DJI Mavic causing Futaba Lockout

Hi to all,

A friend got his Bandit in failsafe in flight during a DJI Mavic startup. DJI owner cancelled startup and plane was saved. After landing he did the following test:

DJI Mavic - Futaba startup lockout (2 min 7 sec)

Multiple frames lost and a lockout. He started Mavic before the Mavic TX and this is not standard according to Mavic manual.

Some guys were able to reproduce this results with other plane/Mavic. With a FASST 6014 receiver some packets were lost (because of led blinking) but not failsafe. Another test with FASStest R7008 and no powerbox to check packages lost went no failsafe.

Spektrum went flawless on same test:
DJI Mavic - Spektrum startup (0 min 54 sec)

Jeti flawless too:
