Newest version of iOS app (DJI Go) ignores "Recorded Heading". In older versions, it was called "Consistent With Record"
Before the latest iOS update for the DJI GO app (about a week ago), I was setting 2 waypoints (see video below) and  doing a slow sliding fly-by of the yellow building and keeping the camera zeroed in on the exact center of the building (a really nice smooth shot). The Phantom 4 kept the camera zeroed in automatically. Nice... Like riding in a car going down the street and you see a house you really like and keep turning your head to look at it. I was NOT using "Point-of-Interest" or "Course Lock".

Here's how I set the waypoints:

Just before setting Waypoint #1, I pointed the camera at the exact center of the building, then set Waypoint #1.
Just before setting Waypoint #2, I pointed the camera at the exact center of the building, then set Waypoint #2.

When I sent the Phantom 4 on this mission, it went directly to Waypoint #1, then turned towards the center of the building. Then, on its way to Waypoint #2 (and to my pleasant surprise), it automatically locked onto the center of the building and did a gentle pirouette towards the center of the building as it approached Waypoint #2 and kept the building exactly centered. I love it! Here's an example of an earlier version.



Now, with the latest iOS update, that feature is gone. It now simply flies from Waypoint #1 to Waypoint #2 - straight ahead -  and ignores where the camera was pointed at the time the waypoints were set on new missions. I DO NOT like that. Are there any workarounds to regain this lost feature....other than doing a manual turn while sliding right-to-left??

If I did happen to stumble upon settings that created this nice look, I sure would like to get the recipe and replicate it again. I've tried 4 times today with no luck.

Update: Here's an earlier version that shows the feature I'm talking about. They call it "Consistent With Record" (which is exactly what I'm doing but the app seems to ignore it). Fast-forward to 08:29  





Thanks in advance...

I have searched for 2 days now attempting to find someone who knows and understands what I'm trying to explain.

THIS IS IT -- In greater detail than I could have done myself.  

I have nearly bricked my bird attempting to downgrade the firmware because I thought maybe that was the issue.  This needs be fixed IMMEDIATELY.

I am running a documentation and inspection for an energy company and I NEED this feature to work again.

Thank you for your extremely accurate and detailed description of the problem, I hope we see an update soon.

Update --- Not much to it, but I have verified and spoke with 2 different DJI rep's today and they said their R&D is aware of the issue but no ETA on a fix.
