I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on repairs. this will help people with fixing their own Mavic :) so the more people post on what repairs were done the better the database will be :)

The guidelines for this thread are :

PLEASE DO NOT post questions asking what is wrong with yours! please use the mavic pro help forum for that.

Please try to keep the same "format" when you post! for example : ( you may copy and paste this format)


Problem :


Troubleshooting techniques:


Parts that are need for the repair:


so for example the post would look like this:


Problem : front right motor not spinning ( as you are looking from it from the top view) of course remove all props


Troubleshooting techniques: I used a volt meter to measure voltage across motor. the reading was 8 volts which is to low. I also switch it with the front left motor ( for testing purpose) and it fire right up! The ESC circuit board is ok... motor was bad!


Parts that are need for the repair: replace whole front right arm assy which comes with the motor.



as for where to get parts at @Thunderdrones is approved vender I don't think he has a web site so you may want to shoot him a private msg

Problem : After a almost full speed sports mode crash into a chain link fence, no camera image, and camera does not move with controls. Camera does move freely by hand (i.e. no obvious mechanical damage). Little black plastic tab near the back of the gimbal plate is broken. Controller shows a gimbal overload error.

Troubleshooting techniques:
With the help of Drone Services Hawaii, only poking around the exterior (no unscrewing) he helped show me that at least the power ribbon was damaged. One of the connections broke off. The video ribbon also appeared to be partially pulled out because it looked extra long when comparing to a stock gimbal. This could either be the connection coming off internally and/or the video ribbon broken. He was able to find that at least one of the many video wires were broken. He mentioned that if it was just a power ribbon that seemed obvious, then ribbon replacement would be recommended to start, but since video cable seemed broken along with power ribbon, video cable is a much harder fix, so he suggested a full gimbal replacement.

Parts that are need for the repair: Replaced the entire gimbal. I did my own replacement, and was able to verify that the video cable was indeed both partially pulled out of the connection AND some of the wires were ripped in half.
