I find it strange / very frustrating (having come from the original MA & DJI Go) that there is no Tap Fly or Course Lock for the MA2.

No course lock on any dji drone since Mavic Pro1 and P4pro . So I don’t think we will see that, tapfly was a good tool with Mavic Air, but I like that they gave us hyperlapse and focus track , maybe we might see some old features return but I’m not so sure, waypoints would take care of both course lock and tapfly it would also be very useful for lots of other stuff.
Sometimes we see people with glasses half empty while others are half full .

I love Tap to fly feature... I want it back!
Since the app is changed to DJI FLY, we lost so many things compared to old MA 1.

Sorry, first time drone owner... what are the Tap Fly & Course Lock features?
Nevermind, found:

Course Lock would be useful as a separate mode, not just as a sub-mode of Hyperlapse

I know that (it's in the manual), but we want Tap Fly back (which was the Mavic Air equivalent of Course Lock) for use in the normal mode of flying. In fact, as Course Lock is available in Hyperlapse, surely it can't be too difficult to add this option to normal flight?

I miss Course Lock too. Is a great feature to fly sideways for a long distance.

Even without side obstacle avoidance sensors?

1080p is useless, give us 4k at least.

If you choose to save the raw files from a "1080p" Hyperlapse, they are indeed 4k, that is, you can make your own 4k Hyperlapse from the raws.

DJI Phantom 3 has course lock as well......no obstacle avoidance system either and it works great.

This is the only available format for the Hyperlapse. However, you can use the raw file to edit using a 3rd party software to have a 4k Hyperlapse. Thank you for your support!

If the drone can make 8k hyperlapse there's no reason it can't do 4k hyperlapse.
It will be much more convenient to take the 4k hyperlapse video from the drone rather than using 3rd party software to convert raw photos to video.

It's similar to to DJI decides to cut the video mode and tell us to make video from photos, I don't really get it :/

What’s the deal, there was never course lock on Mavic Air and this is the second time you posted this ridiculous thread, I suppose your intention was to try to fool others. It seems you’ll never learn.

Now you’re just fishing for an argument! I referenced Course Lock because it’s available when doing Hyperlapse, as you know.

Very unlikely but you can pan the gimbal during flight which gives the same style footage of CL.

What we all want is Tap fly or similar in Video mode like we had on the original Mavic Air. It’s a great function that I miss almost every time I launch my MA2.
