DJI Follow Me Mode explained

Learn how to activate and use the DJI Follow Me Mode effectively.

Follow Me Mode is the oldest method of DJI drones.

If you can´t use the Active Track Mode or you don´t want to use it, you can also use the 

Follow Me function which DJI built into almost all drones.

In this mode you can automatically follow persons or objects, while the drone tries to make them

the centre of your videos.  From experience I have to admit that this is not always the case.

 

To use the Follow-Me Mode the drone should be connected with a remote control and at best with a smartphone, it should have a minimum altitude of 10m and a maximum altitude of 500m, but for most

videos an altitude between 10 - 30m is recommended.

While the drone is following the GPS signal, which the remote control transmits with a speed of 10Hz (10x per second) you can change the altitude or adjust the gimbal at any time.

Moreover, you can pause, end or take control of your mission at any time.

But consider that the Follow Me Mode is not always useful, since the persons or objects you followed are often not in the picture because the sole use of GPS signals is too slow and not precise enough. 

That is why I would recommend the new ActiveTrack, if possible.

THIS DRONE made by DJI is not only a masterpiece when it comes to autonomous tracking, it also offers 360° anticollission sensors, which make it possible to film the tracked object not only from the back - you can also circle around or fly in front of it – without the danger of colliding with a tree or something like that.
