The Mavic Mini is DJI’s latest compact drone or quadcopter. Weighing in at just under 250grams, it literally “flies below the radar” of many federal airspace agencies when it comes to registration requirements. It has become the go-to drone for travel as well, due to the extremely compact size of the Mavic Mini. The Giveaway: Mavic Mini Giveaway & Review - Win A FREE DJI Drone!

    Better way to charge DJI batteries

    Ever wonder how you could achieve the perfect storage voltage on your DJI battery? Here is a simple, cost-effective solution to charge your DJI batteries perfectly to storage voltage: Watch this video on YouTube. Note: Warning I have done my best to ensure there are no mistakes made on this page. Please use common sense and verify settings before testing this out. I always test the charge leads once I get them with my multimeter to ensure I am seeing the voltage that I expect. Sure the charger has some built-in safety features, but I want to make sure I’m seeing the expected voltage. This means that the pins are correct on the cable. The charger in the video is the Imax B6 V2 AC. It has a charge limit of 50W and a discharge limit of 5W. I picked up the Hota D6+ (not the D6 or D6pro, look for the important difference before buying) for my LiPo/LiHV crazed life, and it will charge up to 300W on AC and 700W on DC!!! It does require XT60 battery plugs so keep that in mind. The same rules apply as mentioned in the video. The dischargers mentioned were the ISDT FD-100 and ISDT FD-200. The 200 has Bluetooth so you can change the storage voltage setting for example. Here’s the settings you will need: Mavic 2 Pro & Zoom Chemistry: LiHV Number of cells: 4 (select 4S -- 15.2V) Max Charge rate: 3.8A (you would need a charger that does 60Watt to charge at this rate) Charge Lead Links: Mavic 2 Pro & Zoom Charge Lead Phantom 4, Phantom 4 Adv & Pro & Pro+ Chemistry: LiHV Number of cells: 4 (select 4S -- 15.2V) Max Charge rate: 5.8A (you would need a charger that does 90Watt to charge at this rate) Charge Lead Links: Phantom 4 Charge Lead Mavic Pro Chemistry: LiHV Number of cells: 3 (select 3S -- 11.4V) Max Charge rate: 3.8A (achieved with a 50Watt charger!) Charge Lead Links: Mavic Pro Charge Lead Mavic Air Chemistry: LiHV Number of cells: 3 (select 3S -- 11.4V) Max Charge rate: 2.4A (achieved with a 50Watt charger!) Charge Lead Link: Mavic Air Charge Lead Mavic Mini Chemistry: LiIon (Different!!) Number of cells: 2 LiIo (select 2S -- 7.2V) Max Charge rate: 2.4A (achieved with a 50Watt charger!) Charge Lead Link: Cables are still coming to market, just not yet out at the time of writing Phantom 3 Pro, Adv, Std, 4K Chemistry: LiHV Number of cells: 4 (select 4S -- 15.2V) Max Charge rate: 5.8A (you would need a charger that does 90Watt to charge at this rate)...

    Remote ID – FAA Fail. Why it is so bad, and what we can do

    The FAA published its Remote ID NPRM or Notice for Proposed Rulemaking. Essentially this is a document draft of the laws that the FAA wants to put into place currently. We have a chance to comment on these proposed rules, however. Check out everything you need to know about the proposal from the FAA here: https://youtu.be/lJ7czUJ509k Important Remote ID Links: Check out the Remote ID NRPM from the FAA – The official FAA Remote ID NPRM Click here to go comment on the proposal – The official FAA Remote ID NPRM comment system. Please remember to not copy and paste and explain how this would affect you, and what you propose as a better solution if you have one. You can download the highlighted version I showed in my video here – This is the highlighted version of the NPRM i showed in the video. See DJI’s view on this Remote ID NPRM here – The view of DJI on this Remote ID business. It’s not what you expect.
