mdCockpit for desktops is currently the more robust of the two software options (the tablet app and the desktop software). However, the Microdrones software team is constantly working to implement all of the functionality of the desktop version in the mdCockpit app. The goal is that one day users will be able to do anything from their tablet in the field.
Today’s version of the mdCockpit app is powerful and works well for nearly all users. Some examples of projects that might require the desktop software include:
- Making the drone follow complex terrain
- Flying points of interest
- LiDAR applications
- Creating a digital elevation model
