A few days ago my Mavic Pro crashed.....


I have often avoided crashes before:



I had care refresh, so I sent it off to DJI, now waiting for the replacement...

Crashed how? Was it pilot error, it looks like you play it very close to the wind .

Not surprised you crashed.  It appears that you're a pretty reckless flyer.  

Makes for some good vids but personally, I don't take those kind of chances.

Thanks for sharing.

Looks like you flew to close to a tree branch, caught drone on twig, and spun drone into an uncontrolled abrupt landing...

Hi Mkurr, I'm sorry to know what happened to your drone. This is not what DJI's wants you to experience. By the way, I tried to check your case using your forum email, unfortunately, I was not able to track the ticket number. Kindly provide me your case number so that we can give you an update. Should you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us anytime. We're here to help, thanks!

I got very good advice from one of the members here on forum,  mind you I just can't remember who it was, but his advice stuck with me every time I fly,  HEIGHT IS YOUR BEST FRIEND.

Yes, actually the second shot in the "almost crash video" was totally under control, I flew through there a bunch of times...

Yes, it makes flying more safe, but often you get the amazing videos at tree level...

Well, no, it hit a tree, stuck in it, and someone climbed up and got it down for me...

Well, your videos are awesome.  I checked out some of the others on your Youtube page.  I know your area -- a friend had a vacation house in Frankfort and I've been sledding up there and in Old Forge many times.

Keep up the great work.

Thanks for your grand support! If you send my channel to 100 people and they send it to 100 each I think it might just influence my channel in the right direction...

Yeah, many videos showing that the drone was flying really close to trees.  There are tons of drone crash videos where the pilots were playing it too close.  It happens, even when you have line of sight, you just have to be more vigilant and give your drone more room, though they do make for great videos.

I would call it risky business. I like to see those videos but I don't have enough money to crash my MA once in a while on purpose.
