Hi, all!

In the DJI Pilot app flying the P3P, is there a way to use the camera in manual mode while still displaying the usual flight screen (speeds, distances, map, etc.)? I prefer using manual mode for video, because the camera seems to overexpose in auto mode. However, I'd still like to be able to see the flight data.

Them details should still be showing in manual camera mode. Are you sure you are not "swiping down" and hiding the telemetry by mistake?
Can yuo take a screenshot of the issue?

This first photo shows the camera in manual mode.https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_Wwgdl-vz61aTA3TzB2NDJ4NU0/edit?usp=docslist_api

The next image is the display after pressing the advanced mode button (three-slider icon at the bottom of the camera toolbar) to go to advanced mode. The flight data are gone.

The only way I can seem to get then back is pressing that advanced mode button again, which reverts the camera back to manual.

Can you not "left swipe" the manual mode settings box on the left out of the way?

Thanks saw them.. You need to "swipe" the manual mode settings windows out of the way you will then get telemetry back but maintain the manual settings.

You may be misunderstanding what sploodge is suggesting.

When you tap on that manual/auto icon in the lower right corner, the window on the left with the three settings appears. You do not have to leave that window open to stay in manual mode.

Yes, if you press the settings icon again, the window slides away and you're back in auto mode.

Instead, try swiping the 3-option settings window on the left from right to left, i.e., "off the screen" and see if your telemetry data returns. When you swipe that window off the screen, the camera manual settings icon will remain highlighted, indicating you ARE still in manual mode.

Does that make sense? I tried to test it, but, since I'm not connected at the moment, I don't have access to the camera options/functions. I truly wish the pilot app would let you test "remotely" with a warning that nothing is really being changed because you're not connected. PITA to wire everything up just to see an item in the app.

Holy cow! I feel dumb. Yes, that totally works. I notice now it even says something about swiping left to hide it. Thanks, both of you!

DJI should add visual hint that you can swipe the advanced mode panel away... bad GUI desing from them.
