    Are there any real advantages to using this app? I am new to all of this. I have some range issues but it's cool. IF I understand correctly with Litchi I can plan out a route. Activate the route and it will fly the route even if I lose controller signal? So as long as I have battery life I can plan a long distance flight well beyond my signal range and it will work? Also I saw the radio channel option? Which is not available anymore in the GO APP? Any info is appreciated. I know it's just 15 bucks or what ever but I'd juSt to know if it's worth the time to learn it

    You can preplan WPs. Each WP will allow you to set Altitude, heading, focus, interpolate, curved or straight lines between WPs, POIs, etc.

    You start go app, set camera, although Litchi has some camera settings, close go app and then inside Litchi, select which mission, then upload mission to drone, then start mission.

    Litchi will fly the mission as the mission is uploaded to the bird not continuously communicated from the RC although you can speed up/slow down the between WP speed. You can also do that within app on the screen.

    I really like the idea that you can go to the website and create your missions, and then go fly them. I purchased the app, but apparently my devices are not "beefy" enough to handle it. Wasted $20 for me, until I upgrade my device.

    Galaxy S5 and an LG G Pad F. Won't run on either without choppy 3-5 seconds of delay. Unacceptable. I bought it, too.

    For this option is worth buying an app.

    But how well will it maintain on target when flying the drone around, or will it?

    Yes, will it. Works very well. The camera follow the target (tilt down and up) and the drone turns for pointing the camera to the target. Like Vertical app
