The “Find My Drone” option can be found on the DJI Fly/DJI GO 4 app, which may be the first choice to help you get the opportunity to retrieve your drone. (Note that the option is not displayed on DJI Pilot 2, DJI Pilot, GS RTK, and GS Pro, but the last known coordinates can be obtained via the app, then enter latitude and longitude coordinates in Google Earth, Ovital Map or other map to locate your drone.)

 

If the aircraft is lost in a dangerous environment such as sea, mountain or cliff, etc., safety first! Please click Here to submit a flyaway case.

Using “Find My Drone” via the DJI Fly or DJI GO 4 app

DJI Fly

1. Go to “Find My Drone” interface in any of the following methods (For DJI Avata, it is required to connect the mobile device with the goggles by using a USB-C cable and launch DJI Fly on the mobile device):

Enter the Home screen, and tap “Profile > Find My Drone”.

 

Go to Camera View in DJI Fly, and tap “… > Safety > Find My Drone”.

 

After entering the “Find My Drone” interface, icons and buttons shown on the screen indicate as follows:

 

① Your current position;

②  Last location before the aircraft was flown away;

③ Aircraft coordinates (The coordinates finally recorded before the aircraft was flown away);

④ When the aircraft has remaining battery level and can be re-connected to the remote controller, tap “Start Flashing and Beeping”, and the aircraft will beep;

⑤ Tap to display the aircraft or mobile device location in the middle of the map;

⑥ Tap to switch the display direction of the map so that it is up north or the direction you are facing up;

⑦ Tap to select “Standard”, “Satellite”, or “Mixed” for map display;

⑧ Tap to check the image information when the aircraft was disconnected to help determine the aircraft location;

⑨ Tap to select the installed map software for route planning to find the drone.

 

2. Tap the “red arrow” icon (i.e., aircraft) to start looking for your drone.

3. Tap “User Other Maps” for route planning, and then find the aircraft based on the planned route.

When you approach to the aircraft, if the aircraft has remaining battery level and can be re-connected to the remote controller, tap “Start Flashing and Beeping”, and the aircraft will beep to help determine the aircraft location.

 

DJI GO 4

1. Enter the Home screen and tap “≡ > Find My Drone”.

 

 

After entering the “Find My Drone” interface, icons and buttons shown on the screen indicate as follows:

 

① Your current position;

② Last location before the aircraft was flyaway. Tap this icon to check the last coordinates recorded. When the aircraft has remaining battery level and can be re-connected to the remote controller, tap “Start Flashing and Beeping”, and the aircraft will beep and flash to help determine the aircraft orientation.

③ Tap to select “Standard”, “Satellite”, or “Mixed” for map display.

④ Compass mode: tap to lock the orientation. Ahead the current position is north to help determine the aircraft orientation.

⑤ Location: Tap to locate “Home Point” or “Aircraft”.

⑥ Tap to check the image information when the aircraft was disconnected to help determine the aircraft location.

 

2. Tap the “red arrow” icon (i.e., aircraft) to start looking for your drone.

3. Tap “User Other Maps” in the top right corner of the screen for route planning, and then find the aircraft based on the planned route. When you approach to the aircraft, if the aircraft has remaining battery level and can be re-connected to the remote controller, tap “Start Flashing and Beeping”, and the aircraft will beep and flash to help determine the aircraft orientation.

 

Find My Drone via the DJI Pilot 2, DJI Pilot, GS RTK, or GS Pro app 

Step 1: Obtain the coordinates recorded when the aircraft was flown away. 

DJI Pilot 2

1. Enter the Home screen, tap the icon in the top left corner of the screen to enter “Profile”.

 

2. Tap the synchronization icon in the upper right corner to synchronize all flight records. After synchronization, tap the corresponding flight records, and check the last coordinates recorded.

 

DJI Pilot

1. Enter the Home screen, tap “≡ > Flight Records > All > Start Synchronization”.

2. After synchronizing flight records, open the corresponding flight records.

3. Tap the progress bar icon right below the map view and drag the progress bar to the end, and then record the longitude and latitude coordinates at the upper left corner of the progress bar.

 

GS RTK

Go to Camera View in the GS RTK app, tap “… > Other Settings > Find Aircraft”, and tap it to generate flight coordinates.

 

GS Pro

1. Enter the Home screen, tap “My Missions” to view the flight mission when flyaway occurs.

2. Tap the gray icon to view the longitude and latitude when the aircraft was flown away.

 

Step 2: Import coordinates by using third-party map software to start finding your drone.

Using the “Ovital Map” app as an example:

Go to the app homepage, tap “Search > Lat-long > Enter longitude and latitude” to determine the location. Then, tap the navigation icon to generate a navigation path to start looking for your drone.

  

Tips

1. “Find My Drone” is to pinpoint the last know location (coordinates) of the drone, which is not used for real-time positioning. This will give you the flyaway drone’s exact location or, at least, vastly narrow down the area you need to search.

2. If the aircraft’s battery depletes, the aircraft cannot work (due to collision) or cannot be connected to the remote controller, the aircraft will be unable to flash or beep to help determine the aircraft position when you approach the aircraft.

3. If you find or retrieve your drone while the drone is damaged, please submit Online Repair Request and send the drone back to DJI for diagnosis.

4. If you cannot retrieve your aircraft, please refer to: Flyaway Tips: What to Do When Drone Flies Away
