EVO II Continuous Video Waypoint Mission Success
You'd think it would be easy. Just start the EVO II video recorder, then start a waypoint mission. But setting the correct camera action at each waypoint is crucial to keeping the Autel Robotics drone from stopping the recording, often right after Waypoint #2. I had success by setting the Waypoint Mission default Camera Action to "--" rather than "Start Recording." I also set each waypoint's Camera Action to "--." I started the video recording manually with the remote's left camera pushbutton right before starting the mission. No waypoint Camera Actions were set to "Start Recording" or "Stop Recording." The drone will automatically stop recording after landing, as usual. The "--" camera setting is hidden in the dropdown selection box unless you scroll the box down to find it. This mission was flown with Autel Exploer App V1.11.37, Flight Control firmware V0.0.4.58, Camera firmware V0.2.32.77. and Remote Control firmware V184.108.40.206 on 9/24/2021 with a Version 2 EVO II 6K Pro. The drone still pauses at each waypoint to yaw to the next route heading. Coming from experience with the Yuneec Typhoon H's Curved Cable Cam feature, I'm not a fan of the waypoint pauses. But I'm glad I got the EVO II to leave the camera running through the mission! 4K video, edited with Pinnacle Studio 23. It would be nice if the Autel manual explained all this.
