    Hey all,

    Is anybody aware of any software/interface that enables you to mark a point in space, longitude/latitude/height/orientation? Maybe even gimbal settings...

    It would be really great if you could send the drone to a point in space and line up your shot. Save that point, and then have the drone return to it for a second shot/minutes/hours/days later to make timelapses that span multiple flights...

    I think you're talking about Groundstation? Not available on the P3 as yet but should be in the coming months.

    Could you not just mark a spot on the ground and take off straight up to the same height everytime to get your shot?

    If going by the p2v way points the accuracy could be way off from flight to flight.

    Or maybe save a previous flight as you do already in the app, but have it re-run the exact same path.
    It shows where you took pictures too, it might even do that again on auto settings.
