    I think I know this answer to this, but another opinion does not hurt. I have my mission set up. I also have a POI for every point to catch the view I am aiming at. If I have the Gimbal pitch disabled will the camera just look straight out? If so that is what I want. I have no desire for it to look down at the targets just level in the direction of the targets. Thanks for the info.

    If you have a need to take video in the direction of travel you shouldn't need any poi.

    Would look something like this:

    Ok that is what I thought, so basically I just need to adjust the heading in the direction I want the camera to shoot. Thanks.

    If you do use a poi and you want a straight look ahead, then set the poi altitude the same as your drones altitude.
