The orientation icon in the DJI app for the Mavic Air 2 is always red with a line through it.  The MA2 does not show that I need to calibrate so I am unable to solve the problem.

What are you using for your display device?  Is it GPS-enabled?  Have you calibrated the device compass?  Are location services enabled?

Just out of curiosity...where did you get those pictures of the aircraft orientation indicator???  It's been my wish with every DJI drone I've owned that they would publish all the warnings/cautions/alerts, what triggers the message, and what to do to resolve the issue.

That answered the question.  I had to change the setting on my iPhone 10s concerning the DJI Fly app and it works.

A user had posted this this image on a similar question about aircraft orientation errors. I then copied it to my Mavic Air 2 folder on my PC. Everytime I see a question on this subject, I just post it to the thread.

Thanks, I am now doing the same.

Hello there hvail. I am sorry for the trouble this has caused and thank you for reaching out. Does the said issue look like the image below? If yes, it means the mobile device’s GPS is poor and the DJI Fly application cannot calculate the relative position of the aircraft and mobile device. At this time, the indicator does not show the GPS status of the aircraft. The GPS status of the aircraft can be checked through the number of satellites and GPS signal strength shown at the top of the said application. Thank you.

I must have missed something.  What fixed the problem?  I have the same problem.  My relative position and orientation in the lower center of the Fly App always show that my Aircraft is behind me, or on the side of me despite the camera facing forward (away from me) and me being directly behind the unit.

When flying directly away from me, the Arrow Indicator I assume should be pointing forward or away from me.  When I return the aircraft by pivoting it 180 degrees, the arrow should then be pointing at me.  Problem is, neither of those things happen.


My Location Services are on.  My GPS works fine on my phone and for the life of me I can't figure this out.

A brother needs help.

Thanks in advance.

Some people have just rotated the phone 180 degrees in the RC holder.

After I got the GPS to connect I realize the orientation is out of whack as well   It’s not pointing with the nose.
