    Apart from broken gimbals which is no surprise given the size of that thing the Mavic seem to be in a good shape, after a hard crash like that I expected it to be in worse condition.

    And......cue the moaners saying " But why didn't collision avoidance stop this?"
    Or... "I thought these were supposed to go up and over an obstacle like that?"
    Or...."I didn't think you could crash these?" :rolleyes:

    The gimbal is held on with these LITTLE tiny gimbal mounts. It probably only needs four new ones

    I'm sure that the mounts and gimbal will be the thing that broke most frequently, now the question is how much is it to get them fix.

    The look like little tiny mounts.... totally the weak point!

    Should be on sport mode, without collision avoidance

    The guy in the video commented on the video say that it was in sport mode and he knows that collision avoidance is off.

    Crashes are one of the few situations where sound recording on the drone would be entertaining.

    Also DJI app should record 15 seconds video of the pilot from front facing camera on the phone.

    I glad to see that the guy isn't complaining. After-all that crash was 100% his fault

    At least no one can complain about the arms breaking now! I wish Sport mode would leave the OA on and just warn you that it probably won't work over 20 mph.

    May I ask if the same shot could have been achieved by shotting it at the slow speed and then speeding up in PP?

    Since there were no people walking or vehicles moving in the shot no reason why not.

    Probably wouldn't have conveyed the same emotion when it hit the wall.

    Because he wants it repaired!
    RMA = Return Merchandise Authorisation, irrespective of whether it is a warranty repair or chargeable.

    Yes , but when he sarcastically says he's going to review the DJI return policy it kind of feels like he wants a replacement for free

    Ahhh, I see what you mean - I can only hope they put him at the back of the queue and charge him double!
