I am new to the DJI Fly app having used Go4 the last fiew years. I don't see any way to disable landing protectdion on the Mavic 3. Also, I generally reduce the braking to the minimum so the drone doesn't do as much of a tail stand when I release the stick.  I don't see any way to adjust these on the DJI Fly app. Am I missing something?

Hello there amorrison. Thank you for reaching out and for these information that you have given. Landing Protection will activate during Smart RTH. When the DJI Mavic 3 begins landing, Landing Protection is enabled.
1. During Landing Protection, the drone will automatically detect and carefully land on suitable ground.
2. If the ground is determined unsuitable for landing, the drone will hover and wait for pilot confirmation.
3 If Landing Protection is not operational, DJI Fly will display a landing prompt when the drone descends below 0.5m. Pull down on the throttle stick or use the auto landing slider to land.
Thank you.

Hi Stephen,

Guess you do not understand that we like the option in the FlyApp to disable Landing Protection.

As you probably know that the Landing Protection does function too when flying with speed at approx 0.5 meter!  Lowering means automatically into AutoLanding, wich can be a disaster for a DJI drone if the remote pilot does not want to land!.  Few DJI drones are lost this way....

So, add few lines to the code and add this option.!

BTW
When flying in Track mode the pilot cannot lower the craft lower than low.
So use this as well for the Landing Protection (LP) ; flying with speed automatically disable LP.

cheers
JJB

I totally agree with everybody on this thread, I just can't understand why DJI has removed the Landing Protection switch from the Fly App settings, it is such a useful feature as in some cases it is necessary to land the drone on hand as the landing surface is not auspicious for its integrity (It's dangerous to use as a work-around the auto-landing function and then hand catch the Mavic 3).

PLEASE RESTORE THE LANDING PROTECTION SWITCH IN NEW DJI FLY APP RELEASE

I'm sure that would make a lot of happy users!

Ricardo.

I'll add my agreement to this thread.  I think landing protection is the single biggest shock I encountered with the M3 - I don't like control taken away from me at any point.  I usually fly with all obstacle detection off - fortunately this is sort of possible by telling the app to neither brake nor bypass.

But the most important thing is to allow us to land as we intend rather than force us to delegate control.  We need every piece of functionality from GO4.  Already it's quite annoying to not be able to tilt & zoom at the same time, and not having the 5D button or C-buttons.  That's hardware though; software can be extended (and definitely should be in the case of a flagship drone such as the Mavic 3).  I love the drone but there are some aspects which are a bit baffling.

Don’t think they removed it. They just haven’t added it yet…

I also vote for disabling Landing Protection. I used my Mavic Pro and Mavic 2 to film promo videos and photos for boating catalogs. It’s much safer to hover the drone above the boat and land it in my hand than trying to land on a bouncing boat. If I can’t do this on the Mavic 3 by Spring, it’ll be going back to DJI.

The list of broken/coming items is pretty long at this point. I don’t have high expectations, understand they shipped the drone half-baked and that’s OK. But I wish DJI would at least identify that these features are coming, or not coming…

Just flew again, my M3 range is horrible vs. my M2, and when I brought it back home, the altimeter thought the landing zone was 60 feet above ground….
