I cant seem to find anything about Home and Course lock for the Phantom 3. How is it engaged. Is it done through the app? I thought I remember the P2 having it on the controller.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Course lock works, home lock does not.  Its All in the manual.  Enable ioc in the app, then flip the switch on the controller

Are home Lock and Course Lock the same as Headless mode on other quads and such?

This says it better than I can:

Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
IOC allows users to lock the control orientation of the aircraft in different modes. There are three working
modes for IOC that can be selected in the DJI Pilot app. IOC only works when the aircraft is in F-mode,
therefore the user must toggle the flight mode switch to activate IOC. Refer to the table below:
Course Lock (CL)
The nose direction, at the time that CL is set, will remain the forward direction
regardless of how the orientation and position of the aircraft changes. This will
remain fixed until you reset it or exit CL mode.

Home Lock (HL)*
Record a Home Point (HP) and enter HL mode. The forward and backward
controls will move the aircraft farther from and closer to the established Home
Pont, regardless of how the orientation and position of the aircraft changes.
Point of Interest (POI)* Point of Interest. Record a point of interest (POI). The aircraft can then circle
around the POI and the nose will always points toward the POI.

*Home Lock and Point of Interest feature are coming soon.

So, yes, CL is the same as Headless Mode.

Well I see it now. Didn't realize it would be the second-to-last-page in the whole document after Appendix! lol

Thanks for the heads up. Can't wait to try it. Doing more complex cinematic pans is kind of not possible without at least Course loc.

Has there been any official word about when Home loc and more importantly POI mode will be added?

Thanks for the help all!
