It’s official! D-flight released on December 12 u.s. – currently only available in the Google Play Marketplace for Android systems and not yet in the Apple Store for iOS systems – its App for consulting maps on the go through smartphones and tablets. Please note that the maps are also available through web browser.

The App will therefore allow drone pilots to consult the maps with the limitations provided for the airspace object of their operations. While postponing a guide to using the App for the next few days, let’s see what the released application offers.

D-flight App

As anticipated in the lines above, the d-flight App can be downloaded only on devices (smartphones and tablets), with the Android operating system at the following link.

The App available on Android systems from release 4.4 and later, (current version 001.002.337), has currently received a score of 3.3 out of 21 reviews, which means that it is not exactly the best. In fact, one of the current limits is given by the fact that the user must re-enter his credentials every time he accesses it (to register on the d-flight portal read the blog article “d-flight – Resgister your drone ( guide)“).

As described in the description of the App by Google Play, the App:

The app allows the use of the services of the “D-Flight” platform for the management of one’s own fleet of drones:

  • registration
  • profile management
  • consultation of maps
  • fleet creation and updating
  • consultation of manufacturers and models
  • QR Code generation
  • declaration management
  • consultation Drone Operation Area
  • consultation Drone Operation Plan
  • tracking.

App d-flight – Operation

To function properly, the d-flight App requires access to the current location of the device (and this is more than logical).

Once logged in, with the pitch on the screen, you can zoom in on the area of interest to read the flight restrictions present for the area.

By double-tapping on the area of interest and the subsequent tap on the icon with the i, it is possible to read the rules of the air for the area of our interest.

It should be noted that I find it very difficult to use the d-flight App through my smartphone for obvious reasons of visibility, but it is certainly more efficient and therefore usable to use the App through a tablet.

Note regarding the images: The image in evidence is taken from a screenshot taken on the personal Android device, as well as the images shown in the article. The maps and related contents are developed and owned by d-flight. The use of images within the article is for the purpose of a better understanding of the contents of the same.
