Action Priority

HI everyone…just getting used to Litchi.

Just wondered what the priority of actions is on a waypoints mission.

Flying two parallel flight lines. If I set ‘Mission Settings’ to Heading - Turn to Next Waypoint, does the drone:
Take a picture at the end of flight line one (via the waypoint menu)
Turn towards the waypoint at the start of flight line 2 and travel forwards
Turn again to orientate itself along flight line 2
Take a picture (from the waypoint menu).

or does it:
Take a picture at the end of flight line one (via the waypoint menu)
Turn towards the waypoint at the start of flight line 2 and travel forwards
Take a picture (from the waypoint menu).
Turn again to orientate itself along flight line 2

So, do Mission Settings trump Waypoint Settings?

In a Straight Line mission with Heading set to ‘Auto(TNW)’ the drone will fly to a waypoint, stops, executes programmed actions, then heads (turns) to the direction of the next waypoint and starts flying again.

In a Curved Turns Mission with Heading set to ‘Auto(TNW)’, actions will be ignored and the drone will gradually turn (Yaw) while flying between 2 waypoints

OK, understood. Thanks very much

So at the end of the first line I should take a picture, move to the waypoint at the start of the next flightline (Camera now not in the correct orientation), rotate through 90 degree and take picture (via waypoint menu), then fly to next waypoint (camera now correctly orientated)

If you want a picture taken at a waypoint in a specifiek direction, you use the action called ‘Rotate Aircraft’ before the action ‘Take Photo’.
