DJI Mavic Pro Drone Flight Testing

DJI Mavic Pro Drone Flight Testing

In this episode, the Roswell Flight Test Crew test flies the Mavic Pro drone from DJI, beginning with a demonstration of the compass calibration procedure. The Mavic’s folding controller includes an LCD screen that provides basic aircraft telemetry, which is also available from the DJI Go 4 app. The app is available for both the iOS and Android operating systems and runs on a smartphone or tablet connected to the controller to provide video from the Mavic’s on board camera. The Mavic has two flight modes available: regular mode and sport mode. Sport mode allows for higher speeds and more aggressive maneuvering, but disables the front-facing obstacle avoidance system. The collision avoidance system is able to detect not only hard physical barriers, like walls, but also less-distinct obstacles like gently rising terrain or bramble. Sample aerial video from the Mavic’s three-axis camera gimbal is provided, along with a flight endurance test, showing how long the aircraft is able to hover on a single charged battery.

    Great video, thanks.This is the kind of video that should be included with the drone itself so that everyone watches it.

    What would you suggest for someone needing a SMALL drone to take on solo travels around the world (I’d have to operate it and be on camera at times) … that I hope to make into a professional documentary?

    There is an ALERT about China’s DJI Drones from the U.S. Army to shut them down, NOW. They are compromised by China and can be remotely taken over by that country of origin.

    Here’s the report from DAHBOO77.

    So entertaining from start to end!

    I thought you’re suppose to face the camera down during the second step of compass calibration. However you got it to work with a confirmation blinking green light. I’ve never seen it done like that, I just assumed it was like all the other DJI craft. I guess it works either way.

    What is the story on the abnormal gimbal vibration error on your Mavic? I have one and I have never seen that error.
