Sad indeed... on-board autonomous waypoints are a great feature, and for some applications critical. However, in the overall DJI customer base waypoints have little value.

So I wonder why DJI changed strategy after the M2 and decided to treat this feature like everyone would be willing to shell out for an M3E to continue using Litchi for their recreational productions.

Second mystery: Okay, so DJI seems to have reconsidered, probably in part due to their loyal, long-time customers' reaction. On-board waypoints brought back in the top-end of the 3 consumer lines, Mavic, Air, and Mini 4 Pro. So why not SDK support so apps like Litchi can be used? How does DJI benefit by forcing us to use DJI Fly?

Exactly. I so want, at least, the functionality of Litchi !
