    In reference to the P2's "course lock" mode, I do know that the "follow" feature in the P3 is basically the same.
    Question is, can I do the course lock mode, follow, in the p3 flight simulator?
    How is this set up?

    I think you're confused. "Follow" on the P3 refers to the gimbal. Course lock is toggled using the switch on the upper left side of the controller. I don't see why it wouldn't work the same in the simulator.

    To answer my own question, I put the bird in "follow" mode in the app.
    Then went into the flight simulator.
    And yes, this is the old "course lock" mode as in the P2.
    Not a "follow me" mode.
    As I moved the bird around, the camera always pointed in the same direction.
    Now I need to learn how to aim the camera where I want it to point.
