I use my mavic air to look for fish when Im out on my boat. Cheaper then gas. I want a programmed flight pattern that after launch climbs to 50 ft as it flies out to 1/2 mi. then circles the boat looking out and down. It would be great if it was like boomerang. I stop the boat durning the operation. Any thoughts

use the POI function, climb to 50ft then set the diameter and run a POI round your boat, you can then change the height as you want

You can use Litchi’s orbit. it allows to set camera angle and drone can face outwards of circle. Just read the modes documentation and google....

Thanks, Looking at it now. Does it just run the camera? You run it concurrent with flight app?
