    Mavic 2 Pro - broken landing leg, DIY part replacement?

    Hi, guys! I am usually not that impatient but I got my Mavic 2 Pro today. I was sleepy, I was impatient, I was stupid. Bottom line - I crashed it. The result are broken propellers and a broken landing leg on the front right arm. The LED's wires were cut but (I think) the antenna's wire was...

    High Tech Redneck

    I took the big plunge and bought a new upper power board, a flat ribbon cable, GPS/Compass #1 unit , heat sink fan, right front foot, and upper cover. After a few hours of reconstruction, botta bioom, botta bing, i'm back in the air. Bought a $7 soldering iron at Walmart. Spent some time price...

    Anybody do anything interesting with their case's leftover foam?

    Has anyone done anything interesting/useful with the leftover foam from their Mavic cases? It's nice, dense foam that feels like it could be useful. But right now it's just garbage taking up space in my closet. Just looking for ideas. Thanks

    I DESTROYED my drone!!!!

    Before you watch I just want to reiterate that I knew the possibilities and take full responsibility for what had happened. Nobody was hurt, injured or effected by this except for me. I made this video to remind people of the possible dangers that could come from flying a drone no matter how...

    What would you 3D print for your Mavic?

    This isn't really a MOD subject, more about accessories. I purchased myself a 3D printer in Nov. 2017. Since then I have become pretty proficient with 3D design (Fushion 360) and printer operation. I see some cool stuff available for drones on sites like thingiverse.com but haven't tried them...

    My Incredibly Easy and Free Way to Mount the 5.5 Crystalsky to the Mavic Pro Controller

    Given the expensive and / or elaborate solutions to mounting the 5.5 inch Crystalsky to the Mavic Pro controller, I'm a little surprised that no one has tried this: Simply removed the three screws from the bottom of each Mavic controller arm and slide the rubber feet out. The added width is...

    Minimal Packing for Mavic Pro, Fly More, MavMount, Hoodman and extra gear!

    For the pilot, space is always a commodity! The beauty of the Mavic Pro is the size and portability, but adding gear is a problem! The Magic Pro with Fly More package barely fits in the bag, but what if you want to use a iPad, or a MavMount, or the Hoodman or another battery? In this video I...

    DIY Polarizing Filters

    A while back I found a web site called 3DLens.com (I am not associated) which sells polarizing film out of Taiwan. There are a few different sizes and types which are dirt cheap, so I figured I would give it a shot. The site has a minimum order of $10, so I ordered an assortment of films to...
