DJI has dropped a fairly large firmware update for its latest remote controller, DJI RC, to fix the issues that some Mini 3 Pro drone operators have been facing. This update comes days after the drone maker made the DJI RC compatible for use with the Mavic 3 and Mavic 3 Cine aircraft through a new software package.
With a size of about 850MB, firmware v01.01.0100 brings good news for those who have been experiencing issues, such as the DJI Fly app crashing or the screen going blank when flying for an extended period or in hot weather. This firmware bumps up the DJI Fly app to v1.6.9 and prevents the system from crashing, according to the release notes.
Further, DJI engineers have also fixed the bug where the RC screen would appear to be flickering when previewing photos and videos in playback.
An additional new feature that has dropped with this update is the DJI RC’s ability to identify the speed of the SD card you’ve popped inside the remote controller. If your SD card has a speed rating lower than UHS Grade 3, you would not be able to use the screen record feature of the controller, so make sure to use an SD card that meets the new speed class.
Meanwhile, you’d also want to check any photo, video, or flight protection settings you may have customized prior to the update. They may get reset once the new firmware is installed, and you do not want to go out flying without ensuring that your drone has a home point to come back to in case of an emergency or a lost connection. Calibrating the RC compass is also recommended.
