My phantom has been saved many times because of the forward and backward obstacle avoidance feature. However, in which modes do the lateral ( left and right side) sensors work? How do I activate them?

Oh dont rely on them always,front sensors or monocular cams(proper name) can be affected when flying direct into sun,not 100% safe but do work,,,side sensers

The side sensors are only on the Phantom 4 Pro and like Ianzone said, only work in beginner and tripod mode.

I learnt the lesson yesterday. Had my P4P close to a huge cypress tree and flew sideways towards it, expecting it would stop. It crashed into it. Luckily it fell on the hedges below (drop of about 15 meters!), and zero damage. I could have lost the drone if it had fallen in a different place.

Tripod or beginners mode only for side sensors. Learned that the hard way- from 80’ up and a grabby tree...
