hey .. I have a HUGE Problem.

I live in an Enhanced warning zone (Blue) .. and well my roof is extended so the Mavic can't get satellites or eats up 20% of the battery till it does .. so i take of from the bedroom where we have a latch on the house where I can put the Mavic to get satellites (it usually takes just like 1 minute or so at this spot)

the latch is only about 40cm/15Inch wide so I can take off from there, but there is no way to land on that thing without destroying the props or worse (especially since this sin the first floor)

so all good .. I turn the Mavic on .. wait for satellite fix, then start the motors, the app immidealty tell me that I need to get authorization to take off.
I go through the dialogs while the motors running, get confirmation, and then take off.

BUT the second the Mavic leaves solid ground I get there autoland warning .. and it will force land 20 seconds later.
and that is almost impossible at this spot without causing major damage to the drone.

the question is:
- how can I make sure the authorization stay active (as starting the motors isn't enough apparently)
- why does it autoland in 20 sec ? the mini autolands after 90 sec. which is plenty of time to fly out from under the roof and casually re-do the authorization
but 20 sec is hardly enough time to fly anywhere to find a spot to land.

you are aware that this automated responses do have zero value right? besides of creating the appearance of support?

how about letting me (and others) know how the unlocking is processed, then everyone would learn somethings and plan the actions we take so everyone would be safer. ;)

blaming the interference is just an easy way out, especially since I did address this already, but it does not help anyone, as this can be a serious issue
just imagine someone never experienced it .. take off from a 30-floor building .. you fly away immediately and then the Mavic autolands in a crowded street below?
because you can't gain altitude when autoland is in progress .. the only thing you can do is hold the stick up[ walk down, pray the signal is not lost ad then hope it doesn't kill anyone on the ground.
or crash it purposely to avoid injuries.

simply telling me WHY the mavic autolands or HOW the decitions are made that lead to the autolanding would already have solved this since I would be able to find a way around it,
just like I do it with the mini .. however, the steps to do with the mini do not work (take off without phone) because the Mavic Pro will (unlike the mini) autoland in less than 1 minute.
and that will simply have it drown in the pond behind my house.

this post is not about interference at all, its about autolanding and how it gets there, also to help others that may experience this Randomly.
