    What is Coptersafe?

    So what FAA "rules" are broken by Coptersafe? I am not familiar with this modification. DJI breaks FAA rules be taking control away from the aircraft pilot at their discretion. I read the comments in the locked thread. DJI cannot stop you, the owner, from modifying a product you purchased...

    Mavic Pro 2 - 905 grams???

    So by your non-conspiratorial standard, DJI also knew they were selling countless thousands of Phantoms that would effectively be banned in the near future or very difficult to find places to fly. In other words, consumers are getting ripped off. Are you being paid by DJI to post such nonsense?

    Ordered Mavic Pro

    It was the oem card that got jammed while removing it. At least BB didn't fight me over the refund especially after the defect was obvious. They didn't have any in stock for an exchange. Apparently this has been a problem for others Anybody has had problems removing the micro SD memory card?

    Lots of Mavic's being sold

    I know what you're saying. DJI is strangely silent over at RCG over all this stuff. Since the U.S. Army (likely the entire military) banned anything DJI, maybe those text files have something to do with it. Where are they stored at? I had to return the MP anyway due to the sd card getting...

    Ordered Mavic Pro

    Well I'm really bumming. After flying, getting used to the controls and beginning to bond with the Mavic, I decided to unpack everything, charge up the extra batteries, peel the plastic off everything and get ready to bring it North tomorrow for some filming at the beach. I have other options...

    Lots of Mavic's being sold

    I agree with much of what you wrote, but what pushed you over the edge with DJI restrictions? GEO I presume? Come to think of it, I'm going to fly at a spot on Lake Huron, Michigan tomorrow. There is a possibility the Mavic won't be allowed to fly there; will likely have to use the H and Solo...

    Does your Android tablet work?

    Ha! I saw that my phone said it was recharging. I thought, what the? The MP was purpose bought to fit in the small bag. I saw it for the first time at a mud jam and said I gotta get one, but no addons to lug around. It all must fit in the bag or pocket. So, I'm stuck with getting a small...

    Ordered Mavic Pro

    Ok, I updated, calibrated and studied the flight modes etc. Today I took it up. So far: Likes: 1) compact size 2) stability for such a small size 3) flight time 4) camera 5) everything I need to fly fits in the man purse. Sure beats lugging around a huge backpack when it isn't needed...

    Does your Android tablet work?

    https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=tablet&cat_id=0 Which in this list from Walmart will work? Among those that "work", which has the brightest screen? Sorry for so many questions, but I figured there should be plenty of Mavic pilots out there now that know the answers.

    Does your Android tablet work?

    Wow. This is what worries me about buying DJI. Last year I had a P4, but none of my Androids would work properly. Two had purple lines on the screen, the other the Go app would crash or lock. I'm certainly not going to spend $$$ more for an IPad (or Android for that matter) just to be able to...

    Ordered Mavic Pro

    Experienced pilot with mostly larger craft, would like to know if there bugs to watch for during setup and thereafter of the Mavic. Are there major issues some/most experience? Frustrations in the sw/fw by DJI? I had a P4 but sold it last year; am an Arducopter guy, but cannot build a copter...
