Feature Request: Prevent Copter execute OLD Mission

Last weekend, I used Tower App to plan a mission, but forgot to upload it to the Copter. When the ‘auto’ mode started, the Copter flied toward the old mission way points (I uploaded it one day ago), which is 10 miles away.

Sooner after ‘auto’ mode started, the Copter hit a tree and crashed.

I’d suggest add below features:

  1. Add a switch that if true then forgot old mission after reboot.
  2. Or reject entering Auto mode, if the first waypoint (that has lon/lat) is far from home. (need add a parameter)

Dongfang_a, best way to ask for a new feature is to open a feature request on github:

issue #5743 raised.
