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.

yeah, that's the plan.   I'm a little hesitant because of the problems that I experienced when I updated to .0400.   I'll stay here (.0300) and see if some of the other users that are on .0400 and HAVE had problems, experience improvements.  In this case, your experience won't be a barometer for me, since you didn't experience problems with .0400.  

Although the tech in me is really itching to upgrade and let it fly.  

Thanks for the post, and I'll be watching carefully as to the upcoming developments.3

I guess miracles do happen.  I was convinced that the lengthy wait was due to the multitude and magnitude of issues they were addressing.  Fingers crossed, but

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

I did update to .500 on the MP.

No , I’d say it will be soon, hopefully it will bring some good things for some and some fixes for others.

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

According to notes, there will be nothing stopping rolling back, but only to .400 .

Lack of it makes AvtiveTrack and Gesture/Follow useless so it should be natural..
Beside, Spark have it.

Any clear statement from DJI would be very welcome - not only phrases, facts please. Just to clear things up.

Hey, we can start a guessing game to get some fun out of it: Starting point is DJI server time from now on, everyone gives a guess about release time for MA firmware .500 in month/day/hours/minute. The nearest tip wins... [sarcasm on] shall we add year?[sarcasm off].

Happy landings and have fun - there are more important things on earth.

Interesting that the Air .500 release notes differ from the MVP .500 release notes -- does this mean the fixes only apply to the Air model? The upload dates differ for the two as well with the Air version being the most recently posted.

Firmware updates are always device specific. DJI Go Updates, you get all the junk for other devices as well as the one you actually own.

I know what happened. They went back to enable both the Goggles and smartphone to work at the same time just because I asked.

Thanks, DJI! Much love for you!

A few weeks ago when the Spark FW was upgraded (after a long time without updates), the release notes were leaked a few days before the FW was released. So my guess is we'll see the new Air FW release sometime in the next week.

still waiting for the advertised (and later removed from specs) waypoints feature, also dynamic homepoints is a must and should be present since Spark also has it...

As for the bug fixes, I hope it fixes all .400 issues even though I haven’t experienced those any of those myself yet...

Hopefully you get what your looking for, from those posting here it seems more are looking for add on’s rather than fixes.

You know, I've owned multiple DJI products and have been pleased with all of them for the most part.  The tech is amazing.  I'm still kinda mad I sold my Spark.  And the MA is a really cool platform, but I feel for the folks that have chosen to  ground theirs waiting for FW updates that were promised but never delivered.  DJI's handling of this platform has been almost criminal.  It will not be lost on me.

wouldn't be great to have one App for each drone?

At this point in time, there is not.  DJI briefly posted a new Release Notes PDF that included changes for .0500, but the FW never appeared and the Release Notes were removed from the downloads page.

Well, one more reason to sell my MA and keep my MPP until Christmas when the M2Z goes down a bit in price.

I am done waiting for the drone to work as advertised. It has been sitting in its box for 2 months.

I figured the best way would be that you select the drone/s you have, and then it downloads the files for that and remembers your choice. If you never select Phantom, you never download Phantom files.
