    During my last flight with P4, I saw few times on the DJI Go app the message "Warning: [GPS]data exception (In Flight) (Using)".
    First time I came across such warning. Anybody knows what that is?

    I hope someone can explain it because I've been getting it a few times myself. Thanks for posting.

    I am not certain but think I read it was either something in sports mode, or indoors and prop tilts or something. I would check the forums, but think it was more outdoors, in the sports mode, and too forward tilt of the rotors.

    I got this yesterday, I was in sports mode using Litchi to fly to a spot for a Pano. After I took it out of Sports mode I did not get the message again.

    Warning:[GPS]data exception (In Flight) (Using)

    From "DJI-BladeStrike"
    "All -

    This happens mostly in sports mode. This is due to the angle of the attack of the quad. You see you still have a high number but those are a mix of GPS and GLONASS systems. I wouldn't worry to much since one you slow down or decrease the angle of attack you will regain lock immediately. "

    I think this is right concerning sports mode....I've had it happen a couple of times, both times when flying fast forward...presumably the GPS receiver is tilted too much to gain accurate info.

    Same here with Litchi app. Dont use polar pro light set at night, it kills the gps signal also
