How to create a Flight Plan with the DJI VISION APP
The DJI VISION APP integrates the Ground Station function which enables you to create your missions using WAYPOINTS, setting the model altitude and speed. Once you’ve created your Flight Plan all you have to do is click on GO and your DRONE will perform the mission completely independently. You’ll be able to abort the mission at any time and get the Drone to fly back to take-off position by simply clicking on Go Home (RTH – Return To Home).

2. Setting the WAYPOINTS
Disconnect the Internet and connect the DJI APP VISION to you UAV. Make sure that the S1 switch is in posizione 1 (upward) and that on the top left part of the Ground Station screen you can see the MODE GPS logo.
Wait for the DRONE to enter Ready to Fly mode (green flashing Led) before you start operating on Ground Station. Click on the map to position the WAYPOINTS. You can insert up to 16 waypoints, including the Home Point.
IMPORTANT: The WAYPOINTs can’t be positioned over 500 meters away from Home point or inside areas identified as No WAYPOINT Area.
A red circle on the map, as shown in the picture below, identifies an area where flying is restricted, that is an area where inserting waypoints in not possible.
IMPORTANT: To achieve the best performance in video transmission quality, youe device must fly/operate within a 500 meters radius from Home Point.
Click on WAYPOINT to open the WAYPOINT properties window. Roll the small white circle to adjust the altitude. The default altitude is 20 m but it can be adjusted up to 200 m.
Click on OK to save the WAYPOINT data. To delete a WAYPOINT press the trash icon.
3. Missione preview
Once all the WAYPOINTS have been set, click on DONE to obtain the Mission preview. A screen like the one below will appear.
In the Flight Plan Preview you will be able to see the complete list of WAYPOINTS and altitudes. The UAV will follow the WAYPOINTS set. <If there is a difference in altitute among the WAYPOINTS the Drone will follow a straight line joining the points by performing a climb or a descent.
When you are ready click on GO to start your mission. If the UAV is on the ground it will automatically take off fling to 5 m and fly towards the first WAYPOINT. If it is alraedy flying it will automatically fly to the first WAYPOINT just the same way.

Your Drone will reach all the WAYPOINTS according to the sequence. Duing the mission you can go back to the Camera VISION APP and take photos or shoot videos. Click on PAUSE to stop the aircraft and lock it into Hovering (it will float in the air). Click on PLAY to resume the mission.
If you want to regain control of your DRONE, switch to S1 on the radio controller from position 1 to position 2. Switch to positione 3 to completely exit the mission.
Once your UAV has flown to all the WAYPOINTS, it will fly Home hovering. At this point you can take control and land it.
