What function do I disable to safely fly over water? How to change on remote? Many thanks.
VPS. And since your next question is going to be how:

Think ahead-- I like that!
In the Android app there are no options like this version 1.10
Can't see the image above but in Android it's settings, the drone icon and then Advanced (because having it under "sensors" wide be confusing).
That pilot all for Android if so confusing. I never know where to go to review/change settings
I think they released un update today on the Android and it is supposed to be in the Play Store
Nope still not in the new version for android
You have to be connected to the quad to see it.
Finally!!! been nice if DJI would have added this to the manual. Thanks for Sharing
Maybe I've been lucky so far, but I've flown at 35mph, 5 feet off the surface of a lake several times with VPS on--am I missing something?
Most of my flights have been over water with no problems- why switch off the VPS? I never have.
Honestly, i am in the same mood.
Good find. I'm on iOS, but they're mostly the same.
I like to fly over water as well but was scared vow would get screwed up from optical sensors reflecting off water. I'm thinking it's better to be safe than sorry by turning it off but haven't gotten a chance. I would like to hear from people leaving it on if they've seen any odd behavior with it close over the water?
I just flew low over a lake again this afternoon--no issues. I don't believe the optical sensor is used for height control anyway--more for position hold, like what an optical mouse uses. In any case, I've noticed that ultrasound seems to give a pretty accurate height reading off the water. Yeah, it's still a little nerve-wracking flying 50mph (from a 15mph tail wind) 5 feet off the water, as if something does go wrong, you'll have no time to react.
But the rush ..
If you're outdoors, you'll have GPS. You won't need VRS which is for indoors only. I'd switch it off.
