Best Drone with Follow Me Feature Under $500?

I’m looking for a drone that can take videos of my dog running and my car driving. What are some good options with the “follow me” feature in the $100-$500 range? I would love to hear the community’s recommendations and experiences.


Drones with dependable “follow me” features that fall between $100 and $500 are the DJI Mini SE and the Potensic Dreamer 4K, which are great for filming your dog and automobile. Both include strong tracking features and high-quality videos that are appropriate for dynamic topics like dogs and moving cars. Making an informed decision would benefit from community opinions on these models!

The DJI Mini 2 is solid for tracking subjects like pets or cars while filming. Great video quality and user-friendly, especially if you’re new to drones. I highly recommend it.


Do you need a drone that can autonomously follow you while you drive a car, all for under $500?


That’s tough because any drone with that feature needs a few sensors, and sensors are expensive. You could maybe get a used Mini 3 Pro with non-screen RC (not fly more combo) for under $500, but you’ll likely have to do some searching.

I will recommend you to purchase this drone @vincent with a “Follow Me” feature under $500:

Holy Stone HS720:

  • Price: Around $300
  • Flight Time: Up to 26 minutes
  • Camera: 4K UHD
  • Features: GPS-assisted flight, “Follow Me” mode, return-to-home function, brushless motors for stability.
  • Pros: Great camera quality, solid build, stable flight performance.
  • Cons: Slightly bulky, longer charging time.

This drone offer good value for their price and include a reliable “Follow Me” feature, making them suitable for capturing dynamic footage hands-free.

The refurbished Parrot Anafi drone can follow you, though it lacks obstacle avoidance. One unique feature is its ability to point the camera vertically both upwards and downwards. It also offers various AI capabilities, such as follow-me mode and subject tracking for focused filming. Despite some criticism, I find mine to be great value for the price.
