Orbit setup from Mission Hub

Newbie…I can easily setup an Orbit from my Litchi app either on my android phone or my ipad. I was on my laptop trying to preplan a mission for an upcoming job and can’t see the same functions as the app? What gives? Why not?

PLEASE PLEASE make this happen asap!!

I would also like to do an orbit with pictures not video. Basiclly the setup would be like

  1. width of the circle.
  2. number of waypoints

So basically I am something that would let me setup a cardnal points mission. I want 8 pictures of a building a N, NW, W, SW etc… This is a VERY common mission for inspections and so far I have found no application that will do this easly.

Create such a mission in litchi. What’s stopping you?

Okay, How would you do it?

Show on the map where you want to take a photo.

You are missing the point. I can draw a way point mission with 8 points too. What I would like is an orbit mission where I can define all that stuff easier, and having that option in Mission hub would be nice.

If your problem is not clear, how to solve it. An orbit is a rotation around a single object. An orbit is always moving at a speed

I know of no “easy” way to do that. I have created software that works with Litchi to create spiral missions using Google Earth. I think it is easy but it is not made to do exactly what you are asking.
