    on several occasions litchi has begun to land the phantom for no clear reason. It gives the option to cancel landing. Battery strength has not been an issue and I was in Normal Fpv mode, the drone was close by as well. This prevented me from doing a waypoints mission. Any one with ideas? I just hope it never does this in the middle of a waypoints mission.

    Please analyze logs for getting the clue. There has to be a reason for it to land.

    I don't. It's happened several times. I'm still familiarizing myself with analyzing flight logs

    It appears that for some reason the Mode is changing to AutoLanding. Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks in advance. (basically in this short flight, I flew the phantom to about 150 ft then it started to land so I canceled the landing but it started to do it again. I eventually landed it by myself.

    Please advise us what you were flying, where you were launching, and what direction you were heading.
