Join Jim Heid for an in-depth discussion in this video What's going on during warmup?, part of DJI Mavic Pro: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
- When you hear your drone make that startup sound,…what you're hearing is part of…the drone's power-up sequence.…Understanding what's going on during that entire sequence…will help you fly safely and also give you an appreciation…for the technology that's built into these things.…Some parts of the power-on sequence…you can see for yourself.…The props jiggle a little as the drone tests each motor.…The gimbal goes through its full range of motion.…If something is blocking the gimbal, or if you've forgotten…to remove the plastic gimbal clamp, an error message appears…on the DJI Go app and the remote controller.…
Other parts of the power-on sequence happen under the hood.…Inside the drone is a component called…the inertial measurement unit, or IMU for short.…Think of the IMU as a very sophisticated version…of the accelerometer in your phone.…That thing that lets your phone know…whether it's vertical, horizontal or in between.…The IMU in a drone lets the drone know how it's moving.…Tilting back and forth, that's called pitch.…
