Second flight fails

Hello

Just recently every flight I take for a mission the first flight goes flawlessly. When I change battery for the second flight it goes up stops and just stays in 1 location. I had two drones on hand and tried the same thing happended. I checked the log files and there are no errors that indicate any issues. I used the app 3 or 4 weeks with no complications. I think the update 3 days ago has a bug when using IOS 16.6.1.

It looks like you were making a lot of manual stick adjustments which kicks you out of the automated flight mode. This makes it so things get out of sync. After this occurs you need to carefully inspect the blue verification line when defining the waypoints. If it is not going back to the abandonment point correctly you will need to use the Manual Restarting Point feature to pick a new place to start back up.

You can tell this is happening in the flight logs on the Maps Made Easy site where it says "Switched Out of Flight Mode" : Yes. 

Also, keep an eye on the Aircraft Errors panel. You had a LOT of wind warnings going on which is never good with virtual stick flight.

Thanks for the quick response Zane

There's still something strange going on, I only initiated manual on landing just to get the drone on the ground quicker. Or to see if I still had control of the drone when it stopped before reaching the starting point for the second flight. Which is my normal practice and hasn't caused me any issues in the past. Yeh I felt the same about the wind but I have a very short window to do these flights so I pushed it, yesterday was a much better day for flying. So are you saying manual landing throws the sync out on the next flight? Thanks again for the quick response.

Yes, that is what I am saying. It is either let it land on its own so it stays in sync or manually adjust the starting point if the blue line isn't correct. It has always been like this.

Ok thanks again Zane

I'll start manually adjusting start point. As mentioned I always land manually especially in snowy conditions to avoid landing the mini in snow. It's funny this has never happened before though. Have a great day and really appreciate the answers on a Sunday.
