    Hi,i am having an issue with the mavic randomly flying very slowly!
    Wind isnt the issue as today there is no wind at all. Sometimes when i push the stick all the way forward the mavic tootles along at 10-12 kmph. If i turn the mavic around it travels 20+ kmph? Anyone else having this issue?

    It has to be the wind. It doesn't take much

    Also, some of us have been experiencing an issue with the front OA sensors recognizing the sun as an obstacle when flying directly towards it. This occurrence would lead you to believe that you're flying slow. Check your display and see if the OA warning is on when this "slow flying" occurs.

    You have to remember the wind speed at altitude can be very different than that of the wind speed on the ground

    Hi i totally understand what your saying but wind was not the factor at the time,after it flew slowly i turned 180 and flew in the opposite direction for a few seconds and the mavic flew at normal speed. I then turned back to the direction i was going having not altered height at all then it flew at the correct speed again!
    Since my issues with this problem yesterday afternoon and this morning i did a imu recalibration and have flown it three times this afternoon at two locations and it has not done it since and the wind has picked up a little since this morning.

    I've had this issue as well I flew out about a mile then I was flying back and at around 2000 feet out at an altitude of 250 or so. I was flying at around 20-25 Mph then for 30 sec or so it was only doing 1 Mph then back to 20. No wind and not in tripod mode.

    Flown again this morning for about 15mins,no problems again. Fingers crossed it was just the imu that for some reason needed recalibration again.
