While the Mavic MINI is easy to fly out of the box, every newbie pilot should watch these tutorials. They will learn them not just to use different QuickShots modes but also how to safely take-off and land. My plan is also to share here undocumented tips and tricks.
Mavic Mini video tutorials
From learning to fly your DJI Mavic Mini to calibrating, how to pack the Mini’s case, removing the gimbal protector and from Quickshot modes to fail-safe RTH, we have it all! There will be also demonstrations on downloading and upgrading firmware and attaching propeller guards.
How To Fly with Mavic Mini
The video bellow will show you the initial steps which must be done before take-off. Firstly, explains how to prepare the remote (antenna unfolding, sticks and mobile phone attaching), than goes trough the aircraft preparation (unfoding arms, removing gimbal protector and loading the battery). The second part of the video will explain the basic flight movements and how to use the return to home feature.
Understanding QuickShot Dronie (Selfie) mode
“Dronie” mode allows to take aerial Selfies easily. Configuration of this QuckShoot mode is very simple, you just need to adjust distance and were the camera should point.
QuickShot Rocket mode tutorial
For “Rocket” mode, just like in case of Dronie mode you need to set up two parameters, max altitude and focus zone. The main difference between these two QuickShots modes is that the aircraft will go straight up instead of horizontally.
QuickShot Circle (Orbit mode) guide
Circle mode is a quite basic feature. Being used by many other drones, you are probably already familiarized with it. For this mode, you need to set up 3 things: radius, direction and focus zone.
How to Update your Mavic Mini’s firmware
It is essential to always use the latest firmware available. Updates brings not just new futures but also eliminates bugs from the older version. The video bellow is a step-by-step guide how to perform firmware upgrade on the Mavic Mini.
Propeller guard installation guide
This video was made by FirstQuadcopter, and shows you how to attach correctly the blade protectors without bending the sensitive propellers.
How to replace propellers on Mavic Mini
In case that one or more are damaged, cracked, distorted or the screws become loose, you should immediately replace the propellers. Each pair of spare props comes with its own set of screws. The video bellow shows you how to remove the old damaged props and install the new one. As tool you will need only a tiny Philips screwdriver.
