Join Jim Heid for an in-depth discussion in this video Resources and worst-case scenarios, part of DJI Mavic Pro: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
- Well, we ended the previous video…by talking about crashes.…Let's continue down that dark road…with a look at some options that you have…when the worst happens, when you lose your drone.…It happens.…A tree decides to add your drone to its collection.…You don't pay attention to the critical battery warning,…and the drone lands itself safely, somewhere.…Or a bad compass calibration, or some kind of magnetic…or radio interference just causes the drone…to run away from home.…Don't despair, and don't give up.…Now, okay, you can despair, but don't give up.…
There are ways of finding a lost drone.…Start with the DJI GO app itself.…It has a find my drone feature that displays…the drone's last location on a map.…By zooming way in, and displaying the terrain map,…if that's useful, you can at least narrow down your search.…If that doesn't get you reunited,…there are heavier duty options.…The Mavic records incredibly detailed telemetry…as it's flying.…Not only the speed and altitude stuff that you see…in DJI GO, but also things like battery levels,…
