Using the Point of Interest Mode on the Dji Mavic 2 Pro.

The Dji Mavic 2 Pro has a host of awesome features to play within its Intelligent Flight Mode Section including Point of Interest mode or POI. It’s an awesome feature that enables smooth, cinematic footage to be shot with just a few taps of the screen and with just a few practices, you can really develop the quality of your aerial footage with some great new looks.

So how do you use Drone Point of Interest Mode. Follow the steps below and you should find that POI works with very little problems.

Open the intelligent flight mode menu and select “Point of Interest on the screen”.

Tap GO. The drone will proceed to take a measurement with a radius from the centre of your chosen interest point. IT’S IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT CONTROL AND FLY  THE DRONE DURING SUBJECT CALCULATION. Once everything is set, you can make any adjustments in relation to the route, distance from subject, height and sped per metre  either directly on the screen (I’m using the Dji Smart Controller)  or using the app or with control sticks. The Flight parameters can be set whilst the drone is conducting an automated orbit route.

I would strongly suggest that before undertaking any commercial drone assignments using POI, it’s a good idea to test out the Point of Interest flight mode in an unobstructed open space to ensure that you are comfortable with the settings. The following video footage is a quick example of Point of Interest and shows movement mid flight using the Dji Smart Controller screen to make any adjustments.
