We are excited to announce that a new Mode will be included with the 2.1 release at the end of this month: Cruise Mode. It may be easier to explain by example, where each example has a short description, and then a screenshot showing the controls in Cruise Mode that will accomplish the described behavior. Example 1: Focus-like Behavior for Phantom 3 While Autopilot can pitch and yaw the gimbal in Focus Mode on the Inspire, this doesn't help keep the Focus Subject center framed for Phantom users. Cruise Mode can now allow you to still fly the aircraft with the RC joysticks (altitude, pitch, and roll), while it handles the yaw and gimbal pitch. Example 2: Long Distance Flight Do a long distance run without cramping your thumbs. Fly due north as fast as you can at 200ft. Fly back to the Focus Subject (operator) as fast as you can: Example 3: Smooth, Straight Descent Execute a perfectly straight flight path due east at 20 mph while slightly descending. Control the aircraft yaw (or gimbal yaw on the Inspire) and gimbal pitch by using the right RC joystick to manually set the video framing during the flight. Example 4: Complex Maneuver Execute an ascending corkscrew maneuver to record a long-exposure still photo at night with glowsticks. Example 5: Panorama Execute a constant panning motion at 100ft while continuous photos is enabled.
