    Hi All,

    Is there a way to disable the obstacle avoidance feature? I'm filming a shot where I want to get real close to the actor, standing on the edge of a cliff, and I want to move out to this brilliant perspective, but the OA won't let me get close enough to my subject.

    Any help would be great, thanks.

    You can disable it in the "Visual Navigation Settings" section of DJI GO.

    Be very careful.
    I'll bet this pilot wishes he had obstacle avoidance:

    I would use prop guards if I wanted to get close to people. Guards are not fail proof but help. Syotr's video is proof that bad things can happen, I bet she can spell law suit.
