    Hello folks,
    I am going to start using waypoints for the first time with my vision+
    And have a few questions.
    1) when it's on it's mission, can I control the camera at all? Not pan and tilt, but actually rotating the quad from 0 - 360 degrees? (Kind of like when your flying it in course lock)

    Any other cool option and features when using waypoints?
    Thanks,
    Larry

    According to other folks previously, you can only pause the mission to get viewpoint control. It's definitely a missed opportunity, since the bird already knows how to course lock. I'd be quite shocked if they don't add it at some point - either within the mini-GS (preferred), or through official support of the full-fledged Ground Station system (not to give them any ideas)

    Thanks!
    How do you pause the mission? Is it even in the manual?

    Same place you start the mission. The triangle button you pushed turns in the pause button.

    Page 41 (make sure your manual is Ver 1.4) see the pause button on the RHS border.
