    My first flight - bad packaging and hot iphone 12

    So, I received my mini 2 from adorama and the packaging wasn’t very good. The shippers didn’t put any bubble wrap or peanuts in the shipping box which in turn allowed the shipping box to get crushed on one side. This affected the “Fly More Combo” box as well. It got crushed on one side as well...

    That was bloody terrifying! I'm hooked!

    First ever drone flight today with my (drunk purchase) Air 2 and it was bloody terrifying! No one said it would be! I don't even think the first time I did a solo in a fixed wing I was this worried! I walked out with confidence, did all the pre-flight checks, remembered to click record after...

    Payload impact on battery life of Mini 2

    Hi All - Does anyone know if there is a maximum payload rating for the Mini 2? I don't see one in the manual. Has anyone put together a chart of payload weights and impact on battery life? My Mini 2 arrived Wed, 12/30, my batteries are charged, getting ready to connect and turn everything on...

    First Flights Ever- initial impression is definitely positive

    First Flight ever with a drone, didn't even know how to use activetrack or anything?‍♂️. Second video was a few days later. I feel like it can't be that bad of a drone if its this easy to use and its only $800. The shots you can get can be helicopter status and when you average out the number of...

    First Flight in MM resulted in three Motor Speed errors

    I was happy to get my MM in the air for it's first flight (I read the manual entirely and read a lot of forums on the MM before attempting the first flight) which is my first in a drone (flew RC helos)! I was dismayed that I got a "motor speed" error about 30 seconds into the first flight with...

    First drone. First flight. First footage...

    First flight of my Mavic Mini CE over Milton Keynes in Bucks, England. The Peace Pagoda is located at Willen Lake and was the first in the UK. Overall I am pleased with the results though I am disappointed with the Drones range. Anyone have a Mavic Pro in the UK or the Platinum or 2 Pro and...

    First flight (in backyard in beginner's mode)

    Nothing fancy, but it sure was fun. Compared to the little electric RC airplanes I have flown in the past, this was soooo easy and relaxing :) This is especially relevant given the winds we had this morning. I kept it low and slow and did well (I think anyway)

    Mavic Pro just had it´s maiden flight

    and it was exhilarating to say the least! after all the CS and Mavic firmware updates, gimbal, IMU and compass calibrations it was time to go fly! Definitely a little scary due to nerves i completely forgot what was forward backward, up down etc haha After launching upwards it just hovered rock...

    Christmas Day First Flight - Firmware?

    Hey all happy holidays. Tomorrow I unbox my Mavic Pro Plat. I have been reading a lot and watched a ton of videos even before selecting for purchase. The big question for tomorrow is firmware. I don’t know what version it shipped with and I thought I read the app forces you to update during...

    Overcoming Flight Jitters

    Maybe one of you can point me to resources that might provide a learning path for the Mavic. I feel like I need a tutorial of sorts, one that suggests things to try on your first, second, nth trips. Why? Well, I unboxed it, read much of the manual, and got genuinely spooked with the possibility...

    1st Flight - Sugar Land, TX - (Taken from Oyster Creek Park)

    First flight with Mavic. I'm not a professional by any means. This is with a sun-shield only. No lens filters. Used Autostitch to create the pano. The main area of park is bottom left-of-center where the white canopy is (I need to work on centering better). The photos were taken from roughly...

    First (real) flight and lost video

    After a few batteries worth in Beginner mode ( I had a Phantom 2 so sort of know how to control a drone ) off I went for my first real flight / shoot. We are surrounded ( blighted? ) by windfarms in this area, and personally, i think they look stunning. Gauging the height needed to fly...

    First Flight Lasted 6 Seconds and Crashed

    Hey Guys, I took my mavic out this morning just to get it in the air for the first time in front of my house. I took off and it immediately started spinning fast and out of control with no stick input so I shut the motors off and it crashed. I had 14 satellites and was flying in beginner mode...
