"Chimney" function

To the developers of the Litchi program.

Firstly Let me. Complement you on a excellent program, I really enjoy flying Litchi.

From the heading you can deduct that I have a suggestion to please add to Litchi Waypoint, I call it “chimney” . If you have to descend down between for instance dense trees (or a real chimney) to take a beter photo during a waypoint program, you can not simply go down or continue to the nest point as you might crash into trees. There for I suggest to please add to the list of “actions” a “chimney” function to be able to adjust the UAV’s height before descending or continuing to the next waypoint.

Who is stopping you from descending to any height and then specifying new mission points

You can stack a series of waypoints, each with exactly the same position co-ordinates,
one above the other at 1 or 2 metre increments in height.
Up or down.
Each waypoint can be at a slightly different heading for the camera view.
Speed between waypoints at 1 Km / hour.

The drone will fly in a vertical column and you can look around the full 360 degrees.

Thanks Archer, didn’t think that was possible. Regards

Next question.
Is it possible to insert a waypoint before the first waypoint in a series?

No, but you can insert a new waypoint from waypoint 1,
and then you can move the original waypoint 1 to a new position.
