    I'm looking forward to trying out the POI feature next week but all the videos I see show that it isn't perfect in keeping the POI in the centre. I can understand the many reasons why so aren't too fussed.

    I wonder if, as people have mentioned, you hover over the POI to set it, can the UAV do waypoint averaging.

    My handheld GPS does so I'd think it would be a firmware upgrade that could implement this feature. Hover for 30-60 seconds and get a more accurate measurement for the POI. Potential create a better video.

    POI is difficult because of gimbal yaw correction/damping (due to rotation), rather than GPS lock.
