DJI MINI 3 – CAN IT TRACK ME UP A HILL?

By | May 11, 2022

Get the DJI MINI 3 PRO on Adorama:
FLYTCASE for the MINI 3 PRO by FlytPath (limited stock):
Now that the DJI Mini 3 has obstacle avoidance, we also get FOCUS TRACK on this tiny drone. Focus Track consists of ACTIVE TRACK (Follow Me), SPOTLIGHT and POINT OF INTEREST (POI). These intelligent flight modes help the pilot perform complex follow me movements by simply selecting the subject in the app and hitting go.

Check out my friend DC Rainmaker video here. He always pushes the limits of Active Track and Obstacle Avoidance.

This video is sponsored by adorama all Right guys well we're back here at the Hill i normally like to take all my Drones that have the follow me function And yes the dji mini 3 pro does have Focus track which includes all the Favorite functions on all of our dji Drones active track which is the ability To follow you we also have spotlight as Well as point of interest or poi and for Those who are familiar with my channel You guys are probably familiar with this Hill and the main reason why i like Taking follow me function drones up the Hill is because a lot of times some Don't follow you when you go up and down Elevation and for me if you are going to Be using some sort of follow me function You're not always going to be on flat Ground you might be on a bike you might Be running up a hill it might be Going down the hillside and you want to Know that the drone is able to ascend And descend and just like all the other Drones let's take the dji mini 3 pro up This hill see how well it does if it can Follow me if it can ascend and descend With me Let's test it out and then when we get To the top of the hill i'll show you Some of the other modes the spotlight as Well as the point of interest but before I jump on my bike and head up the hill a Quick word from today's sponsor adorama

If you guys aren't familiar with adorama Adorama is one of the largest most Reputable online retail stores that Specializes in everything from musical Equipment electronics camera gear lenses And even this dji mini 3 drones as well As all the other drones from the major Manufacturers the only thing i like About adorama that sets them apart from Some other online retailers is that they Always have different deals of the day And they also have a huge catalog of Used equipment so if you are out there Looking for some new gear i would always Suggest looking through the used Equipment you can definitely save some Extra money in that section and when it Comes to drones the one thing that Adorama is different is that they Actually do sell all of the enterprise Drones so huge thanks to adorama for Sponsoring this video so if you are Looking for the best prices on drones Camera equipment lighting equipment i'll Leave the links to adorama down below in The video description and now let's test Out the mini 3 pro Up this hill with active track all right So we have the dji mini 3 pro up in the Air as you can see it's right right There and i'm going to be recording a Bunch of different cameras i've got uh My Drone on a

An older mount for my bike and it's all Gaff taped because there's no mount out Probably yet for this thing so i just Kind of get a rigged it and then i have A 360 camera here hopefully recording More stuff the drone is up in the air Right there And uh this will be the first uh flight Hopefully goes well Hopefully it goes better than my last One or not last one with this one last One with my other drone we are gonna Leave everything in auto and let me turn Obstacle avoidance on Let's go bypass Circle around Myself and then i do see a little icon Of a little running icon i'm going to do Active track And i want it to trace me so that means It'll go from behind there is no option Here because we don't have any other Sensors like side sensors Or uh that you can't do And change your direction from what i Can see all i can see is that we have Trace and parallel all right so it's in Trace mode so let's go Let's see how it does with these uh cars Coming down the hill too All right here we go Like i said the elevation i think is a Bigger deal so we're already at 50 feet So elevation seems to be working well

Let me change my gears here so i can Actually Try pedaling up this hill a little bit There you go [Music] And we'll pick up some speed here too [Music] So far so good from what i can see on my Screen Looks like we're maintaining distance We're about uh 94 feet up from original uh takeoff And it is following me fine Pick up the speed around this corner Here And this corner on some drones gave it Uh A little bit of a some trouble So let's see how this how this one does Down shift here All right looks good Looks good That is what i'm talking about There you go I like it all right we're still Got some bushes and trees around here Let's see how It does here Perfect [Music] Here it is now i'm gonna keep going Because why not Uh there's an area back here where i Like to go

It's a little small trail It just goes it just loops all the way Around So i am slowing down and then the drone Kind of comes a little bit closer Because Of my speed So let's take it over here And i like to take it on this little Loop over here Let's see how the drone does still got Me still on me Nice That is solid All right so now that we're at the top Of the hill let's test out a couple of Other features here we have spotlight so If you aren't familiar with spotlight Spotlight basically you just select your Subject on screen and what you can do Now is fly your drone whichever way you Like and the drone ideally will Automatically keep you on the screen it Automatically keep the subject In the middle of the screen without you Having to always adjust the camera with Just the angle it'll do that all itself All you have to do is worry about flying So right now i'm in spotlight mode If i pull my camera back You can see it keeps me right there i Just just with one hand like i said i'm Just gonna push the camera to one side And as you can see the camera

And the drone will automatically start Shifting around i'm not doing anything I'm not moving the Drone i'm not changing the camera angle So if i move the drone towards me The camera automatically starts tilting Down as you can see If i go to the other side and i pull Back The drone automatically will start Adjusting that camera angle so basically That's what it does it's spotlighting Your subject and you don't have to worry About some complex movements on your Sticks to try to maintain that subject In the middle of the screen it'll Actually do everything for you as you Can see when i lower the drone the Camera starts tilting up Now if i move towards me And i tilt and i move the drone up You can see the camera's automatically Tilting it i'm not using that scroll Wheel at all it's doing everything Itself so really cool feature for Spotlight it's actually a really good One to use if you're following a subject I followed some people on a boat and all I had to do is make sure it's on Spotlight i just have to fly around the Boat and the drone will automatically Move the camera to keep the subject in The middle all right next i'm going to Do is point of interest so what we want

To do now is Circle me as my subject There it is hit point of interest right There and you have the ability to change Which direction you want the drone to go And how fast you want it to go so do i Want to go clockwise and i want it to go Fast uh we can do that but medium speed Hit go And you also want to make sure there's Nothing around you that you might run Into because there is remember there is No side sensors here on the drone so Once you engage that point of interest Just make sure there is nothing around There you go full circle All right here we go time to head back Down the mountain Picking up some good speed down here too 20 miles an hour Still following All right up and back down the mountain That was the biggest thing i wanted to Make sure is that it can not only just Track you but it can also ascend and Descend with you Like i mentioned some of the other Drones would only do it on flat ground So good to know that the mini 3 pro Survived It did very similar to how the mavic 3 Did when i did this test last time if You guys haven't seen that one check Above as well as down below in the video

Description but overall here we are with A sub 250 drone That has obstacle avoidance active track Point of interest spotlight mode all Those focus track modes that dji has had On the previous larger drones we now Have that on something this tiny the Mini three pro huge thanks to our Sponsor of this video adorama if you Guys want to see a lot more dji mini 3 Pro videos make sure you guys check the Links above as well as down below in the Video description i have a full playlist Of all the stuff all the details on this Drone this is aldrin estacio with Flightpath.com i'll see you guys in the Next video take care [Music] [Music] You
