    Join us for a little flying at -40F

    This is more about humorous flying temps than anything so I put it here instead of Photos and Video but mods can move it if they wish. This is just a little excerpt from a flight a year or two ago.

    -27F Battery test

    We finally got a bit of a chill and it's -27F today so I thought I'd do a quick test. My Avata was the only drone with full batteries but you can generalize this a bit. I'll do a few more battery tests with the Mav 3 and Mini3 Pro at some point too. In any case.... I started out with 95% battery...

    3 Mavic 3 Cold Weather Test

    The DJI Mavic 3 is not only great in terms of image quality, it also performs really well in the freezing cold! I also created a longer snowshoeing adventure video on the same trip:

    Air 2 Indian Lake Ohio Sled Heads Poker Run Footage + FPV

    Had a good time this weekend with some drone buddies filming the 2021 Indian Lake Sled Head Poker Run. Over 175 snowmobiles fly across the frozen lake to different stops. It was a good time, cold but fun! Most of the footage was filmed on the Mavic Air 2 with some FPV clips thrown in toward the...

    This little drone is a beast! Handles the frigid temps like a champ!

    This is the coldest temps I have ever flown a drone. The Mini 2 continues to impress me!

    Got the dreaded jello effect in cold weather. Hit some branches and then it was stable again.

    So I've been reading the forums and I know a lot of people get this jello effect when flying in sub-zero cold weather. Some say the drone needs to acclimatize before flying it. I didn't do that, I just took it out of my warm car and flew it straight away while sitting in the car. So it was out...

    Keeping Batteries Warm for a Few Days

    Hello, I'm going on a road trip and would like to take the Mavic. I plan on sleeping in my car and am expecting temperatures to be anywhere from 20F to 50F. I suppose I could put them in my pocket while I sleep, however, that doesn't sound all that comfortable. How would I keep the batteries...

    -18°C/-4°F Winter footage, first time flight/edit/color. Feedback would be awesome!

    Hey all, it's my first time flying my drone and first try at editing with Premiere Pro (trial version). I shot in D-Log and colored for the very first time. I tinted the video a bit red for some warmth and added some blue to the sky as the original footage had white light, white snow and a lot...

    Hi all! Just got my Mavic in Finland last week. The weather has been in the -5C...+4C region. This morning i went to a beach to shoot the sunrise and icy landscapes: There was something weird going on with the gimbal, some shots are tilted to the left. I calibrated the gimbal on an uneven...

    iPhone battery cold weather tips

    Hey there, everyone. I'm new to this forum and a new Mavic Pro owner, as well! I have a question that I'm hoping you can help with. Yesterday, I took my Mavic Pro on a snowshoeing hike near Mt. Saint Helens and flew it for about 45 min. It flew beautifully although I did get a cold temperature...

    Cold, Autofocus, and the Bubble

    After quite a bit of experimentation, I've figured out some stuff with my Mavic, I thought I'd share. First, flying in cold (20F) weather, my battery was fine, but the camera seemed not to have a flat focal plane. Edges was blurry. Figured out, that this was just an artifact of the cold (go...

    Mavic high altitude and low temp test

    I have been flying the heck out of my new Mavic since I received it less than a week ago. It has been flawless and performs amazingly. It's a total game-changer for me since filming in remote mountain locations is my thing. This was my high altitude and cold temperature test of the Mavic. This...
