DJI has just released an update for the Phantom 3 series and Inspire 1 drones! This update brings us new and long waited flight modes that turn the Phantom 3 series into perhaps the best bang for buck drones available. To be exact, downloading and installing the latest firmware, and updating the DJI GO app to the latest version (iOS V2.2.0 and Android V2.1.0 ), will enable Waypoints, Follow Me, Point Of Interest, Home Lock and Course Lock flying modes!
Waypoint mode allows you to predraw a path you wish for your drone to fly. It also gives you free hands to moving the camera as you wish while your drone is flying the preset path.
Follow Me mode makes the Phantom 3 keep its camera on you at all times and also flies automatically when you should move. PS! This is only for Phantom 3 series.
Point Of Interest makes your Phantom 3 automatically revolve around an object, person, or place of your choice in a perfect circle.
Course Lock makes your drone fly along a set path. By turning on Course Lock, your drone sets all flight controls to directions relative to where it is heading.
