I am unable to find any information anywhere on the full list of flight modes and if it will support waypoints. Anyone have any info on this?

For the Mavic or Spark? You have a Spark only icon on the Mavic thread... All the information on all of the intelligent flight modes are in the manuals for both drones.

No worries - and you got me there LOL Best to wait for the manual on that to be released if it isn't already. I'm not even sure it will have waypoints...

Really Elektra? It's definitely listed as a feature for the Mavic Air under Intelligent Flight Modes. Is this incorrect? If so that's a real bummer and this really needs corrected on the website. I'll feel cheated if this is true as it's one of the features I was really excited for when I made my purchase.

This is odd... when I first started this thread, I followed the link in one of the above posts for drone comparison and it DID in fact say it had waypoints. Now, it no longer has waypoints listed. Am I seeing this correctly? can anyone verify?

Mistakes are made I guess - in the same way it doesn't state the correct max flight distance of the Mavic Pro Platinum  - which is 15KM and not 13KM - how can the same drone with an added 3 minutes of flight time due to ESC upgrades have the same max flight distance? LOL

Feature of waypoints on Mavic air have been advertised on the website.

I archived it here for reference and proof (french page). It was on the english page too until this morning but strangely it did disappeared now...

This is a real disappointment... I just got approval to purchase the Mavic Air for my work. Waypoints was required for it to do the job I needed it for. Looks like I will have to hold off.

I was debating on whether to buy the Mavic Pro or the Mavic Air.  One of the deciding factors for choosing the Mavic Air was that it was advertised to support Waypoints and yet is smaller and more portable.  I absolutely need this feature for my Mavic Air.  Without a manual yet, I wasn't sure if it was supported, but I guess since the comparison website has been updated, it does not appear to be supported.  PLEASE add this feature in the next update!  You advertised it, mistake or not.  Please stand by your mistakes and fix this soon.

Wow... I'm in the same boat.

I can't imagine why this and some of the other features (follow me) have been left of this drone that obviously has a more capable processor than previous models.

They better get these features on this bird quick.
I'm really disappointed in all of the reviews I've seen because none of them have highlighted all of the missing features.

On DJI's German website (as of Feb 1, 2018) it's stated that Mavic Air supports waypoints:

I do not know if I will buy the mavic air, no waypoint of dynamic homepoint.
These functions are basic functions, all "flying people "know it.
DJI should quickly clarify the future of mavic air functions.
I'm waiting to see before buying

I don't think any of us understand this decision by Dji.

Yea, because it was just recently removed.....

Is DJI really so committed to not admitting they made a mistake by incorrectly advertising the features of one of its products that they are instead resorting to removing the incorrectly advertised feature and then telling the consumers that we must all be crazy and just imagined it was there? This a really disappointing response....

Sorry for the trouble it brings. We refresh the link and modify it when we find the mistake. Thanks for the attention. And I will forward this requirement to our engineer.

Not having waypoints really does take a lot of the capability of this drone away.  Very disappointed.  It was one of the reasons I ordered.

If the aircraft can't handle waypoints litchi cannot make it so.
Spark works with litchi but without waypoint mode.
Also litchi does not support mavic air (not yet).

dji stated in another thread that 3rd party apps will support waypoints and litchi confirmed this, once the sdk is released.

NO WAYPOINTS!... well, I will not be adding this model to my collection.  That just makes the Air a fancy Spark.  I will stick to my Mavic Pro and Platinum

You can generally set what happens at each waypoint.  Most of mine dont stop and just continue from point to point.
