Okay I think I know what this is I could not find much information about the notifcation but can anyone chime in?

I have gotten this on my M2P a few times, always when it's been pretty windy.

To put simply, it just means the drone is "tilting" excessively in one direction (this is part of how goes forwards/backwards/side-to-side) and the sensors on board are not able to accurately see obstacles in the way because they are pointing too far up or down. Not much to be concerned about in most cases if you are not relying on obstacle avoidance to replace your own vision. Usually you get it in either Sport Mode or when it is a little windy as would be the case here.

It means the drone has tilted so much that the backwards sensors are no longer pointed backwards and therefore not effective to prevent collisions.

Thank you, my thinking is maybe it was coming back into the wind and tilted nose down a little too much. It was windy I did get a few high wind velocity warnings and that is why I was bringing her back.  

When this happens am I in danger of a stall? That is my main concern. I was in P mode and I have noticed that even in P mode she will build speed aggressively (nose down) and almost stand straight up and down when I stop her.

This is a very normal error if flying into strong winds

Hi, Sorry for the inconvenience. I would recommend flying your aircraft in an advisable environment to prevent an incident. You can re-calibrate the IMU and compass as well to see if the issue will persist. Thank you for the support.

Hi, Thanks for your response. I mean do the brief troubleshooting and fly in an advisable environment and weather to see if the issue will persist.

I believe the MPP  motors will shutoff if the AC  is inclined at an angle of approximately 70 degrees. I scanned (not read every word) the User Manual V2.0 and I did not see it mentioned.

My question is does the Mavic 2 Pro have such a function and what is the approximate angle?

You won’t stall as the lift is generated by the rotors not by the forward motion of flight. Forward flight does generate some lift as the approaching blade will be travelling faster through the air than the trailing blade, but not enough to have any noticeable effect, due to the high rotational speed of the rota in relation to the air in which it is flying.

I have flown the MP2 in very gusty winds and it copes well with it. The sensors will give warnings if the aircraft needs to tilt to maintain forward flight. I haven’t established what angle that is but it’s not really an issue.

There is no angle where the motors would shut off. They always keep running.
There is a funny thread in the Mavicpilots forum where some guy crashed his M2P and it ended up on it's back with the motors still spinning eventually cutting one of his fingers badly ;-)

There is no way the M2P can stall.  It may be blown away though if you fly in too strong winds.
Even then it will keep its balance while it is sailing away from you ;-)

I usually fly in the open and always have obstacle avoidance off.
The messages popping up are disturbing me, esp. in sports mode.

I presume you are referring to the M2 series aircraft.
Apparently the MP/MPP will shutoff whether by design or accident.

I think its a  bit more compacted than just the angle. My MP switches the motors off when I crashed it into a wall indoors and landed almost full inverted on a box of beer bottles. But i think it was due to attitude and that it stopped moving that caused the motor power off.

Cheers

Most any MP or MPP thread on hand retrieval will give tilting approximately 70° or more to shut off the motors.  
The motors will also turn off the motors if the flight controller has a critical error.
I wasn't there when you had your unfortunate crash but when I had mine the MPP tumbled after it also hit a wall. I know the motors had stopped before it dropped less than 4'. The speed at impact was only one or two miles an hour. The only damage was 1 prop, gimbal ribbon cable and arm pivot point.

However on the M2P mavicpilots forum there has been more than one case where the AC did not shutoff after a crash and landing on it's back.

That is why I have been trying to find out if "the angle" of shutoff is an oversight/accident or programmed in for the MP/MPP.
