Fly around 100ft no birds no obstacles just really bright sun. When heading into sun my MP’s collision avoidance activated several times. Anyone experience similar issue?

To work around that issue, either disable obstacle avoidance or don't fly directly toward the sun (if possible).

Oh yeah, well known issue. If you can, if filming, try to see if you can adjust your gimbal angle a bit, and recompose your shot. Sometimes it doesn't take much to get rid of the sun bits/light scattering into the camera, and you might be able to fly your path.

Or just wait till the sun changes position.

Totally normal. Nothing to worry about. Just need to adjust to your conditions like msinger was saying.
