Flying my zoom today I had a message flash up Aircraft Detection Fly With Caution! (in Red) never seen this one before. There was a couple people flying a fixed wing bird close by could it be that? I looked at the logs and the message does not show, anyone no what I was seeing?

Hi Bart B, thanks for bringing this query to us. We apologize for having troubles recently. We suggest avoiding flying near the above-mentioned areas. Would it be possible to fly in a different place and see if the issue persists? Kindly reach us again if you have concerns. Thank you.

Thanks DJI Gamora Let me clarify, the fixed wing I referenced was an RC with a 3'-4' wing span, question more or less was will the Mavic2 Zoom pick up a aircraft transponder in the area? There is a good possibility the RC Plane had one.

Bart,

The error you got is only supposed to be available on the new Mavic 2 Enterprise... The new DJI Pilot app, along with the drone, was showcased as having an aircraft detection system so M2E operators could more easily avoid manned aircraft during operations.

This is the first instance I’ve heard of a Mavic 2 Zoom pilot receiving this message!

Do you own the Enterprise or Zoom, and were you using GO 4 or Pilot as your control app?

I have the zoom and was using DJI Go4,  I'll keep an eye out for it again and run screen record to capture the message.

Both times I received the message I was close to the fixed wing UAV

How does it detect other aircraft?

Obviously it seems to be detecting other aircraft and even if it’s limited to the enterprise model, how does it know and how does it detect.. is it using radar or passively sensing radar/RF off of other aircraft?

i been reading its a passive system simply picking up the transponder/squawk boxes in aircraft and some RC enthusiasts add similar systems to their fired wing aircraft to alert manned aircraft of their presence just in case.    i wonder confused how it knew was another aircraft nearby

however integrating this feature into mavic air, mavic 2 series and existing older drones via a dji go 4 update seems trivial considering transponder location info is fairly open things commonly tracked online and public and with a connected phone/tablet probably fairly easy to cross reference things, it may nto be real time but some sources update info every few seconds which, i mean..close enough
