    Hi! Is there anyway to fly the phantom 3 standard backwards while in intelligent flight mode using way points?

    You can yaw as your Phantom is flying.

    But will it change like I'm trying to set some way points and record my dogs running will it turn back around every way point?

    I haven't tried it. Give it a shot and see what happens.

    Waypoints have 3 options, 1 is free which means you can control it as you fly, it will stay facing whichever direction you set it to. The other option is forward in which case it flies forward and the last option uses the orientation when you set the waypoint and it transitions evenly between each waypoint. Each can be used depending on what you are trying to do....

    How do you chose orientation from the app?
