    Landing Mavic pro on boat netting with propeller guards

    Hi, I am experimenting with Mavic Pro on a boat using a wide-flat netting and having DJI propeller guards fitted to Mavic. The proof of concept was to land and launch the Mavic from the boat netting with the downward sensors switched off. The netting helps to cushion off the roll, heave and...

    Mavic Flying Up By Itself

    Hello all, I purchased the mavic from a seller. I got a great deal but I have been having some issues. I am going to stay grounded until I can get some advice. Sometimes the mavic flys perfect but most of the time I am having an issue. When I do a manual take of everything is ok. I get up to...

    How do you fold a landing pad?

    I bought a foldable 80cm heli landing pad which came in a convenient circular carrying bag - great! The only problem is I can't work out how to re-fold it to get it back in the bag . Can anyone help please?

    Landing rubber tip where to get?

    I've lost recently one of the rubber tip sitting on the ground plate of the Mavic. Was not able to find it anywhere to get unless I purchase the whole ground plate or ask my buddy to print me one. Any idea where I can get this?

    Most irresponsible drone pilot of 2017!

    Mr. "NS films&editing" flew very close to NFZ airport and basically was touching planes while they’re landing. I hope this guy will be punished somehow and serve as an educational example for others. Here’s an original footage of this incident:

    Landing updates the homepoint?

    If I land somewhere and take off again why would I want to make that my new homepoint? Is there a way to turn that off?

    Auto tripod mode for landing

    I almost went into the lake yesterday when a slight unexpected gust threw me off target after my drone accepted the landing zone and began descending. My over corrections didn't help any. That being said if maybe I had toned down controls and also the ability to adjust height on my own instead...

    Night flight test - ambient light and vps

    Couple of days ago I did a small test flying over an empty field during the night it was just after 10pm so not completely dark yet, I had my vps ON, landing was rather easy as usual, no surprise at this point but... 9min flight - no wind at all, perfect weather condition, no strong lights...

    What's your most epic story?

    I remember flying my first drone, a phantom 3. I flew it out to sea and didn't realize that when the battery is low, the phantom will automatically fly back. I took off on a cliff so I started panicking. Worried that the drone will crash or landing in water. Luckily, I stayed 'semi calm' and...

    Mavic goes into Auto-land and CAN'T cancel!!! help

    Was flying about 100 ft up and descending when the mavic went into auto-land. I was used to this happening and I expected to be able to cancel by throttling up. No matter how I throttled up, the mavic wouldn't go up. No matter what I did I couldn't cancel auto land. I tried the pause button...

    Skyscraper rooftop takeoff/landing

    I ordered my Mavic (my first DJI drone) a few days ago and was wondering if it was possible or safe to take off from a rooftop about 30 stories up. I live close to the beach and a park, and would fly it over those places, but I find it much more convenient to take an elevator up to the roof...

    Where is this 1cm landing feature? Who's had luck?

    Maybe it's me and how I fly but I'm not seeing the 1cm on RTH that I heard about. I could have been messing around with the settings at the time, I've only had it a day but every time I landed today it wasn't in the same exact spot. Am I doing it wrong?
