OK here's the thing. I want to get a shot in an empty hotel ballroom. This room is about 100 feet long and 60 feet wide and 20 feet to the ceiling. My intention is to fly along a long wall, while focusing on the subject at the middle of the other long wall. So then I will be flying sideways the whole time. There's no satellites at all - no windows. I will fly in F mode, which will show "P- ATTI" anyway for lack of satellites. I WANT to use course lock but am not sure how the RC will respond. I understand that the craft needs to be 20 meters away for course lock to become available in F mode. That's more than halfway across the room. WILL IT WORK? Will I get to use CL?

I can definitely use some advice about the best practice here.

I can use DJI Go or Litchi.

If I understand it correctly, course lock uses satellites to control its direction, so neither app will function as you require. (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong).

Edit: I stand corrected....see post below.:oops:
