    When using the Litchi way point settings is it possible that the drone loses contact with the controller and is able to finish the course set for it and then returns to the first way point as set up in the preflight ?

    Yes ... the waypoint mission will continue even if you lose radio signal.

    ...but it does not "return to the first waypoint." It continues to the LAST waypoint of your mission. Then it hovers and awaits your command.

    In Litchi - yes. It will be fine provided you don't run into a tree like I did.

    We wary of ground elevation changes. Here's a handy tool to check that: Distance Calculator

    You're welcome.

    Make the last waypoint back where you are.

    Good afternoon Gentlemen,

    Talking about way points i've seen somewhere on the forum a screenshot from The Drone flight path, another other words, a screenshot that contained the track from exactly where the Drone flew over during the mission.

    how do we get that flight path screenshot after the mission is done?

    Cheers!
