As you know, there are many of us having issues with the official firmware. Many of us have opted in to test the firmware BETA 02.00.0600. Although it fixed a lot of the issues we had with the official firmware, it was not perfect. Some of us still had minor issues, but a lot better improvement over the official beta.
Those of us who had the BETA 02.00.0600 firmware pushed to our accounts to test, should have received an email today about participating in the new BETA 02.00.0700 firmware.
Keep in mind, this is not the official firmware. It is a closed beta. It is meant for the individuals who are having issues with the current firmware for troubleshooting purposes.
The email states it is a beta firmware to address the following:

1. Optimizes the flight limitation feature.
2. Fixes an issue where the gimbal and camera might be restarted.
3. Optimizes flight performance and enhances flight stability.


Please, let's start this thread for constructive feedback and report any findings to the engineers regarding this new beta firmware.
I feel we are getting closer to rectifying the problems introduced in the official firmware and hopefully we can start this new year with an official firmware soon.
Let us thank our forum administrators who have been very responsive and helpful in tackling our firmware issues.

Happy New Year and Happy Flying!

Great news and thanks for the update. So we'll be receiving an email confirming that it has been pushed to us that already have the .600 Beta. Am I understanding the original post in that "Everybody" that has the current Beta .600 will be receiving .700?

I have the .600 update.  No email yet about the .700.  I also checked the Assistant 2 and nothing for an update to .700.  Curious, if only the people that contributed to the problems with the existing beta will be notified only?

I'm curious as to whether the people who received this email had posted their details in a thread when requesting the 02.00.0600 version. I'm in the same position as you, waiting for email, nothing on Assistant 2, and no official notification at all on the forum.

I'm curious as to why all the DJI admin folk appear to have gone AWOL at the same time as this beta. One might have thought that a new beta release would have been something that DJI would have liked to have announced in a forum such as this. There seems to be no explanation for the capricious ways in which DJI operates.

Per my earlier note, I’m also wondering why there has been no official notice by any administrators about this new beta.  In fact, I don’t recall seeing any admins online today in the P4 threads although they have been posting in the Mavic and Spark threads.

Unless they focus on expected demand, Spark and Mavic perhaps outselling the P4 series over Christmas.

The easiest way to verify it would be for one of those who have received a mail would be to copy it on a PM to a mod and ask them to investigate and confirm if it came from DJI and is real.

I never... ever... ever get invited to closed betas. It hurts.

Nonetheless, great news we are still moving in the right direction. Based on the current trajectory, we should have a stable release mid 2019. God speed beta testers. We're all with you.

Your aircraft from will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests and will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from Phantom 4 annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive!

Sorry - don't know what came over me.

I got invited, but wondering if those invited are some of us that .0600 didn't fix the stability issue etc..? Just a thought, as some are very direct still there is no firmware issue and their birds fly fine on .0600.
I on the other hand, have a bird that hates .0600. So I am anxious to try .0700 and see if we are much better now. I won't be able try till this weekend, as of now its -8, with a -20 windchill, 30 mph plus wind gusts. and I am not not up for that ;-). That and its dark when I get off work now ;-( .

Hope to try it this weekend.

"wondering if those invited are some of us that .0600 didn't fix the stability issue"

That would imply there is some form of... logic... behind the software development process. Some kind of lifecycle or framework or something. Sorry.  I don't buy it.

Possibly! My P4 was never "fully" fixed by the previous beta, and I was also included in this latest DJI email.

Has anyone that was included in the .700 beta been able to test yet?  I'm super curious about the range issue and if that has been addressed? .600 seemed to have fixed most of the issues I was having.  I also see they just pushed a new version of the dji 4 go app.

It’s interesting how DJI have selected individuals for this beta. I’ve been involved in every beta for the P4 and P4P for the last couple of years, was involved in the last infamous closed beta last January, and been active in this forum - yet I wasn’t invited.
Good luck to those participating, and please keep us informed in what you find. Unless, of course, DJI ask you to commit to non-disclosure agreements.

Yes, according to the email this is a closed beta. However, I am uncertain what the conditions are for who is included or why a certain few were invited. My guess would be the ones who still had minor issues.

I've successfully installed the firmware via DJI Assistant 2 (I uninstalled DJI Assistant 2 then re-installed the newer version 1.2.0) and upgraded normally.
Will test the flight in about 30 minutes time. It has been raining this morning but the skies have cleared. Hoping for the best

Okay, I just completed maiden flight on beta firmware 02.00.0700. I installed the firmware on the bird, restored factory settings, refreshed the firmware twice per each battery as well as restoring factory settings on each battery. On the final refresh, I did vision sensor calibration with no issues. Deleted DJI GO 4 and reinstalled on iPhone X. Then I calibrated IMU and compass before flight.

I was only able to complete one flight, one battery from 100% to 29%. It started to rain so I could not test further. I am happy to report, so far, everything is running perfect. Recorded using 4K30p D-LOG the whole flight, flight characteristics are so much more refined. In sport mode, no erratic behavior with hard flying in all directions or sudden braking, seems to handle everything more swiftly. IMU Error bug on start-up has not appeared.

I am not done testing, so I cannot 100% say everything is perfect yet. Tomorrow, if weather permits, I will test various settings, I know I was able to trigger the gimbal restart on the .0600 firmware, although it more difficult to do so. I could not easily reproduce the restart in .0600 firmware. However, I think it was related to changing the color profiles back and forth, as well as 3D noise reduction on/off. I will test all this on the next flights. On the .0600 firmware, color profiles did not save for some reason, also some weird bugs with AUTO/Manual settings that does not get retained.

So far, so good guys! *fingers crossed*

So every thing is flashed and ready for flight tomorrow if the snow storm holds off.

I did run into one issue, and just wanted to share it and the fix if someone hasn't already figured it out.
After flashing, flashing again for the second battery, and resetting defaults I went on to calibrate.

Only to find out every time I started to calibrate, DJI Assistant told me to reboot my drone.



The issue was discovered that the vision driver is either not signed, or improperly signed in the latest build and Windows 10 would not allow the driver to install.

I simply rebooted to recovery mode, went to advanced and told my system to restart with advanced mode. From there you can pick something of along the lines of "Disable or turn off driver signing." I forget its actually wording. Once this was done, turning on the drone connected to the USB port and allowed the driver to install and for me to calibrate perfectly.

Fingers crossed for semi good weather, and even more a stable flight tomorrow. My hopes are high, as I really don't want to have downgrade again...

Will post here as soon I get to try, maybe the storm will hold off long enough. Anyone else flown yet? If so please post a small clip of the stability.
Here is to hoping tripod mode is back and not wobbly, I missing making hyperlapses.
