Okay, I searched the forum for this question first but didn’t find it so my apologies if this is a simple, beginner question. I want to be able to control where the first start point is and can’t figure it out. If I’m creating the mission in the field, it starts close to where I’m standing which is what I want. If I create it on the computer ahead of time though, it picks based on something else. I understand that DD won’t know where I’m going to be standing so it has to pick something but like this last one I did, the starting point was 2000’ away from me which wasted 3 minutes of the battery just flying there, which really matters on a large map. I can’t figure out how to move it to the spot I want it to start once I get there (or even from the computer ahead of time).
I have to add for the DD staff, the “moving the start point” slider is misleading as it skips all the points that you select past. It wasn’t obvious to me initially that was what was happening until the drone came home without completing the rest of the map. I think a different labeling method would be helpful as I messed up a couple of maps until I figured out what was going in. That slider looks like it is exactly what I was looking for until you don’t get all the mission flown.
