    As soon as I take off, I'm getting a Warning Motor Idling: (Propeller Loose or Missing). I verified all props are properly installed. I have recalibrate IMU and problem still occurres as soon as I take off. Issue does not appear while Mavic is at idle - only once I take off.

    Try removing the props and checking the motors with your hands, do they all feel the same? , rotate each one and feel the bearings, give a gentle pull up and does one move more than the others ?

    Do they all sound the same ,check they are fitted correctly, no damage ect.

    Checked everything as mentioned and no issues were present. Bought some electronic cleaner (air) and blew out the motors. Will try to fly again tomorrow to see if that changes anything.

    Take a video for proof.. then DJI will notice it ..and probably contact you .. as they would be concerned too..

    Have you mounted the right prop to the motor?

    It's not possible to mount a prop on the wrong motor. When you push the prop down and twist it to lock it into place, the prop will not twist if it's on the wrong motor.

    Yes all props are properly installed and flights appear to have no issues. No abnormal temps from the motors post flight, no issues other than warning appearing on screen as soon as the Mavic takes off.

    Thx

    I don't have Mavic, so can't go deeper. Waiting to win a lottery.

    I am also having this problem with a brand new Mavic. Did you ever solve it?

    No resolution to the issue. Been in contact with DJI - customer service just keeps repeating to recalibrate the Mavic.

    Yeah, they had me recalibrate everything a number of times. I'm refreshing the firmware after a factory reset now.

    Just spent a while on with support. I ended up making a video to show the problem (at their request). It is messy, but here it is, in case you want to see if it's the same:



    They are sending me a replacement ... we'll see how long that takes ... (pretty frustrating given that it took a month and a half to get the first one and I spent a few hours convincing them that there is a problem).
