 Direct Repeat Flight allows the path flown before to be repeated immediately offline, without having to connect to the cloud.

Together with the current repeat flight which enables sophisticated recreation of a flight path from the log with Airpeak Base web app, users can choose the perfect repeat flight from two ways depending on the situation to accurately reproduce the same flight path multiple times.

In addition to the settings such as aperture value or shutter speed that can be controlled currently, more detailed camera settings such as the drive mode or the file format are now supported. Adds camera models that can use focus-related functions such as displaying a focus frame and moving the focus point in some focus modes.

Moreover, thumbnails can be displayed on the lower right of the screen when still images are taken during a flight by turning on "Display still images taken as thumbnails" in Display of the General settings. With this function, users can confirm that the still images are properly taken. 

Note: The items that can be controlled differ depending on the camera model.

  • New compatible camera model

ILCE-7M4 added as a compatible model. The preset parameters in Main tuning of the Gimbal settings are also available.
