    M3P RFID disabled w/ 249gr battery?

    Since viewing this Pilot Institute weekly update, I've been searching in vain trying to find any details, including the update number. As reported, a "recent" update has removed RFID when using the 249g battery. Anybody have any information on this? If true, it's a really dumb ( or shrewd)...

    Lens filtration

    Hi there, I have been using my Mavic Mini for photogrammetry to create 3D models of archeological sites for several years and now want to try some multispectral imaging using filters over the camera lens. Of particular interest are the red and near-infrared parts of the spectrum for changes to...

    Gimbal Shake

    Hi All, This is a relatively new Mini 3 Pro and it seems to be having gimbal issues. Doesn't always happen but I caught a video of it today after running the calibration twice on it... Any suggestions? I am using the Freewell clear lens on it for protection. Any suggestions on further...

    Hello guys! I'm new into posting any threads but here's my first. I've got a problem with my Mini, when I turn it on, it works normally, the gimbal starts moving/checking all axels but it gets stuck to the right/left. I had a small crash, where I did get sand in the gimbal. After a deep clean I...

    DJI offered 70€ off replacement mavic mini that flew off, good deal?

Is this a good deal? (I appreciate its better then nothing) however funds are short so paying for...

    The Mavic Mini in the lousy climate of Denmark! (See my PS)

    Hi! :-) I am the happy owner of a DJI Mavic Mini (version 1) - which is a great toy! During the winter I have played with my Litchi app looking forward to spring, when I could get my drone in the air again. I am allowed to fly around many places in Denmark with my Mavic Mini as it weights...

    Litchi App and DJI RC Pro

    I’m brand new to this Litchi app but it advertises the functionality of what I need my drone(s) to do. I am using an iPhone Pro Max 1TB and the stock controller for my Mavic Mini, but I also have a Mini 2, an Air 2S and a Mavic 3 that I’d like to use Litchi with. I am also using a iPad Pro 12.9”...

    Will my phone fit in a mavic mini SE controller?

    I recently got a new phone that is 6.6 inches (167mm) however, I read that the maximum phone size is 160 mm. Will it still fit in the Mini SE controller?

    DJI mini1/mini2 air2/air2s " 40011 or 40021 error elimination"

    40011 is generally due to the gimbal crooked after replacing the gimbal components, and an error is reported after the gimbal is calibrated. The usual solution is to log in to DJI's internal account, and then you can see the special firmware, which can be restored to normal after flashing the...

    Mini Tree takedown.

    No, the Mini didn't take down a tree, and none of the trees took down the Mini. I flew my Mavic Mini to record my neighbour's dead pine tree being cut down. These same guys did some work for us over on our side of the waterfall the week before. He cuts off the branches on his way up the tree...
