Yeh, you are right. I didn't know the custom button was defaulted to sport mode. If I change it to manual mode it should work? Thanks for your help, I thought manual mode would work on default settings, I have flown alot of dji drones. I have the mavic 2 zoom too!

This is most certainly a machine that you should read the manual before flying it

Hello! I’ve been trying to fly manual on my DJI fpv drone, and everytime I fly for about 2 minutes as soon as I start ripping it says “unable to use manual mode” and takes me to normal and sport only I already turned off the default setting so yes I’ve flown full acro, but lately my drone has been stopping in mid flight with no obstacles or anything it just says unable to fly manual how can I fix this so I can fly !

There are a few reasons why the drone will drop out of manual mode

1. Drone loses GPS lock
2. Entering restricted airspace
3. Getting within 40 meters of your airspace ceiling

There may be more, but those are the ones I know of

Hello, I'm having the same problem, I did a firmware update and then went outside to fly and It wouldn't allow me to enter Manual mode. I'm looking for answer's myself but it's looking pretty slim. And contacting someone at DJI is a joke as well

It's probably worth going into Settings > Control > Remote Controller > Button Customization and checking that the bottom option "Custom Mode" is still set to "Manual Mode". I would suspect that somehow the firmware update has reset this back to the default "Sport Mode". I could be wrong, but that's the first thing I would check.
