    1 Month old mini 3 pro RTH landed itself on ankle deep sea water. Help needed!

    On Sunday Morning, I brought my 1 month old Mini 3 Pro to nearby beach to take video of a resort there. Then nightmare happened when after i decided to update my home point to RC, it somehow updated the home point on the sea. Not realizing that, when the battery is low, I tried to control it...

    DJI Mini 2 Crash and gimbal now shakes

    So the inevitable happened to me last week and I crashed my drone breaking my dji mini 2 arm and my gimbal has started shaking up and down which is the more pressing issue for me. DJI fly will not let it recalibrate and I cannot rotate up or down. I contacted DJI support, but they were very...

    Mini 3 Atti mode crash - is this clearly user error or potentially a malfunction?

    Hey everyone, My drone took off from an almost identical flight 20 off minutes earlier and wouldn't increase altitude or stop drifting forward due to GPS issues. This resulted in a crash. The response from DJI was as follows: 1. The aircraft worked under ATTI mode after it took off. 2...

    Broken Mini 2 after crashing in to tree....and then down! Repairable?

    Hi all. I did a Dronie and miscalculated where it was headed and crashed in to a 40ft high tree. Thanks to the Find My Drone, I found it, could hear the beeps but couldn't see it. Minutes later, torrential rain and thunderstorm. I went back 24 hours later to see that it has blown to the floor...

    DJI software bug surrounding authorised boundaries caused me to lose my drone to the sea

    I'm going to save myself time and link to the reddit thread. I'm hoping some of you can help me out by reading the log and telling me if I have an argument here for a replacement. For ease, the log can be found here: https://www.phantomhelp.com/logviewer/27TN7YSF5GEJ6ND6RD1X I also...

    Minor crash - change propellers or not?

    Today I took off partially under a tree and then flew right into the tree, the drone got stuck, I retrieved it back and flew it one time, it flew okay after that. However, after checking the propellers, they are fine except that the paint is missing in some parts of the propeller. Should I...

    Hi all I have included the flight log for the info but last night I set up to fly my drone in Newcastle. I had 11 - 12 locked gps' and the home point was recorded. I did a compass calibration right before it too. I took off, and flew forwards towards the river then as I let go of the sticks...

    Lost my Air to the river...couple of questions

    Had my Mavic Air for a few years, use it a lot, its been good. I foolishly was in sport mode getting low to the water for a nice shot along the river while on the edge of the river in my boat, I then had a brain fart. The angle of attack changes massively when in full speed using sport mode, and...

    Mini 2 crashes into the Singapore river during night flight. Crash analysis request from amateur.

    1 week new mini 2 drone pilot, and absolutely loving the experience. Flying daily over land had been comfortable thus far. Overexcitedly flew the mini 2 over a large body of water Marina bay during evening time- with no issues. Tried once more at night time resulting in a crash. Wind: low...

    Oops after overlooking a Litchi mission planning detail

    I'd planned a 6-minute circuit to get video of a friend's cottage nestled in trees near a frozen lake. All looked well, with the elevation of the waypoints over the forested area set to 45m (~150ft), so well above even the tallest pine trees. Just to be sure though, before starting the mission...

    Video of my Mavic Air 2 Crash - lesson learned

    Yes, it happened. I crashed my Mavic Air 2 after having it for 7 months. Unexpected crash, totally pilot error. My drone will be replaced by DJI, as I have Care Refresh, so that's good news. I learned from this that you need to look carefully both sides before orbiting an object, or flying...

    Crashed my DJI FPV into the snow just to try something

    Hello everybody. Just to share my experience with the snow here. I was flying in N mode. I did not like the M mode. Still not flying with that or rarely let's say. During the snow time we had good recordings/shooting. Here's how I crashed it into the snow : The drone stopped itself...

    Crashed my Mavic Air 2, hardware failure?

    Hello, yesterday I crashed my Mavic Air 2 into a light pole, and at first glance, it seems like it was 100% user error, but not quite so after I watched the video and the logs. The drone fell to the ground from 1 meter height (crashed into the light pole sideways, when orbiting) and I was sure...

    MA2 survived 3 months in the woods

    This is a "crash story" with a happy ending. It attests both to the durability of DJI drones and to the high level of DJI customer service... In September, due to pilot error, I crashed my Mavic Air 2 into 50-ft-tall trees (height confirmed with the Flight Record). I could hear its Find My...

    Mavic Air Crash??? (Uncommanded Descent into water and then 2 flyaways)

    Hi, So I went flying at the beach and from the start the Mavic Air was behaving weird. When I powered it up the controller was beeping but there were no error messages on my screen so I just restarted everything and the error was still there with no indication of what it was beeping for. I...

    Rebuilding my crashed Mini 2

    Well...it happen again, but this time is broke its front/left leg, body shell (top, middle and battery door) Apparently the cause of the crash was a loose screw and one of the propellers came off. (Lesson learned, always do a checklist before you fly..) The drone was approx 200 feet in the air...
