    I would like to leave on a ground station mission, where I need to raise up maybe 10' feet to clear a railing fly straight out 75' then drop down into a river basin 25' below my takeoff but it requires negative altitudes ?? I don't guess there is any way. ??

    I could hand fly it to the actual beginning point and then start the mission but then the first way point would take me back up so no good. Is there any way to do this other than hand fly it all the way the bring it back. Id prefer to program the flight due to the distance and my ability to see it well from beginning to end.

    Could I hand fly it down to my take off point, reset my home point while in a hover then do the quick little 3 way points program and then send it off to fly and return to the home position ?? ..........This last option sounds like it would work for this deal unless someone tells me other wise.

    I found a good place to test the theory tomorrow without being over water the first time. I will advise.
