Greetings to all from a new complete novice. This looks like the place to be!

So I bought a P3S, and have been trying to teach myself, and also my wife, who surprised me by being interested.

We have been working through all 5 intelligent flight modes. All perform as advertised, except "follow me".

What we're doing:

1. Move S1 switch to MFM position (down).

2. Touch MFM drone logo on phone (iPhone 7).

3. Touch Follow Me mode.

4. Raise altitude of drone until able to engage, then touch APPLY. Afterward, touch HIDE.

Here's where I'm confused. The videos I've watched show a screen asking you to select follow position, or origin. I'm not getting that screen. After touching APPLY, as above, follow me shows active, with a red X on screen to stop mode.

When I start walking around, the drone stays stationary in hover. I've walked away for 75 meters, or so, but nothing happens.

What am I doing wrong?

Edited Addition

After reading some more, I checked the "flight log" on the DJI GO app.

The log shows "Follow Me Mode Enabled".

So it seems like I'm engaging follow me, but I don't know how to use it.

I know how to set the altitude, but how do you set the offset (azimuth and distance from target) ?
