    That was Nice Mark..
    I liked the one with the Kids Playing, having action in the vid makes it interesting.
    Did you do just one way point? showing us how you could move the camera while the bird was flying?

    I wish the POI could be lowered I have some cars I would like to have a closer side view. Maybe Lickme offers a lower POI.
    Cheers

    Thanks. Yes it was one waypoint. Basically setup as a zip line.

    The POI flying can be at any elevation, changeable during the orbiting. There is no requirement to orbit from above. However, you do need to fly over the object to first set the POI, and you must then fly at least 5 meters away from the center point on the radius.

    I Thank you for that... so an Altitude of 4 or 5 feet is doable once the rotation is in effect?

    No reason with the ground sensor that you couldn't go even lower, as far as I can tell. Great idea!

    Is there a minimum turning radius for POI? I would like to circle around a Marquee tent in my back yard but there's lots of trees on one side and the house ~40ft on the other..

    Someone just quoted 5 meters above. That's about 16 ft radius or 32 ft diameter.

    In theory, follow me should work with any device that has gps. Is your iPad mini 2 a wifi or cellular model? I believe only cellular versions are equipped with a gps chip. I've also heard that tethering might work. Has anyone tried that?

    Still had signal. My daughter was holding on to the RC. It did lose the connection at one point. We noticed that it quit moving so we went back and I quit the follow me mode and the restarted it. Worked fine after that.
