    The Phantom 4 can only see obstacles that are in front of it.

    If you enable those individual settings, your aircraft will do exactly as described in your screenshot above.

    Any suggestions? I don't frequently hit things but have been using Litchi app and VR goggles. May be a good idea.
    Thanks a lot for your help

    I'd suggest you keep them enabled. For most people, obstacle avoidance is going to be most handy when the Phantom is too low upon a fail safe RTH.

    Be aware also that when enabled your speed is also limited and it does not work while in Sport mode.

    I have seen some posts and videos in this forum about the OA working with Litchi, providing the speed set is no more than the one stipulated by DJI for the OA to work properly, I believe about 32 km/h.
