    High Wind Velocity Land ASAP

    Hi All, Every now and again i get a "RED" warning message saying "High Wind Velocity Land ASAP" just wondering if i should just ignore this? The Mavic doesn't really seem to be uneasy tho, i see it move a little bit but nothing crazy. does this mean that its passing its 10 m/s limit? Some advice...

    Chasing a windsurfer... SPORTS mode required!!!

    So last weekend, I went windsurfing with a friend of mine on the local lake. After a while I got tired and returned to shore, and decided to get the Mavic Pro out to film my friend. Winds were a bit gusty. Not enough to make flying worrysome, but it made it a **** of a lot harder to follow my...

    Thanks for all of the advice and experience! Prevent a wind-induced fly-away!

    I just wanted to drop in and say thanks to everyone for all of the advice and experience they freely hand out in these forums. I got my MP about a month ago and fly a couple of times a week - all local to my neighborhood. I don't take great photos and I don't put together good video - yet -...

    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...

    25 MPH winds in Cancun

    Above is video I took in Cancun, Mexico last week with winds at 25 mph. I was impressed with how well the Mavic Pro handled in the high winds. I love my Mavic!

    The wind and your Drone. Don't make this mistake!

    I am a scuba instructor. We always teach students that when you dive you first head INTO the current for 1/3rd of your air, then you turn around and drift back with the current to your back for 1/3rd of your air (you actually use less) and then you ascend. If you go with the current at the...

    New pilot questions: wind stability and gpsHealth

    Hey everyone, I‘m the proud owner of a new DJI Mavic Pro. I‘ve taken it on a few test flights and I'm still learning the in an outs of this jewel. I've read the manual forward and backwards, watched tutorial videos and lurked on several forums (this one seems to be the my favorite so far!). I...

    Flying over water or in high wind?

    Check out how my mavic preformed in some high winds flight and way out over water . The shot with the volcano caldera was about 2 .5 to 3 miles out . It always surprises me how close things look because they are large but in reality they are far!

    Flight path simulator.

    Does software exist which can be used to simulate the flight path of a drone under certain conditions, ie wind interference, remaining battery charge, nav point, etc?

    Camera angle changed in flight

    Yesterday was windy and I kept getting "High Winds" warnings. But the MP was handling it fine and I was getting cool shots. Right when the low battery alarm started beeping, the camera angle turned to the side. It was hard getting it to fly back to me, but I did. I changed the bat and it worked...

    Measure (live, in-flight) wind speed

    Is there a way to show in-flight wind and gust speed? I know that healthydrone have this information, see below. I wonder if the information is only available as a flight log record, or is it available to (Android) application as a real-time data.

    Almost lost Mavic in the wind!

    Last night I my wife looked out the window and commented on how beautiful the sky looked with the sunset, so I quickly took the mavic out to get some cool shots. The wind at ground level was strong, but nothing I haven't flown in before. I took it up to about 100-120 feet straight above my head...

    Force landing in 7.7m/s wind?

    Started a mission to take some landscape picts and video with reasonable 3-4 m/s wind, that increased (5-6 m/s) after a short while. Nothing to worry about anyway. Roughly 11:30 minutes from takeoff got the message "Large Wind Velocity. Fly with caution". Some seconds later, while the MP was...
