The DJI Mini 2 is an awesome little drone that is featherlight but as a result, lacks some noticeable features found on other DJI drones such as obstacle avoidance and DJI’s ActiveTrack. However, if you use the QuickShots on the DJI Mini 2, you can actually trick the drone into actively tracking you.
How to get ActiveTrack on your DJI Mini 2 drone
DC Rainmaker explains in a detailed video on Youtube how you can trick the DJI Mini 2 into actively tracking you by using the DJI QuickShots features. Now, this is not a method that will guarantee success as there are quite a few misses, but some of the shots do come out very well indeed. Take a look at this shot for instance.
The simpler QuickShots such as the circle are easiest to use to get an ActiveTrack-like shot. The more complex movements, like the Helix and the Boomerang, are much more difficult to pull off.
