Mavic finally arrived this week and it went on its maiden journey this afternoon/evening. I love the size, but otherwise, not impressed. It was just above me and it did a Return To Home due to radio interference. It also flashed "Battery Warning" a couple times. Bad start.

I pulled out the Phantom 3 Pro and it chugged on like the pro it is. No problems.

Hopefully things get better!

Welcome, Fried Toast. I'm still waiting for mine in Aichi-ken.

The antennae seem to have a very deep dropout when directly in line with each other (such as flying overhead).

Hmm... I had them parallel and pointed slightly out as I always have with the P3P.

Battery error (2 different fully-charged batteries - same error w/ the battery and interference) worries me. Had complete disconnection w/ the Mavic. Screen on my Galaxy S7 Edge went dark and the Mavic landed on its own (took awhile, tho').

Hopefully you get yours soon! 早く届けばいいね!楽しみでしょう!

Welcome! I have a question for you, FT. Where abouts can you fly drones in Japan? I'm planning to fly down there for 3 weeks and I would like to fly my drone to get some aerial footage, but I heard drones are illegal... is this true? If not, where can I fly them? Thanks in advance!
