Flying the Mavic Air, why does it stop me at 15' and says altitude limit reached, and then when you move it lets you go anyway?
Maybe I missed this somewhere.

The most likely explanation is on p48 of your manual:
Height is restricted to 16 feet (5 meters) when the GPS signal is weak and Downward Vision System is activated.
Are you indoors or somewhere else that's blocking GPS satellite reception?

That must be it. I have been flying for a year from the same locations, and new construction is taking place and I am recording time lapse photos of the site.
The WIFI has changed there, but from my home I had not had that happen before and it is now.
Thanks for the replies.
