    New to the forum - From Austin TX

    Greetings from Austin TX! I am new to this forum, but not new to drones. I have been flying for over 5 years and licensed FAA Part 107 Pilot. I am always LEARNING from others (both the good and the bad). I have had my share of crashes including an Inspire 2 (very costly). I have currently own and operate 5 drones, the Inspire 2 (yes replaced the crashed one), Phantom 4 Pro, Phantom 4, Mavic Pro, and the Mavic Air. I enjoy doing real estate work, roof inspections, and any outside events. For those that might not realize it, I have had great success using even the Mavic Air in roof inspections where overhanging tree branches prevent larger drones getting the needed images. I hope to learn a lot from each of you and if I can be a help to you, just let me know.

    Mavic Air Vs. Mavic Pro Image Quality

    Hey guys. We did a detailed comparison of the cameras of the DJI Mavic Air, Mavic Pro, and Spark. Let us know what you think. You can see the post here: https://www.halfchrome.com/mavic-air-camera/. From the site you can download the original images we took so you can compare for yourself. If you would rather watch on YouTube:
  3. As my UAV collection expands I’ve decided to part ways with my Mavic Pro. It's in great condition and has been flown less than 50 flights (and never any hard landings or crashes). I initially purchased it as my travel flyer and it has worked great for that. You’ll see a variety of case options below (I ended up alternating between the soft sided case and the smaller hard sided cases if I was carry-on space challenged for a trip). Mavic Pro & controller 5 total intelligent flight batteries - the batteries have writing on them to number them (1-5) 6 extra quick release props (never had to change a prop) Car charger Power bank adapter Battery charging hub DJI Shoulder bag (soft sided) Hard sided combo case - holds the Mavic Pro, controller, 3 batteries and the charger Hard sided case for Mavic Pro only Hard sided case for controller only Cables Controller stick brace to protect flight sticks when packed Original box (just in case) Orange carbon fiber skin I never applied to the drone I'm asking $975 plus shipping for the bundle (I'm in the Chicago, Illinois area). I'm happy to provide additional pictures or talk details -- please reach out if you're interested in the Mavic: alex@bratton.com, 630.343.0680. -Alex

    Hydro Magic

    "If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water." - Loren Eiseley I cross the 'wrong-way bridge' in Cambridge most days of the week. With a morning mist settled over the Lamoille River, I stopped to grab a few shots from the air. What I didn't realize at the time - perhaps not even until I edited this entry - is that the water would be my subject.
  5. Hey all - awhile back, maybe a year or more ago I heard that if you update the Mavic Pro firmware it was locking people out of being able to fly even if you had permission to fly in those areas. I wasn't sure if everyone experienced that or not? I haven't updated my firmware in forever because I was afraid of that. I do a lot commercial work for architects and the local airport is super cool about giving permission over the phone, especially when I'm only doing 50-100ft AGL flights within 50-100 yards of the home point. (I'm part 107 certified as well) I recently got the Mavic Air and it's newer firmware has prevent me from taking off in spots saying "cannot take off" on the screen, even if I have permission, so I always have my Mavic Pro ready to go as well. Now I'm headed to China for a company specifically to shoot Tea Plantations for their business. (DSLR photo/video & drone shots.) I'd love to take the Mavic Air because of it's size for travel, but I'm afraid I'm going to get over there and get that "cannot take off" message. Let me be clear, I'm not saying I want to make illegal flights. I just want to be able to fly in the areas I should be able to fly, class G, and in the middle of nowhere in a tea field, or in places that I've been given permission to fly. The controller obviously doesn't know that I've been given permission though. Anyone had this issue, know a way around it, or an article pointing to this firmware issue? Better yet, anyone in China been flying around tea fields in Shoaxing, Nanning, or Pu'er City? I see a few geo zones on the DJI website map, but I think the tea fields will be out in the country away from them. Thanks so much for the help - Mike.

    Hello From Orlando Florida

    New to the drone community. Located in Longwood, Florida in Metro Orlando Area. Would like to network and communicate with others in area or wherever!
  7. Hi Everyone, I've been flying my drone for around a year, one bad crash that meant my drone had to be replaced. But love flying my drone and look forward to being part of this community.

    Greetings from Rochester, NY

    Hello everyone, Excited to join this community of Drone Pilots and prospective pilots like myself. I am passionate about responsible and legal drone use for commercial use and also for personal enjoyment. I am currently studying for Part 107 exam with the ultimate goal of using my commercial license to establish a successful and respectable business. I'll be monitoring this forum for tips, advice, ideas, etc., and sometimes asking questions -- maybe too many at times. I hope to become a valuable contributor. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Ray Kaforey

    Drone Insurance

    Hi all! I need an Insurance for commercial purposes, the drone is a Mavic Pro, and it will be used in Tanzania. Unfortunately, France doesn't sell drones to fly outside Europe or the USA... Does anyone have any suggestion?
  11. I am lucky to live in a beautiful area in Prescott, AZ. It took me 10 months to finally get the 107 approval to fly over this area, here's the video. Shot with a combo of DJI Mavic hand-flown and pre-programmed with Litchi for the running shots, DJI Osmo with z-axis for the stabilized running shots, and GoPro for the fixed shots.

    My New Christmas Present!

    Hello everyone, I just got the best Christmas present ever, a brand new Mavic Pro by DJI. I am really excited to fly this drone and learn about all the features and controls. I picked my drone out a few weeks ago after testing the Mavic Pro, I was hooked. I love how compact this drone is, high quality and able to handle some weather challenges. I also got 3 batteries that came with my drone, that's exciting and a battery docking station and car charger. I'm looking forward to hearing all about the Mavic Pro and learning from the pro's already using the Mavic.

    Mavic Pro, Commercial Use Ready?

    I just passed my Part 107 Remote Pilot exam. I am now rethinking my choice of a drone for commercial purposes. I'm from the software industry. I've told people for years that you don't go out and buy a computer, unless you are a standard consumer needing the Microsoft suite of software. In industry, you first determine what kind of software you will be running and then back into your computer/hardware decisions. Now, I am running up against my own advice when it comes to choosing a drone. I have been studying the markets available to me in my area and the potential competition. I would like to be able to drive a stake in the ground and say I'm going after the real-estate, surveying, agriculture, etc. or a combination of markets. If I had a high degree of certainty of my market(s), I could back into my drone choice and processing software more easily. Also, I also need a drone that allows me to be nimble and able to respond to new or changing market conditions. I do not have that high degree of certainty of my markets. As a result, I have a problem backing into a drone decision. So I am approaching my problem from another direction. Is there a drone on the market that is versatile enough and has the ruggedness or stamina to service many markets or market niches? If there is such a drone, then my lack of clear market targets are less of a problem. I am re-looking at the Mavic Pro. It certainly seems versatile enough. However, does it have the stamina to be able to sustain a rugged duty cycle? No, I can't easily define what is a 'rugged duty cycle' either. That is tough to quantify since it will vary by market, size/scope of job, and the number of jobs you might have on any given day or week. I also recognize that I will probably need more than one drone to remove some of the load on any one drone. But let's throw something against the wall. Say the Mavic Pro had to be in the air 2-3 hours a day with time off between flights to cool off the motors. Assuming, only 20 minutes/battery that would be 6-9 batteries/day. Can this drone handle that level of usage and still provide reliable service? I have never burned out a brush-less motor on my drones except when I used them as a Weed Wackers. I have no experience with the Mavic Pro or for that matter any other DJI drone. I just know that if my drone is not in the air, it is not producing revenue. The ratio of time in the air to the time on the bench or being serviced elsewhere has to be very high. So to me the value of this Community, is to help me answer these kinds of questions that I can't answer with my own experience. Based on your experience, do you have an opinion as to whether or not the Mavic Pro can handle the time in the air requirements stated above for the markets that you serve? What markets do you serve? How many hours a day or week is your Mavic Pro in the air? Is there anyone out there who has flown 200 flights or logged 50 hours in the air on one Mavic Pro without a major failure? This question is not just addressed to commercial drone pilots. There are heavy recreational flyers out there. Some of my other concerns: DJI seems to have a history of poor customer service based on my lurking in DJI forums. I understand that for an annual fee I can purchase DJI Care Refresh and that I would get priority responses from DJI Support. There is no definition of 'priority support'. In their terms and conditions, it doesn't state how long it will take to get my drone replaced under their insurance plan. Plus there are caveats that would allow them to decline coverage. Support concerns me. Please share your experience with standard support and/or the DJI Care Refresh, drone replacement program? I have read of three potential issues with the Mavic Pro. They may or may not be describing the same issue. CEO of DroneDeploy said, "We’ve noted an issue with exposure, but I’m sure this will be fixed in short order." One Mavic Pro critic wrote on a forum: "The Mavic Pro has a problem with focusing where some parts of the video are blurred where other parts on the video are in sharp focus, this is a terrible flaw unsure if software issue or fault with the (???) lems ,,,this can be seen on you tube, I am unsure if this has been fixed by DJI. As to date there is no updates with this problem, I will not buy one,, inspire is a better flagship." January 2017 Digital Trends: "The only real flaw we could find on the machine was its 3-axis gimbal assembly. It’s impressively small and compact, but it’s also held in place with four small rubber bands that seem to be a bit fragile. If one of these bands snaps (which happened to our review unit while it was in the previous user’s possession), the camera will have trouble stabilizing itself, which ultimately means you’ll end up with shaky, “Jello-effect” video footage. That’s really the only design flaw we could find though — everything else on the Mavic is well-built and designed to last." March 2017. My comment: This may just mean that the rubber bands need preventative maintenance and replaced more frequently. Potentially not a big deal. Have you experienced any of these issues? If so, has DJI fixed the problem(s) or promised a date when they will be fixed? With great complexity comes, potentially, great vulnerability. The Mavic Pro has incredible functionality but is it rugged and reliable enough for sustained commercial use? . What is your experience with the ruggedness and reliability of the Mavic Pro? How many hours of flight time are you basing your observations on? I appreciate any and all feedback. I am hoping that Alan's post trip report on the Mavic Pro may help shed some light on these questions. I'm sure he will be burning through batteries.

  20. Starting my drone business. Between Phantom 4 and Mavic pro - which one is a better pick? Online reviews don't really reveal major differences. Each is a bit better in another aspect in terms of photo quality and seems like the P4 is more stable at high winds. Any thoughts? Thanks! Ron
