How to Fly Safe

Whether you’re just a beginner or a seasoned professional, it’s possible for anyone to fly a DJI drone. However, though most DJI all-in-one drones are ready to fly the moment you get them, pilots still need to be cautious and well-prepared to handle sticky situations. Better to be safe than sorry, right?

Before you take off, you should always do a pre-check of your app settings and your environment. This tutorial video will show you how to prepare for a safe flight:

Safety Tips - Preflight Checklist and Flight Environment Selection

Once you have checked everything and you’re ready to go, take off slowly and go get the shots you need. During flight, if you have low battery or loose signal, you may see some warnings appear in the app. It’s important to know how to react when you see such warnings. Check out this tutorial to learn more:
DJI Safety Tips – Precautions to Take During Flight

If you don’t fly in an open area, you’re more likely to encounter signal interference. No matter how badly you want to capture a shot, if you encounter interference, switch to ATTI mode, and try to find another spot without interference. The key is not to panic! This tutorial video offers some suggestions about what to do when unexpected problems like compass interference occur.

Well, I don't have my mavic yet, but I will sure be watching these when I get home tonight.   Brilliant idea!   If only this had been done earlier, although I suspect a lot of people that NEED to watch things like this wouldn't have watched them anyway.

Hopefully the videos will be as good and informative as they look from the outside.

Have a look at all the Mavic related videos Here. The above are good general guidance but some of the detail is out of date now.

You cant do it manually on the Mavic. GPS has to be lost and it will switch automatically or flown in doors where GPS cant be reached.
