I´ve been flying 20-30 litchi missions with my P4, everyting working fine, no problems. But today something strange happened. I was flying a short preplanned mission over the harbour, and as the P4 was entering a curve on the return path, it just stopped. First i thought i´ve lost connection as the video link seemed to freeze, but i soon realised the connection was good, it was just that the drone had stopped and was hovering about 60 meters above water. I bit shaken up, i hit the RTH, and the drone came back right away.

If anybody could have a look, here is the link for the flight :

Right before point C, it is supposed to go into a smooth curve, changing POI from one point to another, but zooming in on the map reveals that it seems to struggle right about here. Shortly after it stops and eventually i hit RTH.

Most of the Litchi missions i´ve flown is much longer and partially without connection. Luckily this was not one of them. If it had been, i guess the drone would have stayed and hovered until low battery where the RTH would have kicked in or... ?

Check the speed at that waypoint, hope its not set to zero by mistake :). You can load your mission on Mission Hub and share it with us.

Dirtybird had a Litchi mission where his buddy's Mavic Pro stopped during the flight, almost costing the drone's life. If you have time, watch this video which may show a similar incident occurring with your bird. Somehow, you may be losing GPS lock, which is strange since your bird was out in the open.
