DJI Fly app updates to version 1.6.5 for iOS only

DJI updated the DJI Fly app to version 1.6.5 for iOS devices only. So if you're using the DJI RC, which runs on Android, you will not be able to update the app just yet.

DJI says that the update:

“Fixes certain issues and optimizes overall app quality.”

Darren from DM productions was quick to update the app, test it and make a video about it. Thank you, Darren. He used his iPhone in combination with the DJI RC-N1 to test the updated app's performance.

Ultimately, Darren advised against updating the app because he felt there were no significant improvements over the previous version.

If anything, there were two new issues that appear to be related to the updated .

First Darren got weird low-battery warning messages when the battery was still at 52%.

Second, he noticed some lagging in the footage displayed in the app while flying the DJI Mini 3 Pro. The lagging did not show up in the actual recorded footage, but it is definitely noticeable during flight.

Darren flew his Mini 3 Pro in high wind conditions, which would make the drone work harder to maintain its position and/or flight path. A few weeks ago, I flew the same drone in similarly high wind conditions and experienced severe lagging and even loss of transmission. Perhaps the conditions in which Darren flew contributed to the lagging effect?

Apart from some of the in-app buttons being slightly larger now, Darren says that he doesn't see the need for people to update the DJI Fly app since there are no other significant improvements.

Keep in mind that DJI always recommends that drone operators update their app, and firmware to the latest versions available.
