I keep my collision avoidance off, because I find it stops me too often when flying close in to things, which I do a lot of.

Before I upgraded to the latest firmware, I used to have the visual warning on the app still show up as well as the audio on the aircraft when I turned the collision avoidance off.

Since the upgrade there is no option to have the "radar" screen pop up to warn you with the CA turned off.  It was nice having the warning still pop up with the avoidance turned off, if you are reading this DJI - please re enable the warning distance on the app when the CA is turned off.

When the OA system turns off, it will not work for the whole system, and the radar option will also disappear accordingly. It doesn't seem to have the case like you mentioned that when OA doesn't work the radar will still work.

Before I upgraded firmware when I had the OA turned off, I still had the radar screen pop up that would warn me I was getting close, but it would not stop the aircraft.  If it was close by I could still hear the audible warning too.

Maybe it was a bug in that firmware too - in any case it was nice to have so you knew you how close you were to something even when you had the OA turned off.

It is confirmed that the radar will not work when OA system is unable. But I will forward this need to the engineers to see if they could add.

Please if possible make it something one can select.
I don't mind the radar popping up but all the beeping is really annoying to have when OA is disabled and i for my part would prefer to be without both in this case.

It has been working until last dji go updates. On DJI GO 4.0.8 you can see the radar on screen with OA disable , but will be limited if you have the firmware updated...

So it´s working, it has been disable on app , on mavic it keeps working with last versions of app and firmware, so they could and should make it again.

Flying in lot of places you have to disable OA to be able to move, and having radar on screen helps a lot.

Another that show even with OA disabled the radar is active, just anoying it see the sun a obstacle and for the same reason i found the OA system useless and have it disabled. A choise for disable OA beep woud be nice.
