Me and @PingSpike were swapping thoughts on iOS shortcuts and automations for setting airplane mode, brightness etc before opening a flight app.
Thought this might be worth a thread on its own.
So I’m bored on night shift and came up with the following
Self explanatory, but for the new users of shortcuts, you define a set of actions (shortcut) then place a home screen icon that when tapped sets airplane mode, 100% volume and brightness then asks what app I want to use .
Lets look at the ‘Stop Flying’ shortcut, you’ll notice the strange command, SPRINGBOARD in the last shot. Unfortunately when you run this shortcut the shortcut menu stays open so you’re on that screen, a quick geek around found the Springboard script which when run jumps you back to your main screen.
Little screen recording of it all in action
@PingSpike, all you need to do is add stop flying to your shortcuts and you’re good to go (or stop as the case is)
Only saw this post today so had a go at shortcuts myself. My little video shows a slight variation in that after the Actions Required prompt it opens UAV Forecast for 10 seconds so I can check wind etc then turns on airplane mode, increases brightness and volume then runs DJI Fly app. Done similar shortcut to other posts to put back to normal mode after flight. Thanks for sharing the shortcuts idea.
It is an Automation command so only works on opening or force closing the app
I am relatively new to ios and came across shortcuts the other week, then today I thought I wonder if anyone else has toyed with them and the Fly app and that’s when I came across this thread by Chris@milkmanchris
The automation shortcut I just found and it works great, and I am sure we all can add to it
