    How Curved Litchi Missions and DJI Fly Waypoint Missions Differ

    Most people who have used both Litchi and DJI Fly waypoint missions know that the flight paths differ. If the same set of waypoints are used in both applications, in DJI Fly, the flight path goes through the waypoints while in Litchi, they do not. Upon initial inspection, it appears that...

    Another use for an SRT file

    As many of you probably know, if you enable “Video Captions” in the app, a “.SRT” file is generated along with the video file when capturing a movie. For example, with video captions enabled, you would see a pair of files on your SD card named something like this: DJI_0001.MP4 DJI_0001.SRT...

    Creating an Elliptical Waypoint Mission for Litchi

    I have created another utility for Litchi waypoint missions. This utility is used to create a mission in the shape of an ellipse. An ellipse may be defined by two foci and an eccentricity value. Google Earth Pro is used to provide the foci coordinates. Once converted to a Litchi waypoint...

    Backup / Import Waypoints on Air 3

    Has anyone had success importing a waypoint mission into the Air 3 from a KMZ file? I'm attempting to create a workflow that leverages the Litchi Mission Hub and Litchi Utilities similar to the Mavic 3 converter but I have been unable to locate the Waypoint file folder.

    Litchi Waypoint Mission to Mavic 3 Waypoint Mission converter

    I have completed my “Litchi Waypoint Mission to Mavic 3 Waypoint Mission converter. With this web application, one can design a waypoint mission from the comfort of your office on a large monitor using Litchi’s Mission Hub then convert that mission to one that can be flown with a Mavic 3...

    Mavic 3 Waypoints to Litchi Converter

    I have created a web application that will convert a Mavic 3 waypoint kmz file into a Litchi csv waypoint file. This application was written based on examining only a single Mavic 3 waypoint file. As a result, it is almost a certainty that there are Mavic 3 waypoint parameters that I have not...

    Injecting a modified version of a precedent flight

    Hi! I'm trying to find a way to use the data provided by the flight record (if needed) of the dji mini 2 to re-fly a flight I already did. But, I would like to modify the flight (add or remove "waypoints", add or remove an action like taking a picture...), then inject it somehow into the drone...

    Waypoints over water and Litchi

    I know in Litchi you can follow terrain by setting height above GROUND in Waypoints but how does a Waypoint behave above water: ie: Lakes, sea, and Crystal clear swimming pools? TIA, John

    Sidewards facing Hyperlapse possible?

    Hey folks, I am wondering if there is a way to achieve a Hyperlapse where the MA2 is facing 90 degrees to the travel direction whilst in a straight line. I do not want the bird to be locked on to a target, I want it to for example face South the whole travel of it moving East to West. Is this...

    Interpolate gimbal doesn't work on Mavic 2 pro (Litchi)

    Hey guys, I have this issue that doesn't allow me to do the job. I 'm running a Litchi waypoint mission with gimbal pitch set to "Interpolate" on all waypoints but the gimbal won't move smoothly. It will change the angle but just before each waypoint (suddenly) and not continuously while flying...

    Spiral Maker for Litchi Waypoint Missions

    Attention Litchi and Google Earth Pro users: A type of mission that I like to fly when capturing video is a "spiral reveal". This is where the drone revolves around a point of interest (POI) while gaining in altitude. Geometrically, this is probably better described as a "coil" or "helix". Even...

    Is it safe to use Waypoint 2.0 when you loose signal with your Mavic 2?

    Hi, I want to use Waypoints to set a path where I might lose signal of the drone. I set it to return home once all waypoints are completed. Is there a danger my drone will get lost? Thanks.

    Repeatability of Litchi Waypoint Missions

    On my way to work one day I noticed a water tower being built alongside the highway. Since the construction site was not too far from where I live I thought it would be interesting to design a drone mission using Litchi and fly that same mission every day or so as the water tower was being...

    Mavic 2.0 Pro - Waypoints 2.0 - Create these in flight?

    Can anyone confirm whether it's possible to create a waypoint flight plan/route during a flight - by flying to each point, hovering in space at the desired point and altitude, and creating each waypoint, along with recording the Gimbal angle, drone 'direction' [its facing direction]; before...
