Does the Mavic 2 Pro Have Tripod Mode (T-Mode)?


This question came to me recently when I was flying with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro+, which had a much more accessible intelligent flight mode, Tripod Mode. It is useful when you need the highest precision and / or peace of mind with your unmanned aerial vehicle.

It was also available on DJI Spark, Mavic Pro, Mavic Air, Phantom 4, Phantom 4 Pro, Phantom 4 Advanced and now on the Mavic 2 Pro! Here is how you get it activated:


Android: In order to enable Tripod Mode you must have your device connected to your controller and your Mavic 2 Pro on as well. You basically need to be ready to takeoff.

IOS: It appears you can enable the extra modes without the controller OR drone turned on.


  1. You must first enable “Enable Intelligent Flight Modes” (on Android) OR “Multiple Flight Modes” (on IOS) before attempting to enable this feature with the controller, which can be found in the “Main Controller Settings” section of the DJI Go app, which is located at the top and looks like a drone.
  2. Then you want to slide the switch on the right side of the drone controller to the “T” option.
  3. Now your drone is slowing down to about 1 meter per second (or 2.2 mph and trying to keep the camera very still. It worked well for me when I recently made a YouTube video where I came across a roundabout that didn't like Tesla Autopilot!

Turning off Tripod Mode

If you need to do your work somewhere in the blink of an eye, switch it back to Program “P” or Sport “S.” I believe that returning home can override the slowness of the tripod.

Now you can flip the switch over to “T” and you should see the message in the screenshot indicating Tripod Mode has been enabled.

Mavic Mini

At present, the Mavic Mini does not offer this handy feature. It seems to be an option reserved by DJI Global for its midsize and upper-tier aerial crafts.
