    I had my first flight tonight with the new firmware and GO app. The new functionality has really brought back the pleasure of flying, photography, and videography.

    Home Lock is something I really appreciate. I used it a lot on my phantom 2. I'm glad it has finally made a return. I don't have any other app to compare it to, but the POI works well for me. I believe I will be using it a lot.

    I'm not sure how much I will use waypoints.

    I'm also pleased to say I am now experiencing practically no video lag on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.4! Thank God!!!

    The joy has really returned to my flying! Thanks DJI!!!

    I just downloaded the new firmware successfully as well as the app. I don't see any "buttons" within the app. How don't use these features?

    You have to have bird in the air flying for new options to show up

    Ok, I assume the "buttons" will show up on the screen. So far no change at all.

    Flip the switch on the upper left-hand corner of the remote. I think it should go from P to F. Afterward, the options will appear in the app.

    Does this work for you?

    If not, let me know.

    There are a few really good videos that others have posted in this form explaining how to access these features and how to use them. If you can't find them, I would be happy to help you. :)

    Best to you.

    Many thanks. I will try that and get back to you. I've looked for tutorial videos but keep coming up short on the new features.
