There are two ways on how you can fly the drone:
- Manually with the remote controller: DJI provides an explanation what will happen in case of RC connection loss. You can chose among 3 behaviours in the DJI go 4 app. DH (currently) does not offer these options in the application, but the drone will behave accoring to the setting in DJI Go 4
- Automatic with waypoint missions
For the second case, in case of RC connection loss the drone will either continue the mission or hover in place, depending on what the pilot has chosen during the launch dialog:
In case the pilot has chosen "continue mission" the drone will continue to follow the flight trajectory, but for specific camera settings some functionality will not work anymore:
- "Precise images / not stopping mode of flight" recording mode combined with "App based" image triggering: The camera triggering will no longer work, which results in missing images.
- "Interval shooting (images every x seconds)" recording mode: The drone will continue to take images according to mission plan but the gimbal angle will no longer be adjusted.
Note that all the DJI fail safes still apply (e.g. auto-landing in case of battery running low).
In conclusion, we never recommend flying missions where you can experience a loss of connection between the drone and the remote controller.
