    My first attempt at follow me ended with unexpected results. I was hoping somebody could view my clip and let me know if I am doing something wrong. Problem aside, the gimbal was impressive in light of the thrashing the drone was doing!

    I am in the black SUV crossing a causeway near Sarasota. I am flying the H while my brother drives at a steady 24 mph. I am operating it from the ST16, not the wand. Otherwise, the drone is flying itself and I am just watching while it tracks us.



    Any help figuring out what I did wrong would be appreciated.

    I had the same issue with mine in follow me as well. I noticed your landing gear down and that shouldn't effect anything. I'm curious as well. Here is a video of mine doing this too. I however put my ST16 down while driving. It gets a little squirly at the end.

    Actually my gear was UP. That is how drastic the drone moved. I see yours get very unstable toward the end as well.

    Wow, that is drastic. I had other issues show up like the bounce land a few times, some unstable hovering and a semi fly away backwards into some bushes that I sent my H into support to look at it. Waiting on them to get it back.

    Maybe the accelerometer needs calibration.
    Use a level to get it dead level both ways first.
    Mine was drifting all over the place
    after the firmware upgrade and this cured it 100%

    Once I get mine back from support I'm definitely going to level it like that and be anal about how square it is.

    Also, I think you'll find it does a better job if you don't try to use this mode while the H is straight overhead. Seems to do much better when there is good horizontal separation.

    Agree, I've had mine at least 50m above and 100m back and it works like a dream.
