I have yet to read/see how one takes flight with the RC only, no phone or tablet.

Is this possible?

When I try to take off, I use the left stick up (mode 2) and the motors won't activate. Just sits there blinking green.

Has anyone had any luck? Do I need to enable the CSC command to start/kill the motors in order to do this?

Hi Matman, you can fly with RC only. You need to use CSC to start the motors.
Please make sure RC is connected with aircraft.

But I don't think you can focus the camera without using a phone connected to the RC... correct?

Thanks for the prompt reply/confirmation, Mindy.

The CSC commands seemed too risky to enable as a beginner, but now that it's a week later I may enable it. Haha.

To focus, just enable autofocus with the C1 button and that should work.

I don't think the C1 button works without the phone attached... From what I understand, the C1 button simply activates the DJI Go app focus on the phone, not directly connected to the aircraft at all.  That's also the reason why you can change the function for C1, C2, and the 5 way button on the controller...

Yes, just as mentioned above, you cannot use the C1/C2 button without the mobile device.

CSC is Combination Stick Command.

On the weekend, I was camping in a remote location with no phone reception. Overnight I left my iPhone plugged into the Remote Controller and in the morning the phone was flat. So I tried some short flights without the phone. The Mavic flew perfectly - but 2 out of 3 videos I shot were completely out of focus. One was perfectly sharp. It would be good, as others have suggested if the camera would default to focus at infinity.
