Can I use "Follow Me" on a subject, not me?

    Still fairly new to these cool modes. I'm assuming "follow me" uses the RC to understand what to follow, but I'm curious if there's a way to set that feature to follow a specific person, other than the person holding the RC.

    Or a P3 with Litchi and the magic leash app on a second smartphone.

    Thanks for the mention guys :D.
    However, just wanted to point out that we are not a "follow-me" app. Think of us as a "smooth filming app" :). Select a subject and we'll make sure the shot stays smooth, the flying is still upto you.

    That being said, if you are flying a P3, doing a "follow-me" shot is fairly easy, just select a subject and Roll forward on your sticks (at a velocity you'd like). The app takes care of the rest ;).
