Well anxious to see what you find here, was just in another forum where a user was swearing there was no firmware issue.Would love to get off the old version and start using the DJI app etc... Anxiously awaiting P4 2016 Flier ;-).

I ran the newest Beta yesterday and flew for about 15 minutes. I'm happy to say that the erratic flying qualities it had are completely gone. Mine had it bad too. My forward sensors would mistakingly see an object; even at altitude and would come to a sudden stop. Once I neutralized the controls and proceeded forward again, all was good but every time I went into a hover and would go forward again, I would have to repeat that procedure. I probably just need to calibrate the sensors which I didn’t do this time. I’m happy so far.

Great, hopefully that issue would be fixed to by release if it is something. Tired of doing work arounds, I often just get the P2 out anymore so I can just turn it on and fly without tons of steps to walk thru atm.

I also updated to the beta v02.00.0600 today and took her for a test flight , 1st impressions are everything seem a lot more stable .
I also noted when taking photos the screen didn`t go blank and it seemed to write to card a lot faster even though I was using the same SD card I have always used.
I have my PFCO test tomorrow so lets hope it stays stable for that !

I had the same experience as Punchbuggy although I did all the calibrations. The Beta firmware update .600 went without issues. BUT
1. When flying into the wind the Drone behaves erratic, but not when flying with the wind.
2. When flying sideways it flies steady.
3. When flying with Obstacle Avoidance Disabled  in P mode the Drones speed is like in Atti mode.
There are already videos and logs in another thread sent to DJI that illustrate this behavior.
After the update the Drone definitely flies smoother but is not fix totally.
There have to be Drones at DJI that behave the same.
I will refresh the firmware and do everything over again to see if it solved the erratic behavior.
DJI why is the Drone flying steady sideways but not forwards and backwards.
Just want to add, all are updated to latest versions. AC, RC and Apps.

2. When flying sideways it flies steady.

And for the record, here was the result of my test reported in another post:

I have just installed Beta 2.000.600 on my P4, RC wanted to update to 1.9.3, and my GO app is iOS 4.1.12.

I did a VPS calibration after successfull update, followed by a gimbal calibration.

Result: there was a breeze, but that was no excuse for how the craft bucked around during a hover about 3m from the ground. I have not seen the P4 as unstable in a hover as that (even with the latest Prod release) - minor jerks, with the occasional sideways jump. I had it hover at 1m, 2m, and 3m with the same instability evident. I was not game to fly it away further, so didn't test the 4K recording.

From my perspective, the firmware was a fail. I'll try to reset to defaults and do a refresh, and then do a second test this weekend. Perhaps yesterday was just due to solar flares or a black cat walking in front of me...

Don't yet. Others have reported success with .0600. As mentioned, I'll reset back to factory defaults and try a refresh on the weekend and see if that makes a difference.

Thanks DJI Susan - I noted the reply in the other thread, but I'm viewing this thread as better to retain all tester's experience. I will refresh the beta firmware before trying again on the weekend (tomorrow). If I have the same experience I'll send logs for that flight.

I'm excited! For the first two flights I can say very smooth and precise control, very good communication between drone and remote controller and no fake movements when flying and when going down at maximum. I'll keep flying and testing but I see, very good job DJI! Keep up the good work and thanks very much for the support!

No more black parts of the screen while taking photos yes. The drone fly's just perfectly, I don't want to describe it so fast but I see many things fixed in this new beta firmware and I will fly with it. I see some 'Basic fly safe' database and some other new things

Kees, you'll have better luck getting DJI Susan or Diana's attention if you Personal Message (PM) them directly or reply to one of their posts. That way they'll get an alert. There's too many threads here for them to see Every post.

Punchbuggy, very sorry for taking this forum for this question, but: how do I PM an admin? I would think: select one of their messages and then press the Personal Message button?  However, that button brings up a popup form that I cannot type in any text. The button itself is not blue, just a thin blue line, does that mean anything? Again, thanks for your help. (Looked in the Forum rules but cannot find it there). Kees

Kees, you were doing it correctly, but it is confusing where to type. The pop-up screen has two parts - the top showing your conversation, with the bottom being where you type your one line message. Below the bottom line you'll see what looks like at face on the right side, and that's the section where you type. When you're done you just press <Enter>, and when sent that message should then appear in the top section.

Vendex and others,

after asking for the 0600 firmware bugfix, how long after the reply of Susan did it take before the firmware was available? She acknowledged by request 4 days ago, and I do not want to put to much pressure on her. But  the firmware should become visible in Assistant 2, right?

Correct, but you have to be logged into your account (and you could try logging out and back in if you already are), and it sometimes helps if you refresh the list of firmware available (there's a little button at top right of the list).

Hello Kees, in my case it takes 1 day and I installed it immediately, but that was at the beginning, one day after the current latest beta (600) becomes and yes it's good to re-enter (logout/login again) DJI Assistant 2 registration

Is there a document that lists the fixes and new features, if any? I have experienced some issues that thus far have been inconveniences, but some of these could be bad news under the wrong circumstances. If specific items have been addressed and documented, I might be willing to take the risk of using beta firmware. I would suspect that many, if not most, of the beta users have more than one AC and use the beta on only one of these.

Hi. DJI rarely advise what is fixed - they tend to only advise what new features have been added when releasing new firmware. For advice on what is fixed  (hopefully) in beta firmware, we're reliant on the advice of the DJI support mods here.

But for the record, this .0600 beta for the P4 is supposed to fix erratic flight behaviour and gimbal controller/camera reset when recording in 4K video. No idea what else may have been tweaked... Regardless, if you have a P4 and regretted updating it to the latest prod firmware, this beta firmware is definitely better.

Thanks Punchbuggy. It's good to know that it is stable and is an option if any of the minor issues become more serious.  I haven't had issues with erratic flight. Only issue with gimbal is tilt but i'm not sure that's not my fault.

Vendex et al,

3 days ago I received the beta 0600 software. Since then I have spent 3 long evenings trying to install it without success. I see 4 different betas. the most recent is 0600 in  DJI assistant 2. When I connect the P4, assistant recognizes it and offers to install. Whichever version I try, it will download the firmware (several minutes, and when it is 100% downloaded is waits several seconds and then generates an error  saying that it cannot install. It them offers to generate and send an error log  and that is it.
I have tried two cables, 2 computers, several USB ports. I tried several of the beta versions, and I also tried downgrading first to 1.02.
There is not much activity from the drone (just nervous led flashing, but no changes or restart). I tried with an empty micro memory card and without, with the controller on and off, et etc. DJI Go 4 simply states that I have the most recent version, so hat does not update it either. I have read many threads on this, tried their suggestions, to no avail.
I AM DESPERATE! What am I doing wrong> Drone has never been wrong untill the firmware update.
Any help much appreciated.

Hi. If Assistant 2 can download the beta firmware but when it gets to "Transmitting..." it stops, then you're impacted by a similar issue to a number of us. The likely culprit is the latest Windows 10 update.

I suggest you forget about Assistant 2 for the firmware upgrade untill this is resolved. You can perform the firmware update via the DJI GO app, assuming that your smartphone/tablet has WiFi access to the internet.

DJI Assistant 2 recognizes your drone because it start downloading firmware, could you try disabling your firewall/anti-virus software before you start program, i think something is filtering your data transfer to drone?

Punchbuggy, brief Q: in that case, do I connect P5 via an usb to my DJI-G0 phone? Or does it work via the controller and wifi link to the P4.

(sorry for my delay in answers, always. I have a quite busy job and got the P4 from my students, because I like technology nd they think I should relax from time to time).

Hi Kees. Hey, Google is my friend...  ;-)

https://www.heliguy.com/blog/dji-phantom-4-firmware-update-guide/

I feel terribly stupid but it just doesn't work. In the past, when there was new firmware, DJI Go app would indicate that and I would just update.
If i do it EXACTLY os in the webpage you sent me,
first: the dji go app opens up with the DJI Spark rather than the P4.
Then I change that by selecting the P$, then pressing "enter device", the app opens up but NO new hardware version appears. According to assistant 2, I definitely do not have the newest version.

This leaves me lost at step 6 on your webpage, with my drone connected to my phone (LG Nexus 5x, which btw has always worked perfectly) via a cable, and the controller switched on but not connected with any cable.

Problem with these step-by-step guides is that they never work excatly as stated (or, again, I am incredibly stupid).
Thanks for your time! Kees
