    I'd been flying from my house to view the lake from the south, but have made it over to the west side a couple times this week for sunrise. M2P

    Flying in single digit °F temps

    So what's everyone's input or experience in flying in Arctic weather? I bought a Mavic Air in the spring/summer of 2018 and haven't had the chance to take it ice fishing. I bought some snow/water landing gear for it. Ofcourse the gear would be for emergency landings only.

    Why did my Mavic Air decide to land on water?

    Problem? I cannot understand what went wrong. Pilot error, rookie mistake, interference ? Was unit in a crash? Yes, I think this qualifies as a "soft" crash since it landed on water and sank. After 10 hours, a diver was able to recover the unit but I don't think I will try to make it fly...

    Height stability over water

    M2P arrived Friday and had the chance to take it fopr a few test flights over the weekend. Today was hovering over a river about 5m above the surface and i noticed that the drone fluctuated its height often dropping down by around half a meter, was a little unerving given i was pretty low...

    ND filters and Polarized ND filters

    Hello everyone, I have bought myself a Mavic Air, and now in October I’m going to Guyana, where I’m going to film the jungle and especially the Kaieteur Falls. Now I’ve looked at a myriad of videos about the differences between no filters vs nd filters and polarised filters, but I still think...

    Completely submerged! Drone survived.

    Was messing about with the drone today and as the battery got lower decided to do some low shots of a fountain. Battery was extremely low; I remember seeing just over a minute flight time left but was flying maybe 1.5m high and about 10m away from me so no drama. I dont know what happened...

    Mavic Air Floating Skids - 3D Print

    Hi, I found various 3D Models for a Floating Skid / Floating Attachment to emergency land the Mavic Pro on water. Unfortunately I did not find any attachment for the Mavic Air. Here is for example one for the Mavic Pro: Mavic water recovery upgrade by GV007 I would need something like this...

    Water Recovery System Test

    This is a vid of a system I came up with using WaterBuoy and a bracket for the Mav Pro. I made a mockup for the test, didn't quite go as planned but still went good enough for me to use it over water. Wish I had it on my first loss!!! Bolton

    Cleared for NFZ over lake, then "Will auto land in 19 secs!"

    I received clearance to operate in a No Fly Zone that included a lake where I was going to video some rowers. No problem starting and taking-off, and following a scull for a minute or two out in the lake. Then the controller beeped and displayed a message that I was in a NFZ, and the Mavic...

    Mavic Pro Battery drain and crashed into the ocean - lost

    Hello forum! I was flying my mavic pro over the water (ocean) yesterday and it was around 1km from "home" with more then 30% battery. I've pressed the "return home" option and suddenly the percentage started dropping 1-2% every 10 seconds. The drone became unresponsive, I couldn't control it...
