DJI resolves battery issue for the Inspire 2 with their latest firmware update (v01.02.0300) for the drone as well as the controller. The firmware update promises to address the battery issue for the Inspire 2, we reported on earlier.

DJI resolves battery issue Inspire 2
Indeed it seems that DJI resolves the battery issue for the Inspire 2. In the comments on Facebook, a support rep for DJI mentions the following:
“New firmware updates are now available for users of TB50 and TB55 batteries to enhance the battery management system and optimize power supply during flight, if you have the corresponding battery, please kindly update the firmware to the latest version, if you have multiple batteries, please run this firmware update on all of them.”
DJI still issued a warning as well though:
“During flying, we still suggest that pilot fly with caution, choose the suitable environment to fly. Thank you for your attention.”
- When using the Inspire 2 with the Zenmuse X4S/X5S/X7, it is recommended to update both at the same time.
- Ensure both the Master and Slave remote controllers are updated to the latest firmware to avoid control errors or camera and gimbal abnormalities.
- If the firmware update fails, restart the aircraft, remote controller, DJI GO 4 app, and then retry.
