Learn how to use the Follow On-the-fly Mode. Fly the drone into position and start Follow mode, which tracks the GPS position of your mobile device, and allows you to optionally make other adjustments during flight.
Beyond just doing GPS Follow, Dronelink offers a few unique features that make Follow Mode even more useful:
- Adjust follow distance, altitude, orientation, and camera tilt using the remote controller real-time
- Enable dynamic home point for RTH
- Automatically change drone altitude over changing elevations
Step 1 - Select Follow from the On-the-fly menu
With a plugged in drone, navigate to On-the-Fly, and select Follow
Step 2 - Select Get Started and Take Off
Select Get Started and fly the drone to your preferred starting follow location. Make sure to select a safe altitude well above all obstacles.
Step 3 - Optionally, Configure Follow Function Settings

It is possible to start and stop video during follow mode execution.

Using the Map Preview
The map preview displays various useful information in follow mode.
Adjusting Framing During Follow Mode
As you are being followed you can adjust the drones distance, rotation, altitude, and tilt with your remote controller. As this happens, the map preview shows the projected new location of the drone. The actual drone will move into this new location with a slight delay.
The faster your location is moving, the faster the drone will respond to inputs and moving to the new position.
