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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

Forward and Downward Vision System
The Mavic Pro is equipped with a Forward and Downward Vision System that constantly scans for
obstacles in front of it, allowing it to avoid collisions by going around, over or hovering. The downward Vision System uses ultrasound and image data to help the aircraft maintain its current position.
With the help of the Downward Vision System, your Mavic Pro can hover in place more precisely
and fly indoors or in other environments where a GPS signal is not available. The main components
of the Forward and Downward Vision System are located on the nose and the bottom of the aircraft;
they include [1] [2] four monocular sensors and [3] two ultrasonic sensors.

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.

Gimbal
Gimbal Profile
The 3-axis gimbal provides a steady platform for the attached camera, allowing you to capture clear,
stable images and video. The gimbal can tilt the camera within a 120˚ range.
30°
0°
Use the gimbal dial on the remote controller to control camera tilt, or go to Camera View in the DJI
GO 4 app, tap and hold on the screen until a blue circle appears, then drag the circle to control
the camera’s tilt.
The controllable range of the gimbal roll axis is 0° to 90°, enabling you to shoot in Landscape
Mode and Portrait Mode. The roll axis will rotate 90° when Portrait Mode is enabled.
It is recommended to use the Portrait Mode for taking photos instead of recording video. When
the aircraft is flown in ways that taxes the system, for example emergency braking or flying in
Sport Mode, the gimbal roll axis will reach its endpoint and cause the gimbal to vibrate.
Gimbal Operation Modes
Two gimbal operation modes are available. Switch between the different operation modes on the camera
settings page of the DJI GO 4 app. Note that your mobile device must be connected to the remote
controller for changes to take effect. Refer to the table below for details:
Follow Mode
The angle between the gimbal’s orientation and aircraft’s nose remains
constant at all times.
FPV Mode
The gimbal will synchronize with the movement of the aircraft to provide a
first-person perspective flying experience.
Remove the Gimbal Clamp before powering on the aircraft.
A gimbal motor error may occur in these situations:
(1) The aircraft is placed on uneven ground or the gimbal’s motion is obstructed.
(2) The gimbal has been subjected to excessive external force, such as a collision.
Take off from flat, open ground and protect the gimbal at all times.
Flying in heavy fog or clouds may make the gimbal wet, leading to temporary failure. The
gimbal will recover full functionality after it dries.
It is normal for the gimbal to beep upon initialization.
