MavicDownMap.jpg Hi guys - and many thanks for adding this totally new guy to the world of drones. Apologies if this is not posted in the correct Forum.

I am desperately seeking help/advice in finding my lost Mavic Pro Platinum. My 8 year old boy was using the RC when we lost sight of the Mavic, and now believe it has gone down in fields, or nearby wooded areas - we are in the south of England.

I would appreciate some expert input as to which files, etc. will give me the most accurate information - or does the DJI GO 4 App's "Find My Drone" feature give an accurate location?

Am hoping somebody out there has the time to advise me please.

Thanks in advance.


Brian.

Check out your TXT flight log to see if it explains what happened. You can upload and view it online here. If you'd like other people to review and comment on your flight log, then please post a link back here after you upload it.

That will only direct you to the last recorded location from the TXT flight log.

One of my worries is that the last time we took the Mavic up, the battery was on less than 30%. The file I have shared is the most recent flight recorded. Is it possible that the final flight was not recorded? ...in which case, might there be any data elsewhere that would confirm that, or not? :(

Click my link above to review that flight log. Was that your last flight?

The battery is at 38% at the end of the above flight log. There's no way your Mavic would have been able to return home with ~30% of the battery remaining.

Hi msinger - the final time we took the Mavic up, the battery was just under 30%. The file above is the most recent flight that has been recorded.

Is it possible that the final flight was not recorded? ...in which case, might there be any other data elsewhere that would confirm that, or not?

It's possible, but not likely. Restart your Android device and then check to see if a newer log is available.

Are you saying it was <30% when you took off? Could it have immediately tried to RTH to a previously saved location?

I don't wish to sound facetious but when / if you find or replace it, read the manual and engage beginner mode!
I do speak from experience....
