    I thought tripod mode was for flying indoors. I tried tonight, but when I tried to tap the tripod mode button on the screen, it said "cannot enter intelligent flight modes in ATTI mode." I don't get it.

    Tripod mode requires GPS, which is not available indoors. You are just relying on vision sensors. However flying indoors is an accident waiting to haooen

    **** I was hoping to use tripod mode next week while filming an empty gym. Big task ceilings

    It will work in Opti mode. Make sure your downward vision sensors are on indoors. It only works up to around 30 feet or so.

    Did you read the manual? Before coming off like a **** maybe you should take your own advice....

    "Only use Tripod Mode where the GPS signal is strong OR LIGHT CONDITIONS ARE IDEAL FOR THE VISION SYSTEM"

    Yes, make sure you have adequate light for the visual sensors to work.

    Actually, Tripod mode doesn't require GPS. Opti mode works just as well. I flew mine in the basement 3 times already. Just turn on all the lights first.
