    I haven't been flying as much recently updated my Phantom, it feels like I am getting less distance ( Signal range)? Have they done something am I missing something


    I noticed that waypoints is out now. Correct me if I'm wrong but you need to fly the way points before you can create a route .? What the hell is the point of that .?

    Is there any way of doing this like the groundstation app on the Phantom 2

    Are dji going backwards

    I agree with your assessment about how waypoints was implemented... it's stupid and yes has gone backwards. Haven't noticed any less range... but then again I don't push the range to the extreme

    Personally I think the way points are to help you really see your location first and be there for the view and obstacles.

    Since I use the device to capture cinematic video I want to go each spot first to see what it looks like and for safety reasons. Then when I'm flying I can focus more on the camera work.

    So to me it makes sense.

    Litchi lets you do waypoints at home and fly them in the field. Works great in my experience.

    I have been on Beta for AirNest and it's a really nice app. You can actually use the simulator in GO and create a waypoint flightpath and save that and then load it up later in the field.

    Hey, now that we are on the subject of this way points. I thought you could yaw the quad as you flew your mission. I could not get my phantom to yaw as it flew the mission. I did a mission out in the open area to test it yesterday and it would not yaw around. Is there a setting that I have over looked?

    So do all these apps work with the latest software of DJ I .?

    And is it just a matter of downloading the app, no other modifications or software upgrades needed ?

    Airnest is still in Beta and will be launching on the App Store in the next couple weeks. It is compatible with the latest DJI firmware.

    Thanks!

    Will it be a free app ? Do you have any information what features it will have ? Also being a third party app how safe is it ? Will there be any restrictions for distance

    Our main features are the creation of smooth waypoint flights by simply drawing your flight path on a map. Also, in the Point tool you can control the camera by just panning and tilting your iPad or iPhone. Airnest also includes a tool called Flysafe which provides live weather updates for your specific location.

    Feel free to check out the Beta thread which I've linked below. Airnest is a DJI developer partner and our app is currently compatible with the P3A, P3P, and Inspire 1.

    Also check out the video on our homepage for a bit more detail about our app.
