Special Task Phantom 3 se Can Perform
- Course Lock
The drone will fly in a straight line (i.e the course) no matter what the orientation is or rather where it is facing. This is more lie the only mode that gives unique shooting opportunities, with a lot of camera mobility, Stretching your phone or camera
- out of an airplane to take a shut
- Home Lock
This era of losing your drone due to loss of control is over. All you need to do is pull the right lever towards you and the drone will come back to you no matter where it is or what direction it’s facing. That is taking total control of your drone even when you are no longer in control.
- Follow Me
Follow me mode as the name implies your drone will follow you. However GPS signal must have a wireless signal on your device for this to work This is a great mode for anyone doing sports or any activity and wants an automated directed positioning of want to concentrate on a specific position.
- Point Of Interest
You choose and object and your Phantom 3se will orbit around it while keeping the camera pointed at it at all times. Of course, you would normally want slow sweeping arcs for nice video or else you will have it all muddled up you can make some circles with this option.
The best till last. We waited long enough for this and DJI didn’t. Rather than adding points on the map, you fly to a point and press a button on your controller/screen to set the point. You can then fly to the next point, and press then button again to set a 2nd, then 3rd.. point, etc. The copter will then fly between the points at a speed of your choosing. The camera can see in an arc between points or can be pointed forward at all times. It works very well and you can adjust the gimbal while flying.
