    Follow Me is now available on the DJI Ultimate Flight with GS. The developer plans to refine it as he works on the next feature...POI settings for filming. I also completed a 1900 foot GS mission today. LOVING the app for android!!

    A little fine tuning should make it work better.
    Appears to be creating waypoints "on the fly" using the controller's location.
    I noticed that wherever the bird turned, that is where the controller turned.
    Is that a true "follow me" thing?
    Next test would be to have it follow while controller is on a motorcycle like in a motocross.

    Way points is exactly what it does, so it truly does follow you! Apparently, the communication needed/used between the Phantom and the app only takes place once every second. A boat/car/motorcycle moves 73 feet in a second at 50 mph, so it's probably not at the development stage for speed yet! I thought it may be fun to try while playing a golf hole and riding a cart.....or maybe stick the phone in the dogs collar at the park!! Any other fun ideas I can try???

    It was brought up before that the Vision follows the phone _and_ controller. Technically it does follow thee phone but the phone links up with the ranger extender on the controller. Separate those two by a few hundred feet and you lose connection to the Vision.
