    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...

    New York City and No Fly Zones

    I got my Mavic a week ago and after spending a whole week watching videos and reading manuals (I like to be prepared and know what I'm doing before I send a drone in the air), I finally decided I was ready to take it out for a spin. It went well. A little bit later in the afternoon...I decided...

    First flight......no longer a Mavic virgin!

    Well....... it happened! Woke up this morning and couldn't hear any wind outside (it's been terrible here in the UK this week) so grabbed my phone and checked UAV Forecast and got a green light with 10-15mph winds! Got all my kit together and drove a short distance to some open countryside, did...

    First Mavic Pro Flights - impressions

    I am AMAZED. My Mavic arrived 2 days ago. No problems at ALL, no requirement for calibration or firmware. Everything connected flawlessly. First evening I set up all settings and checked it out carefully before powering it up. Then flew cautiously in tripod mode in my house. (I do a lot of...
