You may find that from time to time you have an issue with your remote controller syncing with your DJI Mavic Pro. When you receive your quadcopter it should already be synced with the controller. In this tutorial, heliguy™ shows you how to successfully link the DJI Mavic Pro Controller with the Mavic aircraft.

How do I know if my remote is linked with the Mavic Pro aircraft?

The main symptom of an unlinked remote controller or mobile device is the flashing yellow light at the back of the craft.

What should I do before attempting to link the remote control to the aircraft?

  1. Ensure that all your devices are fully charged.
  2. Release the small flap on top of the Mavic’s remote controller and ensure that the mode is set to RC, not WiFi.Ensure Mavic Controller is set to RC mode
