Does sport mode energy consumption affect signal strength and transmission  in mavic air?

G'day Amjad1983.

Sport mode shall give you more sensitive control sticks, faster flying speed, more braking distance and it disables the obstacle avoidance system.

Practice in a large open area until you are used to the higher performance.

Sport mode does not affect transmission power or signal strength but when at full speed the tilt of the machine might make the propeller blades visible to the camera.

If you fly fast at high power the flight time is reduced.

Take care and have fun

Sport mode should have no effect on RC signal strength but it does consume more energy that P-mode & reduces flight duration.

G'day Amjad1983.

exactly this what happened to me last time ,but also i  noticed reduction in my signal transmission but once i returned back to P mode signal became stronger
Thats why i need to compare with others

Hi, thanks for the inquiry. Sports mode should not affect the signal strength and transmission as long as there will be no possible interference in a certain environment, however, the flight time would be reduced due to consumption on the battery while on the sports mode. Thank you for the support.
