Just got a phantom 4 Pro, I was testing out some flight modes and was using Point of interest mode, thought I had plenty of height, as it circled it ran into a tree and fell, Can someone tell me when using point of interest mode or other modes does it deactivate Obstacle avoidance.
Thanks

Side obstacle detection doesn't work in POI. it only works in beginner and tripod. Make sure you read the manual n the DJI site.

Forward and rear OA works in normal flight modes.
It's just the side sensors that don't.
If your Phantom is flying forwards or backwards the OA will work subject to the usual limitations .

Here's a question. If I'm using the ActiveTrack profile it will stay to one side and you can control which side it stays on. If you're on rough terrain the lower height sensors should still work and keep it from losing altitude if you were to move by a hill, correct?

Good One ? I Think Using Beginers Mode is Nice To Try also.Since The bird Is Always Moving Sideways & Not To far Away.! but what about uneven terrain ? Its Raining today . Will Try It later.
