    I have been using Litchi waypoint (ground station) religiously since I got my P3A about 3 months ago. It's been flawless thus far. My question is, when I build my mission, it's in video mode and at particular waypoints I can set a pause time and take photo. I haven't tried this yet but was wondering if it will work, or if I want to take stills in waypoint mode, do I have to start out in photo mode. Simply put, can photos be programmed to be taken while in a video waypoint mission. Thanks.

    You can stop video acquisition and then program it to take a photo. You can start in either mode and switch between them.

    Will it stop video automatically, take photo then start video up again?

    No - you have to tell it to do that.

    Keep in mind that waypoint actions are ignored when the mission "Path Mode" is "Curved Turns" as the aircraft will not stop at waypoints then.
