    Hi,

    I just started using the Auto Flight Logic app and have a question regardiing the Target or even Zip-Line mode. Does it constantly require GPS signal? I am using inspire 1 with iphone 5S. I want to be able to fly from an open space through a short hallway which could make my inspire lose signal.

    My plan is to fly to end of hallway and set that as a marker and then fly back to where I am (the starting point) and then initilize the autopilot/

    I would not recommend that.
    GPS is needed for waypoints and autonomous flight, always. How would it be able to determine the heading for the next waypoint and it's own relative position otherwise? In that hallway or tunnel I suspect it probably start hovering or crash in a wall.

    Well i would assume the end points are exposed and would have a GPS signal already

    No - waypoint flying will rely on GPS timing data in a continuous update stream. You can't have it get GPS lock at one point and expect it to fly to another GPS marked location with no or little data in between.
