Hello guys,
Today I launched my Mavic 2 PRO at Blue Ridge mountains North Carolina, it just starts drifting away on it's own. It won't respond to the controls at all. Drifted (flew away from me) to the woods. IMU is calibrated, compass is calibrated, 10 or more GPS locked on, there was NO cellular coverage . Rather than this, everything looks to be just fine. It finally responds after a very stressful 2 mins or so, and then I bring it back down.
Can you help me please?

Thanks,
Alp

In Airdata, look at the Inflight Wind speed.

Would it be because of the wind?
In Phantom 4 I have never had this even winds was gusting.
Mavic 2 seems to be not stable in comparison with P4

At what wind speed did you fly?

With that error I bet there is something wrong with the ESC board. When you turn all of the motors by hand do they all feel the same or does one feel like it's got an obstruction compared to the others? I would send it in for review if I was you.

No idea about the wind speed, I am a newbie to data reading. I had my Phantom 4 for years, never had any issue like this

Your OP showed an screenshot from Airdata. If you look in the main menu -> Weather -> inFlight wind, then you see the wind direction/speed.

The warning message you are referring to is often seen in combination while flying in higher wind speeds as the aircraft should be flown at.

If the pitch/roll angle of the drone execeeds a pre defined threshold, then the high wind warnings / Attitude warnings pop up.
In addition, if the aircraft has maxed out its prop (ESC) power over a period of time, (i.e. hover) then you'll see the ESC warning.

Good day alpsungu. I am sorry to know what happened to your previous flight. Since there is an ESC Error message on the drone. This means that there is a problem with the motor of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. The best thing you need to do is to contact DJI Support at https://www.dji.com/support  for additional help. Thank you for your support.

Got the same error "Not Enough Force/ESC Error"  on my Mavic Pro after installing DJI Propeller Cages yesterday.   I made sure that the motors were free and not rubbing on the cages, that the app was set to "cages" and that the propellers were properly mounted and  not rubbing on anything.   Was flying indoors, thus the cages.  Got the same from my AirData log.  However, the Mavic was flying ok.

Yes, that time winds gusting 42mph the problem was because of that.
Now it flies without any problem.

Wind at 400ft is the problem.  Drop height and use sport mode.
