Hello all,

We are experiencing a bug where the camera constantly resets to AUTO. Please see below for our configuration.

-Dual operator
-Camera settings settings typically set by slave controller (always set to Manual)
-Shooting 4k UHD / 24fps (although it seems to happen regardless of resolution and frame rate)
-Aircraft FW 1.9.1.30
-Camera FW 1.9.1.10
-Master RC FW 1.7.40
-DJI GO app 2.9.1 (3.0 is trash as far as I'm concerned)
-DJI focus with 5.8ghz wireless expansion module (works great BTW)
-Typically on radio channel 20
-FPVLR advanced antennas on both master and slave
-Prosight FPV system

We have noticed that the following things will prompt the camera to switch back to AUTO

-When changing battery
-When slave remote loses video signal for a moment
-When performing a lens calibration

Its quite an annoying bug, especially when I give the focus remote to  the DP and give them iris control only to have to repeatedly explain why  the f-stop needs to be constantly reset.

Does anyone have any workarounds to avoid this issue?

Never had a problem with it flicking over to auto, other than when doing a lens calibration, which is by design btw. Never had it reset if the controller looses connection, that's very strange.

When you first boot it should be still on last setting, so if it was on manual then it should be on manual. The only thing that is a little screwy is the F stop is always reset back, but it should still be on manual.

Have you tried using the 3.0.1 Go app and not 3.0.0? Just to reiterate iSkyUnmannedSys, the switch to Auto during the lens calibration is normal.

Yes I did try the most up to date app version, It had the same AUTO switching problem. It also has much worse image transmission problems with the slave controller. So we rolled back to 2.9.1. On a side note, I have also tried the slave on an I-Pad Mini 4, and while it generally feels less buggy it still switched camera settings to AUTO when the craft is powered down or the video link is interrupted momentarily.
