    Some first tests using new follow me mode..
    Had to manual adjust many times as not very responsive but all and all a nice feature.

    I also think max cruising speed in follow me mode is less than on manual mode as it was not able to follow the boat at faster speeds.



    And

    Looks amazing. I am starting to think chasing boats is what follow me was made for!

    That's pretty cool! You're going pretty steady in the boat, it seems to catch up, then slow down, then suddenly yaw slightly...even a little rocking in the first video. How much of the movements are automated, and how much is you?

    I’m with you on the speed issue, I tried it driving around and was careful to keep my speed below 35 mph but it still didn’t stay with me.

    too bad follow me cant lock in on a credit card sized rfi chip of something. Imagine someone stealing your wallet and the drone chasing after them.....
