I found a Bug today, under the latest firmware (.340)
In the previous firmware when someone switched Normal to Tripod and back and had the APAS on, it remained on.
Now in the .340 they have disable the APAS on Tripod mode, thus when you switch to Tripod, it will use only Hover mode. But when you switch back to Normal, it stays in the hover mode. So you have to manually re-enable the Bypass mode.

Its not big of a Bug, but still is a little annoying.

You could enable it again by tapping the new green/white symbol on left screen side. When it is green BYPASS is on again. BUT: It sets Disable Sideways Flight to ON! To set that back to allow sideways flight you need to open the menu. I like to control the MA2 on every axis. Because it is a drone and not a plane... To me this is a bug or oversight?

From the moment is not saving the bypass option to use it again when switch back is bug anyway.
Thats why I said you have to do it again manually.

I'm confused as you're using APAS and hover which are mutually exclusive. You could never enable APAS in tripod mode, only in Normal flight mode. And the only place I have seen "Hover" is int the "Signal Lost" settings.

When I say APAS I mean the object avoidance. That is APAS about anyway. And when I say Hover, I mean it stops and doesn’t move, it just hovers. What did confuse you so much? These are the 2 options when detects objects in its path.

I think "Brake" is the term the app uses.  Bypass, Brake or Off...thanks for the info,though...definitely seems like a bug.  I, personally, would like the default to be Bypass.

Ok I remember it wrong.
But the result is stopping and hovering in front of the object.
Anyway that's not what the tread is about.

I hope that they will correct it.
Its one of those annoying things that weren't there and the "bam" with the new firmware appear out of nowwhere to make your life just a tiny bit more miserable.
I am write those things to trigger DJI's attention.

There are in reality a couple of bugs:

1. The primary one is as stated above switching from "normal in "bypass" mode to "tripod" and back to "normal" loses the "bypass" setting, I assume this is because "tripod" doesn't support "bypass".  However if I switch to "sport" from "normal and back to "normal" the drone doesn't lose the "bypass" setting even though "sport" doesn't support "bypass" mode

2. The bypass/brake/off icon function, that is pressing the icon to change modes is not at all consistent.
  
Tripod - if you are in "off" mode" pressing the icon switches the drone to "brake" mode, once in "brake" mode pressing the icon has no effect.

Normal - if you are in "bypass" mode pressing the icon switches the drone to "brake" mode, pressing the icon again switches the drone to "bypass" safe mode (no side to side movement), you can then toggle between "brake" and "bypass" safe mode, but not "bypass" mode.  One other point, if you are in "off" mode pressing the icon switches to "bypass" safe mode and then you can only toggle between "brake" and "bypass" safe mode.

The ability to change modes using the icon is a great feature, but at present is not very useful due to its current behavior/limitations.

The APAS Bypass works perfectly in Tripod mode, going around any obstacle exactly as it does in Normal mode.  It’s then switched to Brake only when switched out of Tripod mode to Normal and then back again to Tripod during flight or on the ground.  If I power off the aircraft and power it on again, with the controller is still set to Tripod mode, the BYPASS if turned back on.

Perhaps DJI might have a look at a firmware update that allows APAS to fully function in Normal or Tripod modes, that seems feasible to me for DJI to accomplish.  If it’s not, it's a really big negative on the Mavic Air 2 for me.

Thanks for the information on the APAS.  I had noticed this until it was mentioned and fans2502b0ec commented today as the post was old.  Does anyone know if it is still occurring in Mavic Air 2 firmware v01.00.0460 with RC firmware v02.00.110.  I will try to test it in the next day or two if possible.

Thanks DJI Paladin and also JohnLietzke for your input.  I had contacted DJI North America about the issue a couple of weeks ago and they had me send it to the service center in CA for repair.  After they received it, they tested everything and said there were no issues found, and that APAS was not at all available in Tripod, and I questioned why they had me send it in if the issue didn't actually point to a fault.  I just got my Air2 back yesterday, and after calibrating everything and double checking all settings in the menu in the FLY app, I took it out for a test.  True, if you power on the drone with the controller set to anything other than tripod mode and then switch the controller to tripod, only option is BRAKE or OFF.  However, if you power on the drone with your controller set to Tripod, APAS if fully functional.  You can engage or disable sideways flight in the menu, you can switch from Bypass to Brake to Off and then back again to either of the two previous settings, and APAS fully functions as it does in Normal mode.  I tested it forwards and backwards, and it works perfectly.  But, the moment you switch out of Tripod to either Normal or Sport mode, APAS Bypass is no longer available for Tripod and the only option is then Brake or Off.  If I leave the controller powered on and switched to Tripod mode, land the aircraft and restart it, APAS is turned back on and again, fully functional in Tripod mode.  Switch out of Tripod and Bypass is turned off again.  I double checked to make sure I have the latest firmware, and it's up to date.  In my opinion, dear DJI, it's definitely a bug with the current firmware.?.

I just wanted to respond back and thank you both and let's hope that soon DJI will seriously take a look into this.
