These are the things that keep me up at night. lol
Tried searching this forum, couldn't find an answer.
I have a bunch of missions now, all withing miles of each other. So was thinking, if I get confused (yea right), and load a mission that is nearby by mistake (yea right), will the Litchi Program stop me from my stupidity? Or will my Aircraft fly off, heading for the Way Point, 20 miles away?

Litchi will only start a mission if the first waypoint is within a set distance, not sure what that is though, but yes I did once try it to see what happened

Just be prepared to cancel mission if it starts heading wrong direction, take over manual control.

So True, so true.... "Luke.... FEEL the pause Button". lol
Latley when I'm running a program, I have my controller finger resting on the Pause Button with my mind on the screen Icon Pause button. Only just learned that one recently. Not sure which I prefer. With my controller finger snapping pictures so much, the Screen Pause Mission Icon, the icons do get busy at times... but screen is probably the best first bet in regaining control. grin. Both work
