    I just upgraded last night to latest firmware but I tried OA while flying in the Litchi app and it did not seem to work within 24" of a structure. I had asked Litchi on their FB page a few weeks ago as I was concerned about this and they said "in P mode, if enabled in DJI Go, yes". Well it does not seem to work for me and I have asked them again in FB. Has anyone else tried it?

    Ok so this is right from the Litchi manual. I guess no OA.

    4. Will the aircraft avoid obstacles if there are any?

    No, always be aware of your surroundings when using any of the autonomous flight modes, the aircraft will

    not avoid obstacles should there be any.

    Apparently, it didn't work for me as well. I had my first P4 crash today and I am certain it was because the obstacle avoidance did NOT work. I created a flight plan which would take the drone down the length (over) a bridge. I thought I had the altitude high enough as I have flown this partially before. Although the recording was enabled the file was corrupted in the crash. Therefore, it is impossible for me to know for certain if the drone hit the bridge (which after looking at the flight plan from the website- is most likely the case) or if flew into a bird. Fortunately, the drone came down onto the bridge and not the river. Not finding any feathers or blood on the drone, I am thinking it hit the bridge. That being the case, proves that the obstacle avoidance does not work while using the litchi app. Lesson learned.
