Today, DJI released what seems to be a small firmware update for the Mavic Air 2. The firmware update seems to only focus on two improvements or fixes. The first one is that apparently video was abnormal when recorded to the aircraft and the second one optimizes the return-to-home function of the drone. This is firmware version: v01.00.0130

About the DJI Mavic Air 2
The DJI Mavic Air 2 is DJI’s latest drone and fits right in between the DJI Mavic Mini and the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom drones. For $799 the Mavic Air 2 offers most of what the much more expensive Mavic 2 drones offer, although it falls short in some key areas such as low-light performance. For most drone pilots though, the Mavic Air 2 might just hit the sweet spot with its improved OcuSync 2.0 that makes for a foolproof video transmission signal between the drone and the remote controller. DJI calls the Mavic Air 2 the smartest drone it has ever made. The unmanned aircraft features DJI’s AirSense technology that includes ADS-B In to warn you about any manned aircraft that might be close to where you are flying your drone.
