Any time frame for when we might see being able to slow mission speed based upon  less than 2 x GSD  and not affect travel speed to and from?

 

"I get the motivation for it. I think your idea of having a setting for limiting the GSD is a good one that can easily be implemented.  (Dec. 2021)"

This is still on the list. We will try to get to it in one of the next releases. It ended up being more complicated than initially expected.

Thanks for this !  Question.  How do you interact with the setting?

What I mean is when I change the GSL from one setting to another and then go to the new mission panel, the ground speed the app is presenting does not change.  Shouldn't the calculated speed drop as you select a smaller multiplier?

Sorry. Missed that one. 

If you want the flight path speed to be slower select a smaller GSD limit with .5X being the smallest available. 

It will get adjusted according to available light conditions during flight because there is no way of knowing what the prevailing light conditions will be ahead of time.

hmmm..  speed depending on lighting basically equals speed dependent on the camera's exposure setting, correct?  But, there is no input for that until a camera is connected.

So, for planning purposes, there is no way to anticipate the speed except for prior experience, even if you have a good idea of what the exposure settings are going to be, is that correct?

Correct. When trying to limit smear you have to take the exposure time into account. STI is the only way to get zero smear. Beyond that the only way to minimize smear is to adjust the speed.

Haha, Zane, I think you're working too hard! Of course I know that speed causes smear. I'm the one that suggested this setting remember?
My question is there that there is no way in the app to estimate speed for a given setting for planning purposes the way you have it set up correct?
Maybe you could provide the equation the app uses when it actually sees the exposure setting and I can make myself a spreadsheet from there to plug in exposure setting to facilitate planning?
