    Flying around Acadia National Park

    Has anyone found a location around Acadia that's safe to take off/land at? I have had some luck with asking around for other locations so I figured I would ask here.

    Boat or Ship Launch or Take Off Warning

    Crash during auto take-off

    I have a new Mavic Pro drone. After calibrating the compass and IMU I flew it successfully for the first time yesterday.

    Take off question

    Hello. I want to ask some questions about mavic pro that I don't understand. If I take off for example from a building roof 20 meters from ground and I have set the RTH altitude to 20 meters what will it happen when RTH engage? Also will it land safely in the roof? Also what if I change home...

    Can't take off in PrecisionFlight

    Decided to give PrecisionFlight a try and learn about mapping. Mavic is supported. Initially I couldn't get the PF app to connect to the remote, but problem fixed by clearing app defaults. Now I have a new issue. I loaded a short flight plan and clicked Fly, plan uploaded to the drone, then...
