    If DJI wants to let the phantom pilots set the waypoints on the map and fly them starting of the ground without any risks of claims, all they need to do is add an agree clause that user will check every time he uses waypoints mode. It should be something like that "user will hold full responsibility if drone crashes and causes damage etc....
    Flying waypoints this way is not really professional because it is not really a full autonomous flight from takeoff to landing.

    If you're a lawyer you will know that will never hold up in court.
    Just spend the money and buy a third party app that will do it.

    Actually, it probably would hold up in court.....consider our cars which have a speedometer that goes up to 120MPH or more. There is not even a limiter on it.....the driver takes the responsibility.

    BUT, the laws on drones are not yet established. DJI has the most to lose - by FAR. Therefore they want to err on the side of caution. I think that's a smart way to go.
