    Folks,
    Has anyone determined if the Mavic has a 'programmable' ability, like the Phantom with the switch in the F position?

    It does come packed with all of the usual flight modes in DJI GO (plus some new flight modes). There is a flight mode switch on the side of the remote controller, but it appears to only have two positions.

    Per DJI reps, that switch is only for sport mode. All the intelligent flight modes, as mentioned above, are indeed there and look like they'll be accessed exclusively through the app

    Still a little unclear what the 5D button on the front does...I suppose it's possible that could be implemented

    Cool, where'd you find that?

    I'm confused by the wording. Is the 'button' a tiny d-pad (with different controls by pushing the edges of the button), or do you hold it down while using the stick in the appropriate direction to activate the actions?

    Pretty sure 5D = 4 directions + press

    "Check out the big brain on Brad!" .. Thank ya sir, not sure how I missed that, especially since I read that post a couple of days ago.

    If you zoom in, you can definitely see the stylizing on the button that indicates the ability to manipulate it. [​IMG]
