Description

Vision systems rely on a certain amount of light to function properly. When your environment is too dark, the vision sensors will not be able to see and avoid obstacles.

In addition, the hovering stability of the aircraft may be negatively affected as the vision system plays a large role in keeping the drone stable.

What issue did you have with hovering? My Mavic 3 Pro has a night mode and I am just learning some night flight skills. With the lights on the drone and my 3 nm light beacon it is very easy to follow. I haven't had any issues with the hoving yet.

My comment is over two years old. There were quite a few issues back then, especially if the aircraft had no AUX light on the bottom.
