    Hey all - just took my first Litchi and having a good time. A few questions!

    I was expecting a "radar" instrument like in the lower left of DJI Go, where it shows you the position and orientation of the bird relative to the RC; this is very helpful for keeping pointed toward her for max signal. It's not there on my iPad Mini 2 and I can't seem to find an option to turn it on - any ideas?

    Next, I was taking long-exposure photos at night and hit the "playback" button to review the shots to check the exposure, and I was pleased to see that unlike DJI Go, it simply shows you the last shot instantly, except that it doesn't...all of the "playbacks" I was shown were at the same exposure as I was seeing while flying - only when I opened DJI Go and hit playback did I see the *actual* stills which were much lighter due to actually being the long-exposed stills themselves, not sort of a video screenshot from the moment of photo-taking. This is super-weird - any ideas?

    Finally, I got her down around 20%, and about 10 seconds before hand-catching, she went into RTH, but unlike DJI Go, there was no option to cancel - in fact, I'm lucky nothing bad happened because she was still descending when I caught her. I've never let the battery get this low - might this be some sort of failsafe that's set in DJI Go? After some research I see that I could have put her in Atti and landed on my own, but I do wish there was an easy option to cancel RTH until critical battery level.

    Thanks for looking all!

    Litchi and DJI go apps are two different apps and you can't expect both of them to have identical features.

    Litchi doesn't have Radar. But it has better mission planning.
