According to the article below, GPS-equipped devices may experience problems on Aprith the 6th:


https://www.zdnet.com/article/so ... n-or-after-april-6/

''April sees the GPS network go through a mini "millennium bug" of its own  because the week number will roll back to a zero. While this is a known  issue arising from the way the system works, it's recommended that  those in charge of critical infrastructure which make use of GPS, along  with other businesses and users who believe a malfunction would result  in problems, to prepare for the event.''

I take it Mavic Pro and other DJI devices are ready for this?

I assume flying in atti mode wouldn't be an issue?

The problem would not be an ATTI mode, but the drone getting valid GPS coordinates, that tell it that it deviated from the course by, say, 1000km. That can lead to a fly-away...

I hope DJI would come with a more specific assuarance that their drones have this switch covered.

I didn't realize that. Thank you for the clarification.
