Just putting it out there in case there might be a new FW update in the next few months.

DJI, could you please add the flight characteristics of the Mavic 2 to the next FW? Or if you're planning on bringing out the M4 soon, please make that fly like the M2.

The M3 fly's like it's got lane assist on all the time and it can't spin on it's axis. Its does this weird arc thing which is getting right on my moobs!

There was a post on here and the person created a motion graphic showing the issue, but can't find it. I think he was either Italian or French.

I live in hope...

Phil

If your drone can't rotate on its axis, there's something wrong with it.
But more information would be needed to understand what the problem is.

What's amazing is there seems to be only a handful of people who seem to have identified that the M3 (well, all 2022 onwards Mavics) fly in a completely different manner to the older ones, where the drone will not fly forwards at any great speed when yawing from a hover. Further to this, the modern mavics are unable to spin during forward flight to carry on travelling in the same direction, but facing the other way.

These threads come up every now and then people who can't identify the problem then say everything is fine.

Here is a perfect example showing a comparison between old flying and new flying. https://forum.dji.com/forum.php? ... p;page=1#pid2902437

We want DJI to give us the option to have this stupid 'banked turns' to be switched off, so we can fly exactly as we tell the drone to fly.

Yes, it amazes me too. I had much more convidence with the 2 than the 3, along with the issue of it being really y skittish in the air. With the 2, I could literally wang it back at full speed, spin it round mid air, air brake and land it at my feet. I wouldn't even attempt that with the 3, unless I wanted to spend a few hours in A&E.

Don't get me wrong, other than that I actually think the pictures off it are amazing, so as Mick would say,  'You can't always have what you want'

Well done for finding the earlier post, this descibes the issue perfectly.

DJI please comment and give it some thought.

It's pretty bad that this has been discussed since November with no comment on the matter. I saw they've made a toggle on the enterprise drone but not other models in the series. They took atti mode away, and now they've dumbed down the flight process to the point of costing professionals.

A director looking over your shoulder doesn't care about active track or turn assist. A "pro" tool should have pro settings, meaning the ability to toggle certain features on/off. This is an area where DJI needs to read the room.

Agreed.  Notably the Mavic 3 Enterprise has the option to change this characteristic and turn this off.
