as some of you know i recently could have used turtle mode in the snow but no matter what I do I get the turtle mode not needed message in the goggles.
i have tried, normal, sports, manual. full manual, angle limited manual. set to a single tap, a double tap. but no matter what I have it set up in it always says turtle mode not needed.Just like in Aldrin's video.

this has been on the ground outside on my deck, on packed snow, on a desk and nothing lets it activate as it is suppose to.

dji support would be reading from a screen and for now that would be great as I can't find any info anywhere that fixes it.
Flytpath did a video and got his to work but nope, nothing I do gets mine to flip or even try.

anyone else getting the turtle mode not needed?
does it not realize it is upside down?

my crash could have used this, just need it to WORK!

Same problem. Set it to toubble tap C1. Flipped the aircraft while landing in full manual acro with no limiter. Disarmed and tried to use turtle mode and received the same message turtle mode not required. Same thing in all flight modes while aircraft was upside down on the ground.

seems a few people are getting this message of it not being needed even though it is upside down and full acro is on.

i have hit dji up and they seem to be aware of it not working correctly for everyone. waiting to hear a solution still.

finally got it working. unlike flytpath's video mine has to actually have props on or enabled and then flipped upside down where the auto turn off happens and then turtle mode will work. i am working on a video to explain this for my viewers soon, just wanted to share that I did get it to work finally. just in a different fashion.

Hey Guys, I found the way it wasn't working and after how it works. Don't have the props on but turn it on and by hand I turned the drone upside down if the motors stops it is right and will works perfectly on all modes but if it the motors still running restart all system and try it again. Another thing I did is I just refreshed the last firmware because it wasn't working at all, after reinstall the same firmware it get working well but I always have the procedure to make sure all motors will stop even without props so that way I am sure the gyro is reading the drone orientation and have all props on so it makes turtle mode working without any issue.

I think ive found out what the issue is. Turtle mode works only if the drone detects a fall and NOT being put upside down intentionally. I removed the props, armed the motors and flipped it making random movements. Then activated turtle mode and boom.. the motors fired up. Just coz the props weren't there i got a message in the goggles 'turtle mode failed'

What were the steps you took before activating turtle mode?  In Manual Mode?  Did you activate motors then shut off , flip over then press c1?  Did it work in all modes?

1. Turn the unit upside down without having mounted the rotors for your first test.
2. Take 'Manual Mode' -> N/S/(M).
3. Start the motors with tap twice Start/Stop (M) button
4. change to 'Normal Mode' -> M/S/(N)
     4.1 the motors should be stop
     4.2 on screen you gets an error message, to check the motors and rotors
     4.3 you can confirm, or ignore (it seems not be relevant)
5. Tap C1 once / twice, depending on your configuration
6. the device should use turtle mode and run once
7. after a few seconds it will stop with an error message. sometimes you can try again.
8. restart your device.
