  1. Has it ever done this before?
  2. What firmware are you using? Have you recently updated it?
  3. How old is your Mavic?
  4. How many flights?
  5. Do you have Refresh or any damage insurance?
I dont think the wind is the problem because it started happening while you were flying straight.

If you have 40 flights, and it has only done it once before, I dont think it is a big problem. I would keep flying it, and see if it happens frequently. I know that it is scary when it happens while flying, but if it only rarely happens, it is probably just a firmware problem.

What country are you in? That is a great law to protect the buyer for 5 years.

The 5 year warranty sounds great, but only if it’s a Manufacturing fault. DJI Refresh covers you for when it’s your fault.

Looks like your friends was won't
But anybody figure out why this is happening?
This just started happening rome. Out of nowhere. Had this thing for year and a half and it just happened twice couple days apart .Thought it was a bird attacking it or something and the drone losing control and crashing. Could it be the ribbon
