    I decided to try Follow Me last night.. I found it a little more jerky in movement than Active Track. But then, after several minutes and for no reason it flew off on a tangent, along a tall hedge of conifer trees.. my heart was in my mouth, it narrowly missed another tree flying through a narrow gap at a height of about 4 mtrs..after several seconds I turned off 'follow me' and regained control...I can't find any mention of Follow Me in the user manual..is it there.?

    It briefly mentions it. And, the note probably explains what happened in your case. If your mobile device's GPS location is not accurate, your Phantom will race off to the location where your mobile device is reporting it's located.
