How not to lose Mavic Pro

  1. If you take off in a strong wind, you need to constantly monitor the horizontal speed and position of the copter on the map. You should remember, at different heights, the wind also differs in strength. And in the mountains, the strength and direction of the wind can change dramatically.
  2. If even in the sport mode stick pitch is tilted to the max, and copter is very slow flying or flying back (this is seen by the value of the horizontal speed and position on the map). Or you threw all the sticks and copter must keep the point, but it drifts in P mode – your copter is in danger.
  3. Do not turn on RTH. First of all, we reduce the flight altitude to a little above the level of obstacles (buildings, trees). Usually, the lower the flight altitude, the weaker the wind. If wind very strong at any height, RTH will not return the copter in the RTH mode. It will be blown away and in the end, you will lose drone. If the wind below is noticeably quieter, you can try to press RTH, take a breath and monitor the movement of the copter.
  4. If the drone can’t fly (it blows down), but the point holds, you can keep in place copter at this point and immediately got to it. To do this, you need to enable HOVER mode in DJI go settings: general settings – advanced settings – failsafe mode. No one will steal it, you can landing it when you get to device. This option is suitable if you are not far from the drone (it has enough battery power to hang at a point). But if the copter is a kilometer or more away from you, in an unknown area, then this option is not suitable.
  5. If the copter can’t fly and doesn’t hold the point and it’s far away from you, then there is no recourse but to need to look for an emergency landing place. When landing, the signal will probably disappear and device will turn on RTH mode. So you have two options for land the copter:
  • to set a new “Home” point at your current location. The main thing that the copter did not fly out of the circle, a radius of 20m. Otherwise, it will not land and will begin to perform RTH with the rise to the height of the return.
  • or more reliable way – enable in DJI Go settings: general settings – advanced settings – failsafe mode LANDING mode.
