hi, i just recieved Mavic air since last week and i really love it,but i thing i notice that the antenna of its rc wont snap when folding unlike dji spark antenna. i just wanna make sure if it is normal or defective. does your rc antenna perfectly fit and snap?

i just posted video comparison between spark rc(which it snap and firmly lock. you will hear click soind) and mavic air(which wont snap and firmly click together)

Are you talking about snapping when folded down for storage? Mine snap into place to hold them shut.

My antennas snap together if they are aligned just right. They barely snap into place though. I can easily slide them apart after they have been snapped into place.

Right -- I understand. They don't click together and firmly hold in place like my Mavic Pro and Spark remote controllers.

My remotes controllers snap together exactly like those shown in your video.

I don't have experience with the other remotes to say exactly how "firmly", but mine aren't moving unless I want them too.

Right. I'm experiencing the same thing. It's very easy to separate the antennas after they've been locked together.

What can I say....they click together and stay in place, I haven’t measured how much torque is required to separate them
