    I just can't get it to work what am I doing wrong
    I'm using a phantom 3 professional w/ 2 iPhone 6s GPS turned on

    For orbit mode I it will only orbit around me not the airspace plus doesn't focus on center of poi when told to focus on airspace will reposition it's self and fly either at operator position of random spot

    Focus mode it will connect calibrate and all
    But in flight will focus on only the operator instead of airspace with the iPhone 6s

    Cruise mode same thing won't focus on airspace and POI is always off

    When I go from menus to dashboard if I do it more then once the feed from the camera and the phantom freeze so the camera cancels

    I recommend sending your complaints to the developers, they're a better source of info than we are.

    @andregymness, can you outline the exact process that you are using to set up, for example, a POI mission? Mine works flawlessly.

    Cruise mode
    Intermediate
    Joystick
    Joystick
    Aircraft
    Yaw strategy focus
    Focus strategy subject
    Subject either POI or airspace
    Altitude 1 fly thing low
    Fxed operator
    Take off position

    Orbit
    Is pretty much the same

    Sorry you've lost me completely.

    How are you setting up a POI mission?

    I havent used airspace for focus subject however poi and other modes have worked as expected. Check you have no other apps running in the background (esp dji go) and latest firmware on aircraft and remote. Re airspace you may have a comnection issue between iphones.

    You just want to orbit with focus on a particular location right?

    How does everything look in path inspector/mission preview?

    My challenge is rotating around a car very slow while it yaws and focuses on the car at a low height

    I can orbit around operator poi but not low not airspace though for some reason focus wise as well poi and AIRSPACE the main thing I wanna use doesn't work results in focusing on something different like operator but airspace Focus on nothing

    I personally have not used airspace, but understand what you are trying to do. Are you able to see the second iPhone on the map view? If so, is it steady? If so, did you select this device for focus subject while in the orbit mode?
    I think you are probably one of the first phantom users to try airspace. Some inspire users have done it to follow another inspire.

    Yes I can see it on the map I believe it's steady I select the mode before hand but can it only follow another drone in airspace can it follow the phone
