Hey guys, DJI Grace here! Today and for the days coming up, I’d like to share with you a series of threads designed to be a comprehensive manual for DJI GO 4. I'm hoping these help you during your flights since there isn’t currently a guide like this from us.
The following part origins from:  BUYING GUIDE


Introduction:
This DJI Go 4 manual will cover the various settings and functions within the DJI GO 4  app for drone operation which can be used as a standalone remote controller for the Spark and Mavic Pro or in conjunction with a remote controller for the Phantom 4 Series, Inspire 2 and the Spark and Mavic. Overall, the app is the gateway to your drone’s settings, so it’s important to understand how the settings work and what they do.
Note this DJI Go 4 manual is focused around Phantom 4 Pro, Mavic, Spark and Inspire 2. Due to different functions of the aircraft some of the screenshots of DJI Go 4 show settings that are available to only certain drones. To save prevent any confusion the aircraft dependent settings are tagged with the aircraft’s name.


DJI Go 4 Manual Contents:  
(the ones not underlined mean they're still to be updated.)
Visual Navigation Settings
Camera Settings


Camera View:

You will spend most of your time here when flying your drone as this is your drone’s view of the area in front of it. The icons around the side of the screen will take you to different settings when tapped.
  • System Status: This icon indicates aircraft flight status and displays various warning messages.
  • Obstacle Detection Status: Red bars are displayed when obstacle are close to the aircraft. Orange bars are displayed when obstacles are in detection range.
  • Battery Level Indicator: The battery level indicator provides a dynamic display of the battery level. The coloured zones on the battery level indicator represent the power levels needed to carry out different functions.
  • Flight Mode: The text next to this icon indicated the current flight mode. Tap to configure the MC (Main Controller) Settings. These settings allow you to modify flight limits and set gain values
  • GPS Signal Strength: Show the current number of connected GPS satellites.  The white bar indicates adequate GPS signal.
  • 3D Sensing System Status: Tap this icon to enable or disable features provided by the 3D Sensing system
  • Wi-Fi Settings: Tap to enter Wi-Fi settings.
  • Battery Level: This icon shows the current battery level. Tap to view the battery information menu, set the various battery warnings threshold, and view the battery warning history
  • General Settings: Tap to enter the general settings menu for settings, metrics, enabling live streaming, and displaying flight routes and so on
  • Gimbal Slide: Displays the pitch of the gimbal
  • Photo/Video Toggle: Tap to switch between photo and video recording modes.
  • Shoot/Record Button: Tap to start shooting photos or recording video.
  • Camera Settings: Tap to enter camera settings menu
  • Playback: tap to enter the Playback page and preview the photos and videos as soon as they are captured.
  • Flight Telemetry
  • Virtual Joystick Switch
  • Intelligent Flight Mode: Tap to select Intelligent Flight mode
  • Smart RTH: Initiate RTH procedure. Tap to have the aircraft return to the last recorded home point
  • Auto Take Off/ Landing: Tap to initiate auto take-off or landing
  • Back: Tap this icon to return to the main menu.


System Status:
When you enter camera mode this bar will be one of three colours red, yellow or green. If the bar is green then it means you have a strong GPS connection and it is safe to fly. If it is yellow then it means to fly with caution as the drone may be in ATTI mode meaning it doesn’t have enough GPS signal to maintain a stable position. Finally, if the bar is red it means the drone can’t fly and it will prompt you to take action to fix this situation.
If you tap on the status bar you’ll see an overview of the aircraft systems as follows:

Compass: This lets the drone know where it is and sometimes needs to be recalibrated when you fly from a new location. Pay attention to this as the compass can very easily be disrupted by electromagnetic interference.
IMU (Inertia Measurement Unit): Basically this is a barometer and a gyroscope used by the drone to see its attitude and angle when flying. If DJI Go 4 prompts you to recalibrate it, follow the onscreen instructions.
ESC (Electronic Speed Control) Status: This will tell you if there is a problem with your motors. If you see a warning try resetting your drone, if the warning won’t go away then you’ll need to send your drone in for repair.
Vision Sensors: These are the sensors that check for obstacles when you’re flying. It is strongly recommended that you keep these turned on at all times.
Obstacle Detection Status: This is a visual warning that pops up on your screen when your drone detects that it is close to an obstacle.


Battery Level Indicator:

This shows you how much power your battery has left. The line gets shorter as the battery power is depleted. The first dot on the left is when the drone will automatically land due to low power. The second dot is when the app will try to activate RTH unless you stop it. The yellow H represent your home point and moves along the line to show how much power you will need to get your drone back home.


Flight Mode:
There are 3 flight modes that can be displayed in the DJI Go 4 app:
Positioning mode (P-MODE): P Mode is when all the drones’ sensors are active, so the drone should always be stable. This is the safest mode to the fly the drone in as if you take your hands off the control sticks then the drone will automatically break and then hover in position.
Attitude or ATTI mode (A-MODE): The aircraft will switch to ATTI mode if there is no GPS signal or it is weak and it is too dark for the Vision Systems to work. The aircraft will only maintain its altitude, but it will drift.
Sport mode (S-Mode): In Sports Mode, your drone can fly at full speed while using GPS for positioning. However, the forward and downward vision systems will be disabled, so they aircraft won’t be able to sense and avoid obstacles. Last but not least Ground Station and Intelligent Flight functions are not available.

Great job dji Grace, do you think we might get a manual explaining some of the warning pop ups. I.E. speed error yaw error and so many more that users are left to their own devices to figure out?

Keep up the good work you are doing a great job.

The real help for the "non english speaking" market would be THE TRANSLATION OF THE SOFTWARE...

Not only the soft is in english... now a fixed entry of the forum offers an ENGLISH tutorial... jejejejeje

I have no doubt it would be of help to the "english newbes", but we (the "others") are still waiting for something as basic on this times as a "languaje selection" in the app (not only english and chinese, but spanish, french, italian, portuguese, german, and..........)

Hey, Gabto
I totally got what you mean and your desire.
there is "REGIONAL" section on our forum, and I know not so many people talk or discuss there.
We are improving on that, please don't be worried.
As for the tutorials, you could create a thread or poll to appeal our users on the forum, we may choose the top three language to provide alternative copies?
Is this will be ok?
If you have any good ideas, just freely to contact me.
Regards,
Grace

Aloha Grace,

     Mahalo for the great job!  My apologies for not posting this "Mahalo Nui Loa!" sooner, but I have been reading your work.  I look at it and suddenly, I am out of time!  This is a very helpful format because the links allow you to get your specific information without looking for so long.  The .pdf format will allow us to use it on the "fly" as they say.

     Mahalo again!

Aloha and Drone On!
