    I put together a quick demo on the POI mode of the P3. I'm working on 2 others, Waypoints and Follow Me.

    Good perspective - thanks for this.

    Quick question - what app did you use to record your ipad screen?

    Not an iPad... it's a Nvidia Shield. I used it's native screen capture ability.

    Nice videos!

    However, I wish DJI would put a center-point overlay on the screen when it prompts for the target. The videos I've seen all seem to have the subject weighted to one side or the other, which I am confident is equal issue between pilot and DJI (GPS/compass).

    One semi-solution would be to turn the grid on, giving you a much smaller box to judge a center-point, but it would still be nice to have an absolute camera reference, likely tightening up the offset of the object being filmed.
