So I got my Mavic 2 yesterday and spent all evening (and into the morning) applying the update. I'm excited to fly it for the first time this evening after work. I just wanted to mention a few observations to get some feedback from the forum.
- The first thing I checked after opening the box was the fit of my phone into the controller. I just upgraded from the Mavic Pro and one of the things that disappointed me about that controller was that my phone would not fit into the controller with it's case on. I eventually ended up taking a razor blade to the rubber nubs in the controller arms to allow enough room to fit my phone with it's case. I was expecting this to be remedied with the new Mavic 2 but I was disappointed to find nearly the same situation. I can not fit my phone into the new controller without first removing the case.
- I don't understand why DJI doesn't enable the side sensors during regular flight or at least during many of the Intelligent Flight Modes where the drone will be flying sideways. This makes no sense to me and the new Mavic 2 is just as prone to crashes while flying sideways as my old Mavic Pro. I do understand that they work when using Active Track or when in Tripod mode. But what about the other Intelligent Flight modes?
- One of the controller/phone cables that came with the Mavic 2 will not fit into the controller. For example, the iPhone cable that came installed on the controller fits just fine. However, the included USB-C cable will not plug into the micro USB plug on the controller. After comparing the plugs, there is a difference between the plugs and the USB-C cable simply can't be inserted into the controller without damaging the controller. Has anyone else seen this? And yes, I'm trying to plug the "micro-USB" plug into the controller. I understand that the USB-C plug goes into my phone.
