    Sorry if I missed this answer.

    Have not had a ton of fly time with my drone yet due to scheduling.

    Are you referring to walking toward the Mavic as it flies backwards?

    If you enable the "Visual Navigation Settings" --> "Enable Backward Flying" setting in DJI GO, the Mavic will move away as the target moves toward it. You'll have to watch out for any obstacles behind the Mavic since it has no sensors behind it. Also, it won't really be following the target -- just backing away to keep the target in view.

    It'll automatically stay at the distance required to keep the subject in the frame. There is no way to preset the distance.
