I have two P4Ps and I’ve used the DD app to perform hundreds of flights over the past two years with no issues until now. I fly using a Samsung Note 9, same one for the last year and a half. I had a client flight on Thursday and during the flight the app continually crashed mid flight with no warning. I was able to sucessfully complete the flight but I had to restart the app around 11 times during the 28 minute flight. No apps were running in the background and the USB cable was fine (phone was consistently connected and no permission request between crashes).
Today I had two more flights but today they were on FAA airspace. I used the embedded AirMap app in the DD app and sucessfully got flight authorization which was confirmed by receipt of the LAANC text message with authorization code but the DD app never confirmed my authorization. Though the preflight checklist showed all green, nothing would happen when I clicked the “fly” button. I confirmed flight authorization through the DJI app and was about to fly and also made sure that RTH altitude was below the authorized altitude but I could still not take off. On top of that, the app crashed around 5 times as I am trying to take off.
Are there any ideas of fixes to this? I have reinstalled the app three times now with no change. I have 6 client jobs this week, with three that need LAANC authorization and I’m desperate to get this fixed. Very disappointing given the flawless track record this app has had for me up until now.
