Some of you guys might of seen on you tube that some folk have had issues with the altitude of this Air 2s.
Well I had been flying mine without this issue and got to say it is a fantastic drone. BUT yesterday while out with it mine did this too.
Now I’ve no idea as to why but the only thing different was that I was trying active track trace.
My own lack of attention to what the readings were on screen didn’t help but in my defence I was in a woodland area and was more watching the drone than the screen as it was following my daughter in-law.
I noticed that it didn’t bypass but it braked instead, checked it was set to bypass and it was. So I took control and flew it out into a clear open field with a path going by the side of it with a couple of small bushes and the odd small twiggy tree.
So I tried active track parallel. First it told me subject was to far away so fetched it closer, perfect, off we go… Then as she went behind a bush it lost her then found her again straight away, it then flew slightly behind her and nearly into a bush, it did avoid it and went round got her in view and locked on again then just set off flying towards her and boom straight into a twiggy tree. When I got home I checked on Air Data and after 13 mins of perfect no issue flying manual and active track I noticed the altitude had started to go down even though the Air had not. Then at the point of twig trimming it was -0.3 but at landing it thought it was at -47. I will admit I was watching the drone for unusual behaviour rather than checking the screen so had not noticed this displaying. I did land a took to the air again for a few mins to try FPV and Air data showed that altitude was showing correct again…
I have spoke to DJI on the phone and they told me to connect to my computer and refresh the firmware through the computer and then calibrate through the computer too. Done the refresh but after about 10 attempts this will not calibrate through computer screen. I use a laptop so wonder if that could be why it wont. Has anyone ever tried the DJI on screen calibration before?
I’m going to have to contact them again as that’s what their program says to do under the failed calibration.
Sorry for the long waffle, but thought it might help/warn anyone else who has this issue with the Air 2s
Oh and the Flight Data Center on the phone recorded altitude as 13m which is way out as I went approximately 80m high at times… Three previous flights over 2 days before were showing correct.
Could anyone tell me where i can buy some new propellers please?
