So just got in after climbing the roof of a commercial building next to me after the mavic crashed.


Please have a look at the video it happens at the end of video.

you can see it veer off onto the building


so while cruising at 200 feet for a while i used the return home fuction it came back just fine then hoverd for 48 sec then I pulled the stick down, it came down then when it got close to the building i moved the stick to the left then the mavic forced its way towards the building and crashed on the roof.


DJI could you look into this???

and if someone could tell me how to get the flight logs I would appreciate it.

Replay the flight from the Go App and check your stick inputs. Looks like you panicked and went the wrong way.

"Crashed" on the roof? At what point in the video?

Looks like you landed it on the roof.

Honestly seems like you moved the stick in the wrong direction, maybe as a result of not being sure of the orientation of the quad. But as was mentioned, review the stick inputs in the Go App. You can record them and post the video of that here to help rule that out as a factor in the crash.

Seems like pilot error. Night flying over traffic on your 2nd day with new hardware probably wasn't a good call.

out of VLOS for me is bettere no use the drone..

so in case you were able to reture the drone manually and not using the RTH,

rth is good  but if the sensor find a obastacle , if you don't calibrate the FAILSAFE RTH , the drone is not able to avoid them

So did you use RTH on the drone, remember the drone uses the camera to find the right spot if its dark well.............

Yeah, it would be good to know if RTH was still active.

Also OP, is there any chance course lock could have gotten enabled? I believe that could cause opposite movements than expected.

Hi LaCeTv_com
Sorry to hear about your crash, you can upload you logs to above link, you really can't tell much from the video, but as Aus air said you can replay your flight in the app at the bottom of the screen you will be able to see stick movements.

Flying at night around a lot of buildings and other stuff that can cause interference it's a risky business,
You may need to speak to a dji mod here and he will be able to tell you where to load your logs for dji to look at, to see if it was a malfunction or not.

But make sure you sync your flight , you can also do this on your flight page sync flight in upper right hand corner.
Good luck..

p.51 of the manual "If Landing Protection determines that the ground is not suitable for landing, the Mavic Pro will hover and wait for pilot confirmation".

Looks like RTH didn't like landing in the dark so was hovering. Did you see any prompts on the screen?
