Why haven't you fixed the vignetting/darkening problem of the 12MP DNGs ?
You did something wrong with the embedded profile (just compare with the 48MP DNGs) and that makes them unusable to creates panoramas

PLEASE FIX THAT ASAP.

After this update, the aircraft seems to often prompt to shut down after moments of idle not flying. I.e. when you leave it on the ground, motors off, to configure some settings. Think it's due to prevent excessive heat while there's no air flow. Compared to my Mavics, this Mini 3 does really heats up a lot. But at least give an option to cancel the shutdown. After the prompt, the screen freezes, followed by RC disconnects then aircraft turns off. I just hope it doesn't do this in mid air lol.

It is because as you said, it over heats very quickly so it shuts down to protect circuits.

I'm getting an error both trough updating the firmware (v01.00.0150) for the drone through the RC and DJI Assistant 2...On the RC it gives a "-4000" error code and on the assistant software on my computer "update failed. (1-36-6)!
Please assist. I've tried it multiple times the last 3 hours...


EDIT: sometimes I also get a (1-2-6)

Refer to the manual and the difference between "max. flight distance" depending on the battery you use and the "max. transmission distance", max. distance away from you and keep in mind. that these are under theoretical ideal conditions, which will never be reached.

18km is max flight distance you can fly using 249 battery, meaning you can go around in circles at optimum speed in windless conditions and its possible you can fly for 18km or 25km using bigger powered battery.

Max transmission in CE areas which you are is 8km and the max distance in one direction is 7-12 km this has only been achieved in controlled conditions.

There are various different things you can do to help and insure longer distance IE correct line of sight correct positioning of controller you can follow this on radar on fly app, your compass on RC should be calibrated correctly. Make sure Bluetooth and WiFi are turned off, make sure you are flying in correct hrtz for area you’re flying in , flying at correct height will also help.

Interference comes from many different things and is not always the same in areas you fly. For instance fly over urban areas in the middle of the day as opposed to 5,6,7 pm and you will notice big difference in interference.

The claims made by dji are really one off, but this will also be proven to be correct when you watch distance flying on YT , but if you’re expecting this all of the time, you might need an engine ;+)

One thought is it is related to the antenna design and the other is it is related to the automatic frequency hoping and switching between 2.4 and 5 GHz, which seems not to work as should or both together.
If you select manually either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz, depending on the area you are flying at, the connection seems to be more stable and the range is better.
And BTW, even with other drones, people do have the same issues as reported several times.

I tried to manually select for 2.4GHz but I am pretty sure this option/setting does nothing/has a bug because when you go back after you have changed it it is back on auto

You can change it and does stick. But yes I've see it do that also.

However 2.4Ghz is total crap on the M3P.
It's half the range of 5Ghz.
The 2.4G power output is very low.
And that's even in FCC mode.

Looks like DJI made this a 5Ghz drone.
Using the frequencies backwards.
(eg 2.4G for close and 5G for long range)
Completely opposite of how it should be.

In comparison.
Where a Mavic Pro (the original, 7 years old), can do 3.5KM on 2.4Ghz
The Mini 3 Pro can only do 1.5KM in 2.4Ghz
But switch the M3P to 5Ghz and it can go to 4KM in the same location.

So clearly DJI is limiting 2.4Ghz use.
I can understand why.
Since 5Ghz is lower latency and more bandwidth for the 1080p video.

The 2.4Ghz is rated at the same power level as the 5.8Ghz, as per manual spec.
That just doesn't seem to be the case.

wow thank you for the last 2 posts that is the most plausible and helpfull explanation for this topic - I will try it out with my next flight.
If manually selecting 5Ghz gives me 1km - 1.5km range without signal dropouts I am fine. So far I only tested manually selecting 2.4GHz as lower frequencies usually give a longer range.

no its not compatible yet

back to the original topic:
I did a test today the new software does nothing in solving the loosing signal issue.
Also manually selecting 2.4 or 5.8 does not change anything … but still my manual settings dont stick. Even though I can select 2.4 or 5.8 or dual in the first line the second line of the settings has only one setting „Auto“ and not like seen in the above video „Auto“ and „Manuell“

Are you trying to quick transfer your imagery onto a cellphone? If so, try turning off your cellular connection when attempting the quick transfer and then ensure only wifi is turned on, on your phone. This worked for me. Before doing this I would get a spinning wheel and no progress when trying to quick transfer files from the aircraft to my iPhone X.
Here's a Youtube link that worked for me:

using new extended batteries in mild headwind RTH generates a continuous, red, battery “over current” error message. the drone is flying at 10m/s ground speed. The wind might be 4m/s not much more (if it was more it could not keep 10m/s)

The range over water using FCC power (private property), line of sight with elevated position no interference visible, on smart controller, with bluetooth and wifi off, starts to get iffy at 3000m with the drone at 100m alt. Iffy as in 3 bars and orange. It could go further but I expect signal loss not too much beyond that.
edit:

From looking at a screen recording done by controller, drone stuck to 5.8ghz. Noise was at floor. All things being equal, with no noise, 2.4ghz should give longer range than 5.8ghz, yes? perhaps this drone is throttling 2.4ghz? perhaps the antennas are optimized for 5.8ghz?

Also, during RTH against wind, speed was actually ~8m/s not 10, indicating it was using max power to not get to 10m/s,
and obviously using max power continuously triggers the over-current warning. It would be nice if RTH was done at max safe continuous power.. or the warning threshold was raised.


please also add est. wind strength and direction calculation. The drone should be able to estimate wind by attitude and motor power?

so that update changed screen recording resolution from 960x480 to 960x540 and encoder from HEVC (H265 Main @L3.0) to HEVC (H265 Main @L3.1) while dropping AAC 2.0 96kbps stereo 48.000 kHz from the file created completely [pre update there was audio track created, silent now it's null'ed - still not 1080p that is received by DJI RC thanks to O3 standard...

I'm getting a similar problem. I can't download any firmware updates over my home's WiFi. I can only download them when I'm connected to my cellphone's hotspot connection to 4G LTE. My error reads like this: "Server error. Wait a moment and try again (Error code: -8)." Any resolution yet or other ideas?

Look for a download arrow somewhere on the screen. It may either look like a downward arrow or a downward arrow pointing to a box or line. This should be where you can choose to download your imagery...either onto the DJI Fly app folder or directly to your photos folder on your cellphone. Hope this helps.

I just gave it a few days so DJI could fix any issues and giving tech time always helps. And yes, the firmware update has worked and I am now at the most recent version.

It really can easily do 18km and if you have bigger battery 24km, this is the flying time not the max distance thats 6/8km .
