Summary: After planning a new flight, the DD app would not recognize that my Mavic was connected. Why not?
Flew this drone (Mavic Pro) for the first time at Baylands Park in Santa Clara.
Using the DJI GO app and my iPhone first, I was able to set up, fly, take videos/photos, and land happily. I needed to unlock the area first, as the app considered my to be in a no-fly zone.
Started up the DD app, centered on current location, and created a new flight plan with maybe an acre of coverage. Only the Save icon was showing. See this image as an example: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aee8b3lp7ixfqed/DD%20no%20connected%20drone.png?dl=0 .
Could not get the Save icon to turn into the Fly icon. Tried:
- Restarting DD app
- Disconnecting and reconnecting phone from controller
- Restarting controller and drone
- Switching to DJI Go app and Pix4D app (both worked fine)
- (the next day, at home) flipping the Sport switch back and forth
The next day, well away from Baylands, I could connect, plan a flight, and fly with no problem.
DD app version 2.00-2.0.29
