Official Mavic Pro Range Leaderboard!
___________________________________________________________________________
Please see current updates below.

THE FOLLOWING RANGE COMPETITION INFORMATION AND FORMAT IS BASED ON FEEDBACK FROM MANY FOLKS WITH A VESTED INTEREST IN THIS. I ENCOURAGE DEBATE AND OPINIONS BUT BE SURE TO CONFORM TO THE FORUM GUIDELINES. TROLLS WILL BE REPORTED. Community Rules

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT (RULES EDIT VERSION 1)

This thread is to track and report the top 20 individuals that are able to fly their Mavic Pro the farthest distance from their take off home point and return home IN ONE FLIGHT in each of the classes**. This does NOT mean total distance traveled, it means how far away you made it (as the crow flies) from your take off home point.

On this leaderboard, an Airdata URL link (Drone Data Management and Flight Analysis | Airdata UAV) is required but limited based on past entries and will be used to determine the max distance from your take off home point (not what the Go4 app says, which will always slightly differ from airdata). It will also be used to verify that your Mavic Pro landed within 100 feet of the take off home point** (this 100 foot buffer is to allow for GPS reporting errors that happen occasionally during solar storms or high KP index; or if someone parked their truck where you took off (this actually happened to someone and a 100 foot buffer is a fair and reasonable number to accommodate). During your flight, your remote controller and antennas cannot move more than 100 feet away from your take off home point during the entire flight***. Airdata will be used to determine if this buffer was maintained.

73561

You may only hold a single position in each class. Your best distance will be recorded and any previous records are discarded in each class. In the event of a distance tie, the lowest flight time will be the tie breaker. This is an example thread post that you would submit, but change the class and Airdata link to match your flight:

"I am submitting this STOCK CLASS flight for consideration to be placed on the leader board.
https://<Your-Airdata-Flight-Link>
https://<Your-Youtube-Video-Link> (optional)"


THE THREAD OWNER HAS FILTERS SETUP TO ALERT HIM OF THIS SPECIFIC TEXT STRING, IF YOU USE A DIFFERENT SENTENCE FORMAT IT MAY DELAY YOUR LEADER BOARD POSTING.
The thread owner will typically update the leader board stats each evening. But please allow for and expect up to 5 calendar days for updates to be completed.

Although not required for consideration (but will add more validity to your flight if questioned), it is highly recommended that you record the Go4/Pilot/Litchi app video in your Android or iOS device of every flight and have this video available on youtube/vimeo in case there is a dispute of your flight. When sharing a video link, provide the full unedited Go4/Pilot/Litchi app flight video from takeoff to touchdown on youtube/vimeo. Please do not edit the video except time lapse to speed it up and shorten the video length (5 minute total video length is recommended).

Although not required for consideration (but will add more validity to your flight if questioned), that you attach to your submission a close up picture of your bird just before take off (on a scale showing AUW in grams) for those that follow this thread to see what mods you have used and compare to their own. This will encourage community engagement and would be appreciated by all.

If there is suspicion of cheating, or for any dispute resolution not covered here, the top 5 record holders of each class will vote and have final say on the matter in question. The thread owner will coordinate the vote and responses within 5 calendar days will determine the outcome. If there is a tie, the owner of this thread will determine tiebreaker within 3 calendar days. If the thread owner does not respond within 3 calendar days (due to vacation/holiday/etc.), the moderators of the site HAVE APPROVAL AT THEIR DISCRETION to make the vote call if an inordinate amount of time has passed and the thread owner is MIA for whatever reason. Alternatively, the moderators may choose to do nothing and let the matter sit until the thread owner returns.

NOTE: IT IS OUTSIDE THE INTENTION AND SPIRIT OF THIS RANGE COMPETITION TO CONSIDER OR ALLOW ANY TYPE OF PIT STOP OR MID FLIGHT BATTERY SWAP OR MID FLIGHT BATTERY CHARGE. YOUR BIRD CAN NOT MAKE PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH ANYTHING DURING THE ENTIRE FLIGHT OR IT WILL BE DECLARED INELIGIBLE.

To share your Airdata flight, login and open the flight in question. Then click the share button (depicted below). Also make sure to enable the following share settings at a minimum in order to be considered.

Below are the Mavic 2 and Mavic Air legacy leaderboards for reference:
Official Mavic 2 Range Leaderboard
Official Mavic Air Range Leaderboard!


Official Mavic Pro Range Members,

After 3 years of enjoying your entries and fulfilling a Range/Distance milestone with your Mavic Pro, not to mention a name for yourself!,, I thought it was best to upgrade and update this Leaderboard thread! Thanks to the MP staff for making this happen! Members who want to update their stats for this thread should do so now.

At this time, all current members on the Leaderboard will remain intact as highlighted below during the update process.,
This is to insure no member will be dropped from the board during the update. It will take some time to verify once again all the entries currently.
Some entries from the updated list may have invalid links as this will be the updated status for that member when they originally made the entry.
I encourage those members who want to update their stats, to please send me the links via PM once you update your original entry post.(You do know that you can still do that!)
Many of us have come a long way the MP and the MP2! Members that have Airdata links with the MP since then, should update their post.
As the board updates, the Original Highlighted Leaderboard below, will decrease one by one until the update is complete.
Thanks Everyone!,, DM..



New Leaderboard! (Currently under update!)

STOCK CLASS (over 22,000 feet)
This class is 100% stock hardware and 100% factory software for the Mavic Pro aircraft and Mavic Pro remote controller. Any non powered passive material may be added to the bird or remote controller that does not improve flight performance (this exception is allowed for pilots that wish to use the same bird in the other classes and permanent wiring is installed). No other modification of the physical aircraft or remote controller permitted in this class. The factory battery can not be overcharged past the published voltage capacity. The factory battery must be charged by the factory battery charger. You may change any factory supported software settings in the Go4 app. No jettison techniques allowed in this class to reduce weight mid-flight.

MODIFIED CLASS (over 35,000 feet)
This class is 100% stock aircraft hardware, but additional systems may be added (including but not limited to, batteries, amplifiers, associated wiring, etc). This class specifically prohibits any removal of factory parts for weight reduction methods or any other reason. All factory hardware must stay intact and only additions are allowed (exception being small holes drilled to allow for routing of cables). The aircraft software may be modified in this class. The remote controller hardware and software may be modified in this class. If you decide to remove a fan, camera, extra screws, or labels from the aircraft, or if you want after market props or antenna replacements on the aircraft, you will need to report in the unlimited class. No jettison techniques allowed in this class to reduce weight mid-flight. Batteries can be overcharged in this class.

yeah man , there's more left with that setup... and i think some more weight can be added... have to check with MCG and see how much weight he was carrying on his last test.
I am much more interested in the antenna than the battery mod. I had your DBS panel antenna on my P3 and NEVER lost signal, I loved the extra signal penetration I got thru obstructions like trees and such. When you get this one perfected with a quick release I will be in line with my $$

I am surprised somone hasn't just sent someone to a point 4.3 miles away and flown to that point that way they dont need to worrg about it not making it back .... just a thought.

Hmmm, what would that prove? The whole idea is to get there and back, I am sure it will get out the 4 miles but if you don't have the battery to get back it is a moot point. That 4.3 was over water, you could get the same over flat land, but you still need to get home. I never fly that far out, about a mile max, I am more concerned about signal strength in small valleys and thru trees.

Is it really a prototype? It's a regular ITELITE antenna?


Sent from my iPhone using MavicPilots
I believe it's the DBS02 antenna. Probably calling it a prototype so there's no confusion and making people think they can buy a DBS02 antenna and it'll work. Obviously there will be a new mounting system, but the internal cables are different as well.
