Hello!

Would anyone know of a good drone repair service in Sheffield? I had a look on the web, but only nation-wide companies are coming up, and they don't fill me with confidence, would prefer not to send it off, if I can help it. I have a (broken) Mavic Pro. Any thoughts anyone?

Thanks!

Technically, it is a drone.... a drone operates (or can operate) independent and automated, while the DJI Mavic Pro can be flown manually, it also has auto flight, GPS flight and tracking functionality, which once set requires no further input from the user, thus being automated... This means, that it is technically a drone..

a QuadCopter is manual control only....

Hi, thanks for your responses. What's wrong with the drone: potentially a lot, it fell down from 75 feet up in the air. Where do you guys send off your drones, further afield?

Thanks

if it can fly to way points by itself as i would think it should be able to as older dji's can then yes maybe it could be classed as a form of drone but also most drones have wings also

no, by definition, a Drone is "a remote-controlled pilotless aircraft or missile."

so actually, regardless of automation or not, it's a drone

Depends on what 'drone' it is. Edit: I should really read a bit more closely... I would send it to an official DJI repair shop.


Ghozer... what are you looking to get into? I fly freestyle fpv quads so happy to answer any questions regarding quads..... (not drones... )
