I have not bought a Mavic 2 yet, I am not really convinced ... and after seeing how unreliable DJI made the older Mavic I am wondering how are things with the new one. With DJI GO 4 4.2.21 the general experience was in general bad:

From about 50 users in that old poll, more than 70% of people experienced some issues.

So, it would be super helpful if the early adopters let us know the status of the situation now

The latest versions of dji go 4 frequently lose the connection or show garbled image transmission

So the problem was with the Android  App and not the Mavic Pro.

I’d misunderstood your post, I thought you were saying that the Mavic Pro was unreliable not the App’

Have you tried the latest V4.3.0 , I’ve read one or two posts suggesting this has fixed their video transmission problems.

Right, but it is hard to say because to get video feed again you have to land and take off again, even if you restart the android app... So it might be also the firmware

With Android Yes hence me moving to Ios, i did the update on the app(praying some new features went over to the Mavic Pro and it worked fine, flew out about 2,5 km in some heavy wind no disconnect, lag or anything was perfect like using my iphone, remeber I am using a Samsung S9+ so my phone is more then capable of running the new go4 app because of the 6 gig ram

You should always make poll public as this eliminates those who are just going to mess up your poll.

I did have video transmission problems (Mavic Pro). They were gone with 4.2.24. I haven't tried 4.2.30.

It makes no sense that we can't trust DJI's updates, but if you stay tuned to the forum you can always know which app (and firmware) versions work well. So in my experience this has not caused any major problems, but it's still spotty on DJI's side. You can't use your users as beta testers.

Never had any issues with the Android app on "Note 4" and "S7 Edge" or with the ios app (iPad PRO). I mainly used the note 4 but changed to S7 edge for the last two months. I occasionally use the iPad PRO.

Maybe worth mentioning that the Note 4 and now S7 Edge are dedicated to my Mavic... Stock software and no additional apps installed besides DJI go 4 app.

Most complaints of that type are due to running on an inadequate or poorly configured device.
The app runs without a glitch when it's on a good tablet.

Hi, Thanks for creating this thread to have surveyed and have comments or advise before buying a DJI Product. It would be better if you're using recommended devices that was tested with our engineers. Kindly let us know in any case that you'll encounter any issues. Thank you for the support.

Good that this might be useful as a survey.

I think the concept of the "recommended devices" is often used as a cheap excuse. Sounds what I would say if I work in support and wanted to delay the support with a client, like "yeah, reboot and try again", "yeah yeah, just reinstall everything and try again", "try to buy one of the old devices from the list we provide, if the issues continue then reboot and try again..."


I have 2 suggestions:

1) Make a device evaluator app, DJI GO PERFORMANCE CHECKER for example. Like a benchmarking app so the guessing is over

2) Use recommended specs, not devices. How can a phone with >32 GB flash and 4 GB ram will fail in DJI GO 4 but run any 3d game flawlessly? (my phone for example)

First line post number 1 in case you missed it. That was what prompted my comment given how reliable most of the Mavic Pros seem to be.

It is not the Mavic, it is the video feed in the app/app itself in Android (last versions at least, haven't tested 4.3 yet)

I think the Mavic Pro is lighter than the Mavic 2 and smaller, making it a bit more agile than the Mavic 2 grabbing more of the surface to hug the air.

Hello,

I disagree with that strongly.   Bit of research show you many people have problems with high spec phones, all stock, factory reset, no other apps, etc.    I don't understand why so many people post on this forum anyway, unless they have problem, or try to help with problems.   Many bored people with sad lives.

I grow weary of this forum and move on.

Happy day,

Jimmy

Disagree all you like ... but it doesn't change the fact that there are Android tablets that run the app flawlessly.
I fly a lot each week and since I upgraded my tablets a year ago, I haven't had a glitch.
