DJI Mini 2 Course Lock using RTH (return to home) where you can fly the drone from A to B and operate it independently of the flying direction. This is one of the hidden features that are very nice to know.




Bonus Tip: Instead of flying to the new home point and update, you can just set a new home point on the map :-)

Nope. RTH stick with a dedicated speed.

Would be fun to try out - but seems it sticks with a fixed speed

Cool video Henrik.    Couldn't you just go into the map and set the new home point there instead of doing all that flying?

Not if you lose signal... There is a risk of having the drone auto-land at the new home point with failsafe RTH.

but that feature is always present in the drone whether you try to use it for "course lock" or anything else....it's the same feature/risk.  if it were overly risky, dji wouldn't allow it.  since it's there, i think it's a good idea to "course lock" because by using it this way sensibility, you don't increase the risk of "losing your drone."  of course if someone tries to use this at the end of their battery and 2 miles away....my suggestion would be to set your new home point, then go there to your new home point, then execute a course lock manuever. ;)

Maybe DJI should just impliment PROPER course lock.  As the RTH is just a round about way to do it.  And the beeping is annoying for the RTH
Just wish DJI would release the SDK for the Mini 2 so Litchi can get on it and support it.

+1, Not sure why DJI didn't release it before now.

They STILL haven't released it.  Typically it takes them 11 or 12 months before it's out.
I think this time around is more important than ever, considering they have released an Entry level drone that requires a 64Bit Device to run it.  Which was NOT released info at the time the Mini 2 was released.

Doesn't appear they plan to release it.

DJI is claiming they will have support for the MM2 in the 5.0 SDK release. See the below link video at the 2:10 and 2:34 marks. The video is in Italian but the video shows copies of the communication.  Other communications obtained elsewhere the say that release date is this fall.

FFS!  Seriously.  DJI must be in bed with tablet and phone manufactures.  They release 2 drones that both require a device that has ArmV8 64-Bit Architecture. One of which is an "Entry level Drone"
And uses what DJI calls DJI Fly as a basic, simpler version of beginners. And now they are saying they won't release the SDK?  That's absolute BS.  Especially considering when the Mini 2 was released, there was no specific mention that the device had to be ArmV8 64-Bit Architecture, only AFTER people started to complain did that come out.
Well, looks like my next drone purchase will be Autel.  From what I have heard they are amazing to deal with and their drones are amazing as well.
