Atlas Flight: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

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.

Q: Is Atlas Flight compatible with all DJI drones?
A: We've tested Atlas Flight on the DJI Phantom 3, 4 and DJI Matrice 100. We expect most DJI drones to work but can not guarantee compatibility with all drones. Customers have also used the Inspire 1 successfully with the app.

Q: Does Atlas Flight account for flight restrictions present in my area?
A: Yes it does, as long as these restrictions are set in the DJI Go app.

Q: Can I create a flight plan for a field that is not a perfect square?
A: Yes you can. You can log into an Atlas account and import any field, even polygonal fields. You can create an Atlas account for free at
