    DJI Mavic Pro No GPS

    Hey everybody I've been having an issue of no GPS on my Mavic Pro after a crash that I had. I looked for a flight log, but I think it was overwritten since I have been turning the AC on to calibrate and test after repairs.

    Compass error, Yaw error, IMU error and so on.

    Hi When i fly my Mavic Pro last night i got a lot of compass error, GPS error, Yaw error, IMU error and even "Weak GPS Signal", but it was connected to 23 satellites, so it should not be weak/bad GPS-signal. What could the reason be for all this errors? I landed the Mavic and restarted it and...

    Read before replacing Gimbal

    Replacing a damaged Gimbal is fairly straight forward. I picked one up on Amazon for $220 U.S. One main thing to watch out for is when separating the upper cover of the drone in order to gain access to the Gimbal mounting screws, be mindful of the GPS wiring harness located in the rear section...

    GPS Signal Error Message--Home Point Me.

    I live in Cancun which in itself contributes to issues. I have an Iphone 6 and all my MP software / firmware is up to date. I can sit on my balcony and Waze, Google Maps, GPSTracks, etc. all exactly pinpoint where I am. When I hook my phone to my RC, when on the balcony, I will get a 5 GPS...

    What are "polar areas"?

    According to the Mavic Manual, flights in P-mode in "polar areas" are not possible (page 50). I was flying in northern Finland and experienced quite frequent drops from GPS to Atti mode in mid flight, and GPS was not recovered for 1-2 minutes - quite scary. Analysing the log files, I noticed GPS...

    Hi, I'm new to drone flying and had a very strange experience with my Mavic the second day I took it out. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out what happened. I'm ok if the answer is pilot error, but if so, I'd like to know what I did to prevent it happening again. Here's what happened...
