A very quick look at the follow me mode in the SteadiDrone AGC (Android Ground Control) App and the SteadiDrone QU4D. Using the GPS system the drone is set to 'follow me' mode and the follows the gps position of the android device using the SteadiDrone AGC App, very cool stuff!
Today I tested out the follow-me mode that's built into 3DRobotics' ArduCopter autopilot system for drones. The mode worked seamlessly. Here's a run-down of how I set up my copter and put it into follow-me mode.
A functional follow-me mode is a huge milestone - especially for action sports filming. With a few more tweaks, I'll be comfortable using this system to film myself skiing or mountain biking without another camera man!
