How to select Profile Mode on Spark Active Track?

I have played with Trace by default, but don't know how to activate Profile.

Is there a difference between the circle function in Quick Shot vs Active Track? I know active track allows you to adjust the speed of the circle, but does one seem to work better than the other?

Ok, I finally figured out Profile and Flying Backwards as I walk. Once in Active Track Mode, the Controller Icon on the left of the screen changes to a box with a "Standing Man" icon. It looks like a man standing and facing you. When you select that icon, it changes to a "Walking Man" in Profile icon. I had not noticed that before. With the Walking Man icon showing, start walking either toward Spark or 90degrees to Spark. If you walk toward Spark, it flies backward. If you walk 90degrees to Spark, it tracks you in Profile. Awesome!

Mystery solved. The manual does not identify these two icons. Actually, the manual shows the walking man for both modes, but doesn't identify them as icons. For me,,it was VERY confusing. I hope this helps someone.

A subtle difference between Trace and Profile. You can orbit in Trace with the Go4 App, but not Profile. With the controller, you can orbit in both Trace and Profile. Interesting little difference....not sure why???? Maybe they will activate orbit in profile with the Go4 app later.
