    I flew two WP missions Wednesday afternoon with no issues.
    Last night I drew a quick mission on my Shield K1 with the pencil icon to show some friends. Launched my Standard, flipped to F-mode and hit play. Got this error -
    Failed to upload the mission (reason: The damping check is failed).
    Anyone else have this or know what damping check is?

    Usually when you get this it's too many points in the path (or too many points too close together). Try using individual points instead of drawing with the pencil.

    Thanks for digging that up, I did a search earlier with the Phantom Pilots app and didn't get any results.
    Yes, latest version 3.6.5.

    Litchi support emailed me back, here's the (same) reply -
    "Hi,
    Are you using 100% as default curve size? If you are, try to reduce this to 99% or less, damping check means that there is a curve size that is either too large or too small (likely too large)."


    I can't recall what the curve size setting was last night.
    I will the check mission settings later this afternoon, I'm at work now and my tablet is at home.
