DJI Waypoints

When programming a waypoint mission does waypoints 2.0 automatically adjust for terrain or do I have to compensate manually . The reason I ask is when using mission planner with a pixhawk, mission planner will automatically compensate.

Amended your thread title to avoid any confusion with a Litchi Waypoints Mission.

Thanks, will the question not apply to both?

Probably not the answer you’re looking for, but ditch GO4 waypoints and invest in Litchi, it really is the best way point planner out there

I’ve not used Waypoints - but in Litchi you have the option to create missions relative to the ground, relative to take-off, realtive to the home, or relative to mission initiation height it already in the air.

Also - with Litchi - you have the option of creating a mission whilst at home, in the warm, sat at the computer with a nice big screen … and without using your drone and RC batteries. :wink:

Thanks that’s sort of the answer I was looking for.

In Litchi you can also do what I believe the DJI Waypoints enables you to do … fly a route and create waypoints on the go, etc. … should you want to.

It’s the ability to sit at home and plan a mission carefully that I like about Litchi (particularly in Dec/Jan/Feb!), and take your time to ensure it’s correct before risking your drone, etc.

There’s other free software available (Virtual Litchi Mission - PC Only, or an almost identical Chrome Plugin) that enables you to “fly your mission” in Google Earth (An example), to check camera angles, etc.

As I say, I’ve not used Waypoints, Litchi has been around a lot longer and does all I need - and seems to get the vote by those that have tried both.
