Push the power button, let go and quickly press and hold till controller and craft turn on. But if that works there isn't a fault but I defiantly question if you should fly this craft. If it doesn't work there is a fault and I apologise.

Yes it's a protective switch , you can imagine if you just happened to hit the switch when you put it into bag then AC may overheat also gimbal motor may overheat . So it's a good failsafe..

Please read the manual... It is explained. This shows you have not read anything yet... Another danger in the sky.

Thanks for being condescending and assuming. I did read the manual and it is not in it. it says turn on the drone not any special way to turn it on. I have also watched the video from the app and again nothing about turning on the drone the way you told me. I have been flying RC planes, probably before you were born.And to make sure im not wrong i just read it yet again and nothing is in the manual I received about turning it on in this way.

I research things. I read everything before i do things this is a big investment and i think im in a welcoming community instead I run into condescending jerks. who don't want to help. Just complain and assume they know everything and i have not read everything.

If you are using Ver 1.4 of the Users manual then look on Page 31:

Sorry about the few who gave you a hard time and assumed you just tried to fly without researching everything you could find on the Mavic. I had a long wait for my Mavic and read the manual 4 times, the updated online one from DJI.
I still had questions of things I didn't understand. Don't give up on this community there are a great bunch of people that will offer exact answers you want. Then of course there are those who don't have the answer, so they just reply with rude comments and add nothing to the forum.
