DJI has released a new firmware update for its sub-250-gram Mavic Mini drone.
The best bit about the aircraft and remote controller firmware v01.00.0600? Only that according to the official description in DJI’s release notes, this firmware update optimizes the flight safety of your drone.
Firmware updates, while sometimes containing more notable features, are commonly used for usual bug fixes and performance improvements. And the fact that DJI is still rolling out system updates for the original Mavic Mini ($399 for Fly More Combo and free bag) is a good indication that this drone is far from its end of life.
The firmware v01.00.0600 came out on Nov. 29, and the users who have successfully updated their drones have not reported any problems so far. This means you can also go ahead and update your Mavic Mini for better flight safety now.
