    He's always the first to take his stuff apart!

    He claims a 29 minute hover, but could probably go more with nearly 8% left!

    The Mavic will be the next long range bird! Tomorrow he's gonna see how far it can go!

    The antenna MOD is pretty bad ***!

    I am more interested in the antenna penetration than the battery addition.

    You guys must be new to the hobby? Sorry for assuming.

    DBS is the king of distance. From a Parrot Drone to the Mavic he usually does this.

    He put two little tiny batteries on this Mavic and I will tell you it can go much further. These usually run out of battery before they run out of signal.

    I like have one for distance and one for regular flying. Remotes I mean

    All of my Phantoms have the DBS antenna mod and I love it.

    Since the Mavic will be my first Drone, when I get it, I should be so lucky to be as good as flyers as most of you experienced seem to be.. For me to try long distance stuff is a long ways down the road. (Pun intended)

    Long distance flying takes some getting used to as you have to put complete trust in the remote, aircraft, and software working in harmony reliably. If not, it will usually just trigger the aircraft's RTH feature. Once you become comfortable setting up waypoint missions and running them you'll feel more confident about sending your aircraft out beyond LOS.

    Was obstacle avoidance turned on? With an avg of 30mph it would suggest it's not...but my mavics goes 30mph with obstacle avoidance on even though it says it's only supposed to go 22mph. Trying to figure out if it actually is going 30 or if the readout is just wrong.

    Unfortunately several have made the above comparison only to find their Mavic's are not as fast as advertised.

    The antenna mod looks impressive but it negates the main wow factor of the Mavic, which is it's portability.

    Maybe, there's a solution that folds it up?
