DJI Unlocked Blue Authorization Zone Causing Mission Flight Error with Mavic Mini

    There is a Respect Restricted Zone setting in the approach which is defaulted to on. Not sure if this is what’s causing it but maybe it will solve issue. 
    Good Luck.

    Thank you, Mike. I have that set to off. Here are some screen captures:

    I’ve never done any mapping so I’m sure your better then I am. Only thing I can see which may be an issue is the Altitude Range settings. The default on my settings is always 15 feet. So your 1 meter is only about 3 feet. It won’t take much to have it off that slight altitude change and I believe the mission will fail. Try setting it to about 5 meters.

    Also I’ve seen some issues with the photo intervals less then 3 or 4 seconds. Maybe try an interval of 3 or 4 seconds if it fails with the Altitude settings changed. 

    If it still fails to run the mission you can try turning off the required disengagement on each section and see if it runs that way. If it runs then you should know it’s one of the settings in those sections. Then maybe fine tune it. 

    ******** Have you tried to run the simulator on that mission. *********                    Curious if it accomplishes the mission or fails. 



    If not, it will be strike three for me. 😳

    Can you send a link of the mission ? I’m curious to see what it looks like. 

    Good Luck, Mike.......

    Great ideas, Mike. I have run the simulator and it does not fail. Here is a link to my mission:

    Hi Jim. I read the other post from the link you sent. Since I’m a simple man with a small brain, does this mean you can’t fly in any restricted zone with DL ?  Even if authorization has been given to fly within the DJI Fly app ? 

    I’m Just curious for possible future use. 
    Thanks, Mike.....

    Some users have reported that they are able to successfully unlock zones and some haven't. There appears to be no rhyme or reason to it.

    Ok. I looked at the area on the map and I don’t see anything which would indicate a reason to have a restricted zone there. Definitely Strange all the way around but, that’s life in the computer age. Thanks Jim......

    Mike, The site is about 3 miles from an airport, and the authorization area is along the flight path for small aircraft approach and take-off.

    Hi Andrew. I checked your plan to see what it looked like since I’ve never done one. I’m constantly trying to learn more with DL every week. I can’t fly your mission today due to 40 mph winds. Looks like it may be much better tomorrow. I am curious if your exact copied plan runs where I am. If it doesn’t run then there must be a reason why and maybe we could figure it out together. 

    I just created my own first Orthomosaic mapping mission at my house just to see how it will work too. I keep trying new functions, features and ways to create some missions and test different settings, commands etc. It can do much more then I originally thought possible. It’s an Amazing App. Hopefully I can fly a couple of these missions tomorrow and I can let you know if your interested. I have a Mavic Air 2 and a Mavic Mini so I’m curious to see how it runs in both drones  

    I also use the Official Dronelink Group on Facebook. If interested Facebook messenger can be used for private exchange of info. If not then no biggie.

    Good Luck and Enjoy.

    Mike......
