    Short flight in mountains drone drops, wondering why?

    Just to let everyone know as a followup . . . I had a DJI refresh plus covering the drone. I sent it back to DJI for assessment/analysis, asking them to honor the warranty if there was no way that the logs proved it wasn't hardware failure. They did honor the warranty in this case so I still...

    Backpack Suggestions - Goggle & Mavic

    I wanted to figure out how to pack the goggles and mavic pro together in a backpack without breaking down the goggles. Everything needed to be quick to get to. I needed to be able to bring 4 batteries. If necessary, charger and extra gear . . . I found a small case that packs the drone and...

    Short flight in mountains drone drops, wondering why?

    The battery appears good, no swelling, etc. I kept it separate from the other batteries for several days . . . it seemed ok, so I eventually stuck it back in with my gear. That accident was 1/2 a month ago. Haven't used it but for downloading dat files. It was just about new . . .

    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AkvPy71hWDNIjXN5IOka8jaHKuAF?e=LtgYaH This is a 1 Gb file with 5 flights and the Dat for the actual download *183.DAT. I do not understand why CSVviewer's Geoplayer doesn't seem to show the full flight path for for some of the previous flights, or why some of the motors seem...

    Short flight in mountains drone drops, wondering why?

    I THINK the battery was found a couple of yards down the hill from the drone (further away from me than the drone). I did not see the actual locations of drone and batt, just from a distance saw the people that went to pick up the items - those young ones were fast!

    Short flight in mountains drone drops, wondering why?

    I have no recollection of suddenly stopping the AC. Certainly there were no obstacles in the area, nothing of interest I was trying to film right there, etc. I was on a mission to go up a mountain and film some family/friends that were hiking up there, and was trying to get there as fast as...

    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AkvPy71hWDNIjXK7VfdkEvNCpJCv?e=FFhBct this is the next DAT file. According to dates/times visible during export it was created while AC was on as I was downloading the DAT files (the first time I downloaded). I noticed during the export that there were two logs (one of...

    Short flight in mountains drone drops, wondering why?

    The battery had separated from the mavic at some point. I assumed it was knocked off after impact or when falling, but that could be wrong. Is there a way to eliminate all other causes?

    Short flight in mountains drone drops, wondering why?

    I was flying my Mavic Pro in the mountains. Had done many flights from this area. Drone flew a short distance with a new battery. It apparently stopped and fell from the sky. I don't know how to read logs, can someone help? I would like to learn if this was a machine failure or if I did...
