    Does obstacle avoidance work when in a Litchi Waypoint mission if it's turned on and if so what happens if obstacle is encountered?

    Thats a good question indeed, i guess the lack of crashes suggests it works or people havent considered that and have been lucky/careful in their planning, who is gonna try it? :p

    I'd guess it doesn't work on my P3A.... (a bit of humor)

    I'm curious too but don't own a P4. I'll speculate that it does since Litchi uses DJI's SDK software. Scroll down to sensors on the developer's page:

    I'm also curious as if it will hover in place or continue the mission

    Path finding around a obstacle would be nice. All you have to do is just draw a path in to a building, set the cruise speed to slow, and see what happens. I would try myself if I had a P4 or Mavic.

    Litchi has responded to me on Facebook....

    Litchi Hi, it works if enabled in settings. It will go around/above if it's possible
