There appears to be confusion because the statement by Litchi is ambiguous:
- [DJI GO/older drone models only] added new setting ‘Enable DJI’s Gimbal Interpolation in Waypoint mode’ to allow gimbal pitch movements out of signal range
- [DJI GO/older drone models only] when supported by the drone’s firmware, custom waypoint speeds will now work even out of signal range
What does Litchi mean by “DJI GO/older drone models only”? The most strict interpretation of this statement would imply that the update only affects “DJI GO” drones (Phantom 3, etal.) and not “DJI GO4” drones (Mavic, Mavic 2, etal.).
A more lenient interpretation would imply that Litchi’s use of “DJI GO” includes both “DJI GO” and “DJI GO4” drones. This is what I believe Litchi means but I don’t really know.
I use the IOS version of Litchi so I cannot see this update.
A point of clarification: All gimbal pitch movements are interpolated from one waypoint to the next whether “Gimbal Pitch” is set to “Interpolate” or “Focus POI”. Those are simply two different methods for setting the gimbal pitch angle at each waypoint. Either way, the gimbal pitch angle should smoothly transition (interpolate) from the angle defined at one waypoint to the angle defined at the following waypoint.
It seems this should be easy to test for someone with “an older drone” and Android. I use IOS and I never design missions where I would loose signal so I am not volunteering to test this.
