Good catch, but i am a but disappointed that we are not able to silence the RTH beeping on the remote yet.

And do you guys think we will ever see hyperlaps on the DJI GO 4 app for our loved mavic air?

Usually takes about 6 months for hand me downs, if of course it’s possible.

Make hyperlapse in post process, it takes 3-5 minutes of your time

Well if you want to shoot them in 4K with M2 you still have to do the work in post, so yes it can be done with MA.

I wonder if DJI are having a 'giraffe', "Here's the release notes" and "now for something completely different"

Has anybody seen the firmware yet, usually they release firmware then the notes.

I think maybe they are getting it right this time, hopefully the FW won’t take to long, should be here before end of winter. (;+)::::::

how do you follow a thread on this forum?

im getting tired of having to reply just to follow a thread or post..

but yeah, can't wait for the update as well, although i think whatever issues i may have had with my MA was user error related not firmware related... once i figured that out, i think my MA has been behaving. then again ... .

That happens with many, you will also see much of the problems are contagious, but symptoms are never the same, but it’s all good fun.

Regarding following a thread, on your home page just click on where you last commented it will bring you back to that thread.

My concern is I bought my Mavic Air in July and it has worked great for me.  I am a big believer in the saying that if it is not broken, don't fix it.  I am afraid if I update the firmware or the app, I may start having problems.  What do you people think?

If that’s what you think, then stay were you are, you could always wait and see how it goes, I’ve had no problems with .400 , but I’m a believer that FW is introduced to improve so I will update as I always have, and I’ve never had any problems.

Well spotted. I'm in Aust and will check when I'm home tonight.

But I'm really impressed with the Release Notes. In the past, DJI have rarely admitted to errors and kept quiet on what fixes were included, only listing the enhancements. But the last few releases I've seen (including this one for the MA) provide All the details. Well done DJI.

BTW, it's worth noting that the RC firmware is updated too - not just the craft firmware.

Man I hate seeing this but I love it in another way. Just sent my Air back to DJI for the motor current error. Now let’s wait and see what they tell me.

Well the notes say this error warning is sorted in this FW.

Just got home from work and quickly went to check via Assistant 2, no dice for either the MA or its RC... Gonna check via GO 4 now, but doesn't look like I'll do any test flights before sunset tonight


Update

Nope, nothing via GO 4 either... They can't even get their FW releases right, put out the notes first and then don't deliver the actual FW with it; every other company does it in reverse; release the FW, then the release notes along with it, or shortly after FW release...

DJI may need sometime to carefully testing before release. I will wait patiently and hope most of issue may be resolved. Especially flight range. It worse for me on 400 compared with on 300 at the same location and condition

Then why would DJI post release notes dated for today?

To eliminate last minute bug(s) may be. Just my thoughts. I hope they will release it soon.

Agree. At least no "firmware can not be rolled back" and a precise layout of "fixes". Improvement at least, thanks DJI.

The Mavic Pro firmware was updated 3rd September, a different beast to the awaited Mavic Air firmware of a similar name.

Woe posted that he has done the update on a MP. I think it is a Mavic Pro - false thread maybe?

I notice that DJI seem to be rearranging the download sections (Mavic Pro section has been tidied up a bit), could be that something leaked out earlier than planned, or imminent.

Very same thing with spark FW release, notes came up first, they were taken down to correct the notes and in a matter of a few days FW was released.

It’s not a false thread, FW notes were taken from dji downloads for Mavic Air.

I’ve seen the Mavic Pro dL , yes it has been tided up, on last spark FW release , the release notes were posted first and taken down a couple of days later, then they released FW and notes, whether it’s imminent, who knows but soon, I see the games have already begun. (;+):::::;;;;;

No no, I thought that Woe was false with the MP there. I think, this firmware update is related to the MA, as you mentioned and regarding the specs.

Well nothing there about not being able to roll back, it does say you need to be on the latest app, so if you intend to be able to roll back, you may need to roll app back to remain with your status quo,

that's a good point HM, however, I am still going to wait and see what the consensus is.  Since this is above .0400, i'm wondering if you are one of the people, like myself, that are still running .0300, If you need to roll back will it allow you to go back to .0300 or will it somehow only allow you to drop back to .0400?  I've seen crazier things from machine firmware updates.

I don’t think it will allow go back to 300 , so roll back would be just to .400, I’m on .400 and it has been fine for me, I will update , flying dji drones now for 5 years and have always updated, I have rolled back once and it was because I was having difficulty signing in, but that has been sorted now.
I suppose you have the option to stay where you are, but whether up to date app will effect older FW I’m just not sure, so maybe wait just a couple of weeks to see how it’s going.
