Have you tried both the Auto-takeoff in DJI Go4 and using the sticks to initiate take off?

Sticks dont initiate take off.
Auto takeoff and landing work. Sticks do not respond at all.
Controller displays "Ready To Go"
Binding controller to RC has been done too.
Very frustrating. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Thnx

Ok so really what I'm saying is, is your Mavic starting up and just when you try to fire up the motors they won't turn on. Is it connected to the app and can you see gps ready to fly, also have you tried auto start.

So if auto take off works then your motors (and ESC) are good. It sounds like the Mavic is not recognizing the sticks at their full extents. A control calibration may fix that.

Yep Mavic starts up fine and motors wont fire up.
Yes connected to app and its shows ready to fly (no error messages).
Auto take off works but controller doesnt respond, i have to then also use auto function to land.

I would say your problem is with controller can you try paring it with AC

In that case, I'd open a ticket with DJI. Something is preventing the Mavic from getting the command to take off. You could possibly live with just doing an auto-takeoff but I wouldn't do that since it indicates something is wrong with the RC and this could get worse or have other effects.

Exact same problem here. Always start the motors using the sticks. Two flights yesterday first flight sticks wouldn't start motor, had to use swipe to take off. I could land using the sticks though. Second flight sticks did initiate the motor. Very odd. I just put it down to software buginess since the 600 update.
