    I've tried to save an "orbit" mission in Litchi on my IPad, but the screen doesn't give me the icons to do it. In the tutorial, which I believe is Android, it does show the save feature. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

    It's not an issue. It can't be done. Hopefully in the future it will be added. You will notice that the orbit radius seems to save from the last setup you made. So, you can set up the parameters any time and when you open orbit the radius will be set already.

    Many thanks! Now I can hit the sack instead of staying up to 1 a.m. to try and figure it out. Can't wait to try it tomorrow.

    Yes Save and Load orbit feature doesn't exist on iOS version.

    See below for Orbit:
    1. Go Home (Android only): Tap to initiate Return to Home at any time.
    2. Save Flight (Android only): Tap to save the current Orbit parameters.
    3. Load Flight (Android only): Tap to load a previously saved Orbit flight.
    4. Orbit Settings: Tap the point of interest marker to bring up the Orbit settings window (details below).
    5. Radius: The orbit circle is displayed on the map with a yellow line. It is updated in real-time if you change it during an Orbit session.
