    Has anyone that received their Phantom 4 figured out where IOC or Course Lock is? This is F mode. I heard it's in the app now since it was removed from the switch. Is that true?

    Intelligent Flight Modes are now only accessible while in P-mode. You can enable them via this new icon on the left side of the DJI GO app:

    It's both. And the app has changed. Took me off guard yesterday. Bottom icon on the the left.

    Hmm, I thought the manual said that app link was to enable obstacle avoidance. I searched on F mode and IOC in the manual but didn't find anything.

    If course lock only works in P mode, that means I can't chase boats and wakeboarders anymore due to the slow speed of P mode. Hmm. That use to work great in my P3, allowing me to keep the camera on the subject, independent from the flight path. Tracking won't work either, too slow in P mode. Oh wait, tracking works in S mode too!
