    I keep having this bug in the latest release of DJI go where it switches me back to metric from imperial when I sometimes start the app.

    It's easy enough to change but I fear if I don't spot it I won't realize my accurate altitude.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Good, we should all use Metric.

    I see the same thing. Growing up on the water my world is in NM and miles. I'd love to see an NM option too.

    Note the FAA uses NM.

    The same thing happened to me a few days ago when I was flying my Inspire 1. After changing it in the DJI GO app mid-flight, all was fine for the remainder of the flight.

    I noticed the same thing yesterday. Any way to provide feedback to their app team?

    For a safe flight it's imperative to check all settings before takeoff.

    They are pretty responsive in their forums. I suspect they might already know though.
