Problem?
I've watched YouTube videos where people turn their mavic air on and press the back button twice to place drone in smartcapture mode. Without connecting to a device or controller. They press it twice and it beeps. Mine will not do this. Any ideas on why?

Was unit in a crash?
No


What have you tried so far?
See above. Several YouTube videos depict how this works on their Air but it will not on mine.


What device are you using ( iphone , ipad, Samsung , etc)?
I don't want to use a device to get into smartcapture mode


What firmware are you running ( aircraft, remote controller)?
Not sure where to find this info?


What Go app version are you using?
Dji 4.2.16 but I am not using the app just trying to use the drone itself for this

Any modification?
(if so what)
None

Did you change anything or install any apps? (if so what)
No. Just started flying. New pilot with new drone


Many thanks in advance for your help

Hi,
Do you have your controller or DJI GO app running? I am not sure but this double press of function button might work only if both are turned off. And you need to wait until the drone boots up and catches GPS signal. Led should blink only green. This double press gesture mode activation works only with updated firmware.
