Aircraft Aircraft Profile The Mavic Pro aircraft comprises of a flight controller, video downlink, propulsion system and an Intelligent Flight Battery. This section introduces the features of the flight controller, video downlink and other aircraft components. Flight Mode When the Forward Vision System is enabled and lighting conditions are sufficient, the maximum flight attitude angle is 16° with a maximum flight speed of 22 mph (36 kph). When forward obstacle sensing are disabled, the maximum flight attitude angle is 25° and the maximum flight speed is 36 mph (58 kph). The aircraft will revert to ATTI mode when GPS signal is weak, or when the compass experiences interference where the Vision System is unavailable. In ATTI mode, the aircraft is easily affected by its surroundings, which may result in horizontal shifting. In ATTI mode, the Vision System and some advanced features are disabled. Therefore, the aircraft cannot position or auto-brake in this mode. Please land in a safe place as soon as possible to avoid hazards. Avoid flying in areas where GPS signal is weak, or in confined spaces. The aircraft will otherwise be forced to enter ATTI mode, leading to a potential flight hazard. Note: P Mode requires larger stick movements to achieve high speeds. S-mode (Sport): The aircraft is using GPS for positioning. As Forward and Downward Vision Systems are disabled, the aircraft will not be able to sense and avoid obstacles when in Sport Mode. Ground Station and the Intelligent Flight functions are also not available in Sport Mode. Note: Aircraft responses are optimized for agility and speed making it more responsive to stick movements. The Forward Vision System is disabled in S-mode (Sport), which means the aircraft will not be able to automatically avoid obstacles on its route. The aircraft’s maximum speed and braking distance are significantly increased in S-mode (Sport). A minimum braking distance of 30 meters is required in windless conditions. Descending speed is significantly increased in S-mode (Sport). The aircraft’s responsiveness is significantly increased in S-mode (Sport), which means a small stick movement on the remote controller will translate into a large travel distance of the aircraft. Be vigilant and maintain adequate maneuvering space during flight. Use the Flight Mode switch to change the flight mode of the aircraft. © 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved. 11 Aircraft The following flight modes are available for Mavic Pro: P-mode (Positioning): P-mode works best when the GPS signal is strong. The aircraft utilizes the GPS and Forward and Downward Vision Systems to locate itself, automatically stabilize, and navigate between obstacles. Advanced features such as TapFly and ActiveTrack are enabled in this mode. Mavic Pro User Manual Flight Status Indicator The Mavic Pro has Front LEDs and Aircraft Status Indicator. The positions of these LEDs are shown in the figure below: Front LED Aircraft Status Indicator Aircraft Front LED The Front LEDs show the orientation of the aircraft. The Front LEDs glow solid red when the aircraft is turned on to indicate the front (or nose) of the aircraft (the Front LED can be turned off in the DJI GO 4 app).

Mavic Pro User Manual Return-to-Home (RTH) Return-to-Home (RTH) function brings the aircraft back to the last recorded Home Point. There are three types of RTH: Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH. This section describes these three scenarios in detail. Description GPS Home Point If a strong GPS signal was acquired before takeoff, the Home Point is the location from which the aircraft launched. The GPS signal strength is indicated by the GPS icon ( ). The aircraft status indicator will blink rapidly when the home point is recorded. Failsafe RTH If the Home Point was successfully recorded and the compass is functioning normally, Failsafe RTH will be automatically activated if the remote controller signal is lost for a specified amount of time (3 seconds when using the remote controller and 20 seconds when using Wi-Fi). Return-to-Home can be cancelled by the pilot, allowing them to regain control when the remote controller signal connection is reestablished. 1 Record Home Point 2 Confirming Home Point 3 Remote Controller Signal Lost × 4 Signal Lost for Extended Time × 5 RTH (adjustable altitude) × Height over HP>Failsafe Altitude Elevate to Failsafe Altitude Failsafe Altitude 6 Landing (after user confirmed landing) × Hovering at 2 meters above the Home Point Height over HP<=Failsafe Altitude Aircraft cannot return to the Home Point when the GPS signal is weak or unavailable. Aircraft will stop ascending and immediately return to the Home Point if you move the left stick in the aircraft reaches 20 meters (65 feet) altitudes or beyond during Failsafe. The aircraft cannot avoid obstruction during Failsafe RTH if Forward Vision System is disabled. It is important to set a suitable Failsafe altitude before each flight. Launch the DJI GO 4 app, enter “Camera” and tap to set the Failsafe Altitude. User cannot control the aircraft while it is ascending to its failsafe altitude. However, user can press RTH button to exit the ascent and regain control. © 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved. 13 Aircraft Aircraft can sense and avoid obstacles when Forward Vision System is enabled and the lighting conditions are sufficient. The aircraft will automatically climb to avoid an obstacle and fly to the Home Point at the new altitude. To ensure the aircraft returns home forwards, it cannot rotate or fly left and right during RTH while the Forward Vision System is enabled. Forward Vision System can be enabled during flight or RTH only. Mavic Pro User Manual Smart RTH Use the RTH button on the remote controller or tap the RTH button in the DJI GO 4 app and follow the onscreen instructions when GPS is available to initiate Smart RTH. The aircraft status indicator will blink to display the current status. The aircraft will sense and avoid obstacles on its flight path during Smart RTH. The aircraft may choose to navigate or hover in place to avoid collision. User can manually navigate the aircraft to avoid obstacles if the Forward Vision System is disabled or if light levels are low. The pilot can also immediately exit Smart RTH using the Flight Pause Button on the remote controller or by pressing the Stop icon in the DJI GO 4 app. Aircraft Landing Protection will activate during Smart RTH, Precision Landing and when using Auto Landing in the DJI GO 4 app: 1. When Landing Protection determines that the ground is suitable for landing, the Mavic Pro will land gently. 2. If Landing Protection determines that the ground is not suitable for landing, the Mavic Pro will hover and wait for pilot confirmation. 3. If Landing Protection is not operational, the DJI GO 4 app will display a landing prompt when the Mavic Pro descends below 0.5 meters. Pull down on the throttle or use the auto landing slider to land. Low Battery RTH The low battery level failsafe is triggered when the DJI Intelligent Flight Battery is depleted to a point that may affect the safe return of the aircraft. Users are advised to return home or land the aircraft immediately when prompted. The DJI GO 4 app will display a notice when a low battery warning is triggered. The aircraft will automatically return to the Home Point if no action is taken after a ten-second countdown. The user can cancel the RTH procedure by pressing the RTH button on the remote controller. The thresholds for these warnings are automatically determined based on the aircraft’s current altitude and distance from the Home Point. The aircraft will land automatically if the current battery level can only support the aircraft long enough to descend from its current altitude. The user can still use the remote controller to alter the aircraft’s orientation during the landing process. The Battery Level Indicator is displayed in the DJI GO 4 app, and is described below: Critical Low battery level warning (Red) Sufficient battery level (Green) Low battery level warning (Yellow) Power requires to return home Battery level Indicator 14 © 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved.

The colored zones and markers on the battery level indicator bar reflect the estimated remaining flight time. They are automatically adjusted according to the aircraft’s current location and status. Precision Landing The Mavic Pro automatically scans and attempts to match the terrain features underneath during Return to Home. When current terrain matches home point terrain, the Mavic will start landing immediately to achieve precision landing. The DJI GO 4 app will show a terrain feature mismatch prompt if matching fails. Precision Landing performance is subject to the following conditions: a. Home point is recorded upon take off, and cannot not be refreshed during flight. b. Aircraft must take off vertically. Take off altitude must be greater than 10 meters. c. Home point terrain features remain largely unchanged. d. Home point terrain with no distinctive features will affect the performance. e. Lighting conditions cannot be too light nor too dark. The following actions are available during landing: a. Pull throttle down to accelerate landing. b. Moving the control sticks in any other direction will stop Precision Landing. The Mavic Pro will descend vertically and Landing Protection will remain active. © 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved. 15 Mavic Pro User Manual RTH Safety Notices The aircraft cannot avoid obstructions during RTH when the Forward Vision System is disabled.

Using the Downward Vision System The Downward Vision System is activated automatically when the aircraft is turned on. No further action is required. The Downward Vision System is typically used in indoor environments where GPS is unavailable. Using the Downward Vision System, the aircraft can hover precisely even without GPS. Follow the steps below to use Downward Vision System: 1. Toggle the flight mode switch to P-mode. 2. Place the aircraft on a flat surface. Note that the Downward Vision System cannot work properly on surfaces without clear pattern variations. 3. Turn on the aircraft. The aircraft status indicator will flash green two times, which indicates the Downward Vision System is ready. Gently push the left stick up to lift off and the aircraft will hover in place. SPORT © 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved. 25 Mavic Pro User Manual Assisted Braking from Forward Vision System Powered by the Forward Vision System, the aircraft is able to actively brake when obstacles are detected in front. Forward and Downward Vision Systems work best when lighting is adequate and the obstacle is clearly marked or textured. The aircraft must fly at no more than 22mph (36kph) to allow sufficient braking distance. Aircraft The performance of the Forward and Downward Vision Systems are affected by the surface being flown over. Ultrasonic sensors may not be able to accurately measure distances when operating above sound-absorbing materials and the camera may not function correctly in suboptimal environments. The aircraft will switch from P-mode to Atti mode automatically if neither GPS nor Forward and Downward Vision Systems are available. Operate the aircraft with great caution in the following situations: Flying over monochrome surfaces (e.g. pure black, pure white, pure red, pure green). Flying over a highly reflective surfaces. Flying at high speeds of over 22mph (36kph) at 2 meters or over 11mph (18kph) 1 meter. Flying over water or transparent surfaces. Flying over moving surfaces or objects. Flying over inclined surfaces that will deflect sound waves away from the aircraft. Flying over small and fine objects (e.g. tree branches and power lines). Flying in an area where the lighting changes frequently or drastically. Flying over extremely dark (lux < 10) or bright (lux > 100,000) surfaces. Flying over surfaces that can absorb sound waves (e.g. thick carpet). Flying over surfaces without clear patterns or texture. Flying over surfaces with identical repeating patterns or textures (e.g. tiling). Keep sensors clean at all times. Dirt or other debris may adversely affect their effectiveness. The Downward Vision System is only effective when the aircraft is at altitudes of 0.3 to 13 meters. Forward and Downward Vision Systems may not function properly when the aircraft is flying over water. The Forward and Downward Vision System may not be able to recognize patterns on the ground in low light (less than 100lux). Do not use other ultrasonic devices with a frequency of 40KHz when Forward and Downward Vision Systems are in operation. Keep animals away from the aircraft when the Downward Vision System is activated. The sonar sensor emits high frequency sounds that are audible to some animals. 26 © 2017 DJI All Rights Reserved.
