I've been researching how to properly accomplish a Litchi Waypoint Mission. I'm feeling better around what I've learned, but I still have some curiosities I would like to understand better before actually doing it: 1. I'm assuming you may start a mission in two ways: a) just flying around in P-Mode, then drop the remote control in to F-mode, and then start your waypoint mission OR b) simply start the mission from the ground. The motors should spin up on their own and then head to the first waypoint. 2. If 1. is correct then I'm assuming 1. a. is the safest...right? Personally, I don't feel comfortable with the compass and general operations with the bird until I've gotten to stare at it just safely hovering for about 30 seconds first. 3. In either scenario with 1. how does the bird get to the first waypoint? If it is starting from the ground does it ascend to waypoint 1's height first and then make its way to waypoint 1 OR does it climb and make its way to the first waypoint at the same time? It seems logical that the first scenario would be safest, but I would like to be sure that in reality this is what happens. Additionally, would same hold true for starting a mission anywhere, that is, once the mission is started, no matter where it is flying, it first aligns itself with the same height as waypoint 1 and then and only then makes its way there? 4. Where does the scripting reside for the bird to know all the waypoint locations and their attributes? I've seen a number of videos where the bird loses connectivity with the remote control for a period of time. In some cases as much as many minutes (not something I plan to try). Ultimately, (and amazingly) the bird completes the full waypoint mission and returns so I've got assume the scripting to accomplish all this is uploaded to the bird itself when the mission is started...correct? How else could it complete the mission without connectivity to anything else? 5. I've heard a couple horror stories using Litchi Waypoints that I would like to try and avoid such as the bird just making unexplained movements on its own and potentially crashing. I haven't read many, but enough that leaves me reason for concern. So I would like to be sure I'm ready to bailout in a moment's notice if I see the bird starts reacting in a way I don't expect. I would assume the quickest way to do this is instantly switch the remote control from F-Mode to P-Mode...correct? Wouldn't this just take it immediately out of the waypoint functionality, stop the bird wherever it is, and simply have it hover? If so, this might even be a better process when completing a mission. Instead of having the bird RTH you could have it finish at Waypoint 1. I assume it would just hover there. Once there you are likely to be able to easily see it and then move it from F- Model to P-Mode and bring it in manually.
