I emailed this same note to dji support today and hoping for any help here on the forum:

Immediate and rapid descent when backward stick is only input. I have calibrated vsp twice and imu three times. Unit flies correctly after calibration but after a short time during each flight the problem will reoccur.

Perhaps the Air is different, but on the MP backward left stick in the default setting does cause a rapid descent.

EDIT: I am guessing by "backward stick" you mean the right stick that should make the Mavic move backward. Sometimes I type before I think.

Yes. I started to use “reverse “ instead of “backward “ but either way I know it can be confusing when I mean backward flight with right stick input in mode2.

Update
MA was replaced under warranty with a different MA.

The replacement MA exhibited the exact same problem when pulling back right stick in mode 2.

DJI said to return it to repair, which I did.

The “replacement” MA was repaired under warranty and returned to me yesterday.
