    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...
