    Is there currently an app that when doing a waypoint mission you can set variable speeds between the waypoints and not one speed for the whole mission...?

    You are aware that you can change speed enroute using the slider in the GO app, aren't you?

    Can you ease the right stick back or forward to decrease speed during the mission?

    Yes the litchi app for android, when you set the speed and altitude for the first way point it then loads the remaining way points the same. Then you can click on each way point to modify any settings and even change the stay time at the way point or to change it to a nice smooth banked turn.

    Yes I didn't want to do it manually en route.
    I'd prefer the litchi route then

    Confused by this answer, perhaps a new version of Litchi changed something. In mission settings the speeds are set - not in each waypoint. Manual says that you can accelerate (based on cruise speed being less than the RC speed) but doesn't mention reducing speed. Can anyone confirm that you can reduce speed (with joystick)?
    We have a couple of missions that are generally smooth but do include a couple of sharp turns that cause some stuttering with the camera.
    I also want to praise this app as being perfect for our mission-based flying.

    Just checked and you are correct. It's only configurable for the mission settings, not changeable for each waypoint.
