No but I really didn't expect it to be 20 min. The flights were chasing a motorcycle around and the speeds were anywhere from 20-33mph almost the entire time. My other drone also takes a significant battery life hit when it's doing the same thing. Each flight was probably 5 or 6 miles. I'm working on some video now that I'll post up. I have a great follow drone with no avoidance that's my only comparison and all I can say is this one is a game changer in that regard.So, confirm please. Fly time is 20 minutes?
Yeah the weird thing for me was that the other person that it locked on to almost immediately changed direction and then it took off after them and stayed with them for what may only have been a minute but felt like too long and allowed the Beacon to get a nontrivial distance away - it dropped me to establish a visual lock on the wrong person (with a shape that bore zero resemblance to me) where you would think it should be checking often against the GPS of the Beacon and therefore have noticed that the Beacon was nowhere near what it had locked onto but rather continuing on the prior trajectory. Hopefully they will update the software to do this or do it more quickly/regularly, I can see someone totally freaking out if someone else’s drone starts following them out of the blue and could also see the drone getting itself in trouble if it stops following a subject and starts following someone else going into a place that could be hazardous (e.g., a bridge with crossing cables...).I've run about the same amount of flights. No flyaways but I did have the camera lock on to a different subject twice. They were along with me so it wasn't a big deal in that situation. It seems to default to visual with gps as the backup. When I've been alone the tracking has been perfect.
