Can you use virtual stick during an execution of waypointV2Mission period?

    I had the same question, but under a very specific case:

    -> if you have a WaypointV2Mission with speed set to zero (CablelCam -style), then you need to use the sticks to create any movement at all, as the speed is dictated by stick movement;

    -> In that particular scenario, using Virtual Sticks makes much more sense -  only to control the speed, based on some decision made by software.

    For that case, is it okay to use Virtual Sticks during execution of a waypointV2Mission ?

    No, actually waypointV2Mission will give the control authority to the flight controller, but enable virtual stick will take over the control authority. We strongly not recommand you using virtual stick during a waypointV2Mission which may cause control authority ambiguous. If you set WaypointV2Mission spped to zero, I would suggest you use the remote controller's stick to control the camera rather than virtual stick.

    Thank you for the response.

    May I request this as a new feature, for some future SDK?

    Feature would be:  Allow software to control the speed during a zero-speed WaypointV2Mission.

    --> Possible implementation would be additional APIs in the WaypointV2Mission objects, so that you don't need to switch control authority. Only need one input data: the new speed setting (setting it to zero would make the drone stop).
