    From P3 standard to Mavic Pro, Take it easy or balls out?

    Hello Nerds, I finally broke down and bought a Mav.... After my first flight, my impression was that the Mavic was NOT worth buying and not much different than my P3 standard. Which really isn't a standard after putting 3 amps and upgrading both the transmitting antennas and receiving...

    Need More Performance Data for MA

    No doubt you have to factor headwind/tailwind into your planning for a flight, and plan to land with a reserve. However, there’s another thing to consider: should you fly in Normal or Sport Mode? If you have a headwind that is half of your max speed in Normal Mode, wouldn’t you be better off...

    Flight Range in Long Island?

    Hello, I'm from Long Island but moved out to Southwest where I've purchased and have flown my Mavic Pro - with pretty good range. I've flown here in areas with and without residential and commercial interference. I have seen in dense areas typically I'm averaging 1-1.5 miles and in sparse...

    Frustratingly low distance obtainable with Mavic Air

    Does anyone else experience their Mavic Air having a seemingly low distance? I am traveling around the World for 4 months and going to places like Iceland etc when drone flying is quite safe, but since flying in areas like Greece and other places I have noticed that I can’t really get much...

    Help! My last try at this...

    Guys I’m in need of help this is probably my last crack at this mavic, since day one it’s been giving me a headache. The problem out the box has been with distance. I’ve read so much on issues with distance, I’ve tried troubleshooting the issue myself and to no avail. So about 4 months ago I buy...

    Mavic can't fly further than 30 m ?

    Hi all, today when I wanted to take some shots I wasn't able to fly further than about 30 m. The drone stops and the remote tells me max flight distance reached. So I landed and restarted it, checked to see if beginner and distance limit was disabled, it was, and tried again. It still did the...

    Initialization DISTANCE

    I've been experimenting with how to conduct BVLOS ops ( Beyond Visual Line Of Sight) legally and became curious about how far away you could start a Mavic so I tried and experiment. My observer friend Ian took my Mavic and Phantom 4Pro+ a little over a kilometer away ( across open water for best...

    How much do you push your Mavic?

    In a residential area, I lose a few bars of signal strength around 1,000 feet (around 300 AGL). I maintain VLOS, so I'm sure it's due to WiFi interference. My questions is: How much do you trust the Mavic to alert you of a weak signal, or return to home in the event of signal loss. I...

    Is B4UFly wrong?

    I have used Hover and B4UFly for pre-flight checks. I have used 2 different computer mapping applications to check the fly zone radius from a local Class C airport which I live by. The 2 computer apps both calculate the distance from the airport (center/tower) to the location I have flown twice...

    Long distance test (32,000 feet)

    I got my Mavic pro a month ago and I love it. I thought I would try and long range test in the desert so there won't be any interference. Around the city, I can never get more than a couple thousand feet. Unfortunately, I thought I was recording my screen but I didn't. I got to 16,111 feet...

    Judging Horizontal and Vertical Distances

    I have been flying the Mavic for about 2 months now and have accumulated a little over 4 hours total flight time. I am having a very difficult time getting over the fear of crashing this thing and much of the fear comes from my inability to determine distance from an object horizontally and...

    First Kilometer

    Made it past the 1000 meter mark for the first time. I've been really quite timid, expanding my confidence in the reliability of the Mavic. It blows away anything I had in the analog R/C world by so much it's hard to believe it's real. The green flight path in the KML from HealthyDrones...

    7km+ distance, landing with 2% left

    Not sure if the smart battery has any juice below the official 0% to protect it from getting killed. If not, the battery may be toast but still a very impressive run.
