    Is it possible to connect a Mavic Mini Controller to any Mavic Mini Drone.

    So the worst thing imaginable happened in a restricted airspace in front of Toronto. I was shooting for a boat rental video promo with my Mavic Mini and I was flying alongside the boat when I didn't notice that I had crossed into restricted airspace. But the most confusing thing happened...

    Mavic Air 2 Stick becomes unresponsive when held.

    I just update the DJI Fly app for IOS this morning and went out to fly. I noticed that when I was flying on the way back to my Home Point with full bars that while holding the right stick upwards at the max that the Mavic would stop and I would have to release the stick and push it forward...

About half the time everything connects fine and I get in a couple good flights. The other half the time it says that the controller is not connected at all and...

    Mavic Air can't connect to RC - DJI Assitant 2 can't read out software - How to reset RC and MA?

    Hello Guys, I suddenly can't link my MA to the RC anymore. I tried it with 3 different phones, which were previously all working with the MA and DJIGo4. All ways to connect fail. MA is detected by RC but always runs into time out (60sec). The only way that I can use the MA is via wifi connection...

    Used iPad Mini 4 and some flying issues

    I recently bought a used iPad Mini 4 128gb and been having some issues flying my M2Pro; I’ve been using the iPad USB charging cable to connect to my RC. The first time flying with the iPad I needed to calibrate the compass; ok, not so unusual. Then my sticks needed calibration - hmmm. Once I...

    Mavic 2 Pro losing connection.

    I have a Mavic 2 Pro and for some reason, it keeps showing disconnected even though I’m only a few hundred feet away. I have a Zoom and it does not have the issue when flown in the same location. This has happened to my Pro in two separate locations. Any ideas?

    Mavic 2 Zoom RC not connecting to phone

    Hello, I have been flying for months with no issue, then all of the sudden the DJI Go 4 app would not connect to the drone. Instead of "go fly" it would say "enter device." It seems like the issue is with the RC to phone connection because I can enter the camera view on the app. Mind you, I...

    Almost lost my Mavic while ocean fishing

    Can some one help me "guess" what could've caused this near-miss incident (see attached KLM file). In a nutshell, I launched my Mavic Pro from the hand while ocean fishing on a boat. It flew great for about ~5 minutes...then it freaked out saying it lost connection and began to returned home...

    Is it better to connect through WIFI-password instead QR-code?

    TL;DR; Is it best practice to always make sure to connect to the drone via WIFI-password instead of QR-code to prevent or minimize the risk of being unable to reconnect, if you lose your connection.. in the case locking the iPhone screen for example? Longer version: I just bought a MA and have...

    iPhone app connection

    Hi I’m having connection issues. My remote controller is connected to my Mavic Pro but my iPhone 7, while physically plugged into the remote controller, is saying it’s disconnected from the aircraft. I’ve tried powering everything off and starting up again - no difference. I suppose it could...

    The remote control can't connect to the drone

    Hi A couple of weeks ago I bought a Mavic Pro. Most of the time the controller can't connect to the drone/gimbal. I use an Iphone 7 plus. With good space on it. I have tried three different cables between the phone and the controller. And both of the cable connections on the controller. The dji...

    Loss connection then plummeted into river

    So I was flying my mavic on a pretty routine flight. Just getting a sunset shot over the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers when about 6 minutes into the flight I got a connection error. I tried to reconnect and the Android app crashed, then I restarted the app and it could only...

    TIA, connection problem with GS Pro, as in, it won't

    I'm sure this has been asked before. I did search, but couldn't find a thread here. I can fly with my phone, and a buddy flew with his Ipad, but I can connect my Ipad (( 3rd gen, 32gb) at all. I've loaded it several times. The home button seems dead on the GS Pro screen.

    When opening the DJI Go APP, it forced me to upgrade the APP while trying to connect with my device, so I did; and I was not able to connect after that. I just received my DJI Refresh Mavic after a crash. Nothing will connect now. I think it had something to do with the APP..however when I...
