    Hello there!!!…well,There is a small unnoticeable slot at the bottom surface of the charging hub covered with a rubber flap . Could you please tell us it’s use or function? Thank you in advance

    Thank you, thought I could keep my pride and figure it out. Nope!

    Hello mavic 2 batteries are lipo or LIHV.

  4. Alfred Dahlberg on December 30, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Why should the battery not be kept installed when the drone is not being flown??

    I’m new to myΒ Mavic 2 Pro and charging the controller was doing my head in!, had I lost one of those strange little cables?………I watched your video and job done never to be forgotten, thanks very much πŸ™‚

    I’ve just spent an hour of my life plugging the USB to USB-C lead into the bottom of the remote and then into an array of charging points – wondering why nothing is happening. Super useful video so thank you.

    Thanks… I needed this. DJI needs to step up their game and provide this kind of support for their products.

    DJI is leaving its competitors in the dust in my opinion. Check out some of my DJI Drone videos, I will greatly appreciate that.

  10. KIESE MEDIA on December 30, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    nice video.I loved watching it.
    Go on with it .subbed your channel.
    I would definitely be glad about it when you give some love back πŸ˜ƒ ❀&✌

    Had to watch this to charge my first DJI, thanks

  12. Stephen Mihalchik on December 30, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Dude. THANK YOU! Just got my Mavic 2 today and I was so confused. Great explanation and direction.

  13. kelvin van Dalen on December 30, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    I feel so stupid

  14. David Williams on December 30, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Beautiful presentation and great help for beginning using my Mavic 2 Pro

  15. Robert Te on December 30, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Terrific – a nice short, succinct and clear video which helped me charge the controller. Really appreciated as all my Mavic written directions came in Chinese! LOL

  16. Rik Hendriks on December 30, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    I did not expect that something so basic as connecting a charger could be so difficult. After watching this video, it all makes sense.

  17. Billy Batts on December 30, 2020 at 10:46 pm

    I didnt take the plastic off at first so didnt even notice the cable on the side. I was like, where the fuck is the cable for it.
    What is the USB port on the bottom of the controller for though?

  18. sootylum on December 30, 2020 at 10:48 pm

    Thank you. You saved my sanity πŸ™‚

  19. Mat Light on December 30, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    awesome πŸ™‚

  20. ThiccyMcWiccy on December 30, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Very nice

  21. Fly Gor on December 30, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    All this time I have been waiting for instruction how to plug in two plugs that go in only one way. Looking forward more captain obvious instructions. Maybe a video how to open the box?

  22. Northern Plains Chasers on December 30, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    Thank you for this. Their instructions don’t very well explain that. I was certain they had sent the wrong cable

  23. Potcheen on the road ☘ on December 30, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    Subscribed πŸ‘

  24. Jesus M. Jimenez Sr. on December 30, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    Thanks 1,000 time. There is no much info of how to do it, and if it is there is hard to see. Thanks again :-).

  25. Scott Christensen on December 30, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    More thorough than the dji charging tutorial. Thank you very much

  26. Rudolf Abelin on December 30, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Thanks!!! Like you said, the remote can get a beginner confused. At least I did.

  27. Stephan Paris on December 30, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    This vid was very helpful! Thank you!

  28. Harry B Thompson IV on December 30, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Very effective at conveying what the manufacturer cannot

  29. Jose Orihuela on December 30, 2020 at 11:05 pm

    Thank You!!!

  30. Martin Williams on December 30, 2020 at 11:06 pm

    Brilliant training clip – very nice delivery and easily understood – absorbed all information nicely and worked a treat – thanks heaps

  31. jayaline on December 30, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    Superb. Without a doubt. Thanks.

  32. Marko Preglej on December 30, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    hvala

  33. Declan Murphy on December 30, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    I’m surprised how tricky and fiddly the whole controller and battery thing is, considering how well designed the actual drone is.

  34. Will on December 30, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Thanks, that socket did stump me! Just got mine today, and I haven’t flown it yet. πŸ˜‚

  35. Catherine Chapman on December 30, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you so much for this, cables got me confused but your tip got my sorted.

  36. Jason Charalambous on December 30, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    You should not charge the battery and controller at the same time because of the heat transfer and you would not want to put stress on the charger.

  37. Floofy Panda on December 30, 2020 at 11:13 pm

    thanks to the power of 99 controller was at 12 percent πŸ™‚

  38. Chris Manville on December 30, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    Very helpful. I wouldn’t have ever guessed that πŸ™‚

  39. Tom Kaliamos on December 30, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    Thanks Matt, the docs with the drone are pretty limited and your tutorial was short, sweet, and to the point. Looking forward to making a test flight tomorrow as this is my new backup airframe to my Inspire 2.

  40. Todd Autry on December 30, 2020 at 11:17 pm

    I really appreciate this video. The manuals are too small to read and this was very helpful. I am hoping to do a test flight with my Mavic 2 pro this weekend and hopefully it will all go well. Subbed! I hope your other videos are this helpful. I do wish more of the YouTube world would understand this is what we are looking for in a video. Short, precise, and the information we need without a lot of extra fluff. The fluff tends to get many lost and is not helpful. Thank you again for this video.

  41. inspired and enchanted photography on December 30, 2020 at 11:18 pm

    Extremely helpful! I thought I was going to break the micro USB πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  42. uxia olsson on December 30, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    Thank you Matt. With respect you have omitted one potentially important factor in this video and as a result my lawyers will be in touch shortly !!! (just kidding) I full of enthusiasm having purchased my first ever Drone the Mavic 2 Pro went ahead and charged, without watching your video or reading FULLY the tiny text instruction guide supplied with the Drone by DJI. As a result, it was not until I saw the online version of the user manual in BIG TEXT that I saw the WARNING icon/message* REMOVE THE REMOTE CNTROL CABLE BEFORE CHARGING … panic set-in hoping I had not in anyway damaged the charger itself, during the charging of the intelligent battery?? Then I thought, ah I will search you tube to see if there was any video on how to charge and sure enough I found you! But to my shock and horror you also didn’t mention it…

  43. Sam Clark on December 30, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    Thanks, that sure cleared things up

  44. Aracelli Abramov on December 30, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    Thanks… for what is the long USB cable?

  45. Gary Pearl on December 30, 2020 at 11:25 pm

    Thank you Direct and informative
    !!

  46. Loteta Cartel on December 30, 2020 at 11:25 pm

    Thank you it was very helpfull especially the square part got me thinking πŸ™ƒπŸ€”πŸ˜‚

  47. Ferran Rebollar on December 30, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    Excellent explanaiton. Many thanks for sharing.

  48. A Pat on December 30, 2020 at 11:27 pm

    Thank you, i was having the same issue i was afraid to break the micro connector thing since it wasnt square.

  49. Potcheen on the road ☘ on December 30, 2020 at 11:28 pm
