First time poster, long time reader.

My Mavic Pro is doing something weird. I entered active track and filmed for a while while riding the lawnmower (exciting, I know!). I then went back to normal flight mode and came in for a landing. When I landed, the drone just landed, without doing the usual safety check and landing slowly.

I tbought that it was strange so I changed the battery and sent it up again to check it out. When I went up, I didn't see the front distance radar and the ground clearance on the controller displays "clearance: - -". Held my hand under it and it did nothing, it did not ascend like it should. When I click on the main entry page, everything is normal. Vision sensor state is normal.

Then I went back into active track. It allows me to draw the square, but then does nothing, it does not lock on, the square just vanishes. Same with quickshots and tap and fly. Tripod mode and the rest works just fine.

Then I thought I should try to calibrate the sensors. Before I can start the calibration, i get an error next to the button, "please reboot the aircraft". I reboot and it keeps giving me the error. Then I tried to install assistant in driver enforcement mode which solved everyone else's problem, but mine! Still get the error. Tried on windows 10 and windows 7. I do not have access to Mac.

I then tried to downgrade the firmware just to update it again to the latest, still no VPS nor Active track and can't calibrate.

I tried doing a reset to factory default, made no difference. Any advice would be appreciated. I am stumped.
