2. Materials in Stockpile Measurements! ⛰️


Now assign density & materials to various stockpiles and automatically calculate:

  • Tonnage (lbs/ft^3)

  • Monetary Value ($)


Simply click on the stockpile and add the relevant information to compute tonnage and more!


Additionally, you can now colour code your stockpiles and export them in the PDF Reports. Who doesn't like things being organised?

3. Faster Facade Mapping ⚡


We have improved the performance of facade planning on the hub.

Now plan flight paths around complex shapes and structures!


Facade Mapping can contribute to higher quality 3D models when used well. Watch our latest video on how to do this well.

4. New Cameras: M30T and M2EA-T 📸


Say hello to new cameras for planning! Now pick M30T and M2EA-T as additional cameras to plan your missions for high-quality data collection. These cameras will sync from the Hub to the App and allow you to plan your flights without having to setup custom cameras.


5. Azimuth Measurements 📡


Looking to understand the orientation of antennas on those cell towers? Cell Tower Mapping projects now allow you to measure the antenna azimuth, slope and length all through a single measurement!


To use this option, please ensure that your project type is set to 'Cell Tower'

Please note that the waypoint corner radius is currently not visualised but will be in our upcoming versions.


4. Compass Calibration 🧭


Uncalibrated drone? No problem, you can now calibrate the M3E and M30 series directly from the Android app. Save time by switching less between Hammer Missions and DJI Pilot 2.
