  • Low-battery RTH is not triggered automatically when in Assisted Mode
  • General bug fixes and performance improvements
  • Manual 1.9

WingtraPilot & WingtraOne 1.8 - June 2018

  • Terrain following: Use of elevation data ensures flight safety and consistent map resolution
  • KML import with option to add polygons automatically to your Flight Plan
  • Increased landing reliability
  • Flight performance improvements
  • Performance improvements for WingtraPilot
  • Support of Google Ditu terrain map
  • Basic WingtraPilot support of Japanese
  • General improvements in camera identification and communication
  • Support for RedEdge-M payload (for WingtraOne ID > 1135)
  • Deep integration of QX1 incl. 20mm and 15mm lenses (for WingtraOne ID > 1135)
  • Manual 1.8

WingtraPilot & WingtraOne 1.7 - April 2018

  • Faster geotagging on Android 7
  • Improved failsafe logic for high winds and low battery
  • PPK support - WingtraOne systems with ID > 1135 are PPK capable and need to be operated on version 1.7.0 or newer
  • Manual 1.7

WingtraPilot & WingtraOne 1.6 - November 2017

  • Introduced a “ground elevation offset” to map areas that do not lie on home altitude.
  • Altitude above sea level (a.s.l.) is given when WingtraOne is connected.
  • “Loiter Waypoints” are introduced that define how WingtraOne flies between different areas. Additional Loiter Waypoints can also be added manually.
  • Improved visualization of Flight Plan.
  • New “battery swap & resume” feature that allows you to plan large Flight Plans that can be executed in several flights.
  • Enabled flight logs download by connecting the tablet to WingtraOne with the USB cable.
  • Geotags (position and orientation) can be exported to a csv-file. The format of the csv file can manually be specified.
  • Possibility of setting negative side-overlaps for applications that require a large sample area but no stitching.
  • Airspeed calibration required newly before every flight. Blowing into the airspeed sensor is not required anymore.
  • Ability to set connection loss timeout parameter. This allows the user to fly without RC and telemetry connection for a specific number of seconds.
  • Multiple reliability and stability improvements.
  • Extensive improvements in sensor failure handling and state estimation robustness.
  • Various safety enhancements, improved flight behaviour in windy conditions.
  • Increased level of detail in flight log information and better error reporting.
  • Manual 1.6
