    Hey all, Been flying my Phantom for a few weeks now. I am curious as to if there is a way to have the Phantom fly a programmed route. Perhaps a circle pattern?

    Thanks

    That'd be a neat trick.

    I'd also love to see an update to the FC40 software to see altitude and other data on screen.

    I wish, but as i understand, the included camera does not have GPS capabilities. Therefore, it is unable to know direction, speed, altitude, etc. It could give a very rough estimate based upon the wifi network, but the data readout would be within the 600ft wide circle that comprises the wifi range. It would be absolutely inaccurate.
