Can it complete a waypoints mission hands off from engine off? And full return to home hands off?

+Nigel Powell Waypoint missions are actually all firmware.  The app creates the waypoints with a few settings but once uploaded to the Phantom and the phantom is told to GO there is no more app interaction unless you do something.  The mission will fly from the 1st waypoint to the last and then hover; same as the Vision.  At that point you can flip S1, take control and land or touch RTH and the app will send a command to the Phantom to return to home point and land.

If I'm not understanding the question please let me know.  You can also join the Google Group for the app and ask questions there!
