Mission Rosemont with our DJI Mavic Pro


The Mission

Fly our DJI Mavic pro programmatically from a near-by play-area to our home. The drone will be flying autonomously, crossing a lake and landing in our backyard. My daughter will be the co-pilot and will sport the drone and follow the approach checklist.

Mission Accomplished

Today (December 13th, 2020), accomplished the mission of flying our DJI Mavic Pro drone from a play area to our backyard, flying a distance of 900 feet, autonomously. My wife and two daughters helped spot the drone and encouraged me to go ahead with this mission. Without their help, this would have been a mission impossible:).
