I feel your frustration with waiting.  However, coming from a background of developing Apps and custom software for Android phones I can tell you there is tons of coding to do to add just a few of the things everybody is expecting to see.  Then it has to be tested, corrected, retested and then finalized.  This is not a simple process.  If you'd like just decompile a simple App and look at the volume of coding required. I'm sure they don't desire to rush it out and have bugs or worse yet cause RC AC issues. Just saying, hard as it is we need to continue to try and be patient.

It's hard to get things 100% bug free. That's why most have continual development. It's not a simple process that is for sure. They gave us a timeline of late December and I think the most of us are being patient, with the exception of a few. I can understand both sides really. But agreed that being impatient isn't going to make it happen any quicker.

Personally, I am not holding my breath - either to when it will drop or as to what it will include.
Yes, there are many features I'd like to see incorporated into both the AC firmware and the DJIFly software, but I believe the update we all so eagerly await will more address current bugs rather than add new features.
Remember, because a feature is not included does not mean that the software has a bug. A bug is when an included feature is not working right. I am sure debugging the current firmware/software is what the DJI engineers are currently working on.
But then again - I may be pleasantly surprised!

Yes, no bugs this time would be appreciated...I will be happy to wait if that's guaranteed.

nothing worse than having to upgrade software on a device you get out of the box brand new.  impossible to avoid, i realize it is inevitable but all of us are unique in that we welcome new software and reap the benefits.  most people won't do it because they are either unaware or don't trust it (believe it takes away or breaks things).  product that has to upgrade out of the box means old stock to them.   i believe this drone will still let you fly but products that force you to upgrade before you can continue to use it, they suck.  

that being said, i like to get new software; the more, the better.  of course, with a group such as you find here on the forum, i let you guys update first and then report back.

If you don't update and you lose/crash your drone, then DJI will probably not admit any liability, even if it was a manufacture defect.  I too love updates and new things to try.

Most forced updates for drones revolve around safety issues .

Safety issues get high priority in getting fixed so that they don't lead to liability issues.  Just ask any corporate CFO and they will agree.

Extra lines at bottom - I think that is a thing of mavics codec VS decoder on your playback device...
I do have these "blurred lines" in the bottom if played back with Windows 10 video player, but the lines are not present in VLC...
The gimbal jerk has been discussed and more or less debunked in this thread
https://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=203908
- It is an understandable physical thing, that is impossible to be fixed with SW/FW update.

DJi should ASAP temporary change Authorization zones to Warning zones as a workaround until they release fixed firmware. At least in countries where is no legal reason to permit flying.

This is actually true. As soon as I read windows 10 player vs VLS, I tested and can confirm I do not have the blur in VLC but do in win 10. i've only flown one battery  worth so far and noticed that blur as soon as i played back. good call Gu5s.

I think I'd be looking at something to figure that one out. I have flown mine on several flights down to at least 20% without any kind of incident like that. Maybe I'm just lucky, I doubt it, but that makes me want to know where that problem lies.

I'm always surprised when I hear talk about bugs when they are really features that DJI never claimed the Mini would have (WB lock, AEB, RAW photo, d-cine like video color mode, and panoramas), especially when DJI makes a drone with those exact features. Sure you have to pay more but those features are available.

It's like, "hey, I only want to pay for ground beef but want Filet mignon".

Have a great Holiday everyone.

DJI advertised MM as EDC flycam with professional output appropriate for content creators. Absence of  WB, AEB, RAW  are bugs for this usage IMHO. I don't know what is expensive on WB,AEB and RAW that couldn't be in 399$ product. You forget that more expensive drones has much more features than WB, AEB and RAW like  obstacle sensors, more powerfull engine, better remote controll, ocusync, better photo sensor, zoom, better propellers, ...

You could have said that earlier. Ok, now I think everybody sell their mini and buy the spark...same price range, much more features.
@pnwflier : no sh*tstorm from me, you are totally right with your comparison ... by the way, I'll sell my mini too ... after 3 flights I noticed that video resolution is not 8k with 1500 fps as I expected and top speed only 47km/h not 470 km/h as I thought...too slow for me.

LOL, I kinda like your response, but I also get both sides. The pro's want something that's easy to travel with, but does a smidge more that what the mini is slated to do. For me it's perfect. The beginner drone. It was intended for me to learn the basics and grow from there. It fills that spot just right for me.
