Hello Guys,

Anyone knows the best way to point the antenas to the drone using Deflectors?

There is the attitude indicator,that seems to indicate it, but i could not properly identify how to use it.

Any ideas?

The flat side of the antennas should be parallel to each other and facing the Mavic.

Yes, for sure.

But I am talking about the way to correctly point the antenas to the drone using deflectors, deflectors makes the signal directional instead of omnidirectional, increasing the signal at longer ranges.

So it is very important to point the controller to the drone to get the better signal as possible.
 
Aim the tip of the red craft at the white triangle.
Thanks Jack, I think you got it!

I will test it at my next flight. Maybe it will depend on the direction of the drone. The tip of red craft when it is going out and the back when it is returning.

Yes, that's right: the tip should be pointing directly at the center homepoint when you're returning.

In my experience, this is hugely useful, since I often don't realize my MA is quite where I think it is. On the other hand, it can occasionally be off by ten degrees or so, usually, I suspect, because the compass in your phone or tablet needs to be recalibrated.
