    As I wait for my Mavic to show up, something occurred to me. Maybe I missed this somewhere but I was wondering what happens when your phone rings while you're flying and you're using your phone as the display?

    The same thing as when you're using other apps. The Mavic is flown with the remote controller, so an interruption in the DJI GO app will not interrupt your flight. You can put your phone in airplane mode so the calls don't bother you.

    Yeah that's what I figured. I just didn't know if the app automatically puts it in airplane mode or that's something you have to do manually. Can't have those pesky calls come in while I'm flying. Thanks for the info.

    If you put the phone in Airplane mode that would stop 3G/4G cellular connectivity. Is that ok with the app?
    Wouldn't be 3G/4G necessary for downloading maps etc?

    Maybe, Do Not Disturb (DND) on iphones could be another option?

    Now it gets trickier when you're flying in wifi mode without the controller.

    Yup, but let's hope your phone doesn't randomly reboot or the app doesn't freeze mid flight.

    With the DJI GO app if you know were you are going to fly you can cache the map in the app before you set off so you don't need to download when flying.

    Another thing to consider is overtemping your phone. A buddy of mine was flying his Autel X-Star one day in the direct Las Vegas sun and his iPad overheated. Luckily he was still LOS and just hit the RTH button and it came back.

    I have gotten text messages when I fly my Mavic. Annoying, but the app still works.

    I got an incoming FaceTime call while RTH (I believe) and my Mavic paused in mid air.

    I have no idea why anyone would not put their device in airplane mode whilst flying.
    One, you should have as least distractions as possible and concentrate on your aircraft
    Two, there is a possibility that the cellular signal (if amplitude is ramped) of the phone handshaking with a cell site could swamp the front end of the Mavic remote RX.
    Three, if the App crashes/closes (possibly due to taking an incoming call/text/FaceSpace garbage it can in some circumstances take a few seconds for the USB port to release - this can temporarily hold up control via the remote to your aircraft.

    Mitigate the risks - put it in airplane mode.

    But what if someone updates their facebook status and I miss it? Then what?
