    Mavic suddenly jerked to the right while flying in woods

    Hi Guys, Was wondering if I could get some help from you. I was flying (Mavic Air) in a local woods (heavy tree canopy so I was about 2m off the ground and generally not flying over the tree canopy in that area). I was (from what I recall in Sports mode, so it's APAS would let me move more...

    GPS Connection

    Hi, I am a new member and the proud owner of a Mavic 2 Pro. I enjoy flying fixed wing radio control and dabble in helicopters. I am posting this more as a matter of possible interest than any problem with a drone but there may be a link here. I am a cyclist and a few days ago I was riding...

    GPS Could Go Haywire This Weekend

    I'm not sure if this will affect Mavics or not, but it could. Apparently, a bunch of GPS satellites will start to reset this weekend, which could cause GPS devices to go bonkers. Here's why your GPS could go haywire this weekend

    I've been told that it's best not to fly on April 6th because of a GPS reset which is due to happen then. Does anyone have more info about this? I for one am not going to risk it. Keith

    Recording precise gps locations with Mavic Pro

    Hi there, firstly - apologies for the noob question; I've tried searching this for the last week or so, but perhaps I'm not using the correct search terms. I'm looking for a way to record placemarkers during my flight which can then be viewed once I'm back in the office. Background: The...

    False drift reading

    When my mavic air is sitting on the ground, as soon as it connects to gps, the go4 app says it is moving even when it is sittung on the floor. I have recalibrated imu and compass but it still does it. I did a test fly yesterday and it flies fine. Hovers on spot very well. It only seems to do it...

    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. I didn't realize it would overwrite since I haven't actually flown the...

First some background - I'm filming some pyrotechnic testing and need top down views of the items under test. Each item is placed at a point and then ignited. Then some measurements are taken as well as...

    GPS coordinates way off

    I mapped an area using Drone deploy in south east UK. My client wanted to download the .geotiff files onto GIS - however it placed the map about 20miles north of where it should have been! I took the Lat / Long data from the exif data and again it showed the location to be way off by...

    No GPS data in SRT file for Mavic Air?

    Hello all! I just went from a Phantom 3 Advanced to a Mavic Air and I've noticed that the SRT files generated by the MA are completely different from the ones generated by the P3. While the P3 wrote something like this every second: HOME(14.1714,42.3449) 2018.02.27 11:39:37...

    Samsung S9+ GPS Interference

    Hi guys, Have been using DJI Mavic Pro to film parts of sports trainings for about 6 months. Everything was working perfectly until I changed from iPhone 7 to Samsung S9+ about a month ago. Since changing over, the GPS trackers on some of the players are not being transmitted to their...

    A question about controller differences - gps

    All: I'm just ramping up - have a mavic air coming and I see that it does not support the follow-me mode - so I'm going to use autopilot for that. I'm trying to understand why and think I've got it figured out. Can anyone confirm or deny that the mavic pro and spark have a gps in the remote...

    GPS Dead Spot?

    Hello again... Is it possible to have a GPS dead spot? My MP runs great with my Crystal Sky 5" display. I practice flying in my back yard and the surrounding 1/4 mile radius. The for 2nd day in a row I got disconnected from the RC in roughly the same area. I'm happy the Mavic came back to it's...

    Hi All. I am new to the group. I am based in Springs, South Africa. Have been enjoying my Mavic Air since I bought it at Dubai international 6 weeks ago. The past weekend RTH caused my Air to clip a small tree branch and it fell onto concrete onto its back. All seemed well until I realized...

    Launch from a moving ship?

    Hi there, With models like the Phantom, I've once read that you could launch the drone from a moving ship if you set it to Atti mode instead of GPS, to avoid the drone hovering away. I was wondering, would such a thing be possible to achieve with the Mavic Air? I recall it doesn't have an Atti...

    Hi all, Just got back from a trip to Bali where my Mavic Pro was playing up and driving me crazy! I was able to fly no problem for 2 days, and on the 3rd, taking off from the exact same spot, my drone kept trying to land straight after take-off.... After trying everything (firmware updates...
