    Hello everyone. Im new to drones, and as my first, I went with a P2V (not the +) for cost, and so if i screw up, I dont crash a $1,000.00+ drone. I plan on flying this one for 6 months, then upgrading.
    My question is.. when programming a waypoint flight and taking video during, is there a way to make the front of the drone face the center of the triangle shaped flight path the whole flight? I want to fly a route a small local lake, but would like the camera to stay pointed towards the center of the lake. Is this possible?

    Short answer. No. With Litchi (Android only) or Ultimate Flight (I think Android and iOS), you can program circular paths and have it point to the center. I have only tried Litchi. It is a bit herky-jerky as it goes around and will likely need post production to smooth the video. It seems to approximate the circle with a number of straight lines. This results in video that rocks back and forth as it adjusts flight paths.
