Improve workflow: Battery low -> battery swap -> resume Merged

to continue flight path by bringing the aircraft to a manual controlled landing point, then resume the flight path as planned. Or initiate an intelligent path back home in as straight a manner as possible while keep no fly zone avoidance as a priority, then resume the flight. Perhaps you already have a resume flight capability feature in your application? If yes then the hot swap for the Inspire 2 should be a lower priority as fewer I2 being used in this community.

    • Resume flight is implemented (Select during launch dialog in preview the "resume" option.)
    • Logic for automated returning home for battery swap is not implemented yet. RTH is also not ideal, as it interrupts and loses the mission progress. -> TODO for us.
    • Inspire 2 hot battery swap basically works out of the box, as long as you keep one battery in the drone during the swap the drone stays connected to drone harmony.

    Overall the battery low -> battery swap -> resume mission workflow has still a lot of room for improvement.
