    In waypoint setting, can I set longer hovering time in one point before moving to next points ?

    if I set waypoint 1 in 100 ft high, the way it fly from home point to waypoint 1 will be
    a) PV2+ auto uplifts 100 ft high from home point then fly to waypoint 1 in straight line ? or
    b) accenting linear flying mode from ground zero to waypoint 1 ?

    What I need is to fly over a 50 ft high building right in front of PV2+ (10 ft distance between home point and building), flying over the roof to the tennis court behind the building, then returning to home point.
    If it is a ascending linear flying mode, it won't be able to fly over this 50 ft high building or crashes to the external wall.

    Please advise.

    Set your first waypoint close to you at the desired height to clear any obstacles, otherwise the P2V+ slowly climbs to the first waypoint and will collide with obstacles or at the very least give you a heart attack. Likewise for the return. I set my first and last waypoints directly over me or close to it. :)
