As I continue to discover minor issues with the DJI Mini 2 and/or DJI Fly app for IOS I will maintain this list continuedly and hope that DJI engineers pay attention. The list will at all times be based on latest Mini 2 firmware, DJI Fly app version and IOS version.  

Rev. date: 18-03-2021 (Latest share with support@dji.com 04-03-2021)
Latest verification test flight: 17-03-2021

App and Firmware versions:
DJI Fly IOS version: 1.3.1 (on Iphone 11)
Mini 2 firmware version: 02.00.1200
Flysafe database version: 01.00.01.19

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DJI Mini 2 issues:
  • No issues found at this point that can be solidly isolated to the drone :-)
  
DJI Fly app issues:
  • False error code: 120948 resulting in restricted altitude and distance (temp. solution log out and back in on DJI Fly app)
  • Do not remember the setting for Phone Charging. Implement OFF/ON/ALWAYS ON option
  • Chinese text on button in dialog box when lost connection during transfer in quick transfer mode “Failed to download certain files due…….”
  
DJI Mini 2 / DJI Fly app issues (potential integration issues)
  • AE lock does not lock WB. (this is important as you only want to have to hit one button before starting video recording)
  • 360 photo exif not correct (needs post processing before recognized as 360 photo)
  • AEB photos not automatically merged (need manual post processing/merging)
  • AEB mode sometimes only taking two pictures
  • Quick Transfer is very (overly) sensitive to interference (download speed down to 300 kb/s)
  
Nice (expected) to have:
  • Active track, the drone can do it so please enable it!
  • Spotlight function, the drone can do it so please enable it!
  • Ability to adjust max. speed and stick curve for all directions in all modes and as a minimum for CineSmooth mode
  • Ability to see shutter and ISO on main screen in photo auto mode (just like they are shown in manual mode)
  • Simi auto exposure mode where you can lock ISO or shutter while the other adapts automatically (like SLR camera do shutter and aperture setting)
  • D-Cinelike video setting

Turfolk.dk is a specialiced Danish website that deals with outdoor adventures. We use drone movies and images to document our adventures mainly for use on our website, Facebook and Instagram. Main reason for using the Mini 2 is the small form factor, low weight, wind robustness, capability to charge by portable solar panels and power bank feature of charging hub. We do not have the possibility to carry around one of the bigger and more advanced DJI drones and therefor heavily rely on advanced functions to be available on the DJI Mini 2.

What needs to be done to the 360 pano for it to be recognised?

Yes, Focus Track is certainly nice to have. Not sure if the Phone Charging setting is an 'issue' though.  DJI might have purposefully made it in the OFF position by default. You'd be surprised how many Android users are complaining that phone charging can't be switched off at all.

Not sure what the problem is but it needs post processing before showing correct at for example Facebook. I'm using nadirpatch.com for this.

Then the option OFF/ON/ALWAYS ON would be the right implementation.

When downloading photo and video from DJI fly app it appears double in by phone photo album (Auto Sync HD photos and Caching is disabled)

Not sure but Maybe check setting as the photos could be jpeg plus raw formats.  (Read somewhere else on a forum) is why you get two.

I have noticed, at times, when doing AEB it only takes 2 photos instead of 3 on the mini 2. Anyone else experience this?  Also, is there a way to tell which photos were taken with AEB because I see the numbers just go up consecutively making it difficult to differentiate when combining for HDR.

Please ADD, AE lock in manual mode, it belongs there instead of in automatic mode.
Ability to manage video settings in quickdronies like shooting in 2.7k 60fps.

Thanks Stephen, much appreciated but I think you need to continue to follow up with them as I see some of these issues in other posts and not being adressed.

This one you need to explain to me? In manual exposure mode AE is locked by definition so why do you want to add it. Unless naturally to lock WB but that does not happen with AE lock today anyway.

Just like the MP1, in automatic mode all things are auto set,
In manual mode, in my opion is to set everything I like, locking AE for taking a panorama is a must otherwise you get an overexpose panorama in the direction of the sun.
To get the perfect panorama is to turn the drone into the sun, set manually the exposure,  lock AE , turn into the direction where you want to start taking your panorama and shoot.

for a 360 photo to be properly recognized the resolution format should be 2:1 and the projection type property in the exif data set to equirectangular.

Do we know if the mini 2 is missing that?  Someone posted a week or so ago that his 360's were being accepted fine at street view.

they cannot without additional adjustments. the exif data is definitely missing, the resolution is fine. I always stitch them manually as i find the quality of the ones created by the app ridiculous...

But I believe that you can still use AE lock with the different panoramas. What I do is pointing the drone to the light setting I want, lock AE and do the pano with AE locked.

Only issue is that WB is not locked with AE lock and that is an error. It’s on the list.

I have tested with both Google and Facebook and they do not work until post processed. When looking at the exif details available on windows properties view I do not see find any change between the pictures.

End of investigation, DJI please fix it!

The option to charge your phone only works for IOS.  USB & USB C are persistent power passthrough which prevents disabling charging when connected.  IOS uses the lightning interface which has the ability to enable and disable charging while still connecting for data transfer in its design and does not require persistent power.

That's great but we still need the ability to turn it on and off permanently.

Maybe I'm slow but do we agree that:

a) In manual exposure mode you control both ISO and shutter speed and they will not change unless you change them.

b) In AE lock the ISO and shutter speed is locked to values when activated and will not change unless you deactivate AE lock

Given a and b it makes no sense to have AE lock in manual mode as the values is allready locked by you and will not change unless you change them or leave manual mode.

If DJI make the change to also lock WB with AE lock (as it should be) then it would make sense to have AE lock in manual mode as that would be a fast way of locking WB also in manual mode.

It is not possible and will never be possible to turn off charging programmatically in the DJI Fly app for USB or USB C cable.  It is both protocol and device specific.

The fact that DJI assistant2 does not work with the Mini2 is for me the biggest issue. Because there is no way to recover in case of FW upgrade issue
