Join Jim Heid for an in-depth discussion in this video Flight modes: Course Lock and Home Lock, part of DJI Mavic Pro: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
- Next, we're going to check out the course lock…and home lock intelligent flight modes.…Both are useful for a lot of video shooting tasks,…especially course lock.…Let's check them out.…Course lock is a set of railroad tracks in the sky.…It lets you lock the direction of the drone…while being able to change its yaw.…Normally when you make a yaw adjustment with the left stick,…the drone changes course accordingly,…curving to the left or the right for example.…Course lock changes that.…When it's active, the drone continues straight…even when you make a yaw adjustment.…
This makes it easier to do camera moves…where the drone is doing a slow rotate…as it flies past something.…We're airborne now and first,…let's just do a yaw movement to show that yes,…the drone changes course accordingly.…You can see this on the map and in the little compass radar.…Now, I'll activate course lock and do a similar yaw move.…There's that railroad track in the sky.…The drone is yawing.…It's rotating but it's still on its original heading.…
