Ken, these videos are great, thanks for posting. Quick question...how extensively have you personally used these features?

Just curious how stable they are, and if there are any known issues that we should be aware of before using these features.

I used them all except for terrain follow.
All the rest work great.

DJI-Ken,
Yes, thank you for posting.  I just picked up my Mavic 1-4-17 and have not had a change to even take it out...Colorado weather is very cold and snowy right now  

I have an I1 pro black, P4P, and now the Mavic...looking to use all 3 of them as much as I can, but I can see how you use the Mavic most of the time.  Thanks again.

Great videos. But i find terrain follow useless. It should work in conjunction with active track. I just don't see any reason for terrain follow when i can ascend on my own while flying.

When in active track mode if I'm walking up a hill the Mavic will rise like in terrain follow right?

To those who say they don't see the point in terrain follow, I think it could be neat.. it's about keeping that exact distance from the ground, so maybe you're flying up a slope and although you could control the altitude manually it will look more cinematic if the distance to the ground is exactly uniform the whole way up.

Yes that is correct.
Terrain Follow is used by itself, and Active Track is also used by itself.
So Terrain Follow can be a very useful feature.

Hey... I haven't tried it yet but let me give an example... if i go on a hike here in Hawaii and have the Active Track set on me... as i go up the mountain will it also increase its altitude?

Yes it will.
And if you are not using ActiveTrack but following someone uphill you can use Terrain Follow.

Hi Ken,

Do you have any pointers on how to ensure Precision Landing works each time?  

I ascend slowly to 10m for take off as mentioned in the video but the Precision Landing adjustments shows up maybe about 10% of the time.  So it feels kinda of hit or miss for me and I won't know when I try to land.

It works just fine for me, you have to be within it's operating parameters.

Hi Ken, when I used Active Track with Spotlight, what does the controls do? I tried moving forwards and backwards but the drone doesn't really do that. When I move left and right it does seem like the drone moves left and right but in an arc. Other than that this has to be my favorite flight mode.

I want to use Active track over wi-fi from my phone to start the track. Unfortunately, when I go 80 meters the drone stops at that set range. How can I set the Mavic to keep following me after I have gone further than the 80 m from the home point? Can the Mavic lock on to the position of the phone and not go further than 80 m from the phone when it moves?  I'm sorry if this is not the way to do this but I have no experience with forums.

I think you would need to reset the home point and you need the RC to do that so you may be limited to 80m.

Are you sure you were in Spotlight mode?
You should have fowrard/back control.

Can you post a quick video clip of you attempting to live stream.
Also, have you allowed the DJI GO app all the permissions when you installed the app.
You can try to sync your flight records, then delete/reinstall the app an allow all the permissions the GO app asks for, then try to live stream.

DJI Ken, yes I am certain I am in Spotlight mode but it doesn't go forwards or backwards. When I try to have it go forward it moves in an arc diagonally. I can't really tell if it goes forwards or backwards, it just moves in an arc.

That must be how it operates then.
I can test it out later this afternoon. If you want to get closer then further away, just use Active Track.

Yea I think so. It would be nice we can still control the forward and backwards movements. But please let me know what you find out.

Correct. It does not move forwards and backwards like you expect it. I am still trying to figure out how to move the direction properly.
