10. Potensic T35

potensic-t35_with_transmitter

Potensic T35. Cheap drone that follows you.

We’re starting the list off at number 10 where we have a cheap all-rounder, Potensic T35. The base package doesn’t cost much, around $150, but it’s often on sale for less than that. By the end of this short overview, I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say Potensic T35 is a great cheap solution for a follow me drone!

Cheapest follow me drone

In all honesty, you can’t find a decent camera at this price point. Even though the drone tech has significantly advanced over the course of the last two years or so, and even though we now have GPS-powered drones at incredibly affordable prices, the camera department is still slugging behind. Potensic T35 does feature a solid 1080p wide-angle camera, but it’s the vibration that’s killing the footage. And Potesnic T35 is not the only one, vibration and jello are still the teething issues drone industry is battling with.

Needless to say, Potensic T35 comes with the infamous follow me feature. After all, it wouldn’t be here if FM wasn’t present. In addition to following you around, Potensic T35 also sports a dual GPS module, ensuring stable flight and failsafe features like auto return to home.

Specifications

You won’t be able to reach too far with this little bugger. Even though we’re talking about a pretty bulky drone here, it does come at an affordable price tag so I guess price cuts had to be made in the range department. We’re looking at roughly 200 to 300 meters, and even that requires a clear line of sight. Battery duration is fairly good, though, averaging around 14 minutes. If you really need a drone that can follow you around and you’re on a tight budget, Potensic T35 will do, but only just!

 

 

9. Holy Stone HS120D

Holy Stone HS120D with Transmitter

Holy Stone HS120D. Cheap drone that follows you.

Holy Stone HS120D is the next follow me drone we’ll be talking about here on our Top 10 drones that follow you list. Design-wise, it’s very similar to Potensic T35/Holy Stone HS100, but has some differences that set it apart. It’s a fairly cheap drone too, often available for under $140. With its cute design, responsive controls, and solid FPV range, HS120D won’t disappoint you.

Camera and Features

Let’s get the important stuff out of our way first! Yes, Holy Stone HS120D sports both GPS and follow me, meaning it has excellent following accuracy. For the price tag, at least. You can’t expect to go too fast, or make excessive directional changes (i.e. running back and forth in and out of the drone’s FOV), otherwise, it will lose track of you and that’s about it.

Photography-wise, Holy Stone HS120 features a simple 1080p camera that does well in terms of still images but underperforms in the drone follow me video department. As usual, vibration is the main culprit, and Holy Stone HS120D doesn’t have the ability to dampen it.

Specifications

The range is a bit problematic with this one. As you’ll come to see, most follow me drones possess far greater range than 300ish meters, which is what you can expect from HS120D. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to belittle this little bugger, and if we take the price tag into consideration, the range is reasonable, to say the least. On the bright side, the battery duration is around the 18-minute mark, which is just enough to get your daily dose of drone flying.

 

 

8. Ruko F11

ruko-f11_with-transmitter

Ruko F11. 10 Best drones that follow you.

Ruko F11 is the eighth drone on our list of the best follow me drones out there. And, even though it’s pricier than the two aforementioned models, the performance it brings to the table is worth every penny. Here’s why:

Camera and Features

For starters, this self following drone features a 4K camera. 4K for still images that look outright awesome. Heck, you can even vertically rotate it via the dedicated controller. However, the footage goes up to 2.7K and isn’t too smooth nor crisp. As stated above, this is nothing but a teething issue, and you won’t have luck with any other similarly-priced drone unless you up your budget and go with something that has proper hardware image stabilization.

Gesture controls, headless mode, GPS altitude hold, and point of interest are some of the most heavily marketed features of the Ruko F11. However, what I like the most about this bugger is the fact it comes with an extra battery as well as a carrying case. If that’s not a good deal, then I’m not sure what qualifies as one…

Specifications

If you didn’t like the range of the two above-featured drones and you’re looking for something that can go a bit further without crashing your finances, then Ruko F11 is the obvious way to go! This little bugger has 500 meters of range, like the two aforementioned models combined. And that’s FPV range, too – the operating range exceeds 1 kilometer, enabling you to go on all sorts of missions with your 4K-ready Ruko F11! The battery life isn’t half bad too, reaching 25+ minutes with ease.

 

 

7. Holy Stone HS700D

holy-stone-hs700-with-transmitter

Drone Follow Me Mode

Let’s check out Holy Stone HS700D follow me drone now. It’s a pretty hefty drone here, not to be mistaken with its foldable brother, Holy Stone HS720. They’re pretty similar, though, as they both come with excellent sets of features and great overall quality. So, let’s get our props running and check this little bugger out!

Camera and Features

The camera isn’t the greatest of the bunch, here, especially considering the quality of Zino and drones below it. Still, for less than $300, Holy stone HS700D offers a solid all-around look and 2K resolution. Need I remind you again – 2K is just a slightly wider 1080p. Remember that and don’t get fooled!

Moving to the features, HS700D’s brushless motors mean this bad boy is up to no good. They’re fast, durable, and don’t make much noise. Much durable than brushed motors, mind you, which is a huge plus for HS700D. In addition to follow me, this bugger also has GPS, return to home, and most importantly (beginners-wise), altitude hold.

Specifications

22 minutes is the marketed flight time of Holy Stone HS700D. However, that’s a bit exaggerated. I’ve been flying this bad boy for a few days already and it’s constantly going under the 20-minute mark. Close, but under! I have no bad remarks about the range, though, sweeping in at around 800 meters, and 500m for FPV. Overall, HS700D is another decent package in  Holy Stone’s lineup of budget drones.

 

 

6. Potensic D85

potensic-d85_with_transmitter

Potensic D85 is a pretty looking drone. It’s very easy on the eye thanks to its gray/black color scheme and overall aggressive-looking appearance. There’s a lot of rough edges, and it all looks quite nice together. The build quality is at an exceptional level too, and you’ll be able to find a ton of spare parts too.

Camera and Features

Potensic D85 doesn’t just sports GPS but GLONASS too. These two positioning systems ensure smooth flying, impeccable responsiveness, and impeccable accuracy. Furthermore, it also features beefy 1500Kv brushless motors, which are both quiet and fast. Additionally, the D85 features 5G Wifi FPV with a pretty lengthy range, as well as auto return to home which ought to save your butt in time of need.

The provided 2K camera is okay. But okay at best – it won’t blow you away or create superb aerial photography. On the bright side, I’ve seen people mount their GoPros on this bugger. Especially Sessions, which aren’t too heavy but still feature much better image quality and software stabilization.

Specifications

If you want long-range drones with Follow Me, but you don’t want to overspend, then Potensic D85 is the drone for you! With up to 1.5 km of operating range, this nimble flyer won’t disappoint you, that’s for sure! Add to that cca 20 minutes of flight time and you got yourself a screamer. And just look at that price tag. I mean, come on…

 

 

5. Hubsan Zino Pro

Hubsan Zino with Transmitter

Affordable drone that follows you.

Lately, Hubsan has slowed down a bit. At the moment, they only have one proper drone to show off, and that would be their newest foldable platform, Zino. Yes, we know ZIno 2 is out there, but it’s still not available on Amazon and Hubsan’s shop is sold out, meaning no one can get their hands on it right now. So, at least for the moment, Hubsan Zino (and Zino Pro) will have to represent Hubsan in our Top 10 drones that follow you article.

Camera and Features

Zino Pro is the first-ever foldable Hubsan drone to feature proper hardware stabilization. Better yet, it’s the first-ever foldable Hubsan drone that features a 4K camera. ND filters are there too, alongside a bunch of photography-based features that make Hubsan Zino Pro a viable business drone.

In addition to follow me, Zino also supports stuff like GPS & GLONASS, panorama, image tracking, RTH, failsafe and more. Hubsan Zino Pro is a feature-packed model, just like the majority of its direct competitors. However, thanks to dual positioning systems and a polished app, I dare to say Hubsan Zino Pro is the most accurate of the bunch!

Specifications

Hubsan Zino pro is a beast in the specs department too. With around 4km of range and 22ish minutes of flight time, we’re looking at a very capable little bugger here. I know, DJI Mavic Mini can fly 8 minutes longer, but it can’t shoot in 4K, and doesn’t have object tracking. Keep that in mind when making your final decision on which follow me drone to buy!

 

 

4. Parrot Anafi

parrot-anafi-with-transmitter

Parrot Anafi. Drones that follow you.

Parrot Anafi is next self following drone we’ll talk about, marking the fourth place on our list of the best follow me drones available on Amazon. It’s a high-end drone, this one, packing all sorts of features and some state-of-the-art hardware inside. So, let’s take a closer look and see what separates it from all other drones out there!

Camera and Features

The camera! The camera is what separates Parrot Anafi from all of its competitors. And it’s not because of the crystal clear 4K resolution nor HDR recording capability. Nope! There are drones that feature both of that. The sensor itself is nothing special. Don’t get me wrong, Parrot Anafi bears one of the best drone cameras out there, but it’s not the special part here.

What’s special is its ability to rotate 180 degrees vertically, allowing for both straight down and straight-up shots. Yep, you’ve read that right! As far as features go, Parrot Anafi is a heavy hitter, featuring everything from GPS, failsafe, altitude hold, follow me (duh), return to home, and numerous advanced modes for aerial photography enthusiasts.

Specifications

Specs-wise, Anafi is not too bad and can go toe to toe with most other similarly priced drones. However, people who want their drones to last close to half an hour won’t be too happy with this one. Parrot Anafi gets around 20 minutes in the air, but only just. It’s good and goes in line with other listings, but I really hoped for more. Range-wise, Anafi is capable of reaching 4 kilometers which is sort of like the industry-standard these days.

 

 

3. DJI Mavic Air

DJI Mavic Air With Transmitter

DJI Mavic Air – Drone that follows you.

DJI Mavic Air is the second foldable DJI device that came out after the original Mavic Pro. It comes at a lower price tag yet offers more or less the same functionality as its big brother. In other words, when it comes to price/performance, DJI Mavic Air is right up there with the best of them. There are no compromises in this package, and I’m sure you’ll notice it by the end of this short overview.

Camera and Features

Even though DJI Mavic Air is smaller than the original Mavic Pro, they basically have the same set of features. Obstacle avoidance sensors are here too, both on front and in the back. They’re pretty accurate and will get your drone out of trouble in most occasions. On top of that, DJI Mavic Air is also foldable, has GPS, object tracking, and a plethora of DJI Go features that’ll help you make a name for yourself with awesome aerial selfies.

Don’t get me started on this camera. For the price the base Mavic Air goes for, you can’t really get a better camera. This thing features 3-axis stabilization and is capable of shooting 4K footage. Dronies, orbiting, asteroid (FRIGGIN AWESOME), and even HDR – this camera supports it all, and makes DJI Mavic Air one of the best price/performances follow me drones on the market.

Specifications

Unfortunately, DJI Mavic Air’s biggest downside is its specs sheet. It’s not terrible, but it is significantly inferior to the likes of Mavic Pro and Mavic Mini. The Air can reach up to 4 kilometers and fly for around 20ish minutes. Yes, the Fly More Combo does get you two extra batteries which means a full hour of flying right out of the box, but I’d still love to see battery life improvements with the DJI Mavic 2 Air!

 

 

2. Autel Robotics EVO

Autel Robotics EVO with Transmitter

Foldable drones that follow you.

The second-best follow me drone you can buy right now is the famous Autel Robotics EVO. This orange badass excels in every department, delivering professionally-viable performance at an aggressive price tag. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll still have to pay upwards of $1000 for the package, but at least you’ll get a whole bunch of accessories, including extra batteries to improve already excellent flight times.

Camera and Features

Autel Robotics EVO packs quite the punch in the camera department. Yep, in other words, this birdie can shoot fluid 4K videos thanks to its beefy camera and sophisticated 3-axis gimbal stabilization solution. It’s the perfect mixture, creating a very usable camera no matter the type of use you put EVO up against.

The feature set is absurdly good. Autel Robotics EVO basically offers everything all other high-end models offer. It’s basically nitpicking at this point since Autel Robotics EVO sports awesome stuff like orbiting, viewpoint, waypoints, dynamic tracking, and offers full VR headset support.

Specifications

Specifications are coming right up. Starting off with the flight time, Autel Robotics EVO sports a hefty but highly optimized battery which can endure close to half an hour on a full charge. That’s right up there with the best follow me drone – DJI Mavic 2 Pro. The same goes for the range, which caps out at around 7 kilometers. Let’s be realistic, when will you need more than 7 kilometers of range, really?

 

 

1. DJI Mavic 2 Pro

dji-mavic-2-pro-with-transmitter

Drone that automatically follows you.

If you’re looking for the best follow me drones money can buy, this here model definitely tops the list. As you can see, we’re referring to DJI Mavic 2 Pro, the all-new successor of the original Mavic Pro that’s coming in with an even greater force underneath its hood.

Camera and Features

DJI Mavic 2 Pro comes with the standard DJI feature set, including all the most popular DJI Go features. We’re talking impeccable GPS accuracy, omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, image tracking, and so many smart flight modes and features, it will make your head spin.

The camera will sweep you off your feet too. Hasselblad is to thank here, they’ve done an amazing job, creating one of the best 4K cameras ever seen on drones. Whether you’re looking for a drone that can be used in industrial, outdoor sports(ish), or plain casual scenarios, DJI Mavic Mavic 2 Pro has the versatility and feature set you’ll need!

The best self following drone

The specs of this drone that follows you are a slight upgrade over the original version. We’re looking at roughly 30ish minutes of flight time, providing 5ish extra minutes. Not much, but does stand for something, especially for folk needing to go through several batteries per day. Range-wise, DJI’s Lightbridge technology keeps getting improved, allowing DJI Mavic 2 Pro up to 8 kilometers of range. That’s roughly a kilometer more than the original Mavic Pro, but in urban areas with a ton of interference, I doubt you’ll even notice the difference.

FAQ: Best Follow Me Drones

 

What does the Drone Follow Me function mean?

I suppose there is no real need to explain this feature since it is pretty much self-explanatory… but then what the heck, I might as well write a couple of informative sentences about drone that follows you.

As the name implies, the Follow Me feature basically allows your drone to follow you around. Of course, this doesn’t have to always be “you” – you can order your drone to control other people or objects as well. Depending on the model you have/will buy, you might also get extra adjustments such as setting your desired altitude, flying speed and various other parameters.

In addition to all that, some models also have several subfeatures based on Follow Me. Thes are, in most cases, variations of the basic feature that incorporate preset settings from the feature itself. Here’s a couple of them so you know what exactly am I talking about:

  1. TapFly
    Set the desired location by tapping on the screen and your drone will follow the path you chose.
  2. Terrain Follow
    Recognition software will learn the surrounding terrain and keep the height level by following the terrain both uphill and downhill.
  3. Trace
    Pretty straightforward – the drone will keep the subject in focus while flying around it.
  4. Spotlight
    The drone will circle around the target, flying either in front or behind it.
  5. Profile
    The drone will fly directly alongside its target.

 

How does the Drone Follow Me function work?

THE WAY FOLLOW ME DRONES WORK

Drones that follow you rely on a dedicated technology that turns your drone into a smart device and makes it act as your own camera crew. Up until the latest DJI’s flagships (Mavic Pro, Inspire 2 and Phantom 4) we only had one type of Follow Me technology. It is powered by GSC and GPS transmitter systems that work together allowing the drone to follow the control around and keep it in the camera focus.

The second technology is DJI’s ActiveTrack. Like we have already mentioned above, it is used by the newest DJI models. Relying solely on facial and object recognition software, ActiveTrack is able to pinpoint your exact location at all times and smoothly follow you around everywhere you go.

GPS/GSC TECHNOLOGY

This technology is pretty straightforward. It relies on a connection between the drone and its dedicated GPS enabled device. In most cases, that device is either GSC (ground station controller) or a phone. Ideally, when the Follow Me function is turned on, the drone follows the GSC or phone everywhere it goes, making sure it stays in the camera focus at all given times. This technology has several different following styles, varying from hovering, circling around the subject, following it in a straight line and much more. These sub-features depend from drone to drone.

RECOGNITION SOFTWARE

Latest in the line of DJI’s flagship models rely on the special recognition software called ActiveTrack. It basically enables the drone that follows you to recognize certain people or objects and follow them around with the camera being focused solely on them. This is done by a series of algorithms and a test flight around the desired subject so that the software can learn its shape and outer appearance from all sides. ActiveTrack does not require GPS or any other technologies and is currently available only on the newest installments of DJI drones.

Are any of these auto-follow drones waterproof?

Waterproof drones that follow you?

Unfortunately, none of the drones listed below are waterproof. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t survive a couple of raindrops here and there. Keep in mind though, flying in rain might be safe… but if something goes wrong your warranty won’t be valid.

One more thing that I’d like to add – if you are looking for water-resistant or waterproof solutions, you might want to take a closer look at AirDog ADII. Even though the drone itself is in no way waterproof, the controller (AirLeash) is. This means you can go surfing, kiteboarding or do any other water sport all while controlling your drone and not worrying about any water damage.

 

What is the fastest Follow Me drone?

If speed is your top priority then you should look no further than the AirDog ADII. As you will have the chance to see down below in the thorough explanation, AirDog ADII is an auto-follow drone specialized for fast-paced outdoor activities. With that said, it comes as no surprise to see it clocking in at approximately 45mph (slightly above 70km/h).

On the other hand, if you are a professional filmmaker in desperate need for a speedy aerial platform, take a closer look at DJI Inspire 2 which can go as fast as 58mph (almost 100km/h).

What is the average flight time of these self following drones?

Battery life in the average drone that automatically follows you

This heavily depends on the type of drone you are going to get. There are selfie drones with follow me mode, there are professional aerial platforms… there are flagship drones with follow me mode and then there are dirt cheap ones. With all that in mind, we come to the conclusion that finding the unique average flight time of these drones is not an option. That’s why I’ve set up 2 subtypes to make your life easier.

Mini auto-follow drones – 12 minutes

Commercial Auto follow drones – 25 minutes

 

Is there any cheap drone that follows you?

Most people think that smart auto-follow drones cost way more than they actually do. Let me rephrase that, people are convinced anything below $500 is considered a toy drone. Well, if you know anything about the drone industry than I’m sure you already know that those people are greatly mistaken.

All that leads us to a simple answer to the above-stated question – yes, there are several cheap Follow Me drones that could sweep you off your feet. As a matter of fact, there’s a small list of cheap drones that follow you down below.

 

Can these drones avoid obstacles while flying?
Believe it or not, this is one of the most common questions related to following me modes… and luckily, the answer is yes. Well, for some drones at least. You see, in order for your drone to follow you while avoiding obstacles, it needs to have some sort of a collision avoidance technology going on underneath its hud. However, this sort of technology comes at a high price which means you will only see it available in premium models. Take DJI Mavic Pro as the perfect example. It sports a highly intuitive Follow Me feature (it’s called ActiveTrack) as well as a comprehensive obstacle avoidance system. Combine that with adjustable flying settings and you’ll understand why Mavic Pro is such a popular Follow Me drone.
Can these drones follow me while I'm driving a car?
If you would like to record yourself driving a car, then I’m happy to tell you that all drones listed below are capable of doing just that. However, keep in mind that you cannot expect them to follow you at neck-breaking speeds. As a matter of fact, these drones can only follow you in a car at cruising speed. Come to think of it, I believe some manufacturers state the maximum speed their drones can follow in order to clear this question out as soon as possible.
Can these drones follow me in windy weather?

If we are talking about the normal windy weather and not hurricanes, then the answer is yes in most cases. Perhaps the smoothness and general quality of your drone’s flight path might not be ideal due to all that drifting caused by winds… but the drone would still be able to follow you.

Of course, I am referring to the normal-sized drone that follows you and not those miniature ones such as DJI Spark or Yuneec Breeze. While they are still able to battle their way through common wind, if they get up against anything stronger they’ll be swept aside and rendered unusably.

Can any of these drones automatically land on a boat?

Unfortunately, guys, I will have to disappoint you since the answer is no. Most (if not all) modern-day drones are still unable to automatically land on moving objects such as boats. With that said, if you happen to try this out on your own and you end up crashing your drone in the water, your warranty won’t cover the damage.

Explanation of different drone following modes

It was already explained above that AirDog ADII sport several modes in which it follows people or certain objects. Now, we are going to take a closer look at those and see how can users benefit from them!

 

Drones that follow you – Terminology explained

Fixed Follow

This subtype of Follow Me mode represents a fixed pattern in which the drone will follow you but retain your desired distance, angle and altitude. In other words, Fixed Follow will allow you to position the AirDog ADII to your liking and it will start following you around; and will do so without rotating on its x-axis. This means it will stay focused on you without changing its orientation. Fixed Follow is meant for wide open spaces without any obstacles nearby.

Here is a short video demonstration of this smart flight mode in action:

Hover and Aim

Hover and Aim is the default flight mode on AirDog ADII. The drone will go into this mode after each pause or after the initial takeoff. It is meant to be used in tight spaces and during scenarios in which the tracked object moves faster than AirDog ADII can fly, but is located in a relatively small area. When the drone is in Hover and Aim mode, it will be at a fixed position and altitude but will pan around the area and effectively adjust its camera to keep the tracked object within its frame. Needless to say, this mode is awesome for skateboarding, biking, parkour and other similar activities which possess fast moving objects in a small area.

Here is a short video demonstration of this smart flight mode in action:

Follow Line

If you want a linear approach to your handsfree aerial recordings, then AirDog ADII has the perfect solution for you. Meet Follow Line, a special submode of Follow Me which lets the drone focus on you while following a preset line. Prior to the initialization of this mode, you must select a line path (at least 2 points) and takeoff, it’s that easy! Of course, you can adjust the drone’s height in mid-air if you want some close ups on your action.

Here is a short video demonstration of this smart flight mode in action:

Adaptive Follow

If you are looking for smooth panoramic footage, then your obvious choice should be Adaptive Follow mode. What this does is it basically allows the drone to move relative to your movement. Prior to this, you will have to set a certain angle (for example, you can set it to fly in front of you) that your drone will then precisely follow. If you happen to change your direction during this mode, the drone will adapt to the situation and make a smooth transition around you.

Here is a short video demonstration of this smart flight mode in action:

Circle Around

This mode is pretty much self-explanatory. If you want your AirDog ADII to fly around you then this mode is the obvious way to go. By default, the drone will circle around you in a clockwise fashion and will do so at a steady speed. You can increase/decrease the speed with the left/right button on the AirLeash. Pressing the opposite directional button several times while in clockwise rotation will change it to counterclockwise. Keep in mind that you should not be moving faster than 25km/h if you want optimal results.

Here is a short video demonstration of this smart flight mode in action:

IS FOLLOW ME FEATURE VIABLE FOR SPORTS AND OTHER OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES?

Short answer – Yes! Drone that follows you is extremely viable for both sports and all sorts of outdoor recreation. You can even find specialized drones that come with smart features such as Follow Me and incorporate it in brand new ways that aren’t seen in conventional drones.

The best example of this is surely the AirDog. It comes with a special leash (AirLeash) that is used as a standalone controller. What’s so special about it is that the AirDog can be programmed to follow it around and, best of all, the AirLeash is waterproof and handsfree, allowing you to fully concentrate on your favorite extreme sports.

Most newer drones come with specialized features that are able to handle fast-paced activities and can be used for outdoor sports with ease. So, if you are that type of person and you would like something to capture your extreme moments with, then a drone with the Follow Me features seems like a no-brainer.

Does the follow mode on the Phantom work?

2

cool but way way to high priced plus no back up batterys on all of the if your in action you dont realy want to stop to save your drone ! 😉

3

is there any drone that can change it height by itself? i need it for snowboard, and i have been reading that they cant go downhill with you...

4

Here's article about drones for snowboarding : http://www.dronesglobe.com/guide/snowboarding/

5

I had the typhoon H and depending on what mode you are in, it will shift heights

6

What about the follow drone called "STAAKER"? Looks very nice!

7

The Lily is no more. I just got notice that the company is closing its doors and refunding all pre-orders. I just got my refund initiated today. I don't want my money back, I want the waterproof following drone that I've been waiting over a year and a half for (I paid in July-2015 if I recall correctly).

On that note, there doesn't seem to be any other waterproof drones that follow. I want one I can take whitewater kayaking with me.

8

Feel free to count the number of blades on the Typhoon H again though. I'll give a hint - it's not eight. A couple on here are neat to see. Interesting how there are plenty of other ones on there (the Yuneec 4k for example, which is in the middle range of some of these in price). But some of the lower end ones are nice to know, for times when you might not want to outlay that kinda money for an upper-end model.

Good one sir! Looks like we skipped few math classes 🙁

I'll edit it in a moment, sorry for mistake 🙂
