How to use Follow Me on ANAFI 4K/USA/Thermal?

What is the workflow for using the built-in Follow Me functionality of the ANAFI? I’m trying to have the ANAFI pursue a moving target at an offset distance. It looks a lot like the “geographic mode” of Follow Me is what I want, but I can’t get it to start.

I tried something like this:

follow_me.configure_geographic(0, dist, elev, azi);
follow_me.target_framing_position(50,50);
follow_me.target_trajectory(target_latitude, target_longitude, target_altitude, 0, 0, 0);
follow_me.start(ARSDK_FOLLOW_ME_MODE_GEOGRAPHIC);

No matter what combination of things I do I always get the following in ulogcat logs from ANAFI: “(autopilot-61/piloting_loop-209) : Followme start ignored (not available)”

Am I doing something wrong? Is it only possible with an ANAFI Ai?
