I learned this early on when flying my drones. ALWAYS check for compass errors and interference and check that your drone has a STRONG GPS signal.
Obvious video, but funny to see these compared.
You may have seen the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise lighting beacon and wondered how you can get that same sort of lighting beacon without buying an entirely new drone. If you already own a drone, you can get these STROBON Cree LED strobe lights for dirt cheap and attach them to your drone with these mounts.
From what I can tell, these lights are nearly as bright as the official DJI Beacon and can be seen from nearly 3 miles away. If you’re concerned about weight, each of these mounts PLUS the Cree LED weighs an additional 5 grams (not a whole lot even if you use 4). And from various videos shown online, it doesn’t seem to affect any video recording at all once the drone is in the air.
Here are a couple of videos of the lights in action on various drones.
DJI has just released a new controller for the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom. You can get it as part of the drone package or as a standalone unit for $649. The controller has an integrated super-bright screen and runs a custom Android version of the DJI app. I’m genuinely curious how this compares to using an iPhone and the regular standard controller.
