Hi guys/ DJI

While getting myself acquainted with the Mavic I've noticed the the forward vision sensors 'detect' an obstacle when flying 'into the sun' ....

Is that expect behavior?

It doesn't really seem to affect things for now... but I'm curious to hear if it's normal.

Thanks.

I've seen this error from several people. You may also get a similar error in complete darkness.

I wouldn't call it an "error" - the manual clearly states that the small front cameras will only work between 300 and 10000 lux.

When pointed directly towards the sun they'll simply be "blinded by the light"...

The bright sun sets off the Mavic's object avoidance system.

DJI Ken has told me this is normal in another post. He said if you are clear of any structures that could effect your flight and don't require the system,  then turn the OA off.
