    Gimbal calibration fails, is video required?

    So I finally had a significant crash. Flying at night with my led props and crashed into a tree, oops. Replaced the props and all seemed to be good but then noticed I couldn't tilt the gimbal. After doing some checking I suspected the ribbon cable got damaged. Ordered a new one and replaced...

    Mavic Pro Platinum crashed in follow me mode + VIDEO. Need advice on how to repair

    My Mavic was in follow me mode and it started drifting away. Unfortunately, It hit the tree brunches and crashed a few meters away from a steel rail Interesting enough the battery came out mid air so I saw 2 objects falling. Did DJI designed it in such a way, so heavy part (battery) would eject...

    Crashed my Mavic 2 Pro. Need some advice.

    Okay so dumb user error, but I clipped a tree maybe 20 feet high and fell into grass. Message said gimbal overload but once restarted all seemed fine. Then I noticed I bend the front left leg pretty bad. I have DJI care refresh but I dont know if it's worth using for something like this. I can...

    Completely submerged! Drone survived.

    Was messing about with the drone today and as the battery got lower decided to do some low shots of a fountain. Battery was extremely low; I remember seeing just over a minute flight time left but was flying maybe 1.5m high and about 10m away from me so no drama. I dont know what happened...

    Vision system errors and fix

    So I am on my second Mavic Pro now, and have been keeping a good record of flights and distances ect. The first one went down on a cold day with some wind - put it down to adverse conditions. The insurance covered it but rain water had destroyed the craft and we never got to the bottom of the...

    Active Track Crash (Obstacle Avoidance?)

    Hi guys, i started testing the Active Track Mode (Follow car) and unfortunately crashed my Mavic Pro against a tree :/ The crash was probably my fault as i relied too much on the automated flight. I even saw the tree on the screen (i wasn't driving the car myself) but thought the mavic would...

    Noob messing up my first flight in sports mode... (MP)

    With about 3 flying sessions under my belt I was trying out sports mode for the first time. While flying back, the DJI app crashed and with my lack of experience I looked down at my screen rather than watching the aircraft. All while holding the stick fully forward at 100%... Yeah I...
