    I've created a Litchi waypoint mission to fly around a basically rectangular 5-acre lot. While flying around the outside of the lot, I'd really like the P4 to fly sideways, with the camera pointing toward the inside of the lot. The closest I have come to achieving this effect without manual intervention during the mission is to create a few points of interest (POI's) inside the lot and then set the waypoints to watch the POI. But that still has the camera moving from POI to POI instead of just pointing, say, directly west, while the drone is flying north. I suppose there is no way to set the orientation of the aircraft along the yaw axis while it is flying a specific heading?

    You can manually set the heading for any leg, so you could set no POI, set the heading for west so your drone will point west while your waypoint track has the drone moving north.

    As MacCool says, every waypoint has an indicator as to which way the drone is facing, adjustable in the app.
