    DJI has confirmed that a waypoint feature will not be coming to DJI Pilot.

    Edit: The original post in the above thread is a bit old. Somebody just recently brought the thread back to life :(

    DJI employees in that same form have stated that Pilot will have GS. Blade Strike has also posted here that it will have GS. So we have different stories from DJI employees.

    Yeah, that conversation was "as of release" back in April.
    I think this is msinger volunteering to get-er-done :)

    ...kinda' like for volunteers where everyone else steps back! :rolleyes:o_O:D:p;)

    That's an old thread......look at the dates of the posts. It's already been confirmed it will be coming after that post was made.

    True. Tahoe Ed is usually on the ball though.

    Can someone tell me: is that option to set current aircraft position as a home point... This is not exactly the same thing of a waypoint?

    The communication in that linked thread was from April 9th.
    So that's not "just announced". The DJi support reps in other
    forums later said waypoints were coming.

    The ability to set Home Point at the Phantom's current location is in the latest IOS app and coming soon for Android.
    This is different from being able to fly a waypoint mission where you plot a track between a series of waypoints and the Phantoms flies the course you program.

    They already do and are just waiting on the firmware release to support it. However, those 3rd party apps each cost another $10 and its difficult to know which one works best for you. A person could easily spend $30 to find this out.
