DJI Mavic 2 crash test!




The new DJI Mavic 2 qudacopters are designed with omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, so just like other drones We Talk UAV tested, extensive crash tests were conducted to see how the Mavic 2 Zoom survives in real-world situations:

Obstacle avoidance test

Shortly after the obstacle avoidance test started, We Talk UAV found out that the side sensors only worked in tripod mode, which means the drone has to fly considerably slower than its average speed because tripod mode automatically caps the top speed of the drone to maximize stabilization.

For the most part, the obstacle avoidance sensors worked by stopping the drone whenever it got close to an object, but We Talk UAV managed to crash the drone once by flying left towards a tree. The DJI app displayed “braking now” and “obstacle on the left” before crashing. Once the drone hit the tree, the DJI app then displayed, “Aircraft has rolled over. Check for damage.”

Balloon and airsoft tests

Since flyaway balloons and airsoft guns are a real threat whenever kids are around, both were tested on the Mavic 2 Zoom. Even though balloons were thrown at the Mavic 2 Zoom and airsoft pellets struck the drone’s motors, the DJI quadcopter stayed hovering.

Pull test

A lanyard was used to pull the Mavic 2 Zoom, and surprisingly, the drone went back to where it first hovered once the lanyard was let loose.

Water test

The Mavic 2 Zoom was drenched in water using a water bottle, yet the drone kept flying and no problems were found.
