I have a DJI Mavic Pro and it makes a lot of excessive noise when I go backwards. I’m not sure if it’s the propellers or the motors. It makes a huge noise and it’s not going full speed. But that is only when I’m going backwards. If I go left or right or forwards, it’s fine. I’m confused. Thanks.

Is the volume the same regardless of direction i.e. backing toward/away or sideways to your relative position?

That's a strange one. I will listen more intently to mine this evening but I have not noticed a different noise volume while backing. Are your props undamaged?

I flew mine tonight and noticed no big difference in noise when going forwards and backwards.

I noticed that too, and found that there were scratch marks on the drone where a prop had been glancing off it. There was a slight warp to that one prop. Replacing it solved the issue.
