Top Down perspective for SAR w/photo ability (timed interval)

Along the same lines of your Top Down perspective I am keenly interested in using the app for non-professional, read local volunteer, of SAR use (Search And Rescue). I see this in the Top Down plan with the ability to take planned video or interval (timed) still photos as a great resource in helping the local sheriff's office. I had the opportunity to assist them 18 months ago but not with this capability. When you come out of beta I'm hoping these will be an affordable method to do just that. Thanks!

    Thank you Jay,
    It seems we have this feature already implemented. You can choose between video recording and timed photo interval shooting when you launch a top down flight plan. 

    Or do we miss something? 

    Let us know - we can always reopen the idea, once we see together that your idea is not already covered by existing features.

    Best regards,
    DH Team

    Thank you Mr. Fuchsberger. I guess my real concern was when you come out of beta your aim would be more towards the enterprise solution making it unaffordable to the consumer/prosumer in the catagory I mentioned- volunteer SAR use.

    Hello Jay Lyons,

    Thank you for sharing your concern. For future pricing we intend to offer two versions of the planner:

    1. A hobbyist version including all features for making nice photos & videos. It will be priced competitively to current prices you see on the mission planner market.
    2. A professional version including professional flight plan computations. The professional version will offer significantly more value to what you see on today's market and thus will be priced at a higher price

    I do not know yet if your volunteer SAR usecases will fall entierly in the first or second category. But rest assured we can always work out a solution.
