Open club for DJI drones owners and fans.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Echodyne startup from Kirkland, Wash., Whose investors include Bill Gates, and the University of Washington assisted the US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Office (DARPA) in testing the Aerial Dragnet project for a drone city tracking and tracking system at an altitude of less than 300 m. Echodyne provided DARPA with compact radar systems, and the University of Washington Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) took part in a system test that took place during the week of October in the San Diego area. Echodyne's EchoGuard and EchoFlight radar systems were installed on two tethered balloons above the city at an altitude of 400 feet (122 m), as well as on rooftops around San Diego and National City. According to Echodyne Technical Director Tom Driscoll, more than a dozen company radars were involved in the experiment. During testing, scientists sent various types of drones to the sky above the city to identify them with a detection and tracking system. The main problem with the Aerial Dragnet system is the difficulty in distinguishing drones from other objects in the background, including birds and land vehicles.

  9. Which accessories you can recommend to have for every drone pilot?
  10. I haven't tested it by myself yet, but i saw a comment where Mavic 2 Pro user confirmed what 256 GB micro SDXC card worked fine in his drone. Here is the quote:
  11. There are a lot of good 256 GB micro SD cards on the market, but the owner's manual for the Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom states that "Supporting Micro SD with capacity up to 128 GB and R/W speed up to UHS-I Speed Grade 3." I know that sometimes cameras / drones manufacturers say their hardware will only support up to a certain size of micro SD card, but in fact they actually support larger micro SD cards. Have you tested a 256 GB micro SD cards in the Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom, it works?
  12. On official DJI website we can find a very short list of recommended microSDHC / microSDXC cards for Mavic 2 Pro / Zoom. Just a few models by two manufacturers: Sandisk Extreme V30 Sandisk Extreme Pro V30 Kingston Canvas Go!

  15. Author of following article: PAT KAY. I’ve had the amazing opportunity to be a partner for the DJI Mavic Air campaign, which meant that I’ve been flying this tiny drone for the last 3 weeks. A lot of people have asked me about the stills quality of this drone (for video quality, check out my buddy @itchban who was also on the campaign with me). What you’ll find here is 10 images – RAW and edited. These images will give you a great idea of how good the RAW quality and dynamic range is, as well as how far you can push these files. *Spoiler alert* It’s great. Sharpness is decent, and there’s plenty of dynamic range to work with. Some of the RAW files I’ve deliberately chosen to edit were the severely under exposed or over exposed frames from the AEB function I spend most of my time shooting in. You really can push these files quite some way before they start to fall apart – some of the tree shots were 2 to 3 stops under exposed. I hope these images are helpful! If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment! Also you may want to see: Mavic Air Video Examples and Reviews. Source.
  16. Frequently Asked Questions on Mavic Air See also: Mavic Air specs. Buy Mavic Air How many ways are there to fly the Mavic Air and how do I change control methods? There are three ways to fly the Mavic Air. You can use the dedicated remote controller, your smartphone, or both together. For the other two options, the Mavic Air connects to your smartphone via DJI GO 4. How do I activate the Mavic Air? Connect the Mavic Air with your mobile device and follow the instructions in DJI GO 4 to complete activation. Is the Mavic Air waterproof? No. What Micro SD cards are recommended to use with the Mavic Air? 16 GB: Sandisk Extreme Kingston 16GB SDHC-I SDCAC/16GB 32 GB: Sandisk Extreme V30 Sandisk Extreme V30 A1 Sandisk Extreme V30 Pro A1 64 GB: Sandisk Extreme V30 A1 Sandisk Extreme Pro V30 A1 128 GB: Sandisk Extreme V30 A1 Sandisk Extreme Plus V30 A1 Remote Controller Can I connect my smartphone to the remote controller using an ordinary USB cable? Yes. You can use an ordinary USB cable to connect your smartphone to the remote controller via the USB port at the bottom of the controller, but this may result in more discomfort when handling. Different cables come with the aircraft to meet your needs. Where can I find the Mavic Air’s Wi-Fi name and password? For safety reasons, every Mavic Air has a unique Wi-Fi name and password. These are listed on the side of the aircraft body, in the battery compartment, and on the carrying case. (For iOS systems, iOS v9.0 or later is required.) Connect your smartphone to the aircraft’s Wi-Fi by scanning the QR code with DJI GO 4 app for first-time use. Alternatively, you can manually type in the Wi-Fi name and password. How can I change the Mavic Air’s Wi-Fi name and password? First, connect your smartphone to the aircraft via Wi-Fi. Next, enter the DJI GO 4 app and go to Wi-Fi Settings to change the Wi-Fi name and password. You can also change the Wi-Fi name and password with DJI Assistant 2 on a computer. Is it possible to connect to the Mavic Air’s Wi-Fi by using a third-party app to scan the QR code? No. You can only scan the QR code to connect to the aircraft’s Wi-Fi using DJI GO 4. Propulsion Should I take the propellers off when transporting the Mavic Air? Doing so isn’t necessary. Why does the Mavic Air use non-foldable propellers? The non-foldable propellers are more streamlined, making the Mavic Air smaller and more portable when folded. What is the highest level of wind the Mavic Air can resist? The Mavic Air can withstand wind speeds up to 10 m/s. What is the Mavic Air’s max service ceiling above sea level? 16,400 ft (5000 m). Features What is the maximum control range of the Mavic Air in SmartCapture? The control range is 8.2–19.68 ft (2.5–6 m). What Panorama modes does the Mavic Air support? The Mavic Air supports the following panorama modes: Vertical: The camera automatically takes three vertical photos, stitching them into one panorama. Horizontal: The camera will take nine photos from different angles, stitching them into one panorama. 180°: The Mavic Air automatically rotates its body and gimbal shooting 21 pictures, stitching them together in DJI GO 4 for a breathtaking 180° panorama. Sphere: The Mavic Air automatically rotates its body and gimbal to shoot 25 photos, stitching them together for an eye-catching spherical panorama. When flying the Mavic Air close to me in SmartCapture mode, why does the aircraft remain at eye level? SmartCapture only allows the Mavic Air to fly at eye level when it’s 9.8 feet (3 meters) or less away from you. This is to ensure better flight safety and control precision. You can gesture to fly higher or lower when it’s farther away from you. Batteries Can the Mavic Air Battery Charger be used to charge the aircraft and RC at the same time? Yes. What is the Battery to Power Bank Adaptor used for? Turn on the Mavic Pro in Wi-Fi mode, press the linking button and hold for 5s. What functions does the power button perform? The power button powers on and off the battery. To do this, press it once, and then press again, holding it for at least two seconds to power on or off the battery. The power button also allows you to check the battery level. To do this, press the power button once and observe how many LEDs light up for the power level. How long does it take to charge a battery fully? It takes 55 minutes to charge a battery fully when using a standard USB charger or a Charging Hub. How often should I charge my batteries? It is recommended to charge batteries at least once every three months fully. Updating Firmware Can I use other apps while updating DJI GO 4? No. If you do, the update will fail. You will then need to download the firmware and update again. Why does DJI GO 4 remind me to reconnect to the Mavic Air’s Wi-Fi right before it restarts to complete the update? Before the update is complete, the aircraft will need to restart. Once it does, reconnect your mobile device to the Mavic Air’s Wi-Fi. DJI GO 4 is just reminding you that you will need to do this for a successful update. Can I disconnect from the internet once the firmware is downloaded successfully? Yes. What should I do if the aircraft and battery firmware versions are inconsistent? Connect the Mavic Air to DJI GO 4, and the app will inform you of appropriate updates to ensure consistency. What factors could lead to an update failure? a. Low-battery level. Make sure the battery level is higher than 50%. b. Powering off the Mavic Air or the remote controller during the update. If this happens, please restart the Mavic Air and the remote controller and begin the update again. c. Internet disconnection when downloading firmware. d. If update failure persists, or the remote controller does not link with the aircraft, there may be firmware inconsistencies between devices. In this case, use DJI Assistant 2 on your computer to update your aircraft and the remote controller to the latest versions separately. Video Transmission What is the Mavic Air’s video transmission range? When connected to the remote controller: 2.4GHz FCC: 4000 m, CE: 2000 m, SRRC: 2000 m (unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant). 5.8GHz FCC: 4000 m, CE: 500 m, SRRC: 2500 m (unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant). When connected to a mobile device: Max height: 50 m Max distance: 80 m What is the resolution of the Mavic Air’s video transmission? 720p at 30 fps. What is the latency of the Mavic Air’s video transmission? The video transmission latency to your mobile device is 170 to 240 ms. However, this is subject to the performance of your mobile device and signal interference. Can frequency bands be manually adjusted during video transmission? DJI GO 4 chooses a frequency band automatically by default, but users can manually select between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies, according to actual needs.
