Had my first waypoint mission today with the Litchi app. I kept it relatively simple with 12 waypoints and 3 POIs, about three miles and 14 minutes long. Lost connection a couple of times but trusted it would do what it was supposed to and sure enough it performed flawlessly. I am a believer...

It can be a little unnevering to wait for 8 minutes to see the green light, but it's fun. Just double-check the heights of each waypoint. I was once close to sending it off to land in a lake with a waypoint that I unintentionally set too low, instead of flying over that.

Yeah I triple checked all my waypoints. Looking forward to my next mission.

I use today the new Litchi update! Has many goodies added!
Still, every time I plan a mission that I know it will be out of range of the RC, I start sweating and chicken out!
I got the felling I would never see my drone again !
I will try to get brave this weekend and see what happens...

I've done about 12 out of range missions so far. It totally works. I was 2 meters away from crashing it into the municipal landfill (totally my mistake, didn't check what was underneath my waypoint).

I have done many mission flights and Litchi never failed. I never crossed 14 minutes setting just to be safe. I spend too much time estimating ground levels at and on the way points using google earth. This gives me good confidence to fly in hilly areas.
