What mobile device do you have, and is it actively updating its position using GPS??? It's actually the mobile device that you are using to run Go4 that should be providing the positional location for the controller.Thanks. Anyone else. Mine is not auto-updating the home point?
I have the latest DJI 4 and firmware.
OK - an unusual set-up ... The lack of Internet connectivity in the iPhone 6 should not be a bother, but you do need to confirm that you have GPS connection in the device that's connected to the controller (i.e. the iPhone 6) ... It sounds like something unusual is happening in that combination, because otherwise, this is standard stuff! Is there any way that you can try this using Go4 loaded on your iPhone XS instead, and see if by just using the one device, things happen differently??Thanks for helping. I use a dedicated iPhone 6s without a SIM for the drone and it is connected via WiFi to the Hotspot on my primary iPhone XS phone (with a SIM and cellular coverage) at the flight site.
It is not actively updating my location. I have to constantly press my location button to make sure the RTH is near me.
And that is where my confusion lies. It automatically tracks BUT does it automatically reset the home point continuously? Or do you have to periodically manually reset it and then again and again. I just looked through the manual and can't find the proper reference.I some cases you want your RTH to stay constant. But if you are moving and being followed by the drone in active track (which is often the case), you want the RTH to be where you are when you initiate it. My problem is the RTH is not dynamically moving with me. I have to manually updated it.
I looked at the video earlier. I think there are two options. One can set the home point where the drone is now flying. So if the drone is flying from A to D but is now over B, you can set it to B. I guess you might notice it is a nice safe flat spot and select it as a good intermediary landing spot. Again, as you progress, you might decide C further along is now a good landing spot and chose that. But I don't think the drone/controller does any of this automatically.i am also confused, so, may i ask directly? if you start from a boat, and then your boat, well, moves - what exactly should be done so your drone would do RTH to the _moving_ boat where you and your controller are?
as what is my question - in the video it has this quite an important remark - once you hit RTH it goes to the point where you wee when button was pressed. so, i presume, if you are on the moving boat - it will do RTH into the water, as you will keep moving?
This scenario is interesting ... If you set the home point as the controller, then the Controller will continually update the home-point. I believe it does it in 5 or 6 metre steps, it's not a real-time track. However, if you hit the RTH button, you'll get a message in Go4 advising you that the Home Point has changed, and asking you to confirm that you want it to use the currrent controller location. When you do that confirmation, that's the point the Mavic will use to go to (i.e. the GPS co-ordinates provided by the mobile phone/tablet running Go4). If you are still moving after you press RTH and do the confirmation, then - yes - you will leave the drone behind, and if you are motoring along on water, then your Mavic will get very wet!I looked at the video earlier.

Again, as you progress, you might decide C further along is now a good landing spot and chose that. But I don't think the drone/controller does any of this automatically.
OR you can select where the controller is now located. Now you are free flying over your boat. You can select to "return to controller" and it will head on in toward you. I THINK that once you select this it will keep following the controller but I'm not entirely sure. But I'm not sure that trying to land on a small moving boat will be a great idea. A passenger ship would provide a larger area and I have no idea how fast it can follow a moving boat while trying to land.
And, I could have this totally fouled up so I certainly welcome corrections to my understanding.
