    Here is a teaser of the upcoming Autopilot Waypoint mode in v3.0, complete with Bézier curves, segment splitting, and size / rotation / position transforming:

    Crap I just purchased FPV camera mission planner. I might still purchase autopilot if the waypoint mode also works for the p2v+. Will it be compatible?

    I don't think so. I believe it's P3/Inspire/Matrice

    EDIT: whoops, misspoke. P2V/P2V+ as well are supported.

    Not available now, and not sure of release date. They're working on it. Active Beta thread is public over at Inspire Pilots. Jim McAndrews is very responsive. I think their general approach is to release when they feel it's fully baked and after a solid Beta period.

    Are there certain distance limitations like the DJI waypoint system? I cannot fly very far with the DJI waypoints so I am very interested in this!

    This is exactly what I have been waiting for, I think. What are the distance limitations for setting waypoints and does it give a battery or flight time estimate? The DJI Go waypoints are useless for me. First I do not want to fly a route then hope I have enough battery to then create the route in their waypoint generator. Thanks and appreciate the video!

    Good question. Guess we'll know more when it's in Beta.
