    DJI: Faulty battery? We’ll sell you another — full price

    Gotta love those Communists. One of my five Mavic Pro batteries had terminal cell failure yesterday. It’s been used fewer than 15 times. I requested a replacement after reading advice to a similarly-affected pilot on this forum. DJI’s response: “No worries, we will provide you with the best...

    Gimbal Drift AND Panorama Failures (Android/Google Pixel 2)

    Hey fam, looking for some help. I have done the IMU, Compass, and Gimbal calibrations in different orders a multitude of times indoors and out and I still have massive gimbal horizon drift. It's off by 5+ deg to either side throughout flight. Horizon tilts when I have any yaw input, or it just...

    Suggestions for Moverio engineers? Magnetic port for attaching wire. No hardwired tether, fail point

    Okay so i've been a fan of head mounted displays for about 15 years now. One thing ive noticed with similar goggles is the tethering wire. I've had a few models of Vuzix goggles, Headplay, some brands that dont exist anymore. Their main crutch or fail point was their main tethering wire. I would...

    Firmware update killed the Mavic

    Hi guys I tried to update to the new firmware, and a long the way it must have failed. I now have a Mavic that i can't connect or get in touch with at all. The Mavic powers on, but the fans doesn't start which makes it extremely hot. The RC doens't register it all all and just blinks...

    My mavic crashed into the Ocean. I filmed the attempted rescue.

    I'm still not sure exactly what happened. It was bloody emotional as I'm really attached to the little guy. At least I managed to make a sweet video of the experience. Always look on the bright side. Will update if I get any info from the logs that shine a light on the cause of crash (I'm...

    Return to home, tree in the way

    At least I'm assuming it was RTH triggered and obstacle avoidance kicked it, sure looks that way.

    Iphone 5s fail to connect to Mavic Pro

    Hi guys, I've recently got my hands on mavic pro. With lots of hope and expectations I went and charge up my batteries and RC hoping I could give it a test flight ASAP. To my disappointment (and lots of frustration) I could not get my iphone5s to connect my mavic pro via DJI GO 4 I've tried...

    Try my Mavic, buddy!

    So I have given over control to others in the past, after the drone was high enough and far from obstacles. But this can also happen: Feel free to skip the first 50 seconds.

    Suicide by Mavic

    The take home point: When you fly into yourself, 1) Enable OA 2) Disable sports mode.

    MAVIC FAIL BUT AMAZING SERVICE FROM DJI

    I live in Australia in Townsville and was one of the first to prepay on the release of the mavic.And one of the first to get it... As they said in the original release "FIRST IN , FIRST SERVE" anyway mine was faulty.... Long story short, I contacted DJI Support and a lady there named "UNA SONG"...
