    First Flight Goggles

    Wow, just got them charged and flew once before rain. So, oddly they were at 900 when I got them, along with my controller and Mavic. It asked for the same 900 so I did it. Linked, Activated and Flew ! Amazing.... I do have some light leak but I can figure out a fix. I did notice the...

    Remote Signal Strength Dropoff

    So I’ve had been able to fly a good distance. I have paid very close attention to my remote signal and have seen it drop by 2 bars at the furthest points. I’m curious how quickly it drops once it starts and if folks have seen it disconnect all together ?

    iPhone disconnects - never had in this location before!

    After thinking about it, I see NO GOOD reason to have ANY phone radios on, so now I fly in Airplane Mode. In addition, when mine crapped out both times I immediately hit the RTH on the controller and it started coming back. Once I replugged the phone in and the app reconnected I manually...

    iPhone disconnects - never had in this location before!

    I started to have this issue with the stock cable. Since using the USB underneath I’ve had ZERO issues, all latest firmware.

    Anyone use the MavMount for iPad?

    I just received the second gen version of the MavMount. I think it’s perfect. iPad Pro 10.5”. Goggles come Monday but for others trying to look at a phone is almost useless.

    App Disconnects

    4-flights on USB, no issues, convinced that was it.

    Waiting for the next release July 4th!

    I ordered also from B.B. with a Tuesday delivery. DJI still shows shipping and no longer allows a refund so assume they are on the way. Whichever gets here first

    Position Mode ?

    Have you had ANY since switching to the bottom USB?

    Position Mode ?

    Ol, given my disconnects the last 2 days wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything. Using USB instead of side cable worked twice without issue so, hoping

    Position Mode ?

    So I noticed the symbol on the top information row shows ‘Position’ now next to the drone icon. I am trying to find out is this is normal ? I could have sworn it used to say GPS in both areas, what is postition and how did I activate it ?

    App Disconnects

    .... I’ve truly enjoyed flying this much more than I anticipated and the 4k footage I’ve been able to grab plays incredibly on my 75” 4k TV. Can’t wait to get to Hawaii, Key West, Australia with it !!

    App Disconnects

    Definitely part of the plan. The problem is we can’t un-ring a bell, lol. It also is curious to me, that I’m not on home Wifi. While I am well aware a network connection is not required to fly, it is the only other differentiating data point I can think of.

    App Disconnects

    I just realized that after the FIRST occurrence, after switching batteries and restarting everything it automatically reset it’s own IMU.... So you feel these instances were just cause to a failing cable ? ***hoping that is all it was. Don’t want to downgrade firmware if I don’t have to

    App Disconnects

    So, let me start by saying I’m relatively new, got the Mavic day after Memorial Day. I have since flow over 30 times and 6.5 hrs in total. I have been using an iPhone 7 w/iOS 11 Beta, using side cable. Not a single issue except some high wind pop ups a couple of times. On 7/1, I upgraded to...
