How to use Cruise Control on DJI Mini 4 Pro

The cruise control function makes long distance flights effortless and helps you avoid image shaking (which often happens during manual operating).

It does so by enabling the aircraft to lock the control stick input of the remote controller, allowing you to automatically fly at the current speed.

Set the Cruise Control Button

  1. To use the function you have to set a cruise control shortcut button first, open the app settings and select Control.

  • More camera movements such as spiralling up can be achieved by increasing the control stick input.

  2. Tap on the X icon on the left side of the camera view.
