Can anyone please explain to me what the new update (noted below) is about.  I don't see the "QuickShot" feature in the app nor do I fully understand the "Dynamic Home Point for ActiveTrack".  

QuickShot?  were is it and why is it needed
Dynamic Home Point?  ONLY used in ActiveTrack?  Will this malfunction and we start haveing a ton of "flyaways"?

Any help would be awesome.  Thanks Forum


• Added QuickShot feature (requires DJI GO 4 app v4.1.10 or higher).
• Added Dynamic Home Point for ActiveTrack mode.

Quickshot. When Aircraft is in the air click on RC icon this will bring you to quickshot.
You don’t need it, it’s just a bit of fun.
Dynamic homepoint for activetrack if using active track you can set homepoint to where aircraft is, will it malfunction, think if dji thought it would it wouldn’t be there. Time will tell.

Check the other threads on this topic.  Quickshots aren't available to Android users, and we have yet to hear from DJI as to whether they will ever be available.

Quickshots are functions from the spark. The function allows the mavic to do autonomy-difficult-director-like flights like dronie, rocket, helix.

DHP update to craft position for Active track only. This was introduced to stop the craft from RTH 2km down the road if you were tracking yourself on a pushbike/moving object. In the sparks case, it would allow mobile-wifi-control to be unlimited distance in Active tracking (originally limited to 100m radius from take off/home position). In other words, you will need to reset home position every 100m to continue active tracking.
DHP to craft will also will fix the spark's gesture mode active tracking.

The only gripe i have with this is when the tracking is lost and signal is lost then the craft will hover and land where it is. I was hoping DHP would be set to follow your GPS enabled smart device (found in the old Phantom 2 Vision series and the first iteration of the DJI Pilot app (now known as GO 4 app).

You can refer to the user's manual at page 23 for the details about Quickshot, or you can learn something from Spark's tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8-vxWY64sBNIrePb_pR6Rd2Cp8GaKa_i
For the dynamic Home Point, you can also refer to the manual at page 19. MPQS.png

Its disappointing Dynamic Home Point won't function the same as it does on my Phantom 2 Vision+.  Would remove a lot of drama shooting from boats.

Hi Thor.

Do  you know it this version of the app is Hardware related or not?

I don't get the quick shot mode on my Iphone 5 but it's there and working on my Iphone 6 (Both are S versions)?

Technically speaking, iPhone 5S is on the support list, so this device should work with DJI GO 4. Whether Quickshot mode is available is related to the DJI GO 4 app version. Please make sure that the app on your iPhone 5S is up to date. Please provide me the related screenshots if you had updated the app but still couldn't access Quickshot.

Dynamic homepoint should be that the MP set new homepoint to RC position instead of tracking person. So if you moved quickly and you lost connection the MP goes to you(RC), instead of flying back.
I hope DJI can changed that.

Thor, after the update to .12 on IoS the feature is now available on the Iphone 5 also. (In the home environment at least)

This!!!

Or even the option to set it to RC or mavic. I can't see any good reason to use the mavic though. The RC makes so much more sense.

Good to know the new functions are available anyway. Does it work properly?

For now, it only supports refreshing the drone's position. Hope more functions will be released in the future.
