Hi! So I got my Mavic Mini a few days ago. I haven't tested it out outdoors due to time. Here's the thing, I've been testing the batteries out for the last 2 days and I noticed it's not reaching the advertised duration which is 30mins. Upon testing, I ALWAYS get 15mins time and 17mins at most... Of course before I start testing, I always make sure that all the batteries are fully charged and the firmwire is updated. Also, I only test the drone on hover mode, no other movement, just hover.

Is there anyone here who experience the same issue? If so, what did you do to improve the battery performance?

Honestly, I am really disappointed. I don't know if I got faulty batteries..can someone from DJI help? would really appreciate any response. Thanks!

Are you flying with the prop guards or some other payload? I only get about 15 minutes with the prop guards on due to the extra weight. With them off, I get around 25 minutes.

Just a question, is your flight distance also showing up incorrectly on your DJI Forum profile too?  If you look at mine apparently I flew 10 million feet with my Mavic Mini.

No problem.  Also, from what I can tell from your profile you are from the Philippines. What are the restrictions there compared to the USA?  I might be taking a trip there to the provinces in a year or two.

Yep, I'm from the Philippines Good question! I haven't tried flying outdoors yet. I literally just testing the drone and hovering it. I haven't get the chance fiddling with the app and researching on the flight restrictions here. Will inform you as soon as I get some infos

Hahaha!! That's amazing. Seems like you've been flying nonstop since before its release

Yeah mine's wrong. I have not flown 220km. Actually my flight logs say 2.2km.

Okay so I just finished testing the Mini. Took off without the prop guards. Surprise surprise, I got 26mins and 2secs flight time! Huge improvement.

Thanks Bjord!

Probably turn on autosync while on wifi... I am nowhere near your crazy numbers, but my real traveled distance Is half of what Is shown here on the forum...
The problem seems to be, that flights don't use unique ID (as I said couple of days ago - a flight start timestamp seems like a no-brainer to me, so since there is no validation for duplicate records - every time you hit sync manually, you will re-send the logs, that app thinks are not synced yet - your case Is pretty extreme though)

Yeah you are right.  Every time I log into my DJI Fly app, it changes by like a million lol.
