    I'm Setting a course of 4.7 mile, one way with 16 way points. Licthi is telling me (Way point is to far) What does that mean? How do I fly this, I know it's not to far, Because I have flown round trips farther then that.

    Not two CONSECUTIVE waypoints. On their site it says CONSECUTIVE waypoints. My mission is also 4.5 miles round trip and I get the same message as you do. When I contacted litchi, they told me the mission is longer than 2000M and out can't be done

    IIRC from other threads, the first and last waypoint are considered consecutive...

    In older versions this limitation does not exist ;)

    Well, I wonder where I can get an older version at. I just hate when one buys something and then the company changes stuff that was why the reason I bought it in the first place! :(
