This software is fantastic! As a IT-professional I want to applaude the developes for thinking in the terms of modules/commands. Love it!
What is the status of the project now?
We are planning to release v1.0 in a few weeks. Have you tried the beta?

Yes, the concept is great!
They are in the beta test phase. Preparing for release. We are providing feedback to developers. I think you can sign up for the beta as well. You get some more info here about what is going on:

So far I have really enjoyed the beta version and know it will be fantastic when it is fully fleshed out. They listen to the users and are implementing suggestions as fast as they can. Jim and Eric are very responsive to questions and concerns; something you don't find with the other mission apps.

It's been good being in the beta. Great learning experience for me, and a chance to give feedback from the ground level.

I've had a look at Dronelink and was impressed with the concept but being a hobby flyer I find the price way out of my pocket. I will stick with Drone Harmony and Litchi, I wish you well with your product.

I assume you mean the recreational version of DH? The current version of Dronelink is definitely for professional drone users that are making money flying drones; however we may consider future versions for hobbyists and recreational use cases.

If you directly compare our plans to DH's pro and business licenses, our pricing is 3.5x to 11x less expensive.

I've enjoyed the beta, and am impressed with it. However, I am not a professional, and will not pay $100/year when I already have Litchi. I will look forward to the introduction of a version for "hobbyists and recreational users", though, so please keep us informed.

Yes I have the basic version of DH which does more than I require,so for a one off payment of £26 it is ideal, as is Litchi at a similar price. I might be interested in a version for hobbyists if it's a one off reasonable payment.

Understood. The primary issue with a one-time payment revenue model is the long term incentives for continued innovation and support are not there for the developer. We are really looking to avoid another Autopilot fate here. Obviously in the case of DH, they have a recurring revenue model for the other side of their business, so the consumer side benefits from their efforts on the business side. We decided to start with the business side for similar reasons. The goal is to become sustainable so we can have more options in the future for other segments of users.

KML export of a curved path to Google Earth for iOS. Blue line is Dronelink, white line a competitor. Do you see the difference?

Hey everyone,

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been heads-down working on my next project called Dronelink.

Dronelink is an entirely new approach to flight automation, and we are looking for beta testers on iOS, Android, and the web. This is a great opportunity for you to influence our product roadmap, and we would love your feedback. You can join the beta now, and our public launch is scheduled for later this year.

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jim McAndrew and I am a software architect and drone enthusiast from Austin, Texas. My passion for creating drone software started in 2014 with Autopilot, the first app for DJI drones in the iOS App Store. After Autopilot I cofounded Hangar and served as CTO until mid 2018. Since then I have been working hard to create Dronelink - the culmination of five years of experience and lessons learned. To those of you who have supported me along the way, thank you.

I look forward to creating the future of flight automation with you.

-Jim
Hi There
I have been a user of Autopilot for nearly 4 years, really liked it, but was disappointed when the program development cycle ended. I would like to be a Beta tester for your new app, how do I get involved..?

Regards

That is correct. Also, as stated here, we just updated the Explore plan to include the ability to create repositories (public and private), and create mission plans and components. You still need to upgrade to a paid account to actually fly missions with your plans, but we added the 30-day money back guarantee to the pricing page to take a step in the direction of offering a trial. More to come soon.
