DJI Mavic Pro Set-up Tips
Tip #1 Get a DJI Mavic Pro.
Sounds easy, but the DJI Mavic Pro is one of the most sort-after Drones in the world. If you are still hunting one out, you might want to try here:
- Direct from DJI, the online ordering process could not be simpler. Select the DJI Mavic Package rquired, pay by PayPal or Credit card and wait for delivery. Current delivery quoted as 3-7 days. Ordering direct could reduce hassle if a warranty issue arises.
- Amazon now stocking the DJI Mavic Pro drone. Next day delivery and the usual first class returns policy
- MAPLIN.co.uk Check on-line. BUT, if you call the order line and ask, people are having a delivery with in a few days! Of course, it will depend on stock. Some customers have reported delays in refunds when returning faulty drones.
Tip #2 Check it over!
It arrives, and the first thing you do is rip open the box, and start flying right? NO! Check the craft, controller, props and anything else over with a fine tooth comb.
You have spent hard earned money, there is no need to compromise on quality. Get what you have paid for. Check over the DJI Mavic Pro , if something does not look right. Send it back.

Tip #3 First Time Flyer? Get DJI Refresh
No one plans to crash their DJI Mavic Pro. To make life easier, DJI have launch the DJI RE-FRESH programme.
DJI Care Refresh is a service plan that provides you with peace of mind, covering damage to your DJI product. DJI Care Refresh is valid for 12 months and offers up to two full replacements at additional charge if accidental damage occurs to your product during normal use.
Each time you request a replacement, you’ll receive a replacement unit that is new or equivalent to new in performance and reliability.
You only have 48 hours to activate the Refresh programme from when the DJI Mavic Pro is first activated. After that, you can still get DJI Refresh as long as you film a verification video like this.
Tip #4 READ The Instructions.
Not many like to read the long, drawn out instructions. The DJI Mavic Pro is a simple craft to fly, but also can be complex. Remember, every action has an equal reaction. Reading the DJI User guide will prepare you for flying.
Understanding the settings, and what the Mavic will do will save you going into a tree when you least expect it.

Tip # 5 Beginner mode
There is no shame in flying like a beginner, and I recommend that first time flyers start slow and low. The Beginner setting on the DJI Mavic PRO will slow it down, and install a maximum flying distance of 30m from the home point.
Ultimate start-up Guide. Don’t crash the DJI Mavic Pro Drone. Take is slow, and always be learning. Always expect the unexpected, and fly safe. The DJI Mavic Pro is an incredible piece of engineering. Above all, enjoy your new purchase.
