I do not particuly like to enter FPV mode when filming and some of my filming require Follow Mode (gimble in stable position) but with high velocity.

The Spark enters automatically into FPV mode (gimbal follows aircraft movement) when in Sport Mode.

I was wondering if by software or other means I would be able to have Follow Mode even in Sport Mode. Otherwise for this type of filming I will continue using the Mavic.

Thanks for your comments.

There is no FPV/follow toggle in the app on the Spark <IN SPORT MODE>. The closest you can get is to fly in p-mode with follow turned on and the obstacle avoidance turned off - this will keep the horizon level whilst increasing your air speed from around 6 to 13MPH. The only other way would be to hack the drone in someway but that is not someone I do or recommend.

That is incorrect. On the Spark, in the gimbal settings on the DJI Go 4 app you can choose FPV or Follow...

In Sport mode???

Thank you guys. I was under the hope that with the latest firmware/software updates this would be possible. But it seems that not yet maybe by hardware (gimbal) limitations.
