    I've had my Mavic for a few weeks now and didn't notice that the plastic pin that holds one of the RC antenna on is missing. I've folded and unfolded these many times and didn't notice until today. My guess is that it wiggled out. I know others have had this part missing. Is this a send it back to DJI thing or a send me the part and put it in myself thing? I don't want to send it back for something so easy to fix.

    I'd put a small bolt through it and let DJI know it has fallen out. Don't want anything fallout out while they send you a new pin (assuming they can).

    Definitely make dji aware of this and see what they tell you and go from there. For now like frisbee said, put something through it to hold it in place.

    Since it is an antenna I would hesitate to use a bolt or metal pin.

    Use a piece of a wooden toothpick

    We must be on the same brainwave. I just sanded down a toothpick to fit in there.

    It looks like DJI will be sending me the small part to replace myself. Glad I don't have to send anything in.
