Yesterday I attempted my first orbit, matter of fact first time using the app. Thought I had everything set up properly. Started the sequence, countdown and the quad just sat there and didn't move. What did I not do properly?

There are a lot of things that could have gone wrong.  My first thought is are you on the current firmware?  Did you pick the right device?

I figured it out. Yesterday I didn't flip the switch to the F mode on the receiver. Dope slap.

Now I just need to figure out how to set the POI to not be me.

I didn't realize until I reviewed video from today's testing that the app controls the camera on and off as well as the gimbal.

I await the all inclusive walk through tutorial video of each mode. Even

The other thing: I would have paid more up front for an all inclusive app instead of the ala carte of the in app purchases.

OK I watched the 6 minute video on youtube regarding orbit. The one thing I am not clear about it is how to set the POI. The video did not explain it. It just mentioned having made a mistake in having it set to the RC and then correcting it by moving the RC to the point that was intended.

Do I have to fly to the POI and then somehow set it. Do I launch from the POI if i preprogram the flight?

I am not usually a dunce but I am just not getting this set up. I usually look for buttons as a visual que, but here it is just colored lines of text that may or may not be active.

Thanks for any help.

We are coming out with an Orbit tutorial video soon on our youtube channel, but until then you can either drag the Orbit pin on the map, or tap the Set with Aircraft Position button to set the center point.
