Apart from adding the 10-bit color depth, DJI also added support for Remote ID, the ability to detect abnormal attitude and brake automatically, added more video recording options, the option to set sharpness and noise reduction parameters, and more.
All in all, this firmware update should make the DJI Avata better to fly and allow you to get more creative and achieve better results with your aerial videography.
“Remote ID now permanently enabled on the DJI Avata. You’ll be required to have your phone plugged into your goggles durning flights. The update added some awesome features but they also brought the unwanted,” Ken Dono said in a tweet.
