The bottom Left propeller is not balanced? I put on my spare and it does the same thing. (I added a picture but i'm not sure if it uploaded properly)

Did you turn the motors on yet? It should balance itself out

I take it you mean the props end this way when the Mavic is shut down? Looks normal to me, not all hinges of every prop may be equally "loose".
If  the Mavic hovers steady in flight, i'd say no problemo!

I see absolutely nothing wrong with those photos. Looks entirely normal to me.

Looks fine. I wouldn't worry about it unless you see vibrations in the footage while flying.

One set of props that came with mavic were slightly off too. Think it's that box it comes in. The mavic is sitting on those bottom props. Just a guess, doesn't seem like it should matter.

But I bought a set from the apple store and they were perfect. I noticed with the old props she would stay in place but it looked funny cause always compensating. So, see the drone dipping left and right to stay in one spot. New props it's like a table, no more awkward hovering. It made a difference with mine at least.

Yes this is the same problem I am having, I got new propellers on the way. My mavic would hover in a circular motion and would not sit still. Also with full stick forward it would pull to the right.

According to your pictures, the propellers seem like normal.
Did you update the firmware to latest version?
Have you tried to calibrate the RC?

DJI Mindy, I'm beginning to think this was operator error. I was flying the mavic in our gravel pit next to our steel sided shop at night time so I can see through the windows who was in there. I bet the building threw off the compass. Anyway i just flew the drone again today in a new area and those symptoms went away. However someone thought it would be funny to shoot a lazer pointer at my drone which was on my property, so I panned my camera down and landed. Are lazer pointers harmful?

Also I believe i updated firmware on december 11, I have not re-calibrated the R/C. The bird seems to be as good as new!

Thank you for your update and Lazer pointer is not harmful.
