    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...

    Mavic 3 Front Right arm replacement

    Hey guys, I want to make it quick so: I crashed my brand new Mavic 3. It’s safe to say that the Mavic 3 in sport mode does not do well with trees and now the stand of the right front arm broke off. The led is still working and other than that nothing seems to be faulty. Motors are spinning...

    New DJI Air 2S 1-meter hover crashed to ground

    Hello, I've already noticed some tumble/jerk during my 2nd flight with some spontaneous gimbal/cam tilting down issues, it was absolutely scary. So I decided to do some 1-meter hover to see whether the tumble/jerk continues to happen. And yep, it started to shake in the air like hell, and then...

    M3 drops from sky

    So it happened, haven't had a drone go down in over 5 years and 2500 hours of flying. Was crawling along at 11mph at 220 feet and 60% battery getting some cinematic beachy sunset shots, its 7th flight and it just dropped like a brick, lost all power from what I could tell, last recorded flight...

    Mavic mini crashed in water

    I crashed a mavic mini in a creek over a year ago. Found it three days later still in water. Pulled it all apart to remove all the mud and cleaned it. Have not done anything else with it since. The SD card had the footage from the day and there is a file from the last video I was recording when...

    Drone crash - survived

    When I was waiting for my drone a few years back, I read and appreciated many of the posts here. Now that I have my own (happy so far) crash story, I figured I would share. WARNING: This is not overly dramatic or exciting. The drone was found immediately. I'm posting an airdata link for anyone...

    Mavic Mini Crashed into the water (video and flight log included)

    Hello, I bought a Mavic Mini one year ago, and until now I had no issues and was so happy with its performance, but the other day I just lost control of it while flying and it crashed into the water. I don't know what happened, it was flying like always and then suddenly it started losing...

    Lost my Mini in the woods - could someone look at the log?

    So, after a year I have now lost my drone to the forest... I've pretty much come to the conclusion that I was too low for the terrain I was in (forest full of tall trees). Nevertheless, could someone (possibly) give me some more info on what went wrong? What confuses me is that I was never able...

    Mini 2 sunk in swimming pool, still alive and flying but disconnecting, what now?

    Hello there, so here's the thing: after 3+ years of perfect flights with DJI Spark in every possible risky conditions, my new Mini 2 decided to crash on a wire above a swimming pool and take a deep dive on its third flight! Do you think we could call this "excess of self-confidence"...

    [SOLVED] Small silver plate came out after a crash

    Hello, I was flying my mini2 indoor and let it hover to take video and little did I know it was moving by itself and hit the wall. I picked it up and it still works but a small silver/aluminum/stainless steel came out. I wonder if I should worry? and how difficult would that be to put it back on?

    Replace all props?

    At the weekend, my M2P backed into a tree whilst tracking, which in itself was inexplicable. I see that one of the blades is cracked. Is it wise to replace all at once, or just the damaged one? Thanks folks! PS any recommendations for other than standard props as replacements?

    Mavic 2 Pro flew upward sensors did not stop and hit branches

    Hi My M2P crashed when I was doing active track. The battery was low and it attempted to fly up to go to its go home height. But over hanging tree branches were in the way above it. The drone still tried to go up. Hit a branch, then flew down then kept trying again to go up. Hitting branches...

    Question about buying a Mavic 2 blank for diy drone repair

    Hey all, was hoping to get some insight... I recently catastrophically crashed a Mavic 2 Pro that I bought Second-hand. This was not covered by DJI care refresh, so obviously all repairs will be out of pocket. As I understand, if I were to just send my aircraft in to be repaired, if it has had...

    My DJI Mini 2 has survived a treewater ****

    Hi! I’d like to share a story because it’s incredible. I have crashed my DJI Mini 2 into a tree at an altitude of about 50m. After dropping all the way down, it hit the ground so hard that it bounced to a rocky slope, fell into a mountain river, drifted 5 meters and sunk. I’ve made a...

    DJI mini 2 Propeller screw stuck

    Last night I was flying my new DJI mini 2. Soon before I planned to land, my app crashed as it started automatically updating to the new update (for the air 2S). I immediately landed it but one propeller slightly caught a rock on the way down. There was only slight damage but ofcourse decided...
