    First of all, do the actual DJI employees, software builders, technicians, etc... monitor this site? Regardless, I'd like to get some Ideas of what could be improved or added in future firmware updates.
    My ideas:
    1. Designable waypoints prior to flying.
    2. Same as above but with POI on or off.
    3. Same as above with altitude set as step 1.
    4. Multiple RTH points..... Like programmable SAFE landing points.
    5. Faster "Aircraft warming up" times.... Sometimes I'll lose 4% battery while waiting!
    6. Selectable LED colors while "OK to fly".
    7. Is air temperature an option?

    Maybe some of these ideas will make it back to DJI. I know there are some pro's and con's to each of these. Any thoughts?

    You occasionally see some here, but not often. They will see your suggestions if you post them in the DJI forum though.

    You could reset your home point after you take off. That'll update the RTH location mid-flight.

    This can be resolved with a cold IMU calibration.
