    I tried the point of interest today, was easy and really nice.
    Then I thought of enabling the follow me but I got a message that I did to enable GPS. Not sure what the issue was, hope someone can help.

    GPS has to be enabled on your smartphone/tablet, did you have that enabled?

    The Go app doesn't make it very clear that it means GPS on your device, rather than the aircraft itself :)

    Funnily enough I also tried the Follow Me fuction for the first time a few days ago. It worked perfectly for the first few minutes, patiently following behind us despite a steady headwind.

    But after a few minutes I looked around and it was just hovering, about 15-20 metres back. I went back to it, disabled and re-enabled follow me, but nothing worked. Gave up and headed for home at that point anyway, as the kids were getting cold and bored.

    Would be interested to hear if it works better for you anyway.
