DJI Air 2S error code -1008 upon initiating mission

Testing out Map Pilot Pro with my DJI Air 2S in controlled airspace. Successfully created mission. Successfully worked through permission to fly via DJI Fly and able to fly. Exited/Stopped DJI Fly and entered Map Pilot Pro and able to upload mission to Air 2S. When attempt to start mission receive error message: "DJI Air 2S There was an error executing the command. (code:-1008)". See attached screen capture. What have I missed? Other sites indicate the need to gain authorization through DJI Fly, but I believe I have that covered.

The NFZ stuff is pretty complicated. If you have issues like taking off you could try flying with the DJI app open.

Were you able to take off and fly around using the DJI app?

When you get authorization to fly an area it is loaded into the aircraft which is what makes the decision of whether it can take off or not. You need to have all associated air spaces fully cleared. This includes any you will be flying in to. Check your flight altitudes to make sure that none of the zones are going to be flown in to.

I did all that. Cleared to 300 ft. Mission set to 50 m. DJI Fly was able to fly. Could the authorization be deleted when switching to Map Pilot Pro?

I don’t think so. We have never really gotten clarification on what that code means. I bet it you tried it a couple different ways it would take off. Try with the mobile device in airplane mode. Try taking off from a slightly different area. Try hitting the takeoff button in the DJI app.

There are some kinds of no fly zones though that will not allow you to takeoff for any sort of automated flight. There is also no notation that lets you know that this is the case.

I'd tried several different ways earlier today and will try more tomorrow if we get a break in the rain. How would I hit the DJI Fly app Takeoff button if I'm running Map Pilot Pro? What happens if I'm in the air when switching between apps? I have Litchi which used to work fine here and I will check if it still works. Thanks for your suggestions. Will report back.

Checked out Litchi with my Air 2S again today. No problem launching (after DJI Fly used to declare clearance and liability acceptance...) or running a programmed flight path. After Litchi succeeded, I tried Map Pilot Pro again a few times and continued get the "DJI Air 2S There was an error executing the command. (code:-1008)" error message. Map Pilot Pro must use the DJI flight authorization differently than Litchi. Let me know if you have any more suggestions.

Here is how we do it when we test in NFZs:

  1. Go into DJI Fly
  2. Attempt to start up the motors manually
  3. Sign in, accept, agree, consent to any NFZ warnings
  4. Attempt the start up the motors manually (“manually” = sticks down and in)
  5. If successful, close the DJI Fly and go back into MPP without turning drone/rc off
  6. Attempt to start up the motors in MPP manually. 
  7. If successful, stop the motors manually and use Map Pilot Pro. 
  8. If not successful, go back into the DJI app and make sure all applicable zones are unlocked.

 

The goal is to be able to manually start the props when Map Pilot Pro is the main app running. That is the sign that you will be able to take off. The app will still be doing the flying so don't try to take off manually but if you can start the props the automated flight will be able to start.
