Awesome series! Well done. Enjoy the eclipse.

One thing I noticed and would love if you could confirm. When setting default to imperial for ft and mph, I noticed that RTH altitude still seems to be in meters. Can you confirm this?

Annoyingly, yes. Even with units set to Imperial, you set RTH altitude and max flight distance in meters.

Russell, thank you for this comprehensive and clearly explained series of posts on using the Mavic Pro. They are exactly what was needed for those of us who find text/photo tutorials more useful than some of the dubiously helpful YouTube videos available. I appreciate the time and effort you have put into this. Excellent work.

Let me be the first in 2018 to thank you for an excellent post on the Mavic. Your mention of a 5 hour equivalent narration could probably be doubled on my end since I’ve been running back and forth from the computer to my Mavic and checking all the settings!! I just finished reading all the related posts. Well done!

Thanks for a really useful walkthrough from a new owner. One question (which I don’t expect an answer too but others may comment) is if the android app is still unstable six months on?

You Sir, are a Gentleman & Scholar. I like you wanted to know the in’s & outs of my Mavic 2 Pro.
Thank you so much for all the time & hardwork put into this Handbook, my goto Bible for my 2Pro.
