Has anyone else noticed that you can now record audio whilst flying your mavic. Can this be toggled on and off?

I just realised when reading this , today just before taken off been asked for access to my phones mic, is this for recording commentary, will have to watch my P's & Q's , while I'm flying. Has anyone tried this out?

I got the message yesterday, didn't think much of it just accepted as I have no problem with DJI hearing me shouting.  Anyone know whats happening here?

It can be toggled on or off in the aircraft setting menu right below video cache. I tried that and found only video cache has audio recorded. You can hear the audio when accessing the video cache in the dji go app editor. But the audio seems not attaching in the original video files stored in the micro ad card as there is no mic in the aircraft.

Saw this as well. Assumed it was for voice on phone. Definitely did not add audio to video pulled off SD card.

I noticed this on a flight on my mavic yesterday too. I guess this opens up some handheld mavic videos with audio.. Guess there is a way to sync the audio back..  It's like an Osmavic now..

I got a surprise today when reviewing a cached file on my iPad and there was audio playing out!  I never knew this was an option before then.  I assume it's recording off the iPad's microphone which is far more useful than anything onboard the Mavic, so I can see times when this would be really useful, it's just a case of remembering to save off the associated cache files and sync them back up in the editing software.

I also see that now the copy of the video in my DJI app now has audio included too (audio is from my iPhone mic). It appears that the only way to get a copy of the video with the audio included is to save the video from the app to the camera roll on the iPhone, and then synch that copy of the video to your iCloud or to your computer.

Is it possible to export the video files from the Mavic with the sound?

No, you have to follow the method fans8c9bbf4a outlined above, and then re-align the cache files with your Mavic video files in some editing software.  I have found the durations don't match perfectly and the cache files are 30fps whilst the 4K video files were recording at 29.97.

The other slight complication is the cache files are named based on the date and time recorded so there's no link to the numeric file name of the original video file, but it's fairly straightforward to work out which files go with which based on their durations.

Well that answers my question. Good feature to have for live streaming and commentary on your flight. Glad you can toggle it on and off tho. Cheers

You always have the option to prevent the audio from being recorded from the phone in case you don't want your surroundings noices to be on your cache video. If you are using an iphone for example you can go to setting> Privacy>  Microphone  and disable the DJI GO 4 application.
