I recently purchased an Air 3 drone and putting it through its paces. This is my first DJI drone. Far better quality then my two previous drones. I still need to learn quit a bit considering all the new features not available in my other two drones. One of my old drones has a "follow-me" feature which i concluded after watching and reading many reviews of the Air 3 is that follow-me feature is the same as Active Track. I must say I am very disappointed in what the Air 3 active track will follow. My budget friendly drone would follow anything that i got it locked on to. I was hoping for the same with the Air 3. My plans would be to use the Air 3 Active Track footage for my farm business. Any suggestions to overcome how i can get Active Track to lock on and follow farm equipment such as tractors, combines, side-by-side vehicles.

Welcome! With DJI Active Track you are pretty much limited to cars, motorcycles, bicycles and boats. All signs point to this being a security precaution.

Hi, BusterBrown. Thank you for reaching out and congrats on your new drone! DJI Air 3 has ActiveTrack 5.0 which can only be used for tracking people, vehicles, and boats. ActiveTrack 5.0 tracks subjects whether the aircraft is moving forward, backward, left, or right. Embedded with the newest subject recognition technology, ActiveTrack 5.0 uses multiple vision sensors simultaneously to recognize a subject, differentiate it from other objects, and lock the subject in the frame. Consumer Drone is able to track in all directions and adjust tracking angles smoothly for more natural results.

It seems that DJI have intentionally crippled ActiveTrack. I don't know if that has anything to do with the use of their products in armed conflicts, but the hardware should certainly be capable of better tracking than lesser drones.

Hi, Geo_Drone. Currently, the main identifying objects of ActiveTrack are vehicles. The identifying effects are not ideal when the identifying object is a two-wheeler, tricycle, or other unusual vehicle type. We will work to improve product performance and to enrich the identifying vehicle types in subsequent product function updates. Thank you for your kind understanding.

Hello! I was going to make a video of walking with the dog. Unfortunately, when I select myself and my dog ​​is in the frame, Active Track does not accept the selection. When the dog is out of the frame and comes to me during a walk, Active Track stops working. Is it possible to update Active Track so that Human + Dog can be tracked together?

I would love it if we could actually track objects. It's just a software thing and that should be easy enough to shut off the vehicle, boat, person thing and make it track anything. I can do it with my Platinum and I love that drone for that reason.

Please pass this is along and IMO that would make the air 3 100% perfect.

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. If you are referring to the DJI Fly, Yes, the aircraft must be connected to the remote controller with the DJI Fly app running to perform the ActiveTrack feature. Hope this helps.

Hello.
I am also jumping in on this question about tracking farming machinery.
I was really disappointed when this level of drone (Air3) wouldn't follow my red tractor.
Dear DJI support team - is it really so difficult to update Active Track script with farming machinery??? There will be plenty of farmers who will say thank you! I have read millions of topics where people are disaponted about new active track.

I have noticed that the active track feature on the Air 3 works much worse than on my trusty old Air 2. I'm not sure why, maybe this is related to my settings or the fact I'm in the EU so C Mark applies, but still, disappointing to say the least...

active track

When I select active track it does not give me the circle with the option to select back, front, etc.  Do I need to be video mode for this to work?
The opitons I get are trace, auto and parallel.

Hi there. Are you referring to the Trace Wheel?

It's available when selecting the Trace mode.

Have a nice day.
