    What would happen if you selected a mountain peak as the target. ?

    As you got closer the object gets bigger and bigger and fills the whole screen (except for the sky i guess).

    How close would it go ?

    I have some peaks near me which are quite distinctive (and under 500m high, just)

    It just keeps going until it reaches it distance limit either through the App or out of range then come back. If it reaches the top the the Collision Avoidance would make it go over or around or hover depending on what you set.
    I'm still trying to find a use for TapNFly other than just flying in a straight line since you can't move the camera around without changing direction.

    I have done a few shots where I think Tap to Fly would be amazingly useful. If there is a distant object you want to fly towards, it is extremely difficult to fly straight at it without making minor corrections along the way. And those corrections generally show up in the video. It will be great to not have to worry about that and use Tap to Fly instead.
