Overview
  • Aircraft Firmware: v02.00.0106
  • Remote Controller Firmware: v1.9.2.0
  • DJI GO 4 App iOS:V4.1.3
  • DJI GO 4 App Android:V4.1.2

What’s New
  • Updated No Fly Zone Management.
  • Added Gesture, Draw, Terrain Follow, and Tripod as Intelligent Flight Modes, as well as Trace and Profile sub-modes for ActiveTrack and a Free sub-mode for TapFly.
  • Optimized Smart Return to Home, added Landing Protection, and Precision Landing.
  • For increased safety, the flight is restricted to a height of 30 m and distance of 50 m when not connected or logged into the app during flight, including DJI GO and all apps compatible with DJI aircraft.

Notes
  • Make sure you restart both the aircraft and remote controller after updating them to the latest firmware. Otherwise, video downlink may be unstable. Re-link the aircraft with the remote controller if they are disconnected.
  • If you are updating via DJI GO 4, make sure you update the aircraft but only after restarting the updated remote controller. Otherwise, there will be an error in the progress bar of the aircraft update.
  • Please note that firmware update may reset various Main Controller Settings, such as the RTH Altitude and Maximum Flight Distance, to factory defaults. Before the update, take note of your preferred DJI GO settings, and readjust them after the update to suit your preference.
  • Requires the DJI GO 4 app v4.1.0 or later, otherwise the flight will be restricted to a height of 30 m and distance of 50 m.

Does this fix the APP crashing issue on Android?  Specifically the Nvidia Shield tablet?

I hope that battery firmware is now aligned with the P4P too.
Thanks finally, DJI

I'm on the Beta Firmware and both DJI Assistant 2 and DJI GO 4 are both telling me I'm on the latest firmware already although  the RC did update to Version 1.9.2

Well that update has screwed with my gear. Updated which took a while. Update got to 99% then gave me a message to disconnect cable and reconnect. Dumb or not I followed the instructions. Now my controller flashes red and green and the aircraft connects and disconnects. I am abroad and can't do anything about it until I get home where I have a pc. I get updates are important but some more flexibility is needed I shouldn't be forced to do it in order to fly. What a lot of crap

New flight modes seem to work.  Landings are smoother so far.  TapFly is updated and more accurate and informative.  Tripod works well.  Have not tried Terrain follow or Gestures.

Means you need a controller update.  Follow red status area to do this...then power both down and restart.

The terrain follow worked great for me when flying on a sunny Day

Thanks for the suggestion Sofus. Tried that still no difference. Also paired the rc again. No difference. Don't think the controller has taken the update. Not sure what to do now

Did it through Assistant 2 via the USB.  Went okay.  Decided to do a VPS calibration too which went okay.

Went outside to do both a IMU and Compass calibration.  Got "Weak Signal" notice on iPad Air 2.  Noticed the RC's normally green LED was blinking red and green fast.  Might need a re-linking?

Went inside to do a relink which failed.  Still blinking red and green fast on the RC.

Restarted RC and GO 4 and saw a new red "Update firmware" notice in GO 4.  It updated the RC 1.8.0 to 1.9.3 and I got a green LED back, but it pops up a new error about C1 when it starts as in the photo below.

Tried a re-link and got a solid green so I assume the RC and P4 is linked again with 1.9.3, but the C1 notice is bugging me.  Fwiw, there is no C1 app in the Apple Store so it must be a bug in GO 4 (Current version.).  May have to delete GO 4 and reinstall.  Dunno.

Added:
Required an IMU adjsutment too.  It does it on SIX sides now on the P4.  Whole new way of doing it.  Before was just sitting still upright, now it rests on all four sides and top too.  Might help with the gimbal tilt - maybe.

C1 Error in GO 4

Thank you DJI...

Ability to turn off Geo has disappeared, but 'Unlocking List' has appeared in General Settings menu.

Landing protection and Precision landing have come to fruition along with 'Draw', 'Gesture', 'Tripod', 'Terrain Follow'.

Smart Return to Home can still be disabled.

And in 'Main Controller Settings'/'Advanced Settings' CSC (Motor Cut Off) can be disabled so motors cannot be cut off in flight (I'll let somebody else test that one out) along with 'ESC Beeping' which makes a lot of noise, which would help when flying close to others or if landed in long grass.

Completed calibrations of Sensor, IMU (New procedure, I think I can dump the spirit level now), Gimbal, Compass & RC Sticks.

Basic functional test looks OK, seems nice and stable at low level (a bit of a breeze here tested it reasonably well).


Checked against my 'artifitial horizon' (back wall in garden) and level looks good, Gimbal can be seen running through what I presume is a levelling routine during startup.








Off to calibrate now

I did the update of the P4 and transmitter, then calibrated the cameras and IMU, After that I did a short flight just in the backyard, hovered 1 meter over ground and did a flight test, and everything looks normal. Will go out in the field later this weekend.

I am currently abroad but having the same issue. What a mess at least I got the majority of the footage I wanted. Need to wait until I get back to try a firmware rollback.

Why do you say we can dump the spirit level? I've done the update; was going to wait for the cold of morning and head for the straightest surface in the house with my spriti level.

I've been using the same firmware for the last year.  Why would I want to update my perfectly working firmware just because when I start the DJI App it says Firmware Update Required?  Why would I want to limit my height to 30 m and distance to 50 m?  A friend has a phantom also, he did the firmware update and now his video don't work anymore!  Doesn't anyone from DJI test this firmware before they start shoving it down peoples throat's?  I'll just keep on flying with what I have!

After several months of reading tales of woe here on the Forum,   I am hesitant about performing this upgrade until I hear a few more success stories, and no reports of catastrophic failure.
Currently flying a Standard Phantom 4 using the DJI Go4 App version 4.1.0 on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8" with Android version 7.0 (Nougat).
I keep Airplane mode ON (Wifi OFF) in order to maintain the status quo, which is:   I have to clear the defaults for the DJI Go App before the RC will connect to the tablet.  Sometimes this works immediately, others it takes several goes and about five minutes of fiddling about to get it working.  After that, everything works brilliantly (occasional mid-flight App crashes which are quickly recovered from notwithstanding).  Bottom line:   Any re-assurances that this latest update will fix anything?   I'm inclined to do nothing for the time being, adopting a "wait and see" policy.

Well it uses the same routine (I believe) as the Mavic. Did a quick check on my computer desk with iPhone, then ran through the new (For P4) IMU calibration. The one where it involves sitting on its feet normally, then tilted to each of the four sides so resting on arms, then finally with it upside down

I did a test hover out back, and very stable, and as I say horizon looked spot on. Time will tell and one or two longer flights needed to fully test though. But initial impressions are good.

P.S I updated aircraft using Assistant 2, then RC which was an OTA update, then restarted all.
