Drone's attitude displayed in future version of DJI Fly app - New version of DJI Fly app includes Attitude Indicator

Drone’s attitude displayed in future version of DJI Fly app

Leaked screenshots of what seems to be the next version of the DJI Fly app show that the drone’s attitude will be displayed in the left bottom corner of the app. Let’s take a closer look.

The next version of the DJI Fly app might show the drone’s attitude

On the Chinese version of the DJI Forum, four screenshots of what seems to be an upcoming version of the DJI Fly app were shared by Daniel W.

Noticeable is that in the bottom left corner the drone’s attitude will be displayed. The two thin white lines will display both the pitch attitude as well as the roll or bank attitude of the unmanned aircraft. In the same graphic, you will also find the compass and map functions, bringing together information about your drone’s heading, location, and attitude.

There is no information currently available to indicate if this new version of the DJI Fly app will make its way to drone pilots in China or the United States. We wouldn’t be surprised though to see this new way of displaying the drone’s altitude, direction, and location in one of the upcoming DJI Fly updates.

In the bottom left corner, you see the map displayed. You can toggle between the various option by tapping on the map.

In this screenshot of the DJI Fly app, you can clearly see that the drone is pitched upwards and going through a banked left-hand turn.

  • The attitude indicator is probably the only thing from GO4 that I miss in the Fly app. It would be great to get that functionality back, especially for determining wind speed at altitude and troubleshooting IMU issues. Hopefully it’s a feature that applies to all the Fly compatible drones.

    Did you notice the hexagonal icon on the left? It’s visible in three states; red with a slash through it when the aircraft is not connected, solid green (when the aircraft is apparently powered on but not flying?), and white with the green aircraft arrow while airborne. If it’s an obstacle avoidance indicator it looks like the drone has sensors on the front, back, and sides. Mavic 3 leak perhaps??
