    Was just wondering if there was a way to use UTM coordinates with the PS3 or any of the P series instead of Lat/Lon. Do any other apps offer that option.

    It's not possible in DJI GO. I've never seen a 3rd party app that offers this feature.

    I don't know exactly what you are trying to do.

    I think there is a way but it takes the Litchi app. You could change the settings in Google Earth to UTMs, import your coordinates and then export/import to Litchi and their Mission Hub. And then fly whatever you're trying to fly.

    Here's a great video on how to set the flight up in Google Earth and using Litchi. Now.... what you are trying to do, as stated, I'm not sure but perhaps this will help.



    I've used that methodology and it works well no matter what coordinate system you are using.
