    Another crash thread...

    Not too long ago, I crashed my mavic pro. It was about 14 feet up when it got hit by a football and fell to the ground. The battery came out and the propellers were cracked. I thought that was the end of the issues though. Turns out i broke the ribbon cable for the gimbal. I replaced it and the...

    Drone crashed - video and log

    So, I go to do a test. I wanted to see about how fast I could rise vertically and move horizontally with different sets of props. I was only into the initial test two minutes with the regular 2 blade props when the drone starts going crazy. I was not far from home and I was able to turn around...

    You won't believe this! My Mavic 2 Zoom hits wire and keeps flying!

    I'm on the island of Molokai, Hawaii filming a horse galloping - prior to starting I did see the wires (no power to them) in the distance and set the drone to fly above the wires. I am following the horse and I don't see any wires on the smart controller screen and then suddenly wham - my...

    4 day old M2P ran over by car, incredible repair bill $$$ :(

    So I was out flying around with my 4 day old Mavic 2 Pro and I landed in the parking lot of my work, exactly 25 seconds later as I was reviewing the flight video on my phone a Lexus pulls in and runs over my M2P. Seemingly on purpose by the video... I don't think it was on purpose though, anyhow...

    Gimbal and camera not working after crash

    Hey there. So in December while filming in a city between buildings my Mavic Pro disconnected from the controller and hit a lamp post. Today I finally got around to try flying it.

    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...

    I crashed my Mavic Air after 1 hour

    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...
