja OBC hardware. The Ninja OBC is a custom onboard computer system that allows Map Pilot to communicate with other devices that are installed on the aircraft. 

We do not currently support any lidar systems with the Ninja. Only a few Sony cameras and the Parrot Sequoia camera are supported at this time. 

You can read more about it here:

Nothing in the documentation or iTunes states that Map Pilot is compatible with any lidar systems. The M600 Pro is well supported with DJI cameras and a few external cameras but only when the Ninja OBC is installed.

Thank you for the explanation.

The lidar which I use on the Matrice, is not the only flight option I use.

I have other DJI drones for Photogrammetry work using Map Pilot. How do I aquire a Ninja OC? Where do I find the list of external cameras?

The Ninja OBC is only available through Drones Made Easy as a part of a professional mapping system or as an add-on that you must ship your aircraft to Drones Made Easy to install.
