Is it possible to save a waypoint mission with only 1 existing waypoint?
I‘m asking because my parent are building a new house and I want to take a photo on the same position with the same camera angle each day.
After finishing of the house I want to do a time lapse video consisting of all those photos.
So there is no need of a second waypoint. I just want to save position and camera angle.
I have to assume that you are asking this question because you have already tried and it doesn’t appear to work. No, you cannot save a waypoint mission with only one waypoint.
What I would suggest is to create a 2-waypoint mission where the first waypoint is near your take-off position (it doesn’t really matter where). Then, position your second waypoint at the location from which you wish to take your photo. Define your camera actions (wait 1 second, take photo) at that second waypoint.
Be sure to select “Straight Lines” as your “Path Mode” in settings, otherwise, your camera actions will be ignored.
One way to create this mission is by flying it manually, so you are able to precisely frame the photo to be taken.
Read this topic on how to create a waypoint mission whilst flying:
Because all waypoint altitudes are relative to the take-off point, it is important you choose a take-off point that is accessible during the whole shooting period, or at least a take-off point with the same altitude.
A flight plan with a dozen waypoints takes literally a few moments to define with Litchi Mission Hub, and by allowing the drone to circle the house at various heights to capture multiple perspectives, any number of superb still photographs could be recorded.
The wording of your initial post’s title got me wondering about another question. If I only place one single footfall, could I be said to have walked? Just kidding he he.
