    Mini SE Ignores commands and crashes! Why?

    So yesterday, I was going to fly my Mini SE around for a bit. I did a manual takeoff, but it appeared to take much longer than usual to takeoff. I didn't think much of it until I pressed the left joystick up to make the drone go higher, and it didn't do anything. Out of instinct, I also pressed...

    Hello, I lost my Mini 2 about 2 days ago. I was hovering over a grassy field beyond visual line of sight. I was watching the video feed when the drone began to spin uncontrollably. I lost connection with the drone shortly after. I reviewed the flight logs which indicated that the drone began to...

    Why did my Mavic Air decide to land on water?

    Problem? I cannot understand what went wrong. Pilot error, rookie mistake, interference ? Was unit in a crash? Yes, I think this qualifies as a "soft" crash since it landed on water and sank. After 10 hours, a diver was able to recover the unit but I don't think I will try to make it fly...

The golf course was built on top of a field beside an old smelter and there is a lot of slag, metallic, rock waste in the area. (It was actually built on top of the stuff.) I have flown my...
