Mine stopped focusing and now I have to carry this brick around India for the next two months because DJI doesn't ship here and even if they did they only give you warranty service in your home country.

Mine has a faulty GPS out-of-box. I wasn't even able to have a flight just because it never catches a single satellite

Guys this thread is very old and should probably die.  It was made with an intent of bashing DJI when the Mavic was first launched, it really has no other purpose.  Continuing to post issues in this thread is useless and will be fruitless to you.  If you are having issues with your Mavic I suggest starting a new thread.

Hi , i'm new here.
I get my mavic pro Tuesday , and total time of flight = 0 !
everything was ok when i connected the controller to my Galaxy A3.
But ... i was stupid enough to accept the update !
Now , i have bring back the mavic to v01.03.0400 but the controller stop update at 20%.
then the usb sound is disconnection / reconnection and after 1 or 2 min it tell me Update failed ...
I have try all what was on every tutorials (not only one time)
So now , when i start dji assistant 2 and connect the RC it tell me that some firmware incompatibility between some modules and devices , i say ok to update.
At end it tell me Update is OK , but the RC stay in Connecting mode when i retry , the pairing doesn't work too , i have to wait like 5 to 10min in Connecting mode up i hear the sound
when i press C1,C2,Record ... when i then press shutter it just made the same sound and don't come in pairing mode
I then search , found and take a look at the log ...
here is what happens before the firmware stuck :

[14:32:53][UpgradeManager      ] set date time to device success!!!
[14:32:53][P4Device2           ] SN : 08XJDCN00101YV
[14:32:57][WebGetter2          ] recv server ack...
[14:32:58][UpgradeManager      ] get nfz version timeout!!!
[14:33:16][upgrade1860Ex       ] ======================= UPGRADE FAILURE: push upgrade failed status, error code: 0x040603
[14:33:16][upgrade1860Ex       ] ======================= Time :  78.60 second
[14:33:16][DiagMsg             ] push upgrade failed status, error code: 0x040603
[14:33:16][UpgradeMgr          ]    Dm368_ground(1) result false
[14:33:16][UpgradeManager      ] WebActionResult:
[14:33:16][UpgradeMgr          ] upgrade_pack_file_data time used: 61.431 Second
[14:33:16][UpgradeMgr          ] enable_upgrading_flag: false

Well , i just hope i don't give DJI 1500 Bucks for a non flying drone ...

And for be sure it's coming from internet connection , i have made direct connection with Ethernet cable , not Wi-Fi for be sure ...

Is someone here who can help with this issue or do i now have a useless brick ?

Cheers.

Forward Vision Senson Calibration Error.          I have calibrated it 20 times already with the PC software.  I downgraded the firmware.  Still getting the error.  I haven't even flown it yet.  I just got it today and can't get past it  Of course DJI support is not available on weekends....so I'm just stuck!.

Out of the box:
I updated firmware, next problems are found.
Drunken horizon ( also after recalibration of IMU and gimbal )
wobbly video capture, which also makes taking pictures useless.
Drone won't stay perfect on one place and drifts away in diagonal direction ( North-West )
I will read myself through the forum, maybe I find a possible solution, but till so far I see a lot of same cases and most are send back to dhj.

I got 3 Mavic Pros before getting a functioning unit in the end:
#1 faulty unit: Poor video (jello) shooting at 1080/60, Poor video (jello) due to vibration/gimbal
#2 faulty unit: Poor video (jello) shooting at 1080/60, Poor video (jello) due to vibration/gimbal, Horizontal Tilt Issue/Crooked horizon
#3 faulty unit: Poor video (jello) shooting at 1080/60, Camera issues - sharp center but blurry corners

I found the video quality at 1080p is extremely poor at 48fps and above, because of a strong aliasing. All four units were affected; it looks like I will have to live with this one...

Oh .. you havent heard about the MASSIVE issue with the 1080 resolution on the mavic...

It flat out does not work.

Mine flies like a dream, no problems whatsoever. I think many of the reported problems are user errors, but, there will obviously be some that fail.

mine flies well as well, the issue is that the video is no good, unfocused VGA 640 K resolution

The  sound from the cached video from the tablet i used as a display. I was new to this at that time and was watching the cached video and the display was not optimised via the menus on the tablet  once I optimised the video display, the video was great IF I use AFC until I reach a height to lock into infinity then switched to manual to prevent any more Auto Focusing.  AFC will de focus under certain circumstances.

I'm at 40 flights so far including a quick flight on a small Bahamian island on vacation-some video problems with choppiness but it was really hot ambient temperature that day. Otherwise have been very pleased so far.

I think it is important to get an accurate picture of what is being received by end users of the first batch that shipped. Hopefully the result shows very few issues noticed and more consumers can feel confident in ordering this product.

IAs soon as I received my mavic 2 of my friends were going to get same, Not anymore.

This thread is dead, I’m sure you can dig up a few more particularly form the first few weeks of Mavic release, but it turned out that so many new flyers with no experience are responsible for most of the problems with their drones, perhaps lack of experience is part of your own problem because the vast majority of Mavic flyers seem to be doing just fine with their equipment.

You come across as a dji shill as every post that you have made is just lickin their  butts and defending their dodgy practices. So how much do dji pay you to promote their stuff? Almost as bad as Mad Angler on RC groups.

Whats' wrong with this thread? Why would you want it dead and buried?  It appears that there are a lot of votes here matey!

Because most of it is 2016, I’ve seen it all before, but being the idiot you are portraying I expect you didn’t notice that, if you dig deep enough you can go back to 2014, and I’m sure if you go to Apple forums when they were a 10 year old company you will dig up some real problems there, particularly the fact they just sacked Steve jobs, move on and stop being an idiot.

Maybe you’d be better using your time getting yourself sorted, it’s easy pick those who have constant problems , they spend their time complaining never getting anything sorted.
