    FPV Camera, my favorite app for iOS just added 'Orbit' mode to its Mission Planner.

    And it did NOT disappoint one bit.

    The conditions were windy today, more than I like to fly in so just used my house as the POI.

    It kept my house right it the center of the video without any problems.

    It has many features and I will be using this feature a lot.

    Any chance to share the orbit footage?

    FYI, when you fly an orbit mission, you may use both joysticks to further control aircraft in real-time as below.
    • Radius: Right stick forward/backward
    • Speed: Right stick left/right
    • Height: Left stick forward/backward
    • Yaw/Heading: Left stick left/right when Heading = RC

    I have been playing with the above controls while in Orbit.
    It makes for some interesting videos.

    One thing I would like to see is being able to make the POI off center to the circle.

    You may play around with the "Heading" setting as below.
    • Forward: Fly heading forward
    • Backward: Fly reversing backward
    • POI (Point-Of-Interest, default): Fly facing inward toward POI
    • Outward: Fly facing outward of POI
    • RC: Control aircraft heading by RC yaw joystick
    • Initial: Fly heading toward initial angle upon orbit mission start
