The Follow-me mode uses GPS and I believe the altimeter. The Wizard and the ST16 have both, so the vertical and horizontal tracking will be active with both units. I have not seen any videos at this time which demonstrate the altitude following. I will be trying that as soon as my order comes in, but that could be another week. I agree with the errors in the manuals. They should have had a better proofreader before publishing.Thanks for the conversation Steve. 'Twould seem the st16 has limitations as well as supposedly the wizard follows up and down whereas with the controller not. Only reason Q500 is mixed in the post is because Yuneec has it mixed in the wizard manual. Questions really arent that difficult for someone who actually owns the craft. Have yet to see a video of wizard in action with follow me tracking altitude changes, if you have a link would love to see it. Does not appear to do it in this one:
The problem of determining actual operation is difficult with the limited info, typos, and possibly outright inaccurate published manuals, different remotes, and possible differences once the real sense is invoked. That's why I ask for clarification from an actual early user as these things aren't generally returnable.
..I agree that would be a real bummer, as that is one of the reasons I purchased the Typhoon over the competitor...I haven't had a chance to test the wizard yet as I'm still getting familiar with the st-16....This is really disappointing for me as my main reason for purchasing the Typhoon H was for the Watch Me function. My sports is such that you go downhill, and filming that action is impossible if the drone doesn’t understand and follow also in downwards/upwards directions…
At 2:54 in the video, the text says "Thanks to the Wizard, the drone adjusts its altitude as well."Have yet to see a video of wizard in action with follow me tracking altitude changes, if you have a link would love to see it. Does not appear to do it in this one:
