Hi Guys

I decided to add a point of interest as I'm flying 300M (circled red on the left)

but the altitude is listed as 1M (circled red on the right)

does this mean that the actual drone will lower to 1 metre or is that the angle of the camera/gimble to face down?

cheers in advanced

Altitude of a POI will guide the camera to look at that height. For example if you want to take pictures of people, set it at 6' where as if you want to take pictures of buildings you need to set say 100'.Hope it clarifies.In short, altitude settings of POI will decide the tilt of the camera.

For example, if the building height is 100' and you want to point camera to its middle, set POI altitude as 50'

Also note that all altitudes are with respect to the home point. Having said that first workout the elevation of the ground level of the POI and then workout the effective altitude to be set.
