    Because it seems 99% of crashes are pilot error, I sure would like to find out what I did wrong. i've only been flying for a few months and try to be careful. Questions: a. Is this enough data to determine what I did wrong (or if the AC went nuts) to make it crash? b. Is there more data I...

    Crashed Air & gimbal motor overload error and incline gimbal with yaw problem

    Hi What would you recommend to do with Air that has been crashed and has gimbal motor overload error and visibly incline gimbal (horizontal)? Also gimbal auto calibration won't (naturally) finish. Could it be fixed possibly with (new) ribbon cable and perhaps by fixing this possible issue ? Or...

    DJI Go 4 App Crashing on SC: SOLVED

    In the event anyone has a similar issue, I am posting the symptoms and resolution to a nagging problem I've had with the SC for months. The problem I had was a combination of Go 4 app crashes and excessive app freezes during flights, the latter being much more prominent and really annoying...

    It "finally" happened. I managed to crash my drone into the only tree the desert had to offer, sideways, full speed. All props went flying in different directions. The heavy Hasselblad camera bent the frame that it holds on impact (wth?). Back at home I managed to repair the damaged frame...

    I crashed my mavic 2 pro... camera faces down.

    Everything else on the mavic works fine. The camera stays facing down when off though. I can move it in any direction manually but will center itself facing down. When I turn it on it positions itself normally and works normal. Only when I fly and move it around the camera drifts and faces down...

Happily my son saw...

    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...

    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...
