I flew my Mavic Pro in Bali quite often. There are not much of regulations to follow up on, therefore a lot of people fly their quadcopter there. So, I had to be a little careful not hitting another drone.
There was that one Asian guy right next to me flying also a DJI product – his drone was already beeping for like one minute when I was getting prepared. I went over to him asking where his quadcopter is because I was not able to see it. His answer: I do not know! He flew his quadcopter below the starting point and ignored the beeping sound of the empty battery…
I flew mine after talking to him and feeling sorry for the loss of his drone! Back in the hotel I was looking at the videos and was kind of shocked because I have a non-horizonal horizon in all my videos!
How to get rid of the non-horizontal horizon at the Mavic Pro
First, prepare the DJI for take-off – but do not do it!
Leave the quadcopter on a steady ground where it will not move. In the upper right corner, hit the three little dots (°°°). Click the Gimbal icon; it looks like a reverse camera. Now, we want to do two things. First, at the very bottom, there is a function called “Gimbal Auto Calibration”. Click it and do not move your quadcopter; the App is even telling you this!
In step two I want you to put the Mavic on a flat lever surface where you can see the horizon or something looking like a horizontal line. Make sure this line is in focus. Do the steps from part one again except now you hit “Adjust Gimbal”. Line up the horizontal line form the App with the actual horizon. You are all set now.
If you ever should get in trouble again with a non-horizontal horizon, get back here!
