Hello everybody,
this forum is absolutely fascinating: truckloads of cases/mishaps to learn from and many helpful very expierienced members!
I hope that I will learn fast enough in order to avoid the necessity to ask for help with my Mavic Air ...
Happy landings and regards from the Hessische Bergstrasse (Germany, a little south of Frankfurt)

@dirkclod: The site has already been helpful for me, e.g. before reading several threads I had no idea about all the log-files. And trust me, I will search intensively before asking stupid questions!
@ald man Mavic: Easy to believe that! We had quite a struggle with the storm in our area: hundreds of trees didn't make it ...

Thank you for the hint with the manual! I bet, it is „deeper“ than the version in German.
The animal in the pic of your profile is pretty impressive! Do they live in your neighborhood?

Welcome from Chicago the Windy City. Already like your enthusiasm to learn. And, your wording. that you find this site fascinating, and learning from others and their mishaps. One good way to keep your Bird flying, and not in repair. Just curious what made you check out this particular forum? I like welcoming new pilots from other country's. As, you know this is a international forum. And we can learn from one another. Please check out Mavic Help and Mavic Tips as well. I like listening to my MP's propellers sing to me while its flying.
Fly safe and have fun.

Good morning SpitFire,
I think, the desire to learn is crucial when you start “playing“ with something that has the potential to cause serious damage or injuries.
I bought the MA because I wanted to take nice pics and videos during a Safari in South Africa, trained a couple hours and immediately realized that it takes a lot more than just knowing the function of the two little sticks on the RC ...

Consequently, I spent more time reading and learning about the complexity of this „toy“ than flying it. Without any mishaps so far 😅

What I like about this forum is friendly and professional way of discussing the topics and helping. Apparently, the Mods and experienced Members are doing a great job, THANK YOU!
