    Mavic Air Crash in forest

    So today, after more than 144 flights and 72km of experience, my Mavic Air crashed. I was flying it above some trees at around 120 meters. I wanted to return home, but it started landing itself. At the time, I was only around 250 meters away and still 15% battery left. Started looking for it...

    Flying in forests - loss of connection at distances over 500m

    Hi all, I am new to flying drones and have the Mavic Pro 2. I am using the drone to do forest canopy surveys but have encountered a problem in that I cannot fly further than 500m away without losing signal. I have looked into using waypoints but the limit in the DJI Go app is also 500m. I need...

    Forest Flying and a Double Rainbow at Priest Point Park

    The lush green of spring clothes every inch of the deep woodland realm of Priest Point Park. A bastion of tall trees and an emerald tapestry on the shores of Puget Sound, the park is a refuge from the hustle and bustle of Olympia, Washington State's capitol city. Forest flying is tricky, but I...

    May Flowers in the Temperate Rainforest

    Every day of spring in the temperate rainforest of the Pacific Northwest brings new wonders as life surges with the turning of the seasons. New flowers appear, bloom and subside into the cascading torrent of fresh green leaves so that from day to day the forest floor changes with shocking...

    Flying through Burfoot Forest - close quarters with the Mavic 2

    I filmed this video recently in this quiet forest park on the shores of Puget Sound. I decided to really put the obstacle avoidance capablities of my Mavic 2 Zoom to the test, as well as my nerves! For such a big drone the Mavic 2 is really quite adept at flying in tight spaces, though I did...

    Day trip in the Sierra Nevada

    Just a little day run up the hill to one of our favorite spots. Got some practice in, lining up shots and all. I still need lots of practice working all of my fingers at once. It's like directing an orchestra in the sky. Thanks for checking it out.

    Mountain Loop Pano

    I rode my bike up the closed Mt. Loop Hwy in the WA Cascades yesterday. Could only see a sliver of one mountain from the road but my M2P reveled this (Big Four mt. on L, Dickerman on R):

    Mavic Snow drifting problem

    I live in Michigan and I love the footage my drone gets in the winter BUT I have had many problems with the sonars and GPS(at 17 satellites) with my drones movements becoming unpredictable. Its decent when its 50ft up but anything close to the ground and it freaks out. I can stabilize it...

    Forest Flying

    Getting to be a bit more confident in my Mavic skills. Tried flying in the forest for the first time yesterday, Tripod mode is the only way I'd do it!

    Flying in heavy forest or jungle

    I am a new Mavic Pro Platinum and DJI goggles owner and have not yet flown. Next July I hope to take my drone with me to Africa and see if I can film some mountain gorillas. However, I am not sure what kind of terrain or vegetation conditions I will encounter. Does anyone have any...

    By the forest and by the sea...

    EDIT: 3rd video below Hi ! I've made my two first flights and videos. The first flight was in the forest: The second one by the sea in Normandy (France): Please feel free to criticize so I can improve my technique. Second video is in my opinion less dynamic... Thanks for watching

    How to fly and land the Mavic in a forested area?

    I am not sure if this has been discussed, but how would you fly and land the Mavic in a forested area? Specifically, a tropical forest. All the threads I have seen is of the Mavic flying over open terrain with a few trees here and there....or over a coastline. Assuming that you launch from a...
