This is going to be interesting.  Follow Me sounds like a flight from mission impossible.  Hope it comes with tree, shrub, house, people, power line and vehicle avoidance technology.  We shall see...........Sept 7, you sure?

It will not come with any obstacle avoidance tech. That would require hardware which is not present on the copter.

DJI is very fast in providing FW updates. unfortunatly they sometimes come with undocumented feature, (new bugs).
I wish they would be as fast with their support I am still trying to get their attention for more than a week with my problem. :-(
Improving their product is good, but supporting it is even better.

Hi everybody

During a waypoint mission, is it neccessary to maintain controller / videolink connection with the drone?
i.e, the mission is stored in the drone, on on the mobile device?

This way it would be possible to fly behind large objects, or in areas with big RF pollution etc

Why did DJI mention that only developers will be able to use SDK to develop apps. with these functions. They never spoke about possibility of these functions in DJI GO? I now bought an app. that can already fly waypoints, follow etc., but with lots of developing issues especially on lower-end tablets and phones with less processors.

If you like maps and map making, you're really going to like way-point flying.  For the last few weeks, I've been beta testing a 3rd party mapping app on my P3P, and it works flawlessly.  So simple - click, click, click ... go.  Several minutes later it auto lands and all your photos have been captured.  Upload all your pictures to their site, and a few hours later you have an amazingly detailed map.  Compared to Google Maps, it's like putting on eye glasses for the very first time at the eye doctor.

Ha, by this time next week this forum should be buzzing again.  : )

Who loses power?
If the remote RC loses power the Aircrafts should RTH.
If the aircrafts loses power it just crashes.

This is what I think.. In follow me it will constantly update the Home Point every second to its current location and if it goes to RTH, the last recorded location will be home.. This is what I believe it does anyway .

Best to set it to Hover instead of landing depending on location ..

Way points will be nice when they are saved.  I would love to do a "documentary" of sorts as Fall approaches and the leaves start changing!  BUT as a lot of us know, I'm sure there will be a few bugs to be worked out.  PLEASE for the love of all that is good, don't everyone go ballistic if some small detailed of this rather LARGE update happens.  Take it slow, and everyone get your bottle of whiskey out now!
