Can't find warning in flight log

I was flying today. I got a warning alert sound and couldn't move forward. I could not clearly see the warning on the screen. It was red like a collision warning, but I was at 200 ft so I don't think that was it. I tried looking at the flight record data in Phantom Helper's DJI Flight Log Viewer and in Airdata UAV, but didn't see any warnings that would cause me to be unable to fly forward.

I attached my Flight Record. Can someone tell me what happened? And help me figure out how to find the warning myself?

The Spark does not like flying straight against the sun.
Obstacle avoidance will/can stop your bird.
It's a known problem with no other solution than disabling OA.
I do not think the OA warning shows in the log.

Was you flying towards the sun?

Thanks! Good to know about flying towards the sun, but I had the sun at my back. I think I'm going to have to go back to the same place and try to reproduce the problem. This time I will remember sunglasses and my sunshade for the controller so I can see the screen.

I checked your sun, and correctly, it was behind you.
But upon checking your area, there is two small airports nearby.
Have you been at this location before and without warning messages?

I would try to open the flightlog in the dji go4 app, and replay the flight in realtime. Any messages displayed during your flight is supposed to show up in there. But keep attention to the screen. The message may only be displayed for a couple of seconds.. ;)
