    Just got my P3 Pro today. Previously had the P2 vision+ v3. From what Im reading, the P3 Pilot app does not you do waypoints. Is this true? And also when you bring up the map, it lets you make a line called guides. What is this? Thanks.

    Does not have waypoints yet. Drawing the lines will presumably be how you do waypoints once its available. For now it just looks pretty.

    No, the line is way to personally create a restricted flight area, such as structure or area you personally do not want to fly over.

    As of now the 'guides' are a kind of manual 'geo-fence', marking an area to avoid or stay out of, at a later date with updates I hope it becomes a true geo-fence, allowing the quad to avoid or limit flight into the area marked. This would be great for more than one flyer in the same area, could divide the area into flight zones that would not interfere with other pilots.
