As I watched my flight from today on the RC screen, I suddenly noticed the drone is identified as a Phantom 4 (needless to say: I'm positive my drone is a Mini 3 Pro.. ).
See here at the lowr left corner of the screen:

So I checked previous videos to see if this is a newly introduced bug, and sure enough it was previously identified correctly. See here:

To be perfectly clear: I'm using the latest firmware and Fly App version:

Have you noticed that too?
DJI : Please advise.

Thank you.

Thank you for relating to this issue.Another piece of information I probably should add to further help investigating it, is that when importing the log to AirData, it correctly identifies the drone type. This sugests to me, that the wrong identification is not within the data sent by the drone, but rather by a bug in the Fly App.

Yes I've noticed the same thing since the latest update.  I did have a Phantom 4 a while ago, but no longer.

One of the Mods stated at least 3 weeks back that it would be fixed in an update so hopefully it makes the very next update.  Not a show stopper for sure but would be nice to get it correct.

Just an administrative hiccup really.

Please ask the software engineers to also address metric units displaying for logs even when Imperial units have been selected.  (on Android, not sure if this affects iOS also)

If you upload the txt flight log to https://www.phantomhelp.com/LogViewer/Upload/ and then download the resulting csv you can check how the drone is 'seen' in the log.

Take a look up this thread. The drone is seen correctly in the log. It's probably the RC that has the bug (or, maybe this is actually a glitch related to something DJI is planning for the coming updates...)

Guess what?
I had read the entire thread, in fact I quoted the post in which you posted the screen captures of the airdata output, did you not see that???????   

All I was suggesting is that you can see for yourself what is in the log if you followed the instructions.
