New Mavic Pro pulled out of the box, I charge the Mavic Pro battery and it has 4 green LEDS which is 100% I push that button, I only get 4 LEDS and nothing else. I tried to turn on controller, nothing happens and when I connect controller to charge, it flicks at 2 PCT and show BAT 100 PCT. I am not sure what is the issue. Is there an another way to do the startup routine?

Puzzled and feeling too bad about this.

Smokey,

JMHO but if you're having difficulty turning these devices on you should probably spend a lot more time on the manual and watching the many videos available here and on YT. I got my bird the night before last and still have yet to fly with it. Too many things to learn and sort out first and I've been flying these things for a few years now. I have 4 DJI birds and another 4 from other manufacturers. Maybe I'm just a little slow.

Smokey,

Please read the manual . . . it's complex machine that you just paid a sizeable investment for and waited a long time to receive.  

It's obvious you're not familiar with DJI drones.

Nobody wants to see a broken Mavic in your future but . . .

Please get familiar with the Manual. Mavic was my first drone and the first flight I did I completely had no idea how to finish the landing sequence. Tried a hand catch and cut my thumb. Silly I know and I immediately felt like an idiot but none the less, all the info I needed was in the manual, I was just too eager to get started after over a months delay in production.

The timing for the power on procedure on the controller seems to be slightly different that what is required to turn on the drone (slightly longer time to hold?). You'll get it down after a few times. Making it hard to accidentally turn it on and off is a good thing.

R&L,

Hopefully, he'll heed everyone's advice and RTFM! Can't make the bet, unfortunately the odds aren't in my favor.

I can't believe, given an chance you keep taking cheap shots as if I did not read the manual. I have 5 quads and it is just a over look on my part on the sequence but immediately  you don't have pounce on people's self esteem try to pour everything you got.

Funny people like you spend lot of time on the forums just for an opportunity. Less is more my friend. Easy up
