    Mini 2 More fun than my mavic or my mini…

    So I thought I’d give the DJI FPV a go… man, it’s a challenge learning to fly its “manual” mode. Video and photography isn’t ideal on it like my mini 2 but wow, is it fun to fly! Check out my first flight with some flips and stuff here! I’m on the PFV pilots site too now!

    2.2mph minimum speed in tap fly - frustrating

    Hi All, Just bought my first drone (Mavic Air 1) a few weeks ago, just before I saw Mavic Air 2 announced ?. Anyway, I'm new to drones and photography and really enjoying learning about both right now! So, I have a dilemma, I want to create a hyperlapse that doesn't cover a lot ground. For...

    Telemetry Overlay for Mavic (and other models) in After Effects

    Hey guys, I've been working on a system that uses the SRT flight telemetry to create customizable gauges in After Effects: a dashboard with speedometer, GPS path, altitude, heading, distance, ISO, shutter speed and f-number. Here's a demo and a tutorial: There's also a tool to export the...

    Mavic Air slower after 6 months

    I had the MA updated with the .500 firmware and have realized that the speed was slower (60kmh downwind, 50kmh upwind in sports mode, 23-25kmh in pmode). I then thought a little about the speed recently on the .400 and found the speed was pretty much the same recently. I remembered that even the...

    Need More Performance Data for MA

    No doubt you have to factor headwind/tailwind into your planning for a flight, and plan to land with a reserve. However, there’s another thing to consider: should you fly in Normal or Sport Mode? If you have a headwind that is half of your max speed in Normal Mode, wouldn’t you be better off...

    Increasing maximum speed for Course Lock mode?

    I've been using my Mavic Pro a lot lately to get footage of one of my friends sky skiing, which I have to be in sports mode for because he skis at around 35-40km/h, but course lock would make it so much easier to shoot. From my small tests, it seems that in normal mode in course lock, I can get...

    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...

    Forward reverse speed differences?

    So I used to be an engineer by profession and I'm prone to analyze things. I decided to do a test of actual flight time using Litchi to fly a long mission that in reality was a limited area in case something went wrong. This morning was perfect - winds generally from the southwest about 5-6...

    Action shots of cars drifting

    I noticed that there doesn't seem to be a lot of action footage out there so I thought I would treat you all with some. I recorded these guys drifting around an abandoned road system in FL. Recording them in action was some of the most fun I have ever had. I'm still new at this and I made...
