Question about mission profiles


I have a question regarding waypoint missions.

I have several of them from my previous drone (a Mavic Pro) that I will now be flying with my recently acquired Air 2S.

The height in each point in a mission is referenced to the starting point, correct?

What I mean is, is it irrelevant where and at what height I launch the drone, since it will be flying to the starting point of the specific mission to be flown, adjust the initial height and then fly the mission reference to that initial height?

Thank you for nay input.


The height specified at each waypoint is in reference to the Take-Off location.

No. This has tripped up people in the past. The Take-Off location (height) is the reference point. From take-off, the drone uses barometric pressure to estimate its height.
