DJI released a firmware update for the DJI Mavic Air 2 that includes that ability to also use the controller for the DJI Mini 2, an updated return-to-home altitude of 400 feet, an optimized downward vision system, and a quieter start-up procedure.
With a small firmware update (V02.00.1100) for the DJI Mavic Air 2, the new Mini 2 has been added. So, now you can select which drone you’d like the controller to connect with before you start flying. This allows you to use one controller for multiple DJI drones in a similar fashion as to what’s already possible with the DJI Smart Controller.
After some confusing firmware updates for the DJI Mavic Air 2 last week, it seems that DJI now has cleaned up its act and got everybody on the same new firmware version v01.00.0340. This version offers a new 4K Zoom Mode and some other cool new features such as improved APAS, 4K in Hyperlapse, Optimized FPV mode for the gimbal, and more. Check out the videos below.
The Phantom 4 Pro and Pro+ V2.0 receive a new firmware update from DJI. This is version v01.00.20.00 which increases the transmission distance to 6 miles for the FCC version in the US and up to 3.75 miles for the rest of the world. Furthermore, the firmware update optimizes the ‘IQ parameter of camera to improve camera image quality.’ Please let us know what your experience is after updating your Phantom 4 drone.
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
DJI released a new firmware update for the DJI Mavic Mini (v01.00.0500), that brings important new features such as manual exposure control for video recording, manual white balance control, and additional 24fps for 2.7K and 24/48fps 1080p video recording. The Mavic Mini is DJI’s lightest drone (249 grams) in the Mavic series and was already punching above its weight. With these new firmware updates, this drone will become even more attractive to the traveling drone pilot.
Today, DJI released a firmware update for its DJI FPV System. This is version 01.00.05.00 and is for the Air Unit, Goggles and Remote Controller. The update contains some new features as well as a number of bug fixes. Maybe the most exciting part is the announcement from DJI that the next firmware update will offer a higher bit rate of 50Mbps to achieve better image quality.
In this video on YouTube, Billy Kyle explains in detail the improvements (or lack thereof) to the Skydio 2 drone with the latest firmware update, version 6.0.38. Some smaller improvements were good, but for the majority of this update, Billy says: “we’re left with an update that doesn’t really do much.”
After a short wait, the Apple app store is a lot more strict and thus slower to approve new apps, it is finally here. A new iOS firmware update (version 6.0.38) for the self-flying Skydio 2 drone. The firmware update promises a few bug fixes under the hood and improvements to the overall flight performance. I have just updated my Skydio 2 just now and will fly it later today to see if I can see a difference in how the drone behaves. If you have already flown yours with the new firmware, let us know what you think in the comments below.
