How do you control the drone and the camera?

The DJI Mavic has "active track" and "follow me" features. I was using "active track" (AT) on the video. AT uses the drones 3D camera to "lock" on an image and follow it. You can add other sub features like circle so the drone circles around the target while locked on.

"Follow Me" uses the phone/notebook (tethered to the controller) GPS to follow. I've read "Follow Me" will follow, even when line of sight is lost, such as driving under a canopy of trees, although it isn't as accurate on centering the subject in the frame.

I was going to try it last night but couldn't find the icon to start it. Much to learn....

No Mr. Thrifty a helium balloon with a brownie camera attached to the string will not work! :-):-)

It is a trade-off, enjoyment vs keeping things perfect. I think you made the right choice. Tuco would have done the same.
Thanks for letting us in on the fun.

Very nice, Rob. A couple of questions: What happens when you're on the "follow me" feature, and you come to a bridge that's over the road you're on? In this video, the elec. wires & poles are on the other side of the road from the drone. What happens if the wires and poles cross over to the side of the road that the drone is on? Just wondering...

Keith

Only problem with the Brownie movie camera is that you'd be forever stopping to reel in the helium balloon so you could wind up the drive.
