"the total distance of waypoints is too large"

Dear zane, today I did a big mission that include 400ha, so I divided in 2 mission. So, 1 Mission had: 251ha, 120mt heigh,120km, 9m/s, 248min, 12 bat, 5.175img, 20700points, 42GB (The card is a Samsung U3 from 64GB, conectionless, shutter priority and 4.1.6 build map pilot version.   I was moving to try to stay in the middle of the mission, but the forest was too hard, so the unic possibility was flying until some place, some far from the mission area.  The drone had to flight 1.200mt just to return a new flight (at blue point).   After I changed the batteries, and just after charging the new mission, appear the error message about "the total distance of waypoints is too large" the last post I saw it was 2016, but do you have news about what are happening? To resolve in the field, I had to make a new mission in order to continous the mission, then I flight 2 batteries more, but the message appeared again.

This sounds like a huge mission. It would help if you had some screenshots or something. The DJI SDK says that you can't have points that are further from each other than 2000 meters. In the case where this happens in a Map Pilot layout we usually break the long leg up into 1999 meter segments.

We haven't heard of this happening for a pretty long time since our workaround seems to work well. It is POSSIBLE that your were right at the edge of a 2000 meter segment and the GPS inaccuracy of the homepoint put it over the 2000 meter limit at the time of the layout. The fix here would be to move the aircraft towards the point where the flight path is being resumed.
