Intelligent Flight Modes:
These modes help you to effortlessly create professional aerial shots that would require practice and training with their help to achieve the same shot.
TapFly: With the TapFly feature, you can tap on your mobile device’s screen to fly in the designated direction without using the remote controller. The aircraft will automatically avoid obstacles it sees or brake and hover provided the light is sufficient. Make sure the aircraft is at least 6ft (2m) above the ground then In DJI GO 4 select TapFly, read the prompts and then tap once on the target direction and wait for the (GO) icon to appear. Tap again to confirm the selection, and the aircraft will fly in that direction.
ActiveTrack: This mode allows you to mark and track a moving object on your mobile device screen. The aircraft will automatically avoid obstacles in its flight path. Make sure the aircraft is at least 6ft (2m) above the ground then In DJI GO 4 select ActiveTrack and then tap once on the subject you want to track then tap Confirm. If the subject is not automatically recognized, drag a box around it. The box will turn green when tracking is in progress. If the box turns red, the object could not be identified, and you should try again.
Cinematic Mode: In DJI GO 4 select CinematicMode. In Cinematic mode, the braking distance for the aircraft is extended. The aircraft will slow down gently until it stops, keeping footage smooth and stable even if the control inputs are choppy.
QuickShot: These are autopilot flight modes that take a 10-second video of a subject that can be viewed, edited, or shared to social media from the playback menu. (Spark + Mavic)
Dronie: Fly backward and upward, with the camera locked on your subject. How to use Dronie.
Helix: Fly upward, spiraling around your subject. How to use Helix.
Rocket: Ascend with the camera pointing downwards. How to use Rocket.
Circle: Circle around your subject. How to use Circle.
To use Quickshot your drone needs to be at least 1.5 m above the ground, then select QuickShot and follow the prompts. Select your target subject in the camera view and choose a shooting mode. Tap GO to begin recording. The aircraft will fly back to its original position after shooting is finished.
Gesture: If this is enabled you can use certain gestures to control your aircraft. Please consult your aircraft’s manual for more details.
Tripod Mode: In Tripod Mode, the maximum flight speed is limited to 2.2 mph (3.6 kph). Responsiveness to stick movements is also reduced for smoother more controlled movements. This mode can only be used when lighting conditions are good, and the drone has a strong GPS signal.
Waypoints: Record a flight path, then the aircraft will fly along the same path repeatedly while you control the camera and orientation. The flight path can be saved and reused in the future. (Not Spark)
Follow Me: A virtual tether is created between the aircraft and the mobile device so that the aircraft can track your movement as you move. Note that Follow Me performance is subject to GPS accuracy on the mobile device. (Not Spark)
Home Lock: If this is enabled then when you pull the pitch stick backward the aircraft will move towards its recorded Home Point. (Not Spark)
Course Lock: If this is enabled it will lock the current nose direction as the aircrafts’ forward direction. The aircraft will move in the locked direction regardless of its orientation (yaw angle). (Not Spark)
Draw: In this mode, the aircraft will fly along a flight path drawn on-screen. As it flies, it will automatically brake and hover when it sees obstacles provided that the lighting is adequate – no darker than 300 lux nor brighter than 10,000 lux. To use this mode make sure the aircraft is at least 2m (6ft) above the ground, select the mode, next draw a line on the screen to create a path. Finally, Tap GO and the aircraft will fly along the path. (Phantom 4 Pro/A + Inspire 2)
Terrain Follow Mode: In this mode, the aircraft uses its Downward Vision System to maintain height above ground between 1 and 10 meters. This mode is designed for use on grassland sloped ay no more than 20°. When this mode is turned on the aircraft will record its current height and maintain it as it ascends the slopes. NOTE: the aircraft will not descend on downwards slopes.
To use this mode tap (Intelligent Flight Icon) (Phantom 4 Pro/A + Mavic + Inspire 2 )
Spotlight Pro: In this mode allows a single pilot to capture complex, dramatic images. The gimbal will automatically adjust to keep the camera pointing at the subject.
Quick Mode: use your finger to draw a square around the object to begin tracking
Composition Mode: Use your finger to draw a square. When the subject enters the square, press the C2 button to begin tracking. Press the C2 button again to stop tracking.
In free mode: you can control the aircraft’s heading independently of the camera.
In follow mode: the aircraft heading will be the same as that of the camera. (Inspire 2)
