I think your drone capabilities are way above mine. Haven't pushed the Mini 3 to the limit yet but yes it is prone to loosing sight as you mentioned. At least it stops at that point rather than crashing into whatever is blocking it....Awesome. Have you tried the Focus/Auto Track features out yet? I’ve been hesitant in upgrading to the 3 as I’ve heard that once Active Track loses sight of the framed subject the connection gets lost. eg. – walking under trees or behind structures (at higher elevations) whereas follow me mode with the mini 2 using the Litchi App relies on the signal from the controller. I may wait until a Litchi compatible model 3 is available and that won’t happen until DJI releases the SDK (software development kit) for the mini 3 which might be sooner that later. Did you opt for the RC with the built in screen?
