    Mavic 2 pro crashed and won't turn on

    I accidentally flew my Mavic 2 pro into a power line at 50 ft and it crashed on the ground. The only visible damage is the front right landing leg. When I try to turn on the drone the fan starts and the back right motor starts to turn but immediately makes a loud click like it is obstructed and...

    Mavic Pro platinum powered down midflight.

    Was flying my drone last night and it powered down midflight. Anyone live in the Houston Kingwood area want to help me find it? I figure it would be found a lot faster if we had multiple drones scanning for it... or specialty drones with special cameras on them. I figure it’s lost for good...

    Mavic starts, goes higher and higher --> crash

    Problem? Mavic starts, goes up and up.... after around 10-20 meters altitude the pilot pressed throttle down. The mavic turned off.... Was unit in a crash? What have you tried so far? The Pilot had this before, then the pilot had to change a arm, and it was enough for one flight. When the...

    Moving up in Drone Pilotry, I now have a crash in my logbook!

    So it is a matter of when not if, especially as I get more confident. But “whoa Nelly” this one was stupid. Take off, roll to the left without looking what’s there and a sign on post decides to get in the way of my props. Down she goes onto her back having a ongoing fit. I quickly reached into...

    Crashed my Mavic Mini, is it still safe to fly?

    Hello Mavic People, I just crashed my magic while I was doing an indoor shoot, and I think there was interference with the drone while I was flying as it wasn't reacting properly (it was increasing altitude, not staying still etc...). Anyways, I tried to do a sideways shot but the drone...

    Mavic 2 Pro Plummeted into the Ocean

    Hey Mavic Pilots, I was flying at St. Simon's Pier in Brunswick, GA when I witnessed my drone commit suicide right in front of me (and about 200 other people). Was pretty embarrassing. I am unable to even attempt to get it back because I don't know any divers there or have any diving gear...

    Mavic 2 crash using intelligent flight modes

    I write this post to share my experiences in two flights using the Mavic 2 resulting in a crash. I bought the drone in March 2020 and have clocked 8 hrs of flight since then. I love the sensors on the drone that make it stop once to close to objects. But I have two crashes that could easily been...

    Mavic Air flew off, accelerated and smashed in to a wall at nearly 40mph!

    I have had my Mavic Air since it first came out and have used it many times with very few issues until yesterday. I have not used it for 3 months and charged the battery up fully. Went to my local beach to fly it where there is a lot of wide open space. I placed it down on a big flat concrete...
