    I think I am going to give up trying to use the follow me mode with the Breeze. I have yet to be able to get the breeze to move in follow me. I have been able to get it to turn to keep me in view. Today I tried follow me again and after a few seconds I got a geo fence warning even though I was only 15ft. away from breeze. After I got out of follow me I went into pilot and had the same issue with the geo fence kicking in at 15 or so ft. The weird thing is that it would let the breeze move away from me but not come closer. I landed the breeze turned it off and then tried again. In pilot mode it worked perfectly, then I went to follow me and the same problem occurred, I then switched back to pilot mode and I got the same geo fence warning. After then shutting down and starting back up and only using pilot mode, it worked perfectly. This is definitely frustrating, as the follow me mode is a big part of why I got the breeze.

    Yesterday at the park I had a very similar experience. I didn't realize it was the follow me mode that caused the GEO fence to kick in. Problem went away when I changed battery packs so that fits with your analysis. It looks like the firmware wants to keep the Breeze away from you, i.e. not follow too close, but it doesn't yet have the logic to actually do the following. I can't even get the Breeze to track my position around it in follow me mode.

    One thought, I think I will play with GEO fence settings and follow me settings to give it one more chance.

    I know people like Yuneec support but all I get is the auto email response and nothing else even weeks later. Not impressive in my opinion.
