To turn off your DJI drone controller, you can turn it off one of two ways. The first way is to press the power-on button once, wait a few seconds, and press it again, holding the button down for a few seconds. The screen should say ‘shutdown’ on the second press and then go black, showing you that the drone controller has turned off.
You should keep holding down until you see the shutdown message; usually, this takes roughly 3 seconds. It’s best to be aware of the timing to ensure that you turn the controller off successfully.
However, this isn’t the easiest of methods. Some users have issues and simply end up with their controller saying ‘connecting’ instead of shutting down. This can be a sign of a defect with the controller, but more commonly, it is because users are waiting too long between the first and second press. You need to be quite quick when doing this to ensure that the drone controller avoids any problems!
If you are struggling with this method, you can try the second option! Instead of waiting, you can press the power button and hold it for three seconds. You should see the shutdown message, and the screen will go black, meaning the controller is off.
The second method is easier to navigate and means that your controller is turned off quickly and easily. If you still struggle to turn the controller off this way, consult your user manual, and failing that customer service as there could be a fault with your controller.
How do I turn off the Mavic 2 drone?
To turn off your Mavic 2 drone, you will need to locate the power on/off button. Press the button and hold the button down. You should see an indicator light on; hold the button until the light turns off. Once the light is off, your drone will also be off.
It can take a few seconds for this to happen, so don’t be alarmed if you need to hold the button down for up to ten seconds. If it takes longer, we recommend taking your finger off the button, waiting a few seconds, and trying again to ensure there isn’t anything wrong with it.
Be sure to keep your finger on the button until the light turns off too. Taking it off means that you will need to start the whole process again! You shouldn’t spend too long doing this, but it’s better to be safe than spending your afternoon jabbing buttons!
If you run into any difficulty locating the button or turning it off, be sure to check your user manual. In it, there is a step-by-step guide with pictures that will walk you through turning the drone off. You probably won’t need this as it’s quite an easy process, but it’s handy to have!
