    Litchi CSV to KML tool

    Google Earth is a quick and efficient tool to boostrap Litchi waypoint missions. Just draw different paths with an altitude relative to the ground, save to a .KML file, import to Litchi and you're done! At least apart from the cinematic stuff like POIs, curves, heading, camera... But often you...

    Mountains, Canyons, etc.

    I live in Taos New Mexico where we have mountains and canyons all around us. I am flying P3P and been at it for about 60 days. Started using the Litchi app to fly with Waypoints and better manage the camera for great video. I have a questions about accuracy, when building missions in respect...

    Max Alt = 400', but POI = 600' How to do this?

    I have my P4's max altitude setting at 400'. I launch along the side a small mountain (gradual incline) and the Point-of-Interest object (POI) I would like to video is on the ground but 600' higher than my launch site. Technically, the POI is only a few feet above ground level (AGV). Will my...

    RTH Altitude Considerations with Varying Terrain

    Is there a thread or web page that explains the various considerations when setting the Return To Home altitude? What I mean is how to account for various scenarios with varying levels of terrain? For example, if I take-off up on a bluff/cliff (my home point), which as 30' trees. Normally, I...

    Quick question about RTH

    Basically if I am already flying higher than my RTH height is set will drone stay at this higher altitude and return home or lower it self to the RTH set hight and them return? Or a combo of sloping down to the RTH height? I hope to test this some day but wanted your guys' expert knowledge.

    RTH altitude in the mountains

    I am about to fly a Litchi mission that I created originally in Google Earth. I will be flying up and down the side of a mountain to an elevation that is about 500 feet higher than the home point. The craft will fly at a constant 150 foot altitude AGL, thanks to Google Earth. My worry is, do...

    Lost signal at barely 100m (300ft)

    I just bought a new Phantom 4 and have taken it out 6-7 times so far. Everything worked perfectly fine until today, when I went up to 100m and suddenly lost connection. It came back down on its own and I picked up the signal again at around 80m, but then it kept saying the signal was very weak...

    Phantom 4 won't hold altitude?

    i have had my Phantom 4 for about a month now. This is my 2nd Phantom 4, so I have experience with the behavior of both. This post is in regard to my 2nd P4 drone. The problem that I am struggling with: When the drone is in P mode and airborne, I make a change altitude (10ft or more)...

    flying in the mountains with Litchi - relative altitude issues

    I just created a Litchi mission that takes my P3A up and down the side of a mountain. I used google earth to create the mission in such a way that the altitude above the ground is constant. This is thanks to this video I came across... Anyway, I am quite excited about giving this a try...

    Anyone have the same prob with P4? I know there are some P2 and P3 with same probs but also with P¤...Altitude change even in hover and P4 don't even give any real info about flight altitude. Check pic and altitude. IMU and all other things ok. Just took off, moved P4 slightly very slow any...

    Everyone's talking about distance, but how about altitude? 11500'

    This anonymous nut-job in the Netherlands flew to 11500' and landed with 4% battery remaining. Dutch drone world record 3,4KM high by DJI Phantom 2 Enjoy what NOT to do....

    Helicopter altitude

    I live out in a rural area. Yesterday, a helicopter passed by and it sure appeared that he was lower than 400'. When I have sent my Phantom up to 400', it is way up there and this helicopter looked to be below that level. I can't swear to it. He was not landing or taking off in that area...

    Standard Litchi Altitude Issue?

    I've been browsing the forums for a bit now, and I finally have a question. I've searched and can't find a solution. I starting using Litchi, and really like it, but an error keeps popping up. When I hit the play button on my mission it uploads to the aircraft, but then says that the...

    Almost lost my Phantom 3 Pro

    I almost lost my beloved Phantom 3 on Saturday night. I had a couple of drinks and then decided to fly an auto pilot mission using the FPV camera app (which I love by the way). I quickly typed in a few targets, entered about 15 waypoints, and let the bird loose. The mission was planned for 10...

    Updated Firmware, but P3P is losing altitude...

    Hello everyone... Quick question. Earlier today, I updated the Firmware to 1.6 (the most recent release) for my Batteries and updated the RC to 1.5 (it's most recent) update. Took the Phantom up to test it to an altitude of 20 feet and let it hover. After about a minute or so, it started to...

    What's your Minimum Altitude Flying Over Generic Trees?

    If you are flying over a bunch of trees that you have not carefully screened one by one (like woods or a Forrest) what altitude won't you fly below? I'm trying to see how much of an altitude wimp I am. I stay at 160 feet or above.

    altitude fluctuates wildly setting still

    After a hard landing, I am having issues with out of control flight. Bird goes up and down with no movement of sticks. Would crash if I didn't over ride what it is trying to do. I didn't think I was going to get it down. I was calling it down and it would descend a bit, go back up, start coming...
