obstacle avoidance

  1. f13dfx

    Need advice on settings for launching off a cliff or a boat & flying out over open sea.

    Will be going iceberg hunting in the East Coast & have never flown over open seas. I have flown several times over rapids with my Mavic 2 Pro before I acquired my Mavic 3. Here are a few of my questions: 1. Do I set my RTH to “Smart RTH”. Something tells me I should not set via height...

    Obstacle Avoidance Test with ActiveTrack 5.0

    Took the new Mavic 3 for a spin, a Lamborghini driver kindly offers me a ride, and so I offered to shoot his car. And then when performing a Front Track using ActiveTrack 5.0; a tree came up behind the Mavic 3.... Glad it worked!

    Mavic flies sloppy in Bypass mode, in Brake or Off it flies normally - bug or intentional feature?

    Hello, I have an issue with my mavic air 2 that when I use the Bypass obstacle mode it flies very sloppy, and it is very sensitive to control sticks! Also it sometimes randomly slows down and speeds up without warning when there are no obstacles, especially when flying diagonally. I noticed this...

    Mavic Air approaching obstacle

    Fellow Pilots I own Mavic Air 1 that I fly very occasionally, and I have noticed a strange behaviour of my drone. Although the default obstacle avoidance options are ON, the drone has a tendency to approach obstacles when closeby. When that happens, I am unable to use the controller to...

    Has anyone found a way to disable obstacle avoidance?

    I've been flying my Mavic Mini for a few weeks now and am yet to find a way to turn off the bottom obstacle avoidance. Any tips would be great! Thanks in advance.

    Magnetic interference & obstacle avoidance issues

    Hi there, I had an issue yesterday flying nearby a photovoltaic solar farm. On turning on the Mavic, I very quickly got the message "Magnetic interference" (or something close) displayed on the remote. I thought this would be fixed by calibrating the compass - although not 100% sure that these...

    Backup IMU Warning – Can that happen once?

    On my last flight yesterday (the drone was maybe 20m above me when that happened) I had a short disconnect, which unfortunately is not displayed on the flight recordings in the DJI Go 4 app when the flight is being played back. But what I do see is a few warnings that I'm not sure about because...

    Times obstacle avoidance has failed you?

    Obstacle Avoidance (Mavic Air) has saved me so many times, I have never crashed it due to this feature. But I have had some EXTREMELY close calls with obstacle avoidance, to the point I wondered if it was on! Have you had some close calls or has it ever failed?

    Obstacle avoidance error

    Please be gentle I am a beginner but learning as I go and still in one piece! I had a nice flight today with my new Mavic Pro and after about 10 mins decided to bring it home. All was fine until it got above "home" and wouldn't come down, saying Obstacle avoidance on the controller. I brought...

    Active Track Crash (Obstacle Avoidance?)

    Hi guys, i started testing the Active Track Mode (Follow car) and unfortunately crashed my Mavic Pro against a tree :/ The crash was probably my fault as i relied too much on the automated flight. I even saw the tree on the screen (i wasn't driving the car myself) but thought the mavic would...

    Initial impressions: Costco US$1299 MPP+goggles

    First timer here, picked up Costco's spring 2018 Mavic Platinum Pro (MPP) with DJI Goggles US$1299 bundle last week at my local store, and subsequently read/watched reviews to decide whether 1) it's a good deal, and 2) would I prefer the smaller/smarter/cheaper Mavic Air (MA), as suggested by...

    Mavic Goes Slow - Really Slow (Solved!)

    Another problem Solved. I’m not sure what started this but it may have been a firmware update. My mavic would only go 5-6mph in the horizontal plane. It would go up and down much faster. Horizontal movement was very sluggish as well. I tried updating firmware from app, resetting the gain and...
