My 1st Crash Ever since i fly drone.  Stupid, Amazing and Funny at the same time lol



i also posted 2 photos.  Photo of mavic air after crash and photo of mavic air after crash and after we changed the props lol


Hello everyone I did that video to share my experience, observation and precaution to take when using the Mavic Air under trees and hope that this can help some of you.

History

We were on our way to shoot for some running footage under trees and on top of the trees.  What happen was that we take off then we lost connection of remote to mobile phone a cable issue.  While the phone was disconnected we tried to take off the cable and connect it again but no result.  We accidentally switch off the remote lol most stupid thing to do hahaha it was just a habit we had before taking off the drone if not connected we use to switch remote off and switch on get it connected to phone then take off.  This time habit took over while de drone was hovering we switched of the remote and turn it on.  Lol what happen was then switched the remote off the drone immediately return to home.  It started to gain altitude and get into the branches before that the remote can connect again to the drone.  

The only thing we was able to do when the drone went into the trees branches was to look at it.  We were more amazed than afraid and anxious.  Why because the way the drone keeps on flying between the branches was amazing lol it went into the branches lost altitude and then fly again into them and finally fall down.  I think that it was because the props got damaged.  

The drone fall down we switch it off.  All the props was damaged but the amazing this were no big stretch on the drone all prop motors was in perfect condition, and the gimbal was also in perfect condition not a single damage to the drone.

We replaced the props, by precaution did an IMU calibration and Compass Calibration then then take off the drone again.  It took of normally, no vibration nothing. We take off.  We did some flight test up the sugar cane field where there is no risk of injury if it fall now and amazing if fly awesome.  We did normal fly then sports mode everting was fully functional.  After testing we change battery and start shooting the running video.  Amazing everything worked perfect and after the crash we shoot many other video without any issue.  This drone is amazing.

I would like to thank dji for providing such quality and solid drone.  You are amazing !!! love it

Now precaution to take to avoid stupid crash lol

1.  Always make sure that your remote and phone have a solid connection by moving the phone a little to see if it get disconnected from the mobile.

2.  If mobile get disconnect do not switch off the remote.  If the done is near to you flying over trees just land it if the done is far do RTH if not flying under trees

3.  When take off make sure that you do it in an open and clear area so that when RTH its land on a clear space.

4.  If shooting under trees and the remote disconnect from the phone.  Just land the drone and don’t attempts stupid thing like we did loool

5.  After landing the drone, exit dji go app and reconnect cable and make sure that you wont lost connection between remote and phone before taking off hihih …

Have fun and always make sure that if shooting under trees that there are no people around to avoid any injuries as we did … we took precaution to make sure that there was no one around before we took of hihi

Big kiss to everyone hope that this experience might help some of you hihihihihih

Thanks for sharing your mishap and the list of precautions that we all should remember to avoid a crash.

Nearly missed this clip Ranini. I know exactly how you felt when the branches jump out in front of you.
By the way when are you getting a car? I reckon watching all that running tires me out

Yea. Mavic needs hardened steel prop blades for pruning operations (also to take care of pesky birds) .
Can't see DJI offering that option real soon though.
At least you survived and learnt something

Now if DJI could issue reverse pitch propellers and re-program the IMU with an inverted flight software button then we could use our Mavic's to trim the lawn Inverted Flight

This would be a very cool party trick, although take-off might be a problem

Would be awesome but I think that a little top object detection sensor would be great
Maybe Mavic Air 2 will be equipped with front, back side, bottom and top sensors.  Would be awesome
