Unwanted Hesitation - Litchi Missions

I've noticed in several of my Litchi missions that, for no apparent, reason, the drone will slow down dramatically for a moment as it reaches a waypoint, then pick up speed again. I understand the drone will slow as it goes around sharp corners, but these instances have happened during a path that's relatively straight.

In my most recent incident, I had each waypoint set to use the cruising speed, which was set as 25 mph. I had around 35 waypoints, and this happened a couple of times near the last 2/3 or so of the mission. I'm using the Android version of Litchi.

Any thoughts what might be going on here? This isn't a huge issue, but it kind of spoils the video when the drone slows down all of a sudden, then speeds back up.

Thanks!

Sure - what do you need from the mission? It doesn't appear the speed parameter comes across on the csv download, though, which would seem an important piece. Is there a different method to get you the mission?

That's interesting, as the waypoints I'm complaining about have 0 degrees of curve. I am, however, using the curved turns master setting for the mission.

Even if curved is selected, if the curve is zero, it will slow/stop. Just add some curve to it. If you add waypoints between existing ones, they will always be zero and you have to add the curve yourself.

Oh wait. Maybe I misunderstood. Are you saying that all you need to do is add a curve size to the waypoint without actually making it change direction there?
I’m still not sure that’s correct. I’ll have to test it. I just looked at a mission I have flown a lot around my property line and a handful of straight line waypoints have curve size of zero. And I’ve never noticed a hesitation.

This certainly seems plausible. Odd behavior on the part of the app, but certainly fixable! Thanks for the replies, all!
