    Taking a vacation here shortly, I have four batteries for my Mavic. As of right now they are secured individually in foam cutouts in my pelican case that houses all my accessories.

    Focus Functionality Question

    Have read a number of discussions on the Mavic Pro series REQUIRING you to tap the screen to focus the camera. Is this truly the case. AND now with the MP2Zoom, is this also the case or does the new feature of autofocus eliminate the need to take that additional step of touching the screen to...

    New battery shows 4 charge cycles?

    Just purchased a "new" battery from eBay, just because I checked charge cycles before doing anything. It shows 4 charge cycles. Should a new battery show previous charge cycles? Thanks

    What do you guys do to keep your batteries in good shape

    Hello, I have seen a lot of clips on youtube about how important it is to keep your batteries healthy, but what tips do you guys have. Do you drive your drone down to 15-25% battery then come home and charge it back up right away to around 40% in order to store it better? I always used to...

    Should I dispose of battery with hairline cracks?

    One of my Mavic batteries, now over a year old, has developed some cracks. I have read that this is caused by over heating of the lithium battery in storage/discharge. Would be good to hear if this is a common problem and what others have done. Cheers

    DJI Mavic Air: How to Check how many times a battery is charged?

    Once I bought my Mavic Air Fly More combo, I though It was enough having three batteries to do a decent job flying and taking some interesting footage. First thing was, according to the specs, 21 minutes of flight time times 3 batteries would be over one total hour… WRONG. Having a safe flight...

    Just getting ready for my vacation to Florida and per Allegiant Airlines customer service (after being on hold 32 minutes) no drones permitted.
