If your a new drone pilot and have just purchased the brand new DJI Mavic Air 2 you might have noticed a gimbal setting called “Follow” and “FPV” mode in the settings. I get asked this question quite a bit and thought I would make a video explaining it as well as a demonstration of the differences in action. The most common mode is “Follow” mode and is what you will want to primarily use when capturing smooth cinematic footage. In this mode, all 3 axes of the gimbal are fully functional and attempting to keep your footage stable on both the pan, tilt and roll axis.
When you enable FPV gimbal mode it essentially locks the roll axis and when performing some maneuvers the horizon will tilt to match the angle of the drone. This mode can give you a more realistic sense of flight and is quite commonly used with goggles. Although the DJI goggles are not currently fully compatible with the DJI Mavic Air 2 it is still can be useful for getting some interesting dynamic footage to blend in with your drone footage edits, something definitely worth trying out. Watch our video for a full demonstration of the FPV gimbal mode on the Mavic Air 2 in action.
