In the top right settings cog of the app, there's an option called "Show Flight Route"
I've always had this enabled so I'm not totally sure if it needs to be enabled or not. I'd say the straight line will always be there and the above option will enable a track of exactly where you've flown.
Home point is set automatically and it'll be verbally said by the app on take off. You'll see a blue circle in the map. Always good to calibrate the compass when flying in a new area and cache the maps then kill the cellular signal on the screening device or kill wifi once cached.
It's a good idea to have a pre flight check list and an after flight check list.
No but it'll need an internet connection for map caching. You can always cache maps at home if you're not wanting to fiddle around whilst in the feild. But remember to kill wifi or cellular once ready to start up.
Ok just so I indedst correctly. I have a wifi IPad so no internet outside, so will I be able to fly without internet, will the maps be showing me the drone and the flight line? The only way I can get internet outside is to connect to my cell via Bluetooth
What does it mean map cashing?
Just did my 1st flight... Which screen shows my track/white line so i know how to get home? I click on the camera icon, that shows me what camera sees, then if i switch to the square at the bottom left, that just shows map
