    Poll-What kind of range are you REALLY getting with your Air?

    I was out at a small beach, flying over water and hit 6300 feet. I did lose sight of it at about 2300 feet. After turning around I flew for quite sometime and managed just under 24000 feet total. That’s enough for me.

    Newer pilot Jacksonville Florida

    Greetings from Middleburg :) Two of my favorite places to fly are Green Cove springs and Keystone Heights. This place has a wealth of information.

    New Pilot from Manila Philippines

    Welcome to the group. I was lucky to spend a summer in your city many years ago; had an apartment at the Olympia.

    New battery questons

    OK, I ordered a new battery for my MA (I wanted a 4th one) and it should be here tomorrow. Other than charging it, anything else do I need to be concerned with? I thought I saw something about firmware updates with a new battery, but I could be wrong. TIA

    Sport Mode is Sick!

    Well, I'm not up to any really brave stuff yet, but I did decide to try sport mode today. Holy crap on a cracker....got it up to 43 MPH but the wind was behind me so it was moving :) The one thing I noticed was that once I switched over to sport mode, the video stopped recording and I never...

    Icon question

    Finally got a chance to go back up today; Dorian caused too much wind :) Anyway, when I checked that ICON again it starts off with VPS and does register a number, then switches over to that little guy and the arrow. It seems like it registers distance for a short time but once you get a little...

    Thanks. I’ll watch it again today but I think it always shows N/A

    Icon question

    First, I use an IPad 128g for a display. On the bottom of the screen there is an icon that looks like a person next to an arrow. It is just to the right of the vertical speed. It shows N/A. All other indicators (gps, obstacle avoidance, etc.) seem normal. What is this for and should it...

    Master Airscrew Stealth Propellers - 2nd GEN V2

    OK, so I took my little toy out to a park today and made a few flights to try out the new props. First, I can definitely tell the difference with sound level; these are noticeably quieter. Don't get me wrong, you can still hear them. As for battery life, I also see an improvement. My second...

    Landing

    I admit I've always used RTH, but mainly because I'm amazed on how it lands almost perfectly where it took off from :) Sometimes I just like to watch it flying on it's own without my input. I'll be practicing manual landings for sure though.

    Master Airscrew Stealth Propellers - 2nd GEN V2

    Got my set yesterday. Only had one flight (it started to rain) so I could not really tell any noticeable difference in battery life. It did sound 'less annoying" than the stock props, but then again, I never really had a problem anyway. They are much thinner, so yes, be careful when putting...

    Mavic Air color: Artic White or Onyx Black (there is 10% price difference at BestBuy canada)

    I just checked again, the black is still $898, white and red are $999. Not sure why.

    Mavic Air color: Artic White or Onyx Black (there is 10% price difference at BestBuy canada)

    Funny, it was just the opposite here in North Florida. When I bought my MA from the Best Buy in Jacksonville, the white was $100 more. I had thought about red, but the black combo kit was on sale for $898.

    Master Airscrew "Stealth" props V1 and V2 - did you buy them without knowing of the motor current errors?

    I'll be sure and post what I see when mine arrive tomorrow. Of course it will depend on the weather and our new friend Dorian :)
