    Hello, I am curious why is Airsense disabled on the Mavic Air 2 in Europe but not on the Air 2S. Any thoughts? I recently stumbled upon this post where someone said that the ADS-B module is actually present inside the drone, it just isn't working. Pretty weird...

    Damage assessments.

    Are there any valid statistics on serious injury or property damage caused by recreational flying? Is there significant governmental overreach with the proposed new ID regulations? Is the FAA proposing a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist?

    Hello FAA (or Nat'l Equalivent) or . . . Confessions Are Good For The Soul

    It really does give me humor and horror when I read and realize how many pilots out there, (in the many wonderful lands around the globe), lend themselves to self confession. Examples are varied and many of the violations. Violations either by mistake or on purpose. Violations such as "I did...

    Safe Controller Charging

    Hey folks. I've had my Mavic for about a month and didn't consider battery safety at all when I bought it. Fast forward that month and I've opted for the "better safe than sorry" approach and bought a Bat-Safe and some LiPo bags. I figure my house and family's lives are worth more than the $80...

    Birds: dangerous?

    How high is the risk of bird collisions? I was flying over a wetland area when suddenly this appeared: It happened a second time a few seconds later. Given the wide field of view of the camera, they must have been pretty close. I freaked out and went straight up immediately. How dangerous...

    Nvidia Shield K – unsafe to fly?

    Given the fairly consistent DJI Go 4 crashes while using the Nvidia Shield K tablet, I suggest that for safety reasons it is irresponsible to fly the Mavic-Nvidia-Go combination. Has anyone experienced this software crashes and found a solid solution? Jan 7 2017: Haven't had a single problem...
