    I went and did some test flying yesterday as I had put on the DBS mod and wanted to play.

    When I put Swarm into Follow Me mode she didn't. Left stick worked (up and down and turn). Right stick did nothing. Not closer, not further and not side to side. I walked away from her and she just sat ignoring me.

    Altitude was about 50 feet and distance was about the same when I started.

    Very good GPS reception on the tablet, or so sayeth the app.

    Any ideas?

    Were you getting good signals? I suspect wiring problem.

    The GPS signal was good, the controller signal was good.

    Swarm is a P3S.

    What smartphone/device are you using?? Make sure your device has a strong GPS.

    I am using the Samsung Tab S2.

    Go went into follow me mode, it just didn't follow. In the past when I have had weak signal it wouldn't go into follow me mode at all.
