  • I believe you are asking if you can automate a flight; and more specifically, to pre-program the flight based upon prior maneuvers.

    Right now, there is no vendor app for this, and I am unaware of any third party apps available at the app store-- but more are being added all the time.

    However, there are many groups experimenting with various user mods such as one that can follow a red rubber ball and others which send flight commands from a script (probably what you are looking to do).

    These user-mods require interfacing with various external hardware and software sources, as well as probably requiring a (reversible) firmware modification on the Drone itself.

    The upcoming "Director's Mode" software by Parrot may provide exactly the function you seek, but as of my writing, is not currently available.
