    Drone Would Not Land - In Restricted Flight Zone - Badly Cut Index Fingers

    I was in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on vacation. I launched the Mavic 3 from the beach area on a beach chaise lounge. After flying it without issues, I tried to land the drone, but it came to a hover about 3’-0” or 4’-0” up in the air above the chaise lounge, but it would not land. The...

    Skips RTH and emergency lands

    Hello all. Twice in the past five or six flights my 2s went into "emergency landing" mode without any low battery warning or even going into RTH. When these happened I immediately looked at the battery indicator and it was in the red. I've never flown my batteries into the red. How it jumped...

    Mavic 2 Pro Night Time, Landing issue. Refuses to land manually or RTH.

    Last night I used my Mavic 2 Pro with full battery and when attempting to land manually the drone would turn on landing lights and stopped about 5 feet above the landing zone, I attempted to land with manual controls and the drone kept "bouncing" back up a couple inches each time I would attempt...

    Third time flying outside

    I was able to get in over an hour flying yesterday. I am getting more comfortable with the sticks. I do well heading away, and pretty good coming back. It's the east/west directions that I'm weakest with, but I am getting better. Yesterday I practiced general flying, landing, and started...

    How to estimate likely alt of manned aircraft landing

    I flew near an airport the other day, about 3 miles away. It was class E and I did the dji unlock zone thing. It was a somewhat overcast day, and I did not see or hear anyone using the airport for the two hours I was out there. It occurred to me that I don't know what the ranges for approach...

    Help reading logs understand what's happening.

    Newbie here. Problem? was learning how to use the Smart Gestures. Drone was following as intended and then suddenly landing. The propellers kept spinning fast. I ran over and grabbed my phone to control drone with phone. Later, in a different "session"/launch, it took off almost out of...

    RTH always about 3 metres from take off point

    Hello. Whenever I hit the RTH button (or the RTH screen icon) my Mavic 2 Pro will return but is always about 3 metres away from the take-off spot; I use a foldable heli-pad. I always cancel and then land manually. Is anyone else having this problem? I saw a video and the guy was describing the...

    2018-12-30 Precision Landing

    Went for a hike today and took my M2P with me just in case. The wind was mild, so I flew a few times, ran through 2.5 batteries. My goal was to try a few things (more on that in the future posts), including precision landing, which I was still uncertain about. So I decided to let the SW do its...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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...
