So quick query and info for people regarding what looks like a quite significant limitation in the iOS version 1.0.3 of the DJI Flight app for the Mavic Mini.

Seems unlike the Andriod version (screen shot included) there is no equivalent option under advanced settings in the iOS App version 1.0.3 to set a signal loss action meaning on signal loss flying with iOS the Mini defaults to RTH which is the last thing you want if flying indoors or under a tree canopy.

So iOS users beware, until this is fixed be very careful flying the mini in a confined space.

Hi Andy, DJI Fly for Mavic Mini cannot select Signal Loss Action no matter it is iOS version or Android version.
We can see signal loss action under Advanced Settings without connecting to Mavic Mini, but it will disappear once the Mavic Mini is connected. The Signal Loss Action is RTH for Mavic Mini by default. Thanks for your understanding.

Don't think you would get signal lost flying indoor

Unfortunately, you can. It happened to me twice with the Spark and the signal loss was caused by wifi interference.

It would be nice to be able to set different options depending on the status of the AC,

well, you do have to be disconnected for 11s for the RTH to initiate so that seems like sufficient time to move closer to the drone while indoors to re-establish contact. Also, where does the drone RTH while indoors? Without GPS signal and without a HP set, would it actually do anything? On the other hand, if you were to switch this to Hover (or even worse, Land) and then forget it like that when you go out, you could be in big trouble. Imagine flying the drone out of reach (behind an obstacle, too far away above water or anything like that) and having it just hover there, with no chance for you to get closer in time before the battery runs out.

I’m not sure if this is correct I will check it, what I can tell you loss of signal within 60ft your craft will always land , so unless your flying in a building and are 60ft + from the HP you have no need to worry, if you are in a building this big it’s likely roof will be higher than 50ft so you can set Rth to its minimum .
