Atlas Flight FAQs

Note: Atlas Flight is no longer supported as of 2019. Although you may continue to use the app, it may not be compatible with your drone or camera.


Q: Can I create a flight plan over my fields in Atlas? 
A: Yes you can. To do this, you simply need to log into your MicaSense Atlas account in Atlas Flight, and select a field. A flight plan will then be created automatically for that field.

Q: How can I be sure the flight plan I create will result in stitchable imagery?
A: Atlas Flight creates a flight plan optimized for RedEdge or Sequoia, based on their unique specifications. The user sets the desired altitude, overlap and flight speed, and the app creates a flight plan that reflects that. For the best quality images, we recommend setting the overlap at 75% or higher.

Q: Do I need to configure the camera's settings myself, or can this all be done within Atlas Flight?
A: This can all be done within Atlas Flight, unlike other Mission Planers.

Q: Is Atlas Flight compatible with all DJI drones?
A: Atlas Flight is compatible with any DJI drone that utilizes its mobile SDK. We've tested and validated the following drones:

  • Phantom 3 and 4
  • Matrice 100
  • Matrice 200 v1 and v2, as well as Matrice 210 v1 and v2
  • Matrice 300
