    First - I have read and research the prior threads on this topic. I had the latest OS when I installed my DJI Go App to begin with. I have tried to remove and then reinstall the DJI Go App (Tripod mode worked the very next flight). I cant seem to get Tripod mode to consistently be a flight mode option during every flight. Some flights after take off its there as an option and other flights it is not. I have all sensors enabled. I have calibrated everything at this point. There is no consistent reason I can figure out why some flights its available and others it is not.
    1) is it only available when you check your flight modes close to ground?
    2) I noticed once in tripod mode, the few times it appeared, I couldn't hit the 5 way button to bring up my flight modes at all, nothing happened. I had to switch to sport mode to force it out of tripod mode and then turn off sport mode to get to normal flight mode (while in the air).
    3) I am not getting any errors and as I said I have tried all the prior tricks of iOS upgrades / reinstalling DJI Go App
    4) I reached out to DJI support chat, and after some time and checking all they could tell me is they don't have a solution and keep an eye out for future DJI Go App / firmware updates.

    Am I alone in this issue?

    BTW - at this point of posting I am happy to say there are no other issues with the Mavic and EVERYTHING else is working great.

    The only time I have not been able to enter Tripod mode is when I was either not in the air or in sport mode. I am also on iOS (latest) using the latest DJI Go app. Make sure you have good GPS signal and are not in ATTI mode.
