    Anyone know what happens if I start a way points route far away from the start point of the route? Say I am 1/2 mile from the fist way point and I launch the quad will the Ph 3 fly there and then start the route?

    Yes... and it will give you a warning before starting. The P3 will also adjust it's altitude from it's current height to that at the first waypoint in a straight line while flying to that waypoint. If there is anything in between... it will hit it.

    Edit: I think the Go app has a limitation on the distance waypoints can be set (500m?). So I think this can only be done using 3rd party apps.

Two questions. Does the P4 Pro see the sun as an obstacle, and Litchi pause at waypoints? Control (Go, Litchi, etc..) Friday at 7:53 PM
