the AT is excellent on M3 , but it has its limits, its not a skydio so should be treated within its parameters.

Nobody is ever going to be walking in and out of trees like this filming themselves like that. But it was a tough test of the drone.

This YouTube does not learn. He crashed the drone once and now wants to tempt fate again.

Active track5.0 and APAS 5.0 are awesome with some bugs in some decisions that it makes but DJI will fix this sooner or later. The big problem is that it does not use a hybrid Active track and GPS track. Or produce a beacon-like device to do it. This is making the Active track less equal to Skydio 2. If DJI hear and do this and of course fix some bugs the Mavic 3 will have the best Active track and APAS. One more thing is to make it faster. With this hybrid tracking, it will give priority to bypass obstacles and without hard data processing, if it loses the target well ok it will find it again with the GPS of the remote and after visual again.

As a retired test engineer, I can identify with the efforts, bad or good. It's figuratively called "pushing the envelope".

Well. I don't want to give up smooth video just because some folks want to run around/into some trees. Apples and oranges.

It can have both with a digital switch in DJI fly app somewhere below apas with label active track and below a switch with visual or hybrid. Visual will be cinematic and Hybrid like a skydio 2 situation.

I am finding AT on the M3 a lot less usable than my M2 Pro. Tracks fine walking around. My main interest is kayaking. The drone tracks me to the waters edge but as soon as I get in the kayak it looses me. I’ve tried a few things - sun behind drone etc. Always wear bright clothing. Presumably the area/shape being tracked changes too much. For all that the M2 Pro was more reliable.

Question- Do you have the drone set to track you has a person and then expect it to track you still when you jump into the kayak?

Yes - I make sure the person icon is showing before hitting go

When you sit in the kayak, the drone sees a different shape and not the shape of a person standing or walking anymore hence it will lose you. For a more accurate active track you need to select this mode when you are in the kayak and not walking.

I will have to find a waterproof cover for the controller
