Hello all. Wondering what your thoughts are for using web ODM with the mavic mini. I don’t own a drone yet, so I don’t know about any of the limitations for them, any help would be appreciated. One of my biggest concerns is the use of JPEG as the only image format.
I have a mini. It’s the same camera that was in the original Mavic, and it’s OK for many things, and a good little drone for the price. It feels like a toy, doesn’t take the wind well, but is remarkably capable.
@smathermather, I thought so since it says Mavics are supported, but further reading reveals that DJI have yet to release the SDK for Litchi to make that happen, so I guess it means only some Mavics.
@kevinnem, maybe hold off on Litchi until DJI decides to play ball.
Or maybe go with a Parrot Anafi, which has excellent support with Pix4D (as it should since Pix4D & Parrot are the same company) and really rudimentary flight planning via an add-on for Parrot FreeFlight 6.
I think I’m sticking with my Solo forever, to be honest
Due to the rippling/smearing? From what I’ve heard from the Bebop2, it shouldn’t be too bad at all under normal flight conditions since the “window” on the sensor is so small and the readout is quick enough. Is that not trued for the Bebop2? I was tempted to get one for agricultural survey since it’d be way more robust against the dust/dirt.
I bought a Mavic Mini a few weeks ago, having previously had access to a Mavic Pro. I’ve used both with ODM, and as a casual user I couldn’t spot a real difference between the output. The Mini is a little less capable in wind, but where I live it’s usually either nearly completely calm or windy enough that you can’t fly either of them, so it’s not an issue for me.
