I’ll give it another shot and let you know some feedback.Really? There's a mission editor where you create missions, and a Mission Layer on the map where you run them. What do you find confusing? Because if there are issues with it, I know a guy...
One thing that is important is to know what mission features are available when connected, versus if the signal is temporarily lost.
The app from Hangar called Autopilot (for DJI) handles this by letting you select linked versus unlinked at the beginning of creating the mission. This is because only some features are compatible with the DJI mission SDK. Only the compatible features are then shown.
Because of Tower and Mission Planner, I am used to the idea of uploading a self contained mission—it makes sense and let’s you download and confirm what is in the Solo’s memory.
