In order to fly your drone you need 6 satellites, because these aircraft use both glonass and gps a satellite count 11 should give you just enough to fly. Ie 6x gps 5x glonass so while it tells you it has 11 it may only be using 6.
At 12 you should be ok but might be getting warning of weak gps or you might even be getting compass problem which will cause Aircraft to go to Atti mode.
