    Hey guys, is there any way to use something like Google maps to set way points that you want to fly to? There's a area way out in the everglades that I want to fly to and photograph. I can find it super easy on Google maps but when I scroll around in the go app map I'll be dammed if I can find it. Thanks much.

    Yes, if you are using Android you can use Litchi to preplan and fly missions.

    It doesn't replace, just a alternative, better in my opinion for many things but not all currently.

    Please remember all camera settings are done in dji go, though litchi is working on putting them in litchi. Also, only run one app at a time, and if the default app picker pops up make sure you choose "only once" every time you open either litchi or dji go
