    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...

    Mavic Air stopped/paused for 7-8 seconds in RTH

    Hi, I have been flying my Mavic Air for 2 months now. yesterday for the first time strangely it stopped mid air for 7-8 seconds while it was in RTH and then continues automatically and I am not able to figure out why. I was flying in sports mode then I changed it to P-GPS and initiated RTH...

    How to Return To Controller (Not Home)?

    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...

    RTH always about 3 metres from take off point

    Hello. Whenever I hit the RTH button (or the RTH screen icon) my Mavic 2 Pro will return but is always about 3 metres away from the take-off spot; I use a foldable heli-pad. I always cancel and then land manually. Is anyone else having this problem? I saw a video and the guy was describing the...

    Mavic Air Tap Fly

    Hello, Today I decided to do a time lapse with my Air. I've done many time lapses before with my DSLRs. I heard that you can do a time lapse with tap fly and interval setting in photo. It was going well I was getting great shots until. At about 900ft I lost signal, No big deal. I hit return...

    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...
