    In this video: starting at the 11:24 mark he tried to hand catch it, but the sensor(s) detected his hand/arm/body causing the Mavic to fly upwards. On his second attempt, instead of holding his hand/arm above his head, he held it out in front (at eye level or lower), thus increasing the potential of the props contacting his face.

    So, what is the expected discharge level to reach the 20/27 minutes of battery life? It looked like his battery started at like 3 and after 10 minutes he was at 30%?

    I get the concern, but I don't see any big deal here. Looks like he did a fine, safe job of hand caching his Mavic. I'm sure he was cognizant of what he was doing.

    Between the hand catch attempts, did he turn off the VPS? I kinda like the idea of hand launch and recovery.

    All you need to do is adjust where you hold it from and you are golden

    I predict too many inexperienced people will try this...resulting in lacerations to fingers and faces, or worse.

    Oh yes!
    The guy in the video wont have his Mavic for very long anyway if he keeps turning on the aircraft in his hand and moving/placing down while the IMU's are initialising.
    I give it maybe a week.....:p
