    Mavic Air Crash - Can I still fly it?

    Hi, I borrowed my drone to a good friend for his honeymoon in South America. When he came back, he told me that on his first day he crashed the DJI (apparently his phone stoped working while he was in an automatic fly mode). Furthermore he told me, that he continued flying without any issues...

    Hey guys, I'm new to drones and new to this forum. Today I had a bad day due to making a bad decision. With only 1 hour and 30 minutes flight time with my brand new Mavic Air, I tried to get an under a bridge shot. Plenty of clearance and water was flowing slowly, no risk of splashing...

    Why did my Mavic Air decide to land on water?

    Problem? I cannot understand what went wrong. Pilot error, rookie mistake, interference ? Was unit in a crash? Yes, I think this qualifies as a "soft" crash since it landed on water and sank. After 10 hours, a diver was able to recover the unit but I don't think I will try to make it fly...

    Mavic Air Down! - lost in the Cederberg Mountains, Western Cape, South Africa

    I have only had my Mavic Air a few weeks, and still have a lot to learn from the wealth of tutorials on YouTube and this forum. Sometimes the best lesson is learnt from our mistakes, but with drones, that could potentially be a disaster and an expensive exercise. A recent trip in the...

    DJI Mavic Pro No GPS

    Hey everybody I've been having an issue of no GPS on my Mavic Pro after a crash that I had. I looked for a flight log, but I think it was overwritten since I have been turning the AC on to calibrate and test after repairs. I didn't realize it would overwrite since I haven't actually flown the...

    Gimbal calibration fails, is video required?

    So I finally had a significant crash. Flying at night with my led props and crashed into a tree, oops. Replaced the props and all seemed to be good but then noticed I couldn't tilt the gimbal. After doing some checking I suspected the ribbon cable got damaged. Ordered a new one and replaced...

    Okay so dumb user error, but I clipped a tree maybe 20 feet high and fell into grass. Message said gimbal overload but once restarted all seemed fine. Then I noticed I bend the front left leg pretty bad. I have DJI care refresh but I dont know if it's worth using for something like this. I can...

    Being an anonymous lurker for some time, I was hoping to get some help from the community. I experienced a mysterious and serious crash while flying today. The MP was only 350ft away, 150ft up but obscured by a tree when it crashed. Furthermore the video feed cut out (whole screen turned...
