DJI Matrice 210 series drone

The CAA has received six Mandatory Occurrence Reports in the last three months affecting the DJI Matrice 210 series drone. The reports have indicated that on each occasion the DJI M210 has malfunctioned resulting in rapid uncontrolled descent and consequent damage to the airframe upon impact with the ground. Reports suggest the issue may lie with one of the airframe’s motors. We are working with the manufacturer and monitoring the situation.

All users of the DJI M210 series are advised to consider their obligations under Art. 241 of the ANO and avoid flying over people or property until further notice.
