Mission Upload Error in linear mission

<div></div>
 
633/5000
 
Because when trying to load a mission in my DJI Phantom 4 Pro, through Map Pilot, it does not finish loading the mission?, Simply appears the error "Mission Upload Error", I have already tried to return to do the mission, load another mission, change position, I'm standing less than 5cm from the drone, and nothing, still does not load the mission, it seems to be the problem of the update, because the day before the recent update, was flying normally in similar conditions. I need it to work, I'm doing topography work and without doing this I do not do anything.
Attached the images of the error, I hope you can solve it.

On 3.0.1 you may need to turn the along track overlap up a bit and turn the across track down a bit. 3.0.1 has an issue with the radius calculation so if you have the along track overlap set to a high value the flight radius gets too small.

We have submitted a fix for 3.0.2 that we hope will be available soon. Upping the along track and decreasing the across track will give you the same overlap just with different geometry.

Same here, today was my first mission with 3.0.1 version and got this message no matter what. I was also standing 1m from the drone (Phantom 4 standard). Originally i was planning a linear mission and then i tried a standard grid mission but the same message appeared. I tried over 10 times. I closed the app, i reopened it but nothing. No other apps was running at the time. Clearly a bug. I had to fly with Pix4D Capture which resulted in much worse planning (had to fly 2 missions).

Thank you for responding, but, when will you be launching the update with the solution of that error? My work depends almost exclusively on its "Terrain Aware" function and its linear missions, without which I practically do nothing, and lowering the overlays is not an option for me since I have to meet a minimum requirement established by my client, I am thinking of moving to the "Bussiness" version, which apparently has not been updated and appears not to have this error, am I correct?

I get the exact same message using 3.0.1 and a normal mission.

Seems to be related to a 2 battery mission. I tried several times on a mission that just barely needed two batteries, always stopped at 97% with that error. Another mission using much more of the second battery always stopped at 64%. So I made a one battery mission and it uploaded without problem.

But... and this may be unrelated and TMI, conditions of that "one battery" flight and my 35% low battery warning forced it to land for a second battery a little over the half way point (205 of 336 total images). Changed batteries and resumed just fine for a minute or two but then the app crashed. The P4P continued to fly but I didn't know if it was taking pictures. I double clicked the home button on my iPad and it showed Map Pilot still running. Tapping that took me to the opening screen of Map Pilot (Create New, Saved, File Manager, Settings). So I re-opened the saved mission and I could at lease monitor the location of the aircraft, it was following the mission, but it didn't appear to be taking pictures. I let if fly a few more minutes anyway. I don't know when it stopped taking pictures, after the app crash or after I re-opened the mission. It only took 30 more after the battery change.

BEven i don't think it is related to 2 battery missions. My mission was 8 minute linear (1 battery). Then i draw a normal mission (again 1 battery mission) and i got this message every time. Also my overlap was 80/75.

I also noticed that it stopped at 97% and then pop up the message.

The last update does not solve the problem, as in my work I can not delay, I had to buy the Bussiness version, and it worked perfectly, I hope they fix the problem, I can not imagine how many people like me will depend on this application for their jobs and can not access the Bussiness version, I hope you can quickly solve the problem.

Renato: You have some really weird waypoints going on there right around the purple dot in your screenshots. Clean that up and it will likely be fine.
