    So when I first got the Mavic I easily found the tripod mode with all the other Flight modes. But now I am having problems locating it... anyone know where in the DJI GO app I enable tripod mode?

    UPDATE-
    So the only fix that is confirmed to work for this so far is to delete the DJI Go App and reinstall it. Try that first.

    Did you swipe to the second flight mode screen?

    There's a settings option for extended flight modes or something along those lines. Is that checked?

    Make sure you have the gps and I think it was ground detection mode on. I believe that will prevent you from having that mode

    Please send the Mavic to me and let me troubleshoot the issue for you. I'll send it back once I've located the tripod mode... :rolleyes:

    I thought Tripod Mode was also beneficial for indoor flying. No GPS, so will that still work?

    I think you'll find you actually have to be airborne to select the mode. You can't access it from a table top.
    (I maybe wrong though - I normally am)

    Are you on an iOS device? Someone posted elsewhere that they updated the DJI GO app to version 3.0.2 and the tripod mode returned.
    Also make sure you're not in sport mode.

    You should be able to see Tripod mode when your Mavic is on the ground -- like this:

    Indoor flying still works. Tried that as well.

    Thanks for your reply. I do have a iOS device and I checked to make sure the DJI go app is updated. As well as not in sport mode.

    You force killed the DJI Go App and and rebooted your device as a first step I imagine?
