I am strugling with using tracking and paralell follow me while I am skiing down the mountain. The drone follow if I am going slow. If I ski in 20-30 km/t the drorne loose me in seconds. It can sometimes show the green box fixed on me, but it has stoped after few meters.

I need the drone to follow the mobil signal and stay 5-10-20 meter behind and decend. Is this possible, or do I have to wait for an update?

Regards
Jens

Hi Jen, the miximum following speed in parallel mode is T: 12m/s  N: 12m/s  S:19m/s. When following people, the relative height to the target must be within 10 meters, and the horizontal distance must be within 15 meters. We do not recommend to track when skiing since the vision system would be affected due to the pure white of the snow.

Hi MIndy, I have tried within the limits you have described here. I think following one skier in white snow should be very easy because it is not much else in the way. The contrast between skier an snow is huge. But can't they program it to follow a smartphone, or the controller?

Hi Jens, for fly safety consideratoions, it is not recommended to track a moving subject on a snowy surface. You may refer to the notices on the user manual:
