    Help on Downlink data connection lost for 60 seconds

    Hi everyone, I own Mavic Pro for a while and for the first time I experienced Downlink data connection lost message. The Mavic lost connection with the RC and returned to home for three times. I was flying in a very wide area in a green field, surrounded by a rock and hills, but I didn't flew...

    Shutting off RTH for a remote landing...

    Hello - I just got a Mavic 2 Zoom. I know this is the Mavic Pro area, but I think the answer to my question is probably the same for all Mavics. I believe they all use the same app, but I didn't see a forum for the app. I watched YouTube video from an owner who lost his Mavic because it tried...

    my drone autopiloted into tree, fell 50 ft onto grass then tarmac!?!?!?

    I was piloting my mav air from one side of my street to another at twilight. I know it wasn't the best time I was at 8 ft about to land when the battery fell critically low. the drone autopiloted to around 50 ft, which is half of what rth height should be, and flew straight into a tree which was...

    Low Battery RTH works as advertised. Too bad the pilot wasn't that smart.

    Two days ago I was feeling perky and thought I'd test the Low Battery RTH. Well, I thought I was within 20 meters (less than 60ft I thought) from home at 18 ft. high . Low battery RTH (16%) went into operation. To my chagrin, my MA did exactly what it was supposed to do. It adjusted its...

    RTH causes crash

    My Mavic Pro crashed yesterday as I foolishly didn't turn off the RTH feature while flying in a ravine which was densely populated with trees. I was just finishing up and was cleared to land about 30 feet or so from the takeoff spot when the RTH feature took control and started to vertically...

    Smart RTH overprotective nanny....or is it.

    I recently upgraded from Mavic pro to Platinum, and I keep finding myself returning to home thinking I was low on battery. This internal clock needs to be reset because the Platinum seems to fly forever. On the best day of the year here in the Pacific northwest I decided to do a distance run...

    Lesson Learned, importance of pre-flight checklist

    I want to share with you a quick experience with a lesson that might become useful for some of you. I'm very beginner in this field but been photographer for quite sometime. During our last hiking trip to Slovakia, I tried to fly the drone almost on daily basis and whenever the weather...

    Got in panic with police and lost Mavic. Critical battery vs RTH?

    Writing one of those posts I hoped I’d always read and never need to write myself... Driving home on the freeway, saw a really beautiful sunset in a particularly scenic place that ‘needed’ to be filmed. Pulled over on the side of the road and flew the Mavic around for a full battery worth of...

    Mavic Pro Loss if control video

    Hi all. Here is a video of when my Mavic lost signal to my remote and did automatic return home. It’s an older video but still good tips. I really would love any new subscribers as YouTube changed things and now I’m pushing for 1k .. half way there :) Enjoy the video

    NEW PILOT RTH Question

    OK.. Lets say you have RTH set to 150'. Is that AGL no matter where the drone is? In other words.... The drone is coming home straight line and comes into terrain that is higher than the route you just flew over... Will it auto adjust to the terrain at the set 150'?? Thanks ....I'm sure I'll...

    RTH. Is this something you use?

    It's been awhile since I been on this board. Coincidentally, I looked at my account today and learned that I ordered my MP 1 year ago on this very day, so it's a birthday of sorts for me. Since I had to wait a bit for her to arrive, I wonder when's my official cut off date for DJI Care refresh...

    RTH Question

    I have my Mavic Pro set up so that if it loses contact with the RC, it will rise up 100 feet and come back home and land. I assume that it will go up, point to home and then fly a straight line back. I do a lot of flying in the rugged desert mountains in Arizona, up canyons and around mountains...

    Return to Home from altitude below takeoff point

    Greetings. First message here. I myself do not own a DJI product yet, but will most likely soon. I've been watching videos and following discussion threads for some time to see what the capabilities and occasional flaws (and their consequences) are. I do have a 'toy grade" drone that I practice...

    How to increase Signal Lost RTH delay?

    Does anyone know of a setting in DJI GO 4 or a flight parameter via Assistant 2 and Dev mode that will allow me to increase the delay between the aircraft losing signal with the controller and the initiation of Return to Home? I am trying to film via the point of interest mode. The subject is a...

    RTH Accuracy when switching Apps

    Does anyone know if Precision RTH is disabled when switching between DJI Go 4 and Litchi? Here's what happened this morning. After a few days of no flying due to awful weather I went outside today. Did a full re-calibrate of IMU, Compass and Gimbal in DJI Go 4. Everything was good. Did an auto...

    Return-To-Home (RTH) works! (plus a caution)

    Just wanted to post a BIG POSITIVE for the Mavic Pro. Doing a small job at a high school yesterday, beautiful day, everything seemed normal. I had the Mavic hovering about 20 feet AGL and the controller signal dropped and stayed out. In two years of ownership, I have never had RTH kick in...

    RTH question: aircraft location or remote controller location?

    Hey guys, I am a newbie flying my MP and have question before I start messing with the settings. What would be the best approach on setting RTH if you are on a boat moving around islands and flying MP while on the go? I have a filming scenario taking off from a boat and following us until we...
