    I know the firmware update isn't out yet, but I wonder if anyone knows in general...

    During autonomous flight with multiple waypoints, do you have to keep in range of the DataLink so the NAZA knows what the next waypoint is? Or, does the NAZA store all the waypoints and then do its thing?

    Basically wondering it the Phantom will abort the mission and return home if a waypoint is outside the TX range of the DataLink.

    Does anyone else wonder about this or am I just confusing myself?

    Thanks. I get the feeling nobody knows for sure because no one has dared to fly BVR autonomously.

    DJI's documentation on the current ground station states that it will continue the mission even if it looses GS or Tx connection. But, I have yet to see any anecdotes proving both, and I certainly haven't tested it with mine.
