I was doing a LiDAR scan over a 200-acre property which took 3 batteries. For some reason, when I landed my second flight to swap batteries, I noticed the camera shutter wasn’t clicking and when I transferred the data to my computer to take a look, only the “data” folder was there and not the other PPK PC painter, PC Master, etc.
This is very disappointing because now we have to re-do the entire project from setting ground control to the flight. This one little random error is going to cost us both time and money, so I want to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
What could have possibly stopped the R2A from recording mid-flight?
I went into the GUI to see if there were any answers when it landed, but it gave some kind of message like recording not available, please shut down ~~ or something like that. And, the USB definitely had more than enough space. Also, just 2 days earlier I did a 150-acre+ scan with no issues so I really don’t get why this happened today.
Any advice or thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
