Wow - I sold my MA at the beginning of August - I thought it would have been fixed by now - hope my buyer doesn't have too many issues!

Yup, regardless if this is accurate, given the lack of any attention by DJI to the MA, it feels like they've totally abandoned it.

I hope this isn't the case, because I know some people will take action on this soon...

I bought a spare hoping to sell it once they updated the FW.  Now I'm doubtful it will happen before my 12-months of 0% financing is up.

Fingers crossed they get the fixes in place soon. Perhaps the hold up was down to the M2 series launch but not thats old news they can hopefully fix the issues many are having.

https://youtu.be/6CMNAiKa4Qc?t=479  sad truth.

Some of the stuff this guy brought up were baseless, like having the ability to fly in NFZ... Sorry, they are there for a reason, just because you are a "pro" does not give you the entitlement to flaunt the rules...

Some of his other rants also seemed hyperbole, but some were valid... I did lose a little respect for him after this.

Well, we've just been handed a Christmas Miracle in September, DJI has FINALLY released FW 0500!

I'm going to give it a go tonight when I get home from work to see if any of our issues reported here got corrected, as, curiously, NONE of them are listed in the release notes, but a BUNCH of others I never experienced got "fixed"...

Let us know when it finally shows up.  I'll believe it when I see it.

I'll be looking for your review of the new firmware.  I, too, noticed that none of the problems that we were complaining about, except for the motor current error, were listed among the fixes.  Specifically the Yaw problem.

I'll be interested to know how your bird flies after this update!

I didn't lose any respect for him after this.  He was pretty clear that it was his experience.  While he did engage in a little hyperbole,  he just came across as ranting.  We all rant from time to time, and since he was positioning it as his own personal hate, and not "why everyone should hate DJI", i'm ok with it.  He's got a right to his opinion.  but what was funny to me was the fact that I get the "you must update" error all the time.  but before I fly, i simply turn off any connection to internet, and then make the connection to the aircraft.  I only get relevant errors after that.  

And as for NFZs, isn't there a way to unlock them?  If you're going to fly for professional reasons, then you should be in a position to plan it, and therefore have time to do the unlocking procedure...  

I'm just sayin.....

I'll definitely be posting up a review after the 0500 gets installed, along with the RC FW update also released...

For now it seems the update is not being released, as even the link to the revised release notes has been pulled, which seems to indicate it was posted in error.

Fair enough...

Yes he was clear, but for me, being someone like himself with a fair amount of clout as a pro pilot and business owner, to go on a rant like that, some of which like you pointed out was hyperbole, doesn't sit well with me... Too many of these YouTube vloggers try to put out sensationalist vids without much substance to them, but hoping it catches on so it gives them clicks.

I've only had the update warning ONCE before flying, because I have a set pre-flight checklist, which includes checking for FW updates before heading out into the field. DJI usually releases FW updates in the mornings, so I always get them before going out. A pro pilot should be doing the same, his statements about the constant barrage of updates was pure hyperbole.

The NFZ thing again, was a rant I didn't care for, because yes, DJI does allow unlocking of NFZ's, but he seems to think they should all be permanently unlocked just because he's a "pro" pilot, making him sound like he should be above the law. The NFZ's are there for a reason, and just because you are a professional, shouldn't make one exempt from having to follow the rules.

Oh well

Good grief, can this company be any more inept when it comes to supporting this aircraft?

I should have been clearer.  I didn't have a great deal of respect for him to begin with, because of what you said.  So many vloggers put out what is essentially click bait.

with that knowledge, I don't put that much weight on them to begin with, so the fact that i didn't lose any respect doesn't say a lot.  
YouTube vloggers for me are only as good as the advice they give.  When it ceases to be objective, it no longer carries relevance.

And that is my exact point on the NFZs.  You can unlock them.  So if you're a pro, and doing your due diligence, you would get it unlocked before your flight.  Therefore, that point carried no weight at all.

That was a lot of words to say that you and I are on the same page.

Well, I say it's best to say however much needs to be said in order to ensure clarity all around, to prevent issues down the road

OK, going to go check to see if I can update my MA and RC, but unfortunately won’t be able to fly because it’s pouring rain here, and supposed to be most of next week
