Did some more testflights today but didn´t find Course Lock I had on my Phantom 4 Pro and from what I´ve read was also present with the Mavic 1 Pro.
The only function I found that 'should' do the same is 'Tap to Fly Free', but maybe I´m to silly for that or this is something different since the copter still flies in the direction of the nose.
Anyone else who is missing the 'cable cam' course lock function?!

Apparently "its coming".
But like a lot of features, we dont have it yet.

Home lock and a few others are missing too.

It's even more odd given hyperlapse is basically a course lock with interval.

Natalia, I forgot to mention that I want this for video as it worked with my former P3P and my P4P.
I want to fly myself but in a fixed direction, like a cable cam.

Yes, really bummed here also not to have course and home lock, used it all the time with the MP for my cinema video. I've been trying to get by using tapfly, but its not anywhere near the same function. I really hope this comes soon, wasn't expecting to lose key features after spending 2k for the upgrade with the fly more package!

“She” is describing Hyperlapse course lock—not the same as regular video course lock in older models.  It is rumored that course lock will appear in later firmware updates, but until I see it....

(Pardon the quotes on the “she”: I’m new to these fora, and admittedly still struggling with the professionalism and judgment of using fake comic book character identities for DJI representatives.  Maybe I’m too old, but to me, credibility is strained when Hit Girl or Black Widow or Elektra says DJI is working on a fix for a technical issue.  Feels like Daffy Duck telling me that somehow replacing my Ethernet cable will resolve a Kerberos and LDAP issue.  Thankfully the user community is very helpful and takes up the slack....)

I also really miss the Video features of Course and Home lock. DJI, will these return? Tap to fly doesn't work near as well.

PLEASE ADD COURSE LOCK BACK TO WORK AS IT PREVIOUSLY DID!!!

It’s complete BS that you eliminated it - which it was eliminated. Let’s not call a completely different function course lock, cause it’s not.

How about the mode that brings the drone in a straight line back to home? Not the “home button” as if you turn the drone, it now won’t work to get the drone back to you.

Tap fly free works exactly like that it will away from you and straight back to you.

I miss course lock, to be able to fly in a straight line, whilst rotating the aircraft is a very useful feature for video. Hopefully it will arrive soon. Tap fly is not the same as Course Lock.

Ariel.... glad someone finally said it.   The forum names are just plain silly.   Sort of like calling tech support in India and being helped by "BOB".

I am new to this forum and new owner of Mavic 2 Pro. It looks like the Course Lock feature is not provided with this product and I am very disappointed not having this feature on the DJI go 4 app/Mavic 2 Pro.                          
This is a sample of what I would like to do and looks like it "Was" available in previous models:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mzxTBs4i9o    Anyone have some updated info if this will be available for us Mavic 2 Pro owners?

After buying the PH3SE (black Phantom sheep), but which still has many useful features and allowed me to learn how to make good videos, I bought the Mavic 2 Pro two weeks ago, a drone for 1500 euros, but course lock and home lock have disappeared !!!!! Congratulations to Dji, which eliminates two of the most used functions from videomakers. Do something right away.

DJI has had over 6 months to finish this half-baked bird but haven't.  They have our money and have moved on the other newer products.

Hate to say it on here but the litchi app has bolth built into it the UI seems a bit old school and blocky but the app has worked great for me on my M2Z and Spark?

Tap fly only goes one way. Course lock you can slide back and forth, trying different manoeuvres. Much more useful

Im guessing 10 months on Course Lock isn't coming back.  Which is a shame - theres no equivalent on the new Mavic and it was a very very useful mode.

Sadly I think your right.  They haven't even fixed some of the bugs in the POIs yet let alone bring back features we all assumed would be included in an upgrade.
