New:
Maintenance battery
Return to home or land promptly if a prompt appears in the goggles that the Intelligent Flight Battery requires maintenance,

1. Fully charge the battery.
2. Leave the battery for 24 hours.
3. Insert the battery in the aircraft and hover at an altitude of up to 2 m after takeoff. When the battery reaches
20%, land the aircraft and power off and remove the battery.
4. Leave the battery for 6 hours.
5. Maintenance should now be complete and the battery is ready to use. Repeat the steps above if the
maintenance prompt continues to appear in the goggles.

update worked fine for me directly from dji fly app (iOS) first time - took a while, and yeah have to remember to do batteries and motion controller.

seems to feel pretty similar to me in all modes N/S/M
(k, it was a bit windy, but I didnt notice any apprecible change in flying characteristics  - as hinted at in release notes)

I like the new subtitles on the google sdcard - just like the air unit
the bitrate is really useful - though odd srt is missing other fields  (eg. flight time)


but honestly... we have waited 3 months for a firmware update, and its a pretty lack lustre one.
lots of suggestions have been passed on to the devs, and we seem to have got none of them....
e.g. I like the subtitle option, but I find it hard to believe this was a much requested feature.

things like pid tuning, rate profiles, ability to alter C2 gimbal angles... are all common requests,
yet none have been delivered.

dont get me wrong firmware updates are always appreciated... and if this had turned up a couple of weeks after release, that would have been cool,
but we are talking 3 months... on a brand new product, and we see minimal improvements.

What does "optimized flight safety" mean? Does that fix the corrupt DB bricking the drone problem?
And I guess the activation and "connect to phone number" bugs aren't fixed?

it warns you to check your props are on the right way

someone hinted there could be speed restrictions (50kmh) in some countries for N/S mode, but didnt apply here in Spain (so CE zone) ... still could do same as before.

dont know about activation, as mine was alraedy activated.

I did an update flysafe db at the same time, and it worked fine - ymmv

Any improvements in PID performance in manual mode? That's the only reason I'd even apply the update, is if the tune in manual is better. Nothing else in the update is anything I need, so I'll skip it if manual mode still flies wobbly and drifty. It wouldn't be worth risking bricking my drone unless the tune is actually improved.
As for the update being almost featureless after 3 months, that's just par for the course. I've been a DJI customer since about 2013/14, though that may now be at an end going forward. In all that time, to my knowledge DJI has never updated anything in response to actual customer feedback and/or complaints. I've never seen them fix or implement anything that customers have asked for. Their updates are virtually always driven by something else, probably marketing or something. They always have little fixes to stuff nobody's ever heard of and the major problems affecting existing customers go unfixed for literally years.

So we should be happy that there was an update at all and just take what we can get. But like I said, I'll hold off until I see reports that show it's any better than the old FW....

I didn't really notice any change... and did have some oscillations/shakes at some point, in same way as before.

that said it was pretty windy, so not great conditions to see if its was generally smoother - perhaps when its calmer, it'll feel a bit better.

I think generally, they have only made very minor tweaks for this release,  probably just bug fixes - so it feels pretty safe to update.

I went ahead and updated one of my drones, but left the other with the old FW on it.

The metric/imperial setting is broken. There's two strange metric settings now in the menu and selecting imperial doesn't work. Everything is permanently in Metric now and you can't enable imperial units.

I'll try a flight this afternoon after work and see if there are any noticeable changes in flight...

Well, in the wind is where you'd notice it if they had tightened up the tune. It should wobble and bobble less in the wind (and just in general).

I'm anxious to see if any improvement in the drift in manual mode has been made, it's pretty bad. But that may be too much to hope for.

I'm going to go fly mine today after work and see if there's any difference.....

C2 start/stop motors is no doubt a useful thing, but why not let arm the  drone when C2 is in the middle and  stop on either side? On my other quads i do that with 3pos rocker and find it safer since i can instantly disarm whichever way i rock the switch to full stop.

At the field now. After two packs I notice a slight improvement in stability in manual mode; might just be placebo but it does seem a little tighter especially at high speeds. Maybe a little stiffer too?

The motors are SMOKING hot after a flight now. can’t hold fingers on them for more than a few seconds.

So they definitely cranked up something. probably the P and D terms.

I’ll take hot motors over uncontrollable over half stick any day of the week. So not worried about the hot motors. At least nothing is burning.

Drift isn’t fixed, so that’s probably not firmware.

Going to fly more packs and see. It still is pretty wobbly and woobly but I don’t think it’s as bad…

Hello !!

In M mode (the only one I use) the drone now flies much better than before. After 3 batteries the engines are not hot at all and I also did some freestyle.

Sure it doesn't fly like my 5-inch Kiss builds but it's a really good drone now compared to before.

This is my first FPV drone and I fell in love with manual flying but I'm still very new to all this. Could you explain what exactly is this new feature you requested, why it's important, and when and how should I use it to be safer?

good to see others think it feels a bit better..

I got to fly it in better conditions today...
I do think overall it is a bit smoother (in M mode), and I seemed be more confident and pushing it a bit more - so I think its probably being a bit more predictabe (to me), so thats all a good sign.

that said, not perfect, a couple of times in the flights, I did get quite a bit of prop wash (as previously),  but perhaps thats inevitable given its weight and motors,  and its certainly something i can fly around.

it'll be interesting look at the footage, see if that looks more stable - as there were complaints from some that the oscillations were making it difficult to use the video footage.

motors were quite warm, about what you'd expect (id not call them hot, as you could hold them easily)
I'd say they could go a tad more aggressive still but I guess DJI will play it a bit conservative, to account for differences in condition of props etc.


so as Max said, its not as stable as my 5" - but its feeling good in its own right, and combined with its solid RTH and decent battery... its a great drone to fly.

Agree about the propwash. It's still really bad, but I did notice yesterday that it's responding more aggressively to it when it does get into PW. So overall I think DJI did a good job on the PIDs with what they have to work with. At its weight and being kind of bulky and slightly underpowered, it flies pretty good now, IMO....

Hello !!

In my opinion now for the use for which this drone was created and that is cinematic cruise flight now we can say that the drone flies well.

Now I use it to do mid range because the RTH and safety system are definitely superior to my 7 inches.

By adjusting the rates and being sweet in the controls some stunts can be done by limiting the propwash ... clearly if I want to freestyle I use my 5 inch.

interesting..... ive not checked out th MC on the new firmware yet....

what Id like it to do, is to allow you to prevent rotation of the drone by rotating the controller.
in other words to turn the drone, you have to TILT the drone.

this would be very useful ... the issue is, its quite easy to accidentally rotate the controller (and so drone) by moving your wrist - then you almost end up having to stop to reset yourself (since if you move your wrist back, it rotates the drone again!)

so it would be really handy to be disable controller rotation, and then you only control the drone by tilting the drone back/forward, left/right

(also perhaps DJI saw so many youtubers reviewers, thinking you had to rotate the controller vs tilt it.. so they saw its as a useability issue)

I'll see if I can give it a go tommorow... as Im really happy if this was done

Hello
I would like to know if somebody has experienced this issue after the update of the firmware of the drone ( I updated google, control, and batteries). The drone as soon it was on the air the camera is banding to one side, something not happened to me before the upgrade.  please check the video in the link below to appreciate the camera tilt ( I know is an fpv drone ) but like I said before when in normal mode and stationary it has not presented with that issue.  can anybody tell me if this issue happened to anybody else?.  I did calibrate the gimbal several times and the issue still present.

Hi Max,

I also want to use the drone for long range, what settings do you use to minimize propwash?
