    Mavic Air 2 signal problems.

    Hi, I've been browsing the MavicPilots forum with people having bad signal issues with their Mavic Air 2's just like me. Why is DJI not doing anything about it??? Why are they not releasing a firmware to fix it??? I'm very confused. I thought it was just me, but it's not. Thanks.

    Will AirSence (ADS-B) give you a weak signal?

    Hi, I live in South Africa where we use CE mode. I bought a Mavic Air 2 from Amazon in the USA. The AirSense function is not available on the Fly app. Does this mean that the AirSense is off when it's disabled? Does ADS-B make the Mavic Air 2 signal weaker? Thanks.

    Mavic Air 2 Booster?

    Hi, Is there any way to add parabolic signal boosters to the Mavic Air 2. I'm getting a very weak signal at around 1km (0.62 miles). With my Mavic 2 Zoom, I was getting over 5km (3 miles) with the parabolic boosters in the same area. Thanks for your help.

    Poor range with Mavic Air 2

    I've been flying my Mavic Air 2 in an urban area and I start losing connection before 2km. With my Mavic 2 Zoom, I was getting over 5km without a sweat in the same area. I was thinking that with my Mavic 2 Zoom, I was using the charging port on the controller to hook onto my phone instead of...

    Flying in forests - loss of connection at distances over 500m

    Hi all, I am new to flying drones and have the Mavic Pro 2. I am using the drone to do forest canopy surveys but have encountered a problem in that I cannot fly further than 500m away without losing signal. I have looked into using waypoints but the limit in the DJI Go app is also 500m. I need...

    Range

    I know that there is a certain range at which the drone returns to its launching position. Is it caused by the remote or the drone not being able to receive a signal. In other words, does the remote or the drone send a stronger signal

    Wifi & range Issue/Question

    Hello, When I am flying my drone, I only see a RC connection icon and satellites but no WiFi logo/icon. And in videos of people flying the mavic mini, I see that, so how can that be possible? I will attach screenshot of what I see (0 sattelites because I am inside just to test). My other...

    Signal Failure at Very Short Ranges

    I have 6.5 hours of flight time logged. Over the past few days, I have been getting signal failure with my Mini being only 30m directly above me (I used to be able to fly it at 100m and 1km away from the exact same location). Has anyone else had this problem? Do you have any recommendations?

    Mavic Air Range Problem/Question

    I wanted to do a range test with my Mavic Air. So I went to a location where there wasn’t much around me to interfere with the connection. I flew into the wind, but I only got about 3300 ft away before I started loosing connection to the drone. I even had trouble activating the return to home at...

    Poll-What kind of range are you REALLY getting with your Air?

    I've lost contact several times at about 3000 feet. In test on private land I lost it at 1000' or less with trees in between.

    Tracking >100m from home when using only phone?

    My MA seems to be working correctly, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to make it do what i want. Hoping for some suggestions? I want the MA to track me while i ride across large open fields on my mountain bike, without using the RC. Whenever possible, i fly with it, but the RC is not...

    Using a second drone to boost video range

    [NB: I'm just throwing this out there, because I lack the engineering prowess to pull this off as a modification.] Imagine having a small, second drone whose job is to park directly above you at your flight ceiling and RELAY control and video signals from you to your primary drone and back...

    Titan Drones Control Antenna

    I’ve been wanting to get this antenna for a few weeks. I went back and forth with it. I looked around for peoples reviews. Some people seemed to love them. Some people said they were snake oil. Very few people answered the questions I had. I’m not a tech wiz but I know what I wanted to know when...

    Range Trouble While in Mexico - Am I Using CE or FCC?

    I live in the US and am traveling in Mexico and I’m noticing significant decreases in range. I don’t know if this problem is because I’m now in an urban area (I normally fly in a more rural area) or DJI switched me to CE due to traveling in Mexico. I’m hoping that posting my screen shots will...

    Why inceased power consumption upwind?

    Does anyone know why the power consumption in sport mode at full speed is about 15% higher (from radar readings) when going upwind vs no wind at all, even though the tilt angle is the same at the maximum tilt angle of 35°? Using the moving slab of air concept shouldn't the power consumption be...

    Titan Drone cyclone antenna installed on remote for sale

    Purchased this remote + antennae along with a mavic from another well-known member on here. Not really interested in taking the drone really far out so I don't need the antennae personally. I have tested it 3 or 4 times and it seems to work fine (never tested it long range). No scratches or...
