    Using Litchi Waypoints, I was able to successfully complete the 5 mile one way flight.

    I made it to my destination with 5 mins of waiting for it to arrive. Signal came back at waypoint 23 and I waited until it came into view at waypoint 29 before I took control and landed it. I had set waypoints 28-30 over the field at 200ft altitude to help see it coming. It was at 45% battery when I landed.

    It said 17 minutes but it did it in 15 minutes. I had the speed set at 28mph. I had a tail wind of 8mph but it maintained 28

    Have you tried 33Mph see how fast it make back ?
    Also if you fly higher altitude does it get slower or faster

    I'm not sure if I want to attempt it coming back. Not this location anyway. There's not much flat land and fields around me. All hills and forest. Also not sure how the altitude affects the speed. I never really paid attention to that.
