I will post drone videos of Lunar Crater, Project Faultless and Reveille on the Rachel web site soon. I also took some updated stills of these areas. Hard to believe that it has been 19 years since I took the photos that are up now.

I mostly use the Litchi app. It allows putting together a "mission" on the computer in a GE-like UI. In the field the drone then flies it mostly autonomously, even if it goes beyond the range of the controller, or out of line-of-sight. The latest version of their software allows altitudes relative to terrain elevation, which is nice. The biggest drawback is that while the drone flies a pre-programmed mission the gimbal pitch is still controlled by the remote controller. If you lose the signal the gimbal pitch is off. I hope they will address that in a future version.
