DJI has released an exciting new firmware update for its top-of-the-line Mavic 3 consumer drone series, bringing native Waypoint Flight support to Mavic 3 Classic, Mavic 3, and Mavic 3 Cine drones.

Waypoints is an automated flight mode that enables a drone to follow a specified flight path over and over again. You can define Points of Interest (POI) along this flight route, which tells the drone where it needs to focus while capturing images.

Parameters such as camera action, altitude, speed, heading, gimbal tilt, zoom, and hovering time can all be defined for individual waypoints — which makes this intelligent flight feature incredibly useful for jobs such as filming real estate, mapping, or assessing the changes in an area over time.
