    Does ground station have any type of "follow me" function where, thru the data link, it moves based on your iPads movement like this other drone does:

    Would be really functional if it could follow perfectly in front of or behind while doing some solo clips like riding a bike or running with my dogs.

    Nope, it would be kind of cool though. You could do that with camera tracking on the AR Drone.

    The issue with the follow me is that you will need your base station to have GPS signal. I think only the iPads with cell signal have GPS in them. I could also see how it may not go quite as you plan. For example if you are on a motorcycle and want it to follow you from behind by 20 feet and 20 feet, what happens when you go through an intersection and phantom meet the stop light?
