DJI Mavic 2 Gets Firmware Update: Embracing FAA’s Remote ID

A Leap Forward for Drone Safety and Regulation

For drone enthusiasts, the latest firmware update for the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom is not just an upgrade; it's a significant step towards safer and more regulated skies. DJI, a leader in , has released a new firmware package that introduces crucial support for the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) requirements in the .

Understanding Remote ID

Remote ID is often compared to a “digital license plate” for drones. This important feature allows drones in flight to broadcast their identification and location, enabling federal agencies and the general public to easily locate the drone and the operator.

This is especially crucial when a drone is flying unsafely or in restricted areas. The FAA's implementation of Remote ID is a game-changer in drone regulation, making it mandatory for most drones in US airspace.

DJI's Proactive Approach

Though the FAA has extended the enforcement deadline for Remote ID to March 2024, DJI is ahead of the curve, ensuring compliance of its latest drones through firmware updates. The company's proactive approach reflects its commitment to responsible drone operation and adherence to regulatory norms.

As the FAA urges operators to comply as soon as possible, DJI's latest firmware update v01.00.0797 for the DJI Mavic 2 series makes compliance straightforward and hassle-free.

Updating Your DJI Mavic 2

DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom users can now update their aircraft's firmware, while the for iOS and Android should be upgraded to v4.3.60.

However, the remote controller firmware remains at v01.00.0770. A word of caution from DJI: Do not update the firmware if you're using the GS Pro app with your aircraft, as it is not supported in this new version.

After the update, it's important to restart the aircraft and remote controller. Users should also recheck and adjust their settings, like the Return-To-Home (RTH) altitude and maximum flight distance, as these may revert to default after the update. In case of update failure, a simple restart of the aircraft, remote controller, and the DJI GO 4 or should do the trick.

Embracing the Future of Drone Technology

This update, detailed in the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom Release Notes, underscores DJI's dedication to enhancing drone safety and regulatory compliance. It's a step forward in harmonizing the exciting world of drone technology with essential safety standards. For more details, users can visit the DJI website.
