I have the Mavic 3 but have never used a bike for tracking. So this was very eye opening for me, it did an amazing job. And that crazy flying around on its own may have been partially caused by the obstacle avoid system being to aggressive. Great video Stuart, and thanks for sharing.

Very nice Active track review. DJI needs to fix the bugs in the algorithm and it will be much more Skydio perfect, They also need to have a hybrid tracking with visual and GPS tracking in order to be perfect and in some cases to give priority firstly in saving itself of not crashing and after in case of losing the target visually then to use the GPS to come near the target again and follow visually again. A beacon will make a huge difference.

Glad I'm not the only one seeing this! I tried my Mavic 3 with the latest firmware update and I was skiing in wide open trails and the thing was going crazy just like this! It was flying all around me and in and out and eventually losing me, not an obstruction within 50 feet of me either haha.

I have been saying for a while my Mavic 3's camera is AWESOME but the airframe is far from that... it flies "like a drunken mosquito" as another YouTuber said and that describes it perfectly. DJI has work to do and hopefully soon. Great review! Lots of good thoughts here. Cheers! Chuck of Kovaction

Excellent tracking features. Can’t really fault the drone for stopping inside the tree canopy. Rather safe than sorry!! 👍😎🇳🇿

ActiveTrack technology is mindblowing. It has come a long way and now with the ActiveTrack 5.0 I’m very impressed with how much it has improved.

What an absolute thrill to fly the Mavic 3. Very powerful drone!

Great review - I did find in my review when riding a motorbike and tracking, the obstacle avoidance struggles at speeds above 30-40km/h and like you said - when you’re standing still or just taking off it seems to struggle to find out where it is in relation to the subject. I also don’t mind the weaving in and out of trees but I did find in my tests it did lose me more often than not and didn’t regain tracking even at lower speeds. All in all I think you’re right here’s some rough edges but it’s mostly good steps forward! Great videos keep them up, I love the detail you get into 🤙🏻

I for one greatly appreciate all the people that bought the Mavic 3 and are beta-testing it for those of us who are waiting for the Mavic 3 Platinum.

I had my first crash on my first day of trying today.... and I had it just circle next to a wood. had the avoidance on.... luckily the drone survived. I just had to exchange 2 propellars. If this works so great for you, I dont know what the issue was for me. I hope my drone is not faulty. maybe it works better if on autotrack and not circling?

You were fairly prophetic predicting the "brave" mode considering the recent release of Active Track "Nifty" mode.

Stuart, this is illustrious news! DJI is chasing Skydio! Suggest test: See if obstacle avoidance works if Alina is standing on trail pretending to be tree. 😳

I have a question: Can active tract 5.0 track a moving object from the front of the object (not from the back)?

Looks incredible. You said it’s limited to 4K but is that also limited to 24/25/30p ?

I was riding through some oak trees in Southern California and it made contact with the leaves, but thankfully did not crash. I posted a short about it last week, it was nuts to see my M3 Cine nearly collide with a tree. It almost seemed to accelerate towards it too. I had the same experience as you, with the frantic movement. It accelerates so fast when it finds a path and was hauling ass when it almost hit. But to its credit, it did stop. My first Cine was taken out by a Falcon hired to scare birds away from the field near my paid shoot, it flew away from the farm and into a residential area to check out my drone. Attacked it, thank God it landed near me but would never take off again.....

When it’s so good it can get scary. LOL I’m amazed by this drone’s capabilities.

looks like they have done a good job , as you said its more about a cinematic shot then dodging trees thats more fpv skydio territory . What's the low light performance for it and how is the stability for long exposures ?

I used my Mavic 3 in my own 10 acre field last week which is an empty field with short grass and no obstructions at all and has oak tree’s on all 4 sides at the edges only. I was testing active track whilst riding my bike around my field (not near the edges) and asked the drone to film me from my left side. It was all over the place!!!! And after about 10 mins it went so far away from me and crashed into a huge oak tree at the side of the field and got stuck. The drone is now written off having fallen out of the tree. I have only had it 3 months. Is DJI liable? Should I be entitled to my money back or not?? Your advise would be appreciated 👍🏼
