    Orbit, focus on center. Set altitude, radius and speed to your liking. Works like a champ.

    Cruise is good and the autoflight logic video tutorial is your best starting point (and flight school)...

    Use orbit mode, default min altitude is 7m. You can set a moving opearator if your tabket/phone has gps and you can adjust radius and altitude real time.

    There are quite a few excellent videos on their website. They go through setup and usage in detail.

    I use WP mode for everything. Even for orbit. Just waypoint nice circle.
    Then "SAVE" you can load and size it for any task. You can moved it a hair left or right if the car isn't centered.

    I have found cruise mode to be very sluggish with controller inputs. Inside of 50m control was sporadic and caused an incident before I could disengage.
