    hello, I am a very beginner either piloting drone and technology used. I got recently the x183 global drone with follow me functionnaliy from China...nobody is perfect. And obviously when reviewing the material I did not find the functionality...the RC transmitter should have a specific button for the follow me mode and another specific button for the point of interest functionality. However these two buttons are false on my transmitter, I mean nothing connected behind, only the shape of the button is present on the transmitter. So I understand I receviez à wrong transmitter. My first question is: do I need to request a new transmitter only or both transmitter and drone. In other words, how these functionalities are implemented? Is it only on the transmitter or shared between transmitter and drone itself?
    Thanks for your help, waiting for your help before negotiating with Chinese seller, what it probably more difficult than having the drone flying....

    I think you should try sending a message to the Chinese supplier where you bought tell them what your wrote here see if they can send you a working transmitter or give you a full refund? If you can afford the DJI Spark is a million times better and getting cheaper now that DJI Mavic Air is available.

    Does the x183 global have an attachment for a gps tracking device on it?

    Youre welcome, Linn. These are so awesome I had to share... I am amazed at what I see in some of them.

    And thanks for the compliment on my new hat, too.
