Today while using Fly 1.2.2 iOS I went to test RTH as I was intending to fly with the wind, when I initiated RTH even tho I had 24 - 25 satellites locked the Mini 2 advised Atti Mode! I tried this twice and on both occasions Atti Mode was advised (not sure if it actually went into Atti Mode because the AC seems stable).  Anybody else witness this bug?

Post your recorded flight data.
It will give a better idea of what actually happened.

Go to: https://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/Upload/
... where you'll find instructions.
That will give a report you can post a link for the report here.
Or just post the .txt file.

Now that is interesting and most odd.... Another reason to wait a while until People update

Until the OP posts flight data no-one has any idea what the issue is caused by.
It's very unlikely to have anything to do with a firmware update.

So no info until flight data but you still gave your opinion.

The fact is that quite often when DJI push out any sort of update it messes up something else.

You my man are I think a little obsessed with flight data logs

I gave my opinion that it's unlikely to have anything to do with firmware because I understand what firmware does (and cannot do).
Unlike you I have a great deal of experience with DJI drones.

The fact is that quite often when DJI push out any sort of update it messes up something else.

The fact is that people like you tend to blame all kinds of things on firmware updates without any proof.

You my man are I think a little obsessed with flight data logs.

You say that like there's something wrong with it.
Recorded flight data tells the truth of what actually happened rather than extremely unreliable guesses.
When you lose your drone or can't understand what happened to it, do you want to rely on uninformed guesses or someone that can tell exactly what happened?
And I'm definitely not your man.

I also had this happen to me twice yesterday when taking off. Not sure if it is a bug, but took it at face value the message was legitimate. I did recently update to 1.2.2 also. I had not seen the message before.

I'm curious about this if this has anything to do with the update.
Since DJI stated that that they improved the connection.

Hi Labroides, I’ll upload the data later today as I’ll be very interested in your analysis, thank you.  However  I performed a IMU calibration last night and this morning before I flew I receive a AC FW update 1.02, which I updated... I didn’t get any Atti Mode warnings

It's the same as with any software ... sometimes existing bugs are fixed, but others are added, even if they are not directly related to the bug that has been fixed.

I'm sure DJI will fix it (if it is firmware related of course)

Sorry but that file is garbled junk.
Either the file is scrambled or you've used the wrong one.
Could you post just the .txt file ?

There's something quite odd with that flight data.
Airdata reads it but Phantomhelp won't.

Nowhere near as easily ... I'll have a go at it when I get home in a few hours

Your drone never lost GPS.
It looks like your issue was a small yaw error which caused a conflict between the data from GPS and the gyro sensor in the IMU.
In those situations, the Flight Controller stops using the GPS data.
The yaw error started when the drone turned to RTH.

You were lucky it was a small yaw error, larger errors usually end badly.
The incident was completely unrelated to any firmware.
Yaw errors are most commonly caused by launching close to something made of steel which deflects the compass sensor, causing the IMU Gyro to be initialised wrongly.

Many thanks for the analysis, I always hand launch and then check the drone orientation on the map when prompted that the home point has been updated.  Is it fair to say the IMU calibration I performed cleared the issue prior to the firmware update and subsequent trouble free flight (I'd had this Atti Mode issue at two separate flight locations)?

The best advice I can give for the future is never be one of the first to update things if your kit what ever it is is working OK. Updating in these circumstances usually ends badly

FlyApp 1.2.2 flightlogs have a different encryption, cannot be converted using PH or the TxtToCSV tool.

Airdata shows only limited data fields....guess DJI didn't like people to analyze (better)....  ;-)

Updating in these circumstances usually ends badly.
Usually ??
So the first people to update usually end up in trouble??
Thanks for the "advice" but it's quite uncommon for any update to cause problems.
The early adopters rarely suffer any ill effects.

I am also having an issue after updating to the latest Aircraft firmware 01.02.0100. I'm running RC firmware 02.00.1200 and iOS app v 1.2.2. I live in the Southwestern United States with perfectly clear skies, but lately I keep getting the ATTI mode alert and a loss of GPS signal despite seeing up to 21 satellites. I cannot not hover to save my life but RTH does continue to work. ATTI mode is automatically initiated when taking off or changing modes - even with a good RC connection and numerous satellites. I see from many the other posts on the DJI Forum, that I'm not alone in this situation. Hoping for a solution.

There are many reports on Mavic Pilots also, yet DJI remain silent on these posts and do not even acknowledge individuals are having issues, or even offer to pass information onto the technical departments.  Very poor response.

Getting atti mode notifications and not just during RTH.  This on was on RTH with 23 sats good signal between devices.  Haven't had the MM2 for a week yet, so I don't have any experience other than the latest software update.

Looks like your Mini 2 def has some issue. I have never seen that error on mine so you might want to contact DJI support to send in for analysis.

Have had the “Weak GPS” error as well, when there were clearly enough GPS satellites. Happened on two separate flights (but in the same location). So far it hasn’t happened since.

I'm experiencing a similar problem. I just got a brand new Mini 2 and took it on its first flight yesterday after updating the firmware and installing the most recent version of DJI Fly. I received multiple "Switching to Atti" messages during the flight, even when it was connected to 22 satellites, and could not get it to RTH. I'm hoping someone (Labroides?) can figure out what's happening. I don't want to fly a droid with unreliable RTH!

You are not on the latest Fly app. The log shows you are still on 1.2.2. You need to update to 1.2.4 to see if the Atti errors are resolved.

I was able to fly again today. No atti warnings this time and 3 or 4 RTHs without any trouble. Compare that to 12 atti warnings and no successful RTHs during the previous flight under the same conditions and in the same area using DJI Fly 1.2.2. Looks like the 1.2.4 update most likely fixed the problem.
