Fixed wing looks interesting

I agree. Being able to choose and maintain a constant (sub-maximum) speed without having to hold the throttle at just the right place sounds like a nice feature. But after the past couple of firmware releases I'm going to wait a little while and let other folks figure out what surprises were included in this one.

See what I mean, Bunny? I always consider it a bad sign when they have to include a disclaimer like this one:

"If the firmware upgrade fails, restart aircraft, remote controller and DJI GO 4, and retry. "

the aircraft will fly forward automatically at a certain speed after entering Fixed-Wing Mode. Push the left
stick up to ascend and down to descend. Push either stick left or right to rotate the aircraft. Pushing the
right stick up will accelerate and pushing down will exit Fixed-Wing Mode.
In the DJI GO 4 app, tap the icon
and enable Fixed-Wing Mode. Push the right stick up until the C1
icon appears, then press the C1 button on the remote controller to enter Fixed-Wing Mode. Push the right
stick down or press the C2 button on the remote controller to exit Fixed-Wing Mode.

That warning seems to be included in all the recent firmware releases.  It makes sense since the one time I had an upgrade hang, restarting was all it took to get around the problem.

I know. I've experienced it too, and it concerns me that even something as basic as upgrading the firmware isn't reliable. It's not like Android devices or PCs where there's a lot of customization and a variety of hardware vendors: firmware upgrades should just work.

And every time I see the "Rinse. Repeat." instruction, it reminds me of the disclaimers at the end of those prescription drug commercials that inevitably end with the narrator saying something like, "Discontinue use of [medication] if you experience any of the following symptoms: dizziness, nausea, vomiting, blindness, paralysis, death, . . ."

The DJI GO4 app on the play store shows that it is updated as of today (4/11) but there is no release notes or version number for the app.  I wonder if the android crashing issues have been addressed.

I'm guessing not fixed since it was / is a high-profile problem and there's no mention of it in the release notes . . . but that's just speculation on my part.

Did you notice this one? It sounds to me like it might be the RTH-from-an-NFZ you mentioned wanting not long ago:

"Optimized No-Fly Zone Return to Home and unlocking function"

I am hoping it will fix the auto landing/ not able to abort situation.

Well, Ken said it would be, so hopefully that's the case despite the lack of mention in the release notes.

Where could the 'fixed wing' option be used and why?  Not fully understanding why they came up with this.

You want to keep the quad flying at a constant speed, like a "cruise control" in your car.

Vehicle maintains constant, predefined speed without having to maintain your foot on the pedal (finger on the stick).

It is on page 22 of the new manual, it is for smoother filming I believe.

Fixed wing sounds pretty cool. There have been times where I just need to fly straight for a while, but need to mess with my tablet screen, so I have to let off the sticks. This solves that issue

Yes, ideally the upgrades should be rock solid. It's a bit more tricky since there are a lot of moving parts involved in the upgrade. I am always nervous that the upgrade my brick the Mavic but fortunately, this seems to be very rare.

Is crashing common on DJI-approved devices? I'm not seeing that, myself, but I'm on iOS which is easier to keep track of.

I've seen a lot of android users saying they are having problems with the app crashing. I've even seen a few that either made the ful switch to apple or buy a ipad mini just for their drone (nice move apple lol).

I have both a Samsung Galaxy S5 (recommended device) and a S7.  The app crashes constantly on both.  Me and 1,840 others in the Google Play store.
