    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...

    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...

    RTH obstacle avoidance in action

    I attempted to fly to a friends place on Pensacola Beach. Stayed out over the water most of the way and got to their cove and lost RC signal. Had the RTH height set to 150 feet as I thought that was plenty high enough over the water. Well, RTH course is a straight line to the home point, right...

    Mavic Saves Itself from Epic Pilot Error. Mistakes were made...

    Here's photographic proof that Return to Home Obstacle Avoidance really works. I'm flying around this mountain when I decide to do a scrim shot off of a prominance. I'm enjoying fixed wing mode making these really long passes shoothing 4K video. When all of a sudden I pull the biggest epic...

    Flying in P mode with obstacle avoidance

    Hello, I'm a new Swiss Mavic Pilot. I don't speak so good English so scuse for the sentences. At the beginning when I fly in P mode with obstacle avoidance, my Mavic speed was normally 30-35 km/h. Now it fly only 13-15 km/h. When I switch off the obstacle avoidance it fly at 45-50 km/h as say...
