    If I use litchi to program a mission with waypoints: Let's say I'm flying on a level field. If I set a waypoint to be negative 10 feet (-10), what would happen? Thanks

    I neither have nor use Litchi so I will guess. Either the app will not allow use of a negative waypoint below level ground or, if it does, you can sell your Phantom for parts on eBay. Just my guess :)

    yeah, it won't let you set below 0 feet

    Yes, you can set it to below 0 feet/meters. I haven't tried but I would guess it would hit the terrain. Anyone...?

    Its for if your waypoints go downhill for instance. Be careful

    That makes perfect sense. If, for example, you take off from a cliff and want to drop down and fly below your takeoff point.

    You can set waypoints below 0 down to -200 meters.

    in answer to OP question, your Phantom will crash into the ground - given the appropriate assumptions since you said it was a level field and presumably your takeoff point was at said field...
