    Lost Mavic Mini (flew out of control)

    Hello! I was flying my Mavic Mini on a calm day, all preflight checks seemed okay and the drone was preforming as normal. I flew the drone above my house up to about 150ft above to get a view of the sunset. Then almost immediately the drone jolted out of control, it seems as if one motor or...

    Found mavic air @ sharks cove, Hawaii

    Hey I found a mavic air in sharks cove... the battery had acid on it and although it landed on land I didn’t look like the ideal spot to land, probably a crash landing? Lmk if you think this is your drone and I’ll verify if it is with you.

    Mavic 2 Pro - Hicksville, Ohio

    I lost a Mavic 2 Pro tonight around Hicksville, Ohio The GPS coordinates show it in a cornfield. I scoured the field but I could not find it. It appeared to fly crazy when it got near high tension power lines. If you see it, please let me know. I'm sure it's sad and lonely right now. :(

    Mavic 2 Lost to the Ages

    It’s a sad, sad day when you lose your drone. You leave the 99 to go after the one that’s lost and when you cannot find it you grieve. In anticipation of spring I decided to fly tonight because it was so calm out. The sun was nice this evening and it was all good. The drone flew high and the...

    2 Zoom Issues

    Hi everyone. I would call it ‘3 Zoom Issues’, but getting the top of my finger cut off by the props while trying to catch it in the air is just my own stupidity. 1. I was flying in Tijuana, Mexico and was about 2 miles away from the drone when it lost signal. I panicked, but thankfully it...

    Long story short: I lost my beloved Mavic Air yesterday afternoon. While flying a short litchi mission from my house, I lost contact with the drone (for the first time ever) about 3/4 of the way through the mission. Without panicking I hit the RTH button, expecting to hear the drone buzzing...

    Flyaway, over water, crash and... warranty replacement!

    I thought I’d share my first flyaway experience. Having flown everything from tiny training aircraft through to AscTec Falcon 8’s and heavy lift Octa’s both personally and commercially for about 7 years in 15 countries, I’m very lucky to have only had 1 major crash, my fault, lost orientation...

    Lost: Mavic Pro - Leucadia/Encinitas CA

    Lost my Mavic Pro last Saturday April 14th at Beacons Beach in Leucadia. It was a little confusing as to how I could not see the thing - later on video footage revealed that I landed it a little south of the Beacons Entrance past the wall. I think that it was far enough away to avoid the...
