    *****
    THIS IS A PLACEHOLDER AND THREAD FOR DISCUSSION AND DEBATE ON A NEW AND IMPROVED RANGE LEADERBOARD RULES OF ENGAGEMENT FOR THE ANTICIPATED MAVIC2 AND/OR ENTERPRISE. THE FOLLOWING IS MY PERSONAL OPINION 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
    *****


    Official Mavic2/Enterprise Range Leaderboard (EDIT VERSION 3)


    RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
    This thread is to track and report the top 20 individuals that are able to fly their Mavic2 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 and will be used to determine the max distance from your take off home point. It will also be used to verify that your Mavic2 landed within 50 feet of the take off home point** (this 50 foot buffer is to allow for GPS reporting errors that happen occasionally during solar storms). During your flight, your remote controller and antennas cannot move more than 50 feet away from your take off home point during the entire flight.

    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 MODIFIED CLASS flight for consideration to be placed on the leader board.
    https://<Your-Airdata-Flight-Link>"

    The thread owner will typically update the leader board stats each evening. But please allow for and expect up to 3 calendar days for updates to be completed.

    It is recommended (but not required) 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.

    Although not required for consideration, it is recommended that you record the Go4 app video of every flight and have this video available on youtube in case there is a dispute of your flight. Every flight must provide an Airdata link regardless to be considered with one exception, there have been reports that Go4 on the android will not record flights over a certain distance. If this happens to you, provide the full unedited Go4 flight video from takeoff to touchdown on youtube. Please do not edit the video except time lapse to speed it up and shorten the video length. This exception rule is subject to change if new methods are found or the Go4 bug is fixed.


    STOCK CLASS
    This class is 100% stock hardware and 100% factory software for the Mavic2 aircraft and Mavic2 remote controller. No modification of the physical aircraft or remote controller permitted in this class. One exception is to allow decorative skins and/or stickers to the aircraft. The factory battery can not be overcharged past the published voltage capacity.

    MODIFIED CLASS
    This class is 100% stock aircraft hardware, but additional systems may be added (i.e. 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. 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, Wifi board, 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. Batteries can be overcharged in this class.

    UNLIMITED CLASS
    The only requirement in the unlimited class is that the main system board from the Mavic2 aircraft is used and the factory ESC board is used intact with 4 motors, together with a Mavic2 remote controller. Any and all hardware or software modifications are allowed in this class on the aircraft and remote controller. Batteries can be overcharged in this class.

    SUICIDE CLASS
    **Suicide class does not require a return flight back to the take off home point. This class has the same rules as unlimited. This class is for a one-way trip and no return home is required. Fly as far away from your take off home point until the batteries die and you land or crash.

    Will be interesting when we do get these in and sure this will go about like the others threads.
    If anyone does get out of line just report and not argue and all will be good . 0ROJYyg.png

    I would assume it don't but best to ask time of day don't matter correct? meaning day or night? also what about location? any restriction on that? perhaps categories? over open water, woods, city, etc?

    Beanbubba, do you have any ideas on how to address ties if the Mavic2 has a hard distance limit like the Mavic Pro has?

    One option is to use time. The person that hit the limit and return to the home point the fastest.

    If we run into another distance limit, I would recommend that we score it like golf. For example:

    1. 59,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    1. 59,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    1. 59,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    1. 59,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    1. 59,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    6. 50,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    7. 49,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    8. 48,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    9. 47,000 feet - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    etc, etc,etc.

    Some would argue that the slowest time would be more challenging than the fastest time.

    Doing it like golf is a good option. I’m just not a fan of having potential ties. If I had to vote on it, I would definitely go with the fastest one to the limit and back rather than the slowest/longest time, just because someone could fly to the limit and once they get with in a few hundred feet of the home point, slow down to a near hover and just wait until the battery gets to near 0% then fly and land within 50 feet of the home point.

    You make a strong argument, I do agree and we should add a flight time column and use that as the tie breaker:

    1. 59,000 feet - 40:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    2. 59,000 feet - 41:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    3. 59,000 feet - 42:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    4. 59,000 feet - 43:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    5. 59,000 feet - 44:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    6. 50,000 feet - 39:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    7. 49,000 feet - 36:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    8. 48,000 feet - 41:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    9. 47,000 feet - 45:00 - username - AirdataURL - Post#
    etc, etc,etc.

    Edit version #2 of the first post is complete and contains the recommendations so far. I made assumptions about the moderators role in this and would like their feedback. The reason I proposed this is because there have been a couple times we lost the thread owner for months and folks got quite upset. Let me know if you moderators want me to leave or remove that language.

    I must make note and mention this. When I created the Official Mavic Air Range Leaderboard! , I was not able to edit the board due to issues with editing permissions from this forum. @dirkclod can vouch for this. I even mention it in the thread itself. This was the case with many members that had created leaderboard threads. Right now, all members can edit and post freely thanks to members like us that brought it to the attention of the main admins of the DronePilots.zone - The World's Largest Drone Community
    When the new DJI product is announced, You maybe surprised on how you will have to maintain or rethink your approach on running a LeaderBoard.
    So far, You are only still organizing it. We will see.;)

    Dude, I am all ears! Thanks for sharing and thats the point of this thread is to get in front of it and try to avoid the flaws in the past solutions. If you have a better idea, please share. I don't claim to have the best answer.

    I don't follow. The way the forum threads are currently setup the originator of a thread can edit the initial post as many times as needed (to update the leaderboard in the first post). Everyone else can post comments to the thread but can't edit any posts but their own. Your statement of "was not able to edit the board due to issues with editing permissions from this forum" does not follow any behavior of any thread I have seen on this site.

    Please elaborate on what you mean by this.
