[size=14.6667px]Well that was exciting

[size=14.6667px]I nearly lost Mr Mavic this afternoon

[size=14.6667px]I only realised when I reviewed the footage how close I was to having the first controller up for sale on eBay

[size=14.6667px]Here's the video of the crash and the recovery.

dude it was more on your side that the mavic crash you think the obstacle avoidance can see the branches that breech up its your human error. Not the Mavic

I'm new to interpreting the data but does "Mode changed to GPS_Atti" at 9s mean that the GPS signal was not sufficient and it switched to ATTI mode? "Mode changed to WiFi_Reconnect" at 8m38s does that suggest he's using wifi as well?

That looks like user error rather than a screwed up Mavic, the tittle of your post is misleading

As I've said time and time again, sensors will save you from accidents, but they won't save you from stupid.

The mavic did really well. First it was flown directly into tree branches, then it recovered, then it was steered into branches again,  and then it flew forward away from the tree tops.

Flying the mavic in the tree tops   When the wind blows the mavic will rock  when the mavic hits a branch the mavic will fall   Down will come mavic and dji won't pay at all. (Pilot error).

Why fly this close to the tree tops.?  I'd think being another 15 meters high would of been good.

What gives with the battery temp.?  It says 32 F, go to the power/battery info page, and it's flat lined.

This doesn't seem to be right.

I'm impressed that the aircraft managed to correct itself and keep hovering.

Lol, you slowly fly into a clump of trees then blame the mavic? I think most of the problems that people are having with the mavics are self inflicted.

Dang - you were quite a way out there - what's with the dropping down to 11 feet from the water waaaaay out behind those trees - that is probably why you lost signal.

I'm glad you only had two props damaged. And yes, stay above the trees.

I see the horizon was no longer level after recovering from hitting the tree. Was the gimble damaged or did you just had to recallibrate to fix it?
