    I'm plotting a course on my Nexus tablet. In order to be precise, I've zoomed in on my starting point. However, my intended mission goes beyond. Is there a way to scroll the map over as I'm plotting? If I lift my finger Litchi thinks I'm done.

    Zoom out, use the pencil tool to roughly get your entire route plotted, then zoom in and make it more precise. Using the pencil tool, you can drag your finger along the route you want to fly and when you're done, it will place waypoints along the way, spaced appropriately. That's always an easy starting point, but I do quite a bit of adjusting after that.

    I suggest you to plan out your waypoints in fly litchi.com in mission hub section on a laptop or Mac. Save it to your account and later open it on litchi on your device.

    Planning on laptop or Mac gives you wider space, better zoom and you can check elevation of each point to decide the height of each waypoint.
