    Q1. With all the material and discussion I've heard on the Phantom 4, I've not yet heard or seen anything relating to calibrating it's compass. Is this now a thing of the past?

    Q2. I've seen a couple of shots where the Phantom 4 is rotating around a subject when the subject is moving… Is this an specific P4 function/fly manoeuvre or is this just a combination of the Track Subject and the user using the sticks to do the orbit?

    Q3. Since the radio controller uses a Lipo battery too, does this need to be left partially charged in the same way the aircraft battery does?

    Thanks in advance..

    1. No, I think it still needs calibration, as the I1, S1000, etc. all need it.
    2. It is a specific P4 function, part of ActiveTrack.
    3. No, even the P3 and some P2 had rechargeable controllers; you can store at full charge.

    I watched a video this am and you still need stick input along with active track to shoot a moving circle of a moving subject.

    No, one of the main highlights of ActiveTrack is that moving objects can be orbited without manual control.
