The pilot can be assisted by a camera operator. The camera operator acts as a copilot relieving the pilot from all other tasks than piloting. In dual GCS mode, the pilot GCS controls the movement of the aircraft whilst the camera operator controls the camera motion and parameters. At any time, the pilot can override the camera operator command. Both GCS receive the live video feed.
Any GCS unit can be reprogrammed to serve as a camera operator unit using DJI GO.
