    Is there a way to set up a mission where you have let's say 4 waypoints, and have the bird stop at each waypoint to take a picture? I don't want to have to monitor and pause the mission as it hits each waypoint. I want a precision shot each time. I could set up 4 missions, but that's not efficient.

    Sure you can, using Litchi.
    At each waypoint setup an action to take a picture.
    You can't use curved lines though.
    Edit each waypoint, at the bottom of the list you can set your action

    On the GO app you can adjust settings and pause at each way point.

    Haven't used Litchi, but I'll have to give it a try. Thanks.

    You can use actions at any waypoint in Litchi if you do NOT select curved paths. In curved paths, AC never reaches the waypoint and thus action can not be initiated.

    Now I understand why actions are disabled with curves.

    Give a try and hardly you'll use Go anytime.

    We wish that Litchi changes the logic for actions in such a way that they get triggered when AC reaches the closest to the approaching waypoint.

    Just tried it out and it worked as advertised. I'll have to figure out some minor details, but it's pretty much what I was looking for. Thanks to all for the help.
