SOLVED: How to start the flight?!

How do you actually start a flight? Everything is green in the drone connection status. I click close.

Then I'm back in the map again, but there is nothing resembling a "play" button. Toggle to camera. Nothing there either.

I do have my flight plan loaded...

I'm using Mavic Air, with an Asus phone (Android 9). Using DH Plus 1.10.6-pro downloaded yesterday (I want to use the terrain map capability, which seems to work up to the point of actually flying).

I tried to attach screenshots, but the forum file size limits are too low for an 804 KB file.

The question applies equally to DH Basic on that device.

I don't have another Android device handy right now, so I can't cross check to see whether executing the flight plan is more obvious on other devices...

I just see the blue "plus" button where I expect to see the play button. Please help!

Well I finally figured out how to get the red play button:- in the map view, to the right of the shaded area you want to fly (halfway up the screen), there is a little square box blue-ish in color, with a number in it (elevation). You have to click on that box!

Can I suggest this needs to be documented prominently, it is a significant and unnecessary hurdle for first time users.
