I got into waypoints today and they are brilliant. One thing that crossed my mind though. let's say you created a waypoint path and saved it to your list and then moved 5 miles to another location and created another one. Then whilst you were at the second location you accidently loaded the 1st location waypoints and initiated it. Would your drone fly off towards the 1st location?

thats an interesting question ,my take on it would be, (a) it would fly the waypoint mission at the new location,or (b) it would say unable to fly at this location,i dont think it would try to return to the first location
the best person to answer that question would be @sar104 he will have a technical answer as to what would happen

I raised the question with DJI support and they tried to get an answer from the developers. But alas they couldn't so they will email me. (I won't hold my breath)...
