Found many posts on Emergency Shutdown and Restart, but never found one describing how to restart. I saw the video of the guys who tested this from 400 feet, but how did they restart the motors ?

Crazy thoughts . . . not going to try this, but if you shutdown at 1600 feet (far out in the countryside) would the AGL display on the app ? Is so, any idea if there is enough latency in this reading that it would be un-useful in a free fall from that height ?

Right, I am usually flying above lakes so the AGL and Takeoff are same for practical purposes. But I get your point.

These guys did it. But it may not work every time. And they did it from low altitude . . If the Mavic was falling at terminal velocity, it might be a different story.
