if you live in eu countries, you need to do this to fly more stability with fcc freq.

Which doesnt help at all, as the CE version lacks the FCC modul.

It helps FCC people, to use the FCC range in CE contries.

thE29, not completely true. Putting the CE model in FCC mode increases the transmitting power a litle bit, but not as much as in the FCC model. You see an increase of the range. There are youtubers that demonstrated with RF measuring devices, that this is true.

But you will never get the FCC range, as the remote lacks something.

How far did they come, compared to CE mode only?

In non-RF- polluted areas, like extraurban fields and beaches, 2.4 GHz provides 1.5-2km range. The problem is the city, where 2.4 GHz is generally useless. There the FCC hack is usefull, because it boosts a little the already very limited 5.8GHz range.

They shouldn't even be restricting their drones in the first place... It's not DJI's place to play the role of "drone police" - that's quite literally what you have the local authorities for.

Instead of actively policing drone operation (such as preventing drones from reaching a certain altitude), DJI should stick to passively policing drone operation, such as by maintaining the "Fly Safe" database, putting warnings in the respective (DJI) application (e.g. "By changing this setting, you may be violating local laws!") and by implementing ADS-B notifications (e.g. an in-application notification that aircraft may be approaching your location).

The only times DJI should be actively policing drone operation is when required by local laws (which at the time of writing, is rarely the case), or for "high profile" / especially dangerous geographic areas (e.g. the White House, most types of airports, military bases, etc).

For the record, my drone is "unrestricted" in the sense that it operates within FCC guidelines (i.e. my altitude is only restricted by what the FCC says I can fly to, etc...), despite being in Australia - but I still stand by my belief that in most cases, DJI should not be actively policing the operation of drones... Of course, this won't change anything and DJI will continue to actively police drone operation though.

You're a moron, the FCC is the Federal Communications Commission, an American agency that controls the radio spectrum in the US, it no jurisdiction here in Australia.

And it has no say over where you fly or how high, in the US that is the role of the FAA, the Federal Aviation Administration, again an American organisation which has no jurisdiction here in Australia. And is it the responsibility of DJI to control the levels of radio transmission, as their equipment has to comply with local laws in countries all over the world. This is why the aircraft itself determines the power transmission level.

And you will find that the CAA, who control civil aircraft operations in Australia, is quite happy to have DJI limit the ability to fly near airport control zones, because morons like you don't even know the laws, even less know what country you are in and should not be let out in charge of a drone anyway.

Says the guy that didn't even bother to read my post, nor have any understanding of how DJI products work outside of countries not covered by CE / FCC / SRRC standards... I spoke with DJI via e-mail and when a country is not covered by CE, FCC or SRRC certification, DJI products sold in said country will instead use equipment that conforms to either CE or FCC standards.

For Australia, that means 2.4GHz DJI products will meet the CE guidelines, and 5.8GHz DJI products will meet the FCC guidelines.

I understand that no everybody is competent with reading, so let me break down the rest of my post...

The only times DJI should be actively policing drone operation is when required by local laws (which at the time of writing, is rarely  the case), or for "high profile" / especially dangerous geographic  areas (e.g. the White House, most types of airports, military bases,  etc).

This is me saying that DJI should be placing restrictions on their products near airports... I know right - it's almost like I support their decision to block drones near airports, so that irresponsible idiots (like yourself, perhaps?) are not endangering the lives of everybody else!

As for me, I've never even been near an airport with a drone, let alone operated my drone near one... If hanging around airports is your thing, then I have no respect for you - but I know better.


And there is nothing in Australian legislation that compells DJI to place restrictions on their drones (since you're apparently such an expert on Australian legislation, please feel free to show me where I'm wrong...), however there is legislation on radio transmitters, which is not necessasarily related to restrictions being placed on drones.

There are only 5 options!
1. Apple +JB + Relocate.
2. The second phone with Android.
3. Device for substituting GPS coordinates on which it is possible to set certain coordinates.
4. Come to the FCC country and launch the drone there, then in the CE countries, launch the drone always with a device for jamming GPS signals, like a USB Flash, take off and only then connect the phone to the remote.
5. Buy DJI Fly Frida and the developer's signature to independently install the software on iOS, all this will cost about 150USD per year.

AltServer and 3uTools are all bull..., since you need to PC and do it every time and maximum in the second case for 7 days, it is much easier to do JB, especially at the moment Apple is defeated!

Which is a total confusion of what the FCC, the American authority who control radio licensing, and you in Australia, where the FCC has no jurisdiction, and control over altitude, which is not under the jurisdiction of the FCC. I rest my case.

Oh, my apologies - the village idiot couldn't work out what I meant because of an incorrect acronym... Anybody else would have realized what I meant, but you had to go and carry on, making a big scene of it.

Grow up.

Correction "for idiots in the room": My altitude is only restricted based on the FCC standards used by my controller, which means that I am able to rise to the same height as those in America, despite being in Australia.

You just keep digging your hole deeper: 'My altitude is only restricted based on the FCC standards used by my controller, which means that I am able to rise to the same height as those in America, despite being in Australia."

Your altitude is NOT restricted based on the FCC standards used in the controller, it has nothing to do with the controller, nor the FCC. The aircraft determines the altitude you can access, ind it is based on the geographical position of the aircraft. It knows it is in Australia and modifies the levels accordingly.

You sir, are a bonafide idiot.

It's primarily three things determine the maximum altitude and range of a drone:
  • Physical characteristics of the drone itself (i.e. the the power of the motor, the size of the propellers, the capacity of the battery, etc...);
  • Transmission power (i.e. how far the signal can be sent / received to and from the controller);
  • And restrictions (software or hardware based).

As previously indicated, the controller for the Mavic Mini sold in Australia is based on FCC standards (this was confirmed by DJI in an e-mail to me, and I have tested this in a remote area) - so this is where the "transmission power" factor comes in, and it limits how strong the radio signal going to and from the controller is... Your drone might be able to fly 100KMs down the road - but if your controller doesn't have the power to send and receive signals at such a distance, your drone is just going to turn around and come on "home".

I would have thought the other factors were obvious too... But apparently your knowledge of drones is, how shall I put it? Rather lacking.

Basically, more power motors, bigger propellers and other physical characteristics play a role in the capabilities of one's drone... You're not going to be able to fly a drone into space for example, because consumer drones simply do not have the physical characteristics to do this.

When it comes to restrictions, as far as we know DJI only uses software-based restrictions - the "Fly Safe" database is one such example (though not the only one), and DJI use this to "restrict" your drone (e.g. a limit of whether you can fly, how high you can fly, etc...) in certain areas.

Sighs.

But I'm done with your trolling.

I would have thought that someone who has spent as much time in these forums as yourself would have at least a basic understanding of how drones work... Apparently this is not the case and given your continuous stream of snide commentary, I'm not about to devote any more of my precious time to educating you.

Wow, that site is promising some pretty big boosts to the signal!

I'm not brave enough to muck around with it just yet, but maybe when I get my hands on a second drone, I might have a play and see how this works...

If anyone else is brave enough to try this though, be sure to let us know how you went.

You sir, are a bonafide idiot.

It's primarily three things determine the maximum altitude and range of a drone:

Yeah, I am done with you too, you don't have a clue about how the settings are done, or what organisation is responsible for them. The discussion here has nothing to do with the physical capabilities of the drone, with regard to its maximum operation ceiling, so why are you flapping your gums on that subject?

It is about how the system sets the power output and local flying rules. The answer is quite simple, when delivered to you, the only way the system sets those rules is to look at what country it is in when it is switched on, and it does that through the GPS receiver in the aircraft. As a result, the RC unit, which has no GPS receiver, is told what the applicable rules are.

And finally, just because I don't agree with you does not mean I am a troll, what a juvenile response. The reason you got a serve from me is because I am sick of dumb people coming here and giving half-arsed advice to people.

Which doesnt help at all, as the CE version lacks the FCC modul.

It helps FCC people, to use the FCC range in CE contries.

I'm using fpv system on my drone. so if my fpv system is CE model, it wouldn't give me FCC range even if I hacked it for FCC mode? I need to confirm this because I did hack it, and I got 8ch available but the range doesn't seem to be right.

Few times I even can't take off without fakegpsing my Mini. If one day DJI will restrict to switch to FCC in CE countries my Mini become piece of garbage because it fly not far when 50-100m in 2.4. Hope DJI will never do this because otherwise I have to switch to another brand...

You get a better range with the FCC hack and CE hardware. But nowhere near the FCC range. The remote is missing a hardware module.

I've been using the FCC modded app for iOS for a few months now for both the Mini 1 and the Air 2, it  really makes a difference. I just found this thread by mistake and it's amazing the prices I'm seeing here, 150$/year?! I just payed around 20€ for one full year with included apple signed certificate *and* free updates for that year, what gives?
