I figured since DJI has pinned their firmware update to the top of the page it should at least have an accurate name. This is in the hopes that if we complain enough about what all of the admins are saying is a firmware bug and we need to roll back, hopefully it won't take too much longer than the already six months we've been waiting to get this fixed. I don't understand how they can keep that post pinned if it has known bugs.

Question. Both my Inspire 2 X7's had the landing gear issue where it would say "landing gear lowering/raising" about 15 times in repeat, then continue to give me "IMU Redundency Switch" errors. Once when I got the landing gear issue, I saw the drone dip hard to right and put the landing gear in full view of the X7. Other than that, I didn't notice it being any more unstable than it normally is. Still can't hold position when reverted .100, as expected, but I didn't notice it get worse with .200.

With all of that, other than the one dip, has anyone experienced anything with the .200 firmware you would consider dangerous? Do we have any answer from DJI if the faulty firmware with the landing gear can actually cause a problem if not reverted, or is it just going to be annoying and not cause any real problem? Same issue with the IMU switch warning. Has this actually caused anyone any issue that they've noticed other than the warning?

Yes, it's all true and it's confusing many of us. Just hold your horses and wait patiently for a fix, they're working on it.

As DJI engineers have found issues in .200, and DJI Support have said here in the forum that aircrafts with .200 should be downgraded to .100, I would downgrade. I don't think they would ask us to downgrade if it not was serious. However, there is an ambiguity about it, as they keep the .200 firmware online. If I got an IMU warning and saw my drone be affected of it - I would downgrade immediately.

Might have something to do with that all I 2's are not affected by the bugs. Booth our units do not have any issues with the 200 fw.

My Mavic pro to flies 10 times better than my inspire two. DJI has become a real joke. Too bad the joke is on everybody who’s ever purchased anything from them. And they laugh all the way to the bank.

Inspire 2 is going to be our new handheld camera and gimbal. That’s what I’m using it for now.

I just downgraded to .100 from .200
I have to say the flight characteristics of .100 are horrible, I forgot how bad with really twitchy responses  and not being smooth at position hold and stuff...  .200 was way smoother for flight character for me.

However .200 was unusable as the camera yaw would never 'get level' on time and any turns/banks would cause the horizon to drift.  I will saw that .100 I could at least "use" some of the footage, but flying it was way harder.

I hope they fix the bugs of .200, keep its really smooth flight profile, but hammer out the bugs.  maybe .300 will be a really nice firmware, I hope it is.....

Flew our Inspire 2 after updating DJI Go 4 to Version 4.3.3. Weather conditions were perfect. No wind. Shortly after take-off drone would not stop drifting and no error messages were coming up on the screen. The I2 collided with the brick façade of a nearby building and went down onto a concrete sidewalk. It is totaled. Reviewed flight records and see the following errors in the order listed.
Home Point Recorded, Landing Gear lowered, Gimbal Roll Reached Movement Limit, Gimbal Pitch Reached Movement Limit (we were not touching the gimbal), IMU Redundancy Switch, Gimbal Yaw Reached End Point, Satellite Positioning Off. Fly With Caution, Weak GPS signal, Obstacle Avoided, Motor obstructed, In Flight working compass encounters magnetic-field interference, please switch to atti mode if craft behave abnormally.
Has anyone experienced this? Could this be due to a firmware glitch?

Apparently GPS lock have been lost, causing the drone to enter Atti Mode and drifting with flight momentum at this time. Additionally compass readings were obstructed. This may happen in city environment with tall buildings in proximity. Good satellite count at the ground before take off is a must, yet it may change at any time.

Said that, your bird may be a victim of recent FW versions (.0100 or .0200) abnormalities. Your chance is to supply DJI with flight log for analysis.

Flight behavior was an issue immediately, yet from the flight record it appears GPS signal didn't enter weak territory until midway through the 30 second flight. I've emailed DJI to find out what our options are for repair/replacement. We've only had this drone since the end of August. Lost our last I2 from what appeared to be electromagnetic interference and a quick drop in GPS mid flight.   Both times we were flying near tall buildings, which is common to our business. Trying to determine if the I2 really isn't meant for these environments, or if we are experiencing complications mostly due to the firmware issues?

I don't think that such behaviour is Inspire's specific. At least twice my Phantom 4 Pro exhibit identical symptoms while operated within downtown environment. Steel high-rise structures, densely placed telecommunication devices etc. may - and will - interfere with GPS and compass mid-flight. That's why practicing ATTI mode flight may help in this high-risk scenario.

I think I've  been extremely fortunate to not have any issues people have complained about. I was a little too paranoid to upgrade to .200 but I did install the beta .201. I've only had two flights but so far everything works great. No issues at all.

Frank, I'm sorry but no, I don't have it. It may be available thru affiliates like Ed Tahoe or Mad_angler1, you must ask them for help. I have the luxury of waiting patiently for official FW release.

Well if there is a .201 Beta out there, that's good to hear. Hopefully it won't be too much longer before they release it and fix this mess.

I know I complain a lot about the firmware, but it's only because of how much I love the Inspire 2. It's such a shame to see it crippled because of bad firmware.

Is .201 just .100 with the addition of prores raw? Or is it a completely upgraded and new firmware?

The so called .201 firmware is a mysterious, unofficial version of .100 with ProRes RAW patch. It appeared on RC Groups forum. Definitely not a new, official, updated and polished version to replace .200.

That is incorrect. It's a modified, officially, version of .200 that is meant to address failures in .200.

I got the impression that it is essentially the .100 firmware with ProRes RAW added. But I could be wrong.

Soon AvatarAir responded in post #32:

"That is incorrect. It's a modified, officially, version of .200 that is meant to address failures in .200."

Officially modified? Officially available? Where? Only availability from within DJI Assistant software I will consider official. Sporadic, exclusive distribution among some circles close to DJI affiliates is not official. See what I mean? Endless speculations, guessing, rumours, missinformation, confusion, walking in circles in a complete darkness ... That's what it is, regarding .0200 firmware madness.

Keule, thank you for this link, I'm aware of it. This is not what I'm talking about. I'm not in desperate need to update or upgrade. My Inspire is behaving just fine on .0100, minor and occasional glitches aside.

I'm talking about misinformation distributed among these unfortunate pilots with infected and misbehaving Inspires.
