I want to try flying the Mavic following my car, and see if Sport Mode would make it go faster.  Yes, I know all the dangers with flying in Sport mode !

But for the like of me, I just couldn't find where is this set?  I would think that would be quick easy to find, but apparently not, perhaps with the lastest update.  For example the Compass Calibration is now hidden in Advanced Settings - Sensors.

Can someone help, please ?

Sorry, do you mean I can flick a switch on the remote, right side:  Which switch, and how would I know, I am on Sport Mode?

Yes, and it will tell you on the controller/App.

The controller will show Sports on the main display.

Yes but you must go into stetting first and Toggle on alll fight modes first
and then you can use the sports switch on the side
That being said......GOOD LUCK.!
.
Only two thing come from "Sports Mode"......JOY and /or  Heartache..... Choice is yours
Remember.... Don't Mavic faster then your ability.........mytwocents.

Thanks.  I got it to work.  But it does not allow any of the intelligent tracking modes, I have to switch back to "ordinary" mode to be able to use Active Track.

Sports mode is mainly for one thing........speed......if you need to use camera features sports mode is no good really.

This is why Dji hasn't given us the option to manually select Atti mode on the Mavic .  People would be flicking that switch also before reading the manual or understanding what it does

YES I second that. Read the manual, and watch a number of you tube vids on the Mavic. It will help you
understand what is going on with the craft and how to operate the craft!

There's alot.

Example: Sport Mode switch. Location and function, and how to enable it.

And there is sooo much more, Just take it one step at a time.

Fly happy and Fly safe....

If you turn off obstacle avoidance your AC will move faster in AT but if it comes on a tree then your Mavic will be part of that tree.

There's loads of great mavic tutorials on YouTube. I'd watch some of them before flying again.

I have a feeling that if you have to ask how to turn on Sport Mode. This Mavic is already wrecked by now.
