    Field test of advanced RTH

    I would like to share small video I have made of how advanced RTH feature works in real life. Last weekend I was flying on my Mavic 3 and suddenly was caught by tall building standing right between me and my drone. Signal went from max to zero in less than one second and advanced RTH was...

    DJI software bug surrounding authorised boundaries caused me to lose my drone to the sea

    I'm going to save myself time and link to the reddit thread. I'm hoping some of you can help me out by reading the log and telling me if I have an argument here for a replacement. For ease, the log can be found here: https://www.phantomhelp.com/logviewer/27TN7YSF5GEJ6ND6RD1X I also...

    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...

    Do you just wait for Home Point to register?

    Hi all. I took off and flew today and after about 15-20 seconds, it told me that the home point had been updated and when I tested this with RTH, it flew back to where the drone was at that point I mentioned (above a lake!!). Does the home point just register at a certain point, ie - should I...

    Air 2 Return-to-Home Example

    I thought that a video of a typical return-to-home example might be reassuring for new drone owners, or those considering buying one, and since a search didn't show a recent video I decided to post my own. I took off from a launch pad with a distinct pattern, hovered at about 20 feet up to...

    Mavic 2 Pro Night Time, Landing issue. Refuses to land manually or RTH.

    Last night I used my Mavic 2 Pro with full battery and when attempting to land manually the drone would turn on landing lights and stopped about 5 feet above the landing zone, I attempted to land with manual controls and the drone kept "bouncing" back up a couple inches each time I would attempt...

    Lost signal, but M2 Zoom hovered, drone never returned to home

    I started flying over a river in Illinois yesterday from a bluff about 100’ above water level. At 2:29 into the flight as I was turning to fly up stream over a spillway I got a sudden loss of connection 0.3 seconds after warning of weak connection. I was at about 100 feet above the water (log...

    Mavic Mini Crashed into the Fjord

    Hi Guys, Seems I'm not the only one who has had this happen to them! Basically, I had my drone up over a nice harbor area here in Oslo and I wanted to get some video footage flying in towards the shore. All was well for a few minutes, I received a high wind warning so I descended but started to...

    Mavic Mini Return to Home Tutorial (RTH)

    I've seen a lot of discussion about the Return to Home (RTH) feature of the Mavic Mini, so I decided to put together a tutorial about it. There are some important safety tips I discuss that I haven't seen discussed in any other videos. Let me know if you think I've missed anything important.

    Mavic mini - RTH function inoperative?

    Hi Just made my first ever drone flight with my new Mini and I am mightily impressed! One thing I couldn’t work out was the RTH function. I set a RTH location and the app told me that the location had been set OK. But when I tried it the app said the drone would land at current location which...

    Litchi Mission Gone Wrong

    I have a Mavic Pro flying a mission made using Litchi. I’ve flown this route 5 times and never had a problem. On my latest flight, a System Error/Check App message appeared on screen, and mode went to ATTI, even though screen was showing 20 sats. I spent too much time looking at the screen...

    Hi all, My first post here. Been flying Phantom's for work over last few months and now invested in a Mavic 2 for my own use. About to get a Smart Controller and trying to find way to set to Return to controller and not home. Perhaps this is a Go 4 question but thought I would start off with...

    PGYTECH Prop Guards tested

    I just bought and tested some PGYTECH prop guards and they work quite well. I do aerial videos for realtors in the northern suburbs of Chicago, and recently they have asked me to also do interior video. I don't have a photography background, but I am finding the Mavic2 works pretty well for...

    Question: how to *NOT* RTH?

    I would like my AC (Mavic 2 Pro) to NOT record RTH, and hence do not warn me when it thinks it went too far away and now needs to return back. The general low battery warning should suffice. The problem I'm having right now is that when I hike (and use Active Tracking), I may end up 1-1.5 miles...
