    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...

    Turtle speed in gps mode

    In gps mode, my top speed is 10mph, it should be around 22mph. In sports mode, it is normally reaching 40-45mph. Is there any configuration related to this That I should check ?

    Return to Position

    Morning all, I may have missed this but i thought you guys would know if this is possible! 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...

    Follow Me (GPS) in Mavic Air through SDK

    Hi there, I've been following this forum since I purchased my Mavic Air and I've recently seen that the SDK release has allowed to implement waypoints feature for Mavic Air through Litchi app. As it is specified in the SDK documentation (Missions - DJI Mobile SDK Documentation) it seems that...

    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...

    Need a air GPS module

    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...

    Fake GPS + Android 8 + Mavic Air

    Well, I have a problem. Nokia 6 + Android 8.0 + Mavic Air. Despite running Floater (Fake GPS), clearing the cache (Floater), setting the default GPS in the programmer options on Floater, Dji Go 4 can not see the fake location. Important! The dot of my location indicates the current, right...

    Drone Help for Project

    Hi all, For my project I am trying to get an accurate positioning of a Mavic PRO drone while in flight, I understand you can obtain the flight log with DJI assistant. Is there a way to obtain the flight log without this software? Also, will the altitude from the Mavik flight data be measured...

    Mavic Pro keeps auto-landing in GPS mode

    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...

    Mavic Air vs Spark: GeoTag Data

    Hi, Can anyone confirm that the Air writes full geotags with decimal seconds in JPEG images? The Spark was a huge disappointment because the geotags that it writes are truncated which makes it almost useless for photogrammetry. (The Spark does not record decimal seconds in JPEG images.) From...

    GPS encounters disconnect, please reset and check connection

    So I've had the Mavic Pro Platinum for about ten days - very impressed with it (I also fly an Inspire 1 RAW and an Inspire 1 XT infrared, a Yuneec Typhoon and a Phantom 3 as a basic trainer). Two days ago, when I set up the drone to take off, the controller had this message: "SYS WARNING CHECK...

    How does the maivc tell the time?

    Hi Guys just a quick one, Im doing a thesis on the mavic pro and need to determine how the time is stamped onto the image. I originally presumed it was GPS time, but when i ran the images through an exif viewer the GPS time wasn't there. Cheers let me know

    High Data Usage on iPhone?

    Got my iPhone bill and went way over my data allowance. I'm assuming that this is a result of me connecting my iPhone to the controller. If this is the case is there a way to stop data usage without running into problems flying the drone? I'm assuming the GPS is streaming data through my...
