    Low RPMs

    I'm trying to repair a Mavic that refuses to take off because the RPMs of the motors will not rise above 200. I received the unit with a chunk of prop in the top of the upper left motor arm.

    Fly off my balcony?

    I just got my Mavic air up and running. Reading the literature I see various warnings about flying over sudden changes in elevation, or mountainous areas. But for me that's what it's all about! I live in a hilly area, with interesting cliff formations, and I want to enjoy them! In particular, I...

    Take Off Tactics

    Skyscraper rooftop takeoff/landing

    I ordered my Mavic (my first DJI drone) a few days ago and was wondering if it was possible or safe to take off from a rooftop about 30 stories up. I live close to the beach and a park, and would fly it over those places, but I find it much more convenient to take an elevator up to the roof...
