Phantom 3 Follow Me Flight Test

DJI recently posted an update for the Phantom 3 that enables new advanced flight modes. I decided to take my Phantom out for a spin and try out the Follow Me flight mode by riding shotgun in my brother’s car. It worked pretty well with only two negatives:

  1. The Phantom does not fly at maximum speed but rather the most efficient speed (around 22mph) which makes it difficult to keep up with a car.
    1. If you stop moving the Phantom acts a little weird and swings the camera around pretty harshly. Hopefully this will be fixed in a software update.
