The DJI Mavic Air 2 quadrocopter crash of a new drone without established reasons on the fifth flight.
The DJI Mavic Air 2 drone suddenly disconnected and crashed while returning to the starting point. The flight time was about twenty minutes, until the full discharge was about ten minutes.
The DJI Mavic Air 2 drone, at an altitude of about sixty meters, suddenly switched off and fell on the field.
Mavik observed the fall visually, managed to detect the direction and target of the fall. After two hours of searching in the winter quadric was found. The battery, contrary to expectations, was in place and not lying next to the drone.
It was assumed that after the fall, the Mavic’s battery popped out of the landing slot and therefore it was impossible to turn on the light and sound alarm to help find the drone.
However, the battery of the Mavic DJI 2 was in place but the LEDs were turned off.
What manipulations preceded the fall of Mavic? The drone was at an altitude of about one hundred and twenty meters and at a distance of about one hundred meters from the starting point. There were no messages about an emergency, about an underestimated supply voltage, and so on. Drone Mavic 2 was in normal operating mode.
Since there were more than ten minutes of flight time left, it was decided to test the landing of the Mavik on a meter-by-meter landing pad. The Mavic is not an old-style drone with long landing arms. When trying to land this drone on the arm, there was a danger of getting the screws on the arm. the drone’s grip on the hull was inconvenient.
At the same time, with the sticks he gave the command to Mavik to descend, the final height of forty meters was meant. Then bring the Mavic 2 Air closer and visually plant it on the site.
The flight took place in April, at an air temperature of +12, with a weak wind.
The stick pressed down and began to visually observe how Mavic went down. Then he released the stick, but instead of stopping, Mavik accelerated and began to fall. Everything.
The reasons for the fall of the new Mavic are not clear. No amount of remote manipulation can turn off the power of the drone in flight. When the battery charge was low, the drone’s intelligent system was obliged to smoothly land the drone, preventing it from falling.
The only logical explanation for what happened is an emergency catastrophic drop in the battery capacity of the DJI Mavic Air 2 drone.
A similar fall was observed in the old Phantom drone. When it’s cold +2, with a battery three-quarters discharged, I tried to raise an old Fantom 3 drone
It collapsed without warning. The automatic landing system when the battery is discharged simply could not work — the battery did not have enough energy.
But that was the old four-year-old Phantom and here the new DJI Mavic Air 2 crashed on the fifth flight in the first month after purchase.
Then the most interesting thing happened. The official DJI service center in Ukraine reported that the logs are not readable, for some reason they were overwritten. In the conversation, it sounded that the logs totaled about fifteen entries.
Where the fifteen flight logs of the DJI Mavic Air 2 came from during the actual fifth flight is unknown.
In China, where the drone was sent to the factory from the service center, referring to the overwritten logs, they did not understand the reasons why the new DJI Mavic Air 2 fell.
The DJI Mavic Air 2 log overwritten report has raised the following suspicion that the DJI Mavic Air 2 is using either faulty batteries or faulty processors or memory.
What are the conclusions from the fall of the new DJI Mavic Air 2?
The first conclusion — no one wanted to find out why the drone actually fell. But without finding out the reasons for the fall of the DJI Mavic Air 2, the situation may repeat not only with this particular drone, but also with any other drone of the DJI family.
A drone can fall not only in an open field, as happened with me, but also in a city, and it can fall on someone’s head.
A half-kilogram brick from a height of one hundred to two hundred or three hundred meters can not only damage a car or other valuable object, but also kill a person.
The second conclusion is that there is no trust in DJI Mavic Air 2 and DJI corporation. How to launch a drone over a city now if it can fall for no reason?
What’s the point of buying a DJI Mavic Air 2 drone if it can fail at any time?
If the plane falls, then a special commission investigates its fall and death of people and draws conclusions according to which the technical processes at the plant are corrected, during the training of pilots. when servicing.
Why didn’t DJI look for the true reasons behind the crash of the new DJI Mavic Air 2?
Who will be to blame if you trust DJI products and you fly a DJI Mavic Air 2 and it will kill a person as a result of refusal?
The reasons for the fall of the new DJI Mavic Air 2 drone have not been established and the manufacturer did not want to look for them.
This is a very dangerous situation.
If you have lost a DJI Mavic series drone in similar situations, write to me by e-mail email@example.com , I am sure that sudden DJI drone crashes are not an isolated case, and the manufacturer is silent about technological process errors.
DJI service centers were either instructed to hush up the situation or do not have the technical ability to investigate the causes of the sudden crash of DJI drones.
