Crashed my Mavic Air, what are my options? :(


Hi chaps.

Long story short my drone decided to drift itself into a wall. Was hovering nicely and then just casually floated sideways at zero speed until it collected the workshop wall. All of this way indoors with no wind and no sign of interference.

Anyway, it’s managed to rip off one of the fold out (antenna?) legs. It’s second hand and no mavic care/refresh packages.

What are my options? I see replacement arms are available complete, but can they actually be installed easily?

Any recommendations gratefully received.

Check YouTube. Was looking the other day in relation to the Mavic Pro (curiosity, not need) and found some good instructional videos.


I did have a look, but couldn’t see anything about the arms for mavic airs :confused:

I’m tempted to just start taking it apart and having a look.

You’ve got nothing to lose at this point!

Or maybe just buy another used one? Or a crashed one for parts?

Front arm - not very “tutorial” - but one can see the important bits.

Full (41 mins!) teardown (in a foreign language) but visually very good to understand what goes where and pick the bits that you need.

Good for opening up the body. May be other things …


Thanks chaps.

I’ll try not to drop any tears into it while taking it apart :cry:
