Map Pilot Error Message

I received this "Mission Upload Error" message while flying my mission today.  I have flow this exact same mission several times before with no issues, why now? Can you please provide a fix?  Thanks! Jennifer

Hmmm... What version is this? Please send us the saved mission .mme file. Depending on altitude and overlap settings you may have to fly harder to have some of those really tight turns in there.

Not sure what you mean by "fly harder"?  Also, I have flown this exact same mission, with no changes, at least 6 times over the past year.  Same altitude/overlap.  I have changed nothing.  Why am I all of a sudden getting this message?

Sorry, TRY harder not FLY harder. It looks like you are just covering a large area which should be done with a normal mission layout anyway. That isn't really the intended use for a linear mission layout. 

We haven't received the .mme file via email to test with.

A fix might be to use less passes and snake it around differently if you are getting that error. You are basically turning too quickly for having so many passes so there are some corners that can't be drawn properly.

Do you have an email address I can communicate with you on?  I have the saved .mme file but can't post it here from some reason.  Thanks!

The email address for mapping support is mapping@dronesmadeeasy.com and is at the bottom of the Maps Made Easy site.

This is likely an issue with some of the corner angles. Linear flights aren't really meant to be used in that way. You would get better results for a survey area of that shape if you just did a normal mission.

Here is a link to the mission.  Let me know if it came through ok.  I still don't understand why I've been able to fly this exact mission in the past with no issues, at least 6 other times.  I need to be able to fly around a wind turbine, not sure a normal mission will allow for that?
