An Introduction to the SJRC Application
The SJRC application is a newly released app that is specifically designed for users in Indonesia. What sets this app apart is that it is the first of its kind to be available in the Indonesian language. This feature makes it extremely helpful for beginners who are just starting to use the application. With its user-friendly interface and Indonesian language support, the SJRC app is a valuable tool for pilots in Indonesia.
Testing the Application’s Range
In order to assess the effectiveness of the SJRC application, we tested its range capabilities during a flight. We flew in the direction of Metland Tangerang, possibly reaching the border with Jakarta. We hoped for a smooth and trouble-free experience with the application, allowing our fellow SJRC pilots in Indonesia to utilize it without any issues.
Reviewing the App’s Features
The FPB interface in the SJRC application is in Indonesian, making it easy for users to understand the telemetry data. The app includes a flight time template, allowing users to view real-time flight information. With the smooth performance of the FPV and ideal weather conditions, the application showcased its capabilities effectively.
Assessing Flight Performance
During the flight, the FPV performance was exceptional, with a clear and uninterrupted stream. The GPS accuracy was also quite impressive, with a reading of 15. The battery life held up well throughout the flight, and the range limit was successfully reached. However, it should be noted that the application limits the altitude to 120 meters in adherence to Indonesian aviation regulations.
Challenges in Dense Residential Areas
As we continued flying towards Green Lake City, the FPV stream began to experience slight disruptions. Despite this, the telemetry data for distance and altitude remained accurate. The speed averaged around 35 meters per second, showing no signs of major lag. The connection between the drone and remote remained strong throughout, and the application performed smoothly without any bugs or delays.
Pushing the Limits
We aimed to test the drone’s maximum range of 3 kilometers, even in densely populated areas. As we approached the 2-kilometer mark, the video feed started to break up, resulting in minor delays. However, the drone continued to function and we pushed onwards. At 1800 meters, the video feed stabilized, but as we neared the 2-kilometer mark, the signal was completely lost.
Exploring the Smart RTH Feature of Ground SCRC
Drone technology has come a long way in recent years, and one of the most significant advancements is the implementation of Smart RTH (Return to Home) feature. This feature ensures that the drone will automatically return to its starting point if it loses signal or encounters any issues during flight. In this article, we will discuss the Smart RTH feature of Ground SCRC and its capabilities.
The Importance of GPS Lock
Prior to taking off, it is crucial to ensure that the drone’s GPS has locked onto a signal. This will guarantee that the drone has a reference point and can accurately return to its starting point. It is recommended to check the remote’s display to confirm that the GPS is locked before initiating flight.
Initial Flight and Signal Strength
During the first few minutes of flight, it is common to experience intermittent signal strength. This is because the drone is still connecting to the surrounding GPS signals. It is important to be patient and wait for a stable connection before relying on the Smart RTH feature.
Max Range and Battery Interventions
In our test flight, the drone reached a maximum distance of 2100 meters before automatically triggering the Smart RTH feature. This is an impressive range, especially in densely populated urban areas. The battery level at the time was 73%, indicating that the drone still had sufficient power to return home.
Remaining Cautious as a Pilot
While the Smart RTH feature provides a sense of security, it is essential for pilots to remain calm and composed. It is important to remember that although the drone may be far away, it is still within a manageable range. If the battery drops below 50%, it is advised to initiate the return flight to avoid complications.
Safe Return and Wind Resistance
During our test flight, the drone successfully returned home despite facing strong winds and signal interruptions. The drone’s speed was approximately 367 meters per second, and it displayed some minor delays in the video feed. However, it managed to navigate through the challenging conditions and safely land at the designated home point.
Final Thoughts on the Smart RTH Feature
The Smart RTH feature of Ground SCRC proved to be reliable and effective. It ensured the safe return of the drone even in challenging situations. The application’s interface, which allows for easy monitoring of the drone’s location and battery status, was user-friendly and provided valuable information. Overall, the Ground SCRC with Smart RTH is highly recommended for drone enthusiasts and professionals alike.
The SJRC application proved to be a valuable tool for pilots in Indonesia. Its Indonesian language support and user-friendly interface make it accessible and easy to use for beginners. The application performed well in most scenarios, but faced challenges in densely populated areas. Overall, the SJRC application is a commendable addition to the drone pilot community in Indonesia.
