Do you want to know how to prevent your Mavic Remote DISCHARGING when using a phone with a low battery? I will show you an easy solution in this DJI Mavic Pro Quick tip video.

I often had problems with my phone discharging the Mavic Pro remote when the phone was low on battery. Many will say, why did you not charge your phone? Well, I didn’t and I guess many of you Android users have been in the same situation where you have to go fly by the end of the day and you have been abusing your phone during the day with little battery left. I have experienced to be reduced to only 1,5 battery because of that.

There are many opinions about that, and all sort of mumbo-jumbo solutions were rooting your android device is one of them? But don’t worry it’s not so complicated, you need Mavic Pro Remote, Power bank, 2x USB cables, and the Android Phone

First, you hook up the phone to the bottom USB port.
Next, you connect the power bank to the side of the remote.

In this way, you will run out of Mavic batteries long before your remote dies.

Viola, that’s it

Beginner Drone Pilot Mistakes – Are YOU guilty?

With the huge success of commercial drones like DJI Mavic Pro, many new pilots have entered the hobby with little or no experience in flying drones. Unfortunately, this means a lot of crashes too. Are you guys are doomed to make one of the beginner drone pilot mistakes covered in this video. Watch along and see if you are guilty in one of these common drone pilot mistakes?



Welcome to Drones & Electric Unicycles where we make weekly tutorials, provide tips and reviews to help you get the best out your equipment. Consider subscribing so you don’t miss out on the latest from us.


Most crashes are related to pilot mistakes either due to failed judgment or not knowing the expected behavior or limitation of your drone. Most will say that you need to read the manual before first flight. I can only recommend that doing that, by reading the manual you have a rough idea what your drone is capable of.

But let’s be realistic many pilots are not doing this. Watch this countdown of 9 drone pilot mistakes. If you can avoid these they might help you save your precious aircraft.

Even knowing the manual, will not help you when things start to go wrong. Remember in some cases you only have a fraction of a moment to react. This makes many drone pilots panic and acts irrational that will make them crash. The best thing is to avoid putting yourself in a situation where that put you under pressure.

Countdown: Beginner drone pilot mistakes
9. CSC – Combination Stick Command.
8. Unsuited flying conditions or environment
7. Disoriented
6. Not understanding RTH – Return to Home
5. Trusting the Sensors
4. Flying Backward
3. Flying batteries too low.
2. Returning Nose in
1. Indoor flying

Thank you and I hope to have contributions to make your drone flight a little bit safer and help you prevent potential crashes with this 9 drone pilot mistakes countdown.

— Disclaimer. —-

Not all pilots will crash their drones because of the mistakes in this video. This video does not cover all possible scenarios.
This video is primarily based on experience with Mavic Pro beginner mistakes, but would more or less apply to any other DJI product or like. Finally, the list does not cover crashes caused by electrical and mechanical errors. It’s made under the assumption you have a well-working aircraft with propellers intact etc.

Quickshot Mavic Footage – New Flight Modes

Includes: Quickshot Mavic Footage

During last weekend I had the chance to borrow DJI Spark to test and review. Review of DJI Spark will be up on the channel soon. Funny enough the QuickShot features was one of the things I really liked about the DJI Spark and with the latest firmware 01.04 DJI now makes it possible to make quick shots with Mavic Pro

Welcome to Drones & Electric Unicycles where we make weekly tips, tutorial reviews to help you get the best out of your drones and ewheels. If you are new around here, then consider subscribing so you don’t miss out on news like this.


The idea with Mavic Pro Quickshot is to make video clips with 10s of duration with rather complex camera movements. I have previously made tutorials that show how you can get some amazing footage by combining intelligent flight modes with stick commands.

These tips made it easier to get that amazing shot, it still requires some practice to get it right. With QuickShot this makes it even easier, you just frame your target and the Mavic will automatically take care of the complicated part. One the Quickshot has been completed it will return and you are now left with the 10s great looking footage. Almost sounds too great.

There are 3 modes available for
– Mavic Pro QuickShot mode: Dronie
– Mavic Pro QuickShot mode: Helix
– Mavic Pro QuickShot mode: Rocket

Before we shoot some Mavic Quickshot Footage, let me ask you a question? What to do think about this about 10s predefined intelligent flight modes?
What would other flight modes you like to see with the Mavic Pro?
Leave a comment below, don’t be shy as the best advice is often found among the comments from you in the Drones & Electric Unicycle community.

The way it works is you select Quickshot from the intelligent flight mode menu, and then you frame your subject with the green square, and then select the Quickshot mode, and press ok.

Let’s see the modes in action

1. Dronie

The aircraft will fly backward and upward, the camera constantly tracking the subject. Tap the dronie icon to check and set the flying distance before you press go. Make sure there are no obstacles behind your Mavic when it back away, as there are on sensors to save you from a collision.

2. Helix

The aircraft will fly backward while spiraling up around the subject. Tap the helix icon to check the flying distance before and set the direction before you press go. Again make sure there are no obstacles on the side of your Mavic, as there are no sensors on the side to save you from a collision

3. Rocket

The aircraft will ascend with the camera pointing downward at the subject. Again you can Tap the Rocket icon to check and set the flying distance before you press go.

Pretty cool don’t you think? The quickshot modes are known from Spark, that also has a 4th called circle. This is the in principle the same a POI, which could be the reason for `DJI leaking out of the options for Mavic.

You need to the latest firmware from DJI for your Mavic Pro and the DJI GO 4 App needs to be v4.1.10 for both Android and iOS

It getting from time to time a bit annoying with the frequent updates from DJI, but once I a while they really add value to the platform.
I think DJI is doing a great job supporting and improving their Mavic Platform to the benefit for all of us to make some great Mavic Quickshot Footage.
