    Mavic Pilots in the Netherlands

    Hey Rudy, welcome to the forum. I am not from your beautiful country, but lived there for about 6 years (1994-2001), in a great little suburb of Den Haag called Leidschendam. We really enjoyed our time there and spent many a weekend exploring the countryside on bike. Being from a country with...

    transmissivity degradation mainboard fatigue

    I have to agree @Shuggins, each new post is like a box of chocolate - you never know what you're going to get....

    transmissivity degradation mainboard fatigue

    Short, laser focused, concise, & directly to the point. I think @Shuggins' post summarizes the topic well (apart from my earlier response of 42 of course...)....

    OH. MY. WORD. I think that's quite enough Internet for me today...

    Can I fly with my US registered drone in Canada?

    If you register it in Canada, then yes. But I believe you have to be a Canadian citizen or legal landed immigrant to Canada to register. I do not believe they allow registration for tourists. Sorry about that... Relevant material here...

    Is it ok to cancel drone initiated low battery RTH

    Hmmm. At the risk of wandering down this rabbit hole a bit more (mods, we are getting off topic, please let us know if we need a new, separate thread). Thanks for the reply. Can you help me understand the flaw in my thinking about the case where head or tail wind is parallel to RTH heading...

    Is it ok to cancel drone initiated low battery RTH

    Thanks @Kilrah, I will do some looking for that. If you have anything to help narrow down the search (timeframe, which forum, etc.) that would be appreciated.... BELAY THAT REQUEST @Kilrah ... I think I found it: https://mavicpilots.com/threads/mavic-battery-and-speed-efficiency-chart.16568/...

    Is it ok to cancel drone initiated low battery RTH

    Thanks very much for that link ... I am going to have to sit down and digest that one, but looks like a really good analysis. I have a few questions, but need to think a bit first to avoid making a fool of myself with dumb questions.... One of the things I have rattling around in my head is...

    Mavic 2 distance flight

    Good point @Rattydude77 - I had not considered that the weight would be up because of the double battery setup. Makes it even that much more interesting....

    Is it ok to cancel drone initiated low battery RTH

    I was wondering about that @sar104. I was trying to think how one could generate the data to drone efficiency vs speed, and use that to look for a maximum point like you reference. Should be able to do that, but would want to generate the data on a dead calm day or the results end up...

    Is it ok to cancel drone initiated low battery RTH

    I think this is an excellent example of cancelling a low battery RTH, resulting in the bird getting safely home with more battery reserve than just leaving the RTH active.

    Mavic 2 distance flight

    you still have the flight log by any chance??

    Mavic 2 distance flight

    So you were max 7.6 miles away from point of origin, and still had up and downlink signals?? That is beyond remarkable. I would love to see the flight log from that flight if you'd care to upload it... What about the max speed - can you tell us more about that flight??

    Mavic 2 distance flight

    Darryl, I'm a bit confused by your second post with "wow". Are the screen shots from your flights, or something you found elsewhere are and asking if this is normal speed & distance for a Mavic 2? Thanks for clarification. If I am not mistaken, the distance number is the total distance...
