    The FAA has issued an official warning. According to the FAA, any civilian operating a drone commerce with “guns, bombs, fireworks, flamethrowers, and other dangerous items” is subject to a fine of up to $25,000. So posting it in a public forum (no matter how COOL it is), is just PLAIN STUPID...

    I agree with you, sometimes. I repair Mavic Pro's, so I'm always testing the drone's features and this is one that tends to baffle me. Most of my drones will execute this feature exceptionally well (within inches of the EXACT take-off point) IF they have had IMU & compass calibrations. But some...

    Mavic Air Gimble Failure

    I actually have a MA in my shop that replicates that behavior.. Put on the Clamp and start the drone, Gimbal & camera work as designed. Start the drone without the clamp, gimbal get's the DT's and shakes side to side. Replace the clamp, start the drone & the gimbal works perfectly! I'm replacing...

    Mavic Air for parts

    Ok, just to be thorough, did you move the switch by the SD-Card back to RC? I've had this issue many time and it was because that little switch was still in WiFi. ;)

    Mavic Pro - Gimbal motor overload even after changing ribbon and gimbal arm

    It seems there is a software glitch in the newest firmware that sees an error when there is none. Turn on the drone BEFORE you turn on the RC and then see if your gimbal works/responds to the controller.

    Mavic Pro - Gimbal motor overload even after changing ribbon and gimbal arm

    I have a similar problem. I replaced the whole Gimbal (only reused the camera) but on start up I get the overload error message. After startup the gimbal works as designed, even calibrates! Any suggestions?

    My Mavic Air Compass Error fix

    It Fails, but the Sensor Reading is in the green in the app, but still requires calibration & won't allow the AC to take off. UPDATE: I replaced the compass module & the IMU, problem solved.

    My Mavic Air Compass Error fix

    Yes, several with no luck. Then a couple hours later I tried again, from the exact same location and didn't get the calibration error. So, now I don't know what the deal is. I'm considering replacing the compass module. But I also think it could be the app, who knows!? I do have a M1P that will...
