The camera pitch controller allows precise camera angle control while on-the-go, using a mobile device, with up to a 6.4-inch display.
  • Follow Me: When Follow Me is enabled, the aircraft is leashed to the pilot, who is controlling the ST10+ location. With this feature, flying and capturing video following the pilot is easy, flexible and intuitive.
  • Watch Me: When Watch Me is enabled, the 4K camera stays pointed at the pilot, holding the ST10+, in focus and in frame, no matter which way the drone is maneuvered.
  • Dynamic Return Home: Switch to Home Mode, and the Typhoon will fly back towards the location of the pilot holding the ST10+, and will automatically land within 13 to 26 feet (4 to 8 meters) of the pilot.
