DJI Mini 3 Pro firmware update arrives with various new features, improvements and fixes for compact drone
Almost two months have passed since DJI unveiled the Mini 3 Pro, its replacement for the Mini 2 that launched with the DJI RC remote controller. Understandably, DJI has sought to address some early issues and missing features, which it is now rolling out as firmware v01.00.0201. Additionally, DJI has updated the RC-N1 and RC remote controllers, now on firmware v04.14.0221 and v01.01.0000, respectively.
Moreover, DJI has updated its Fly app to v1.68, a prerequisite for upgrading the Mini 3 Pro or either of its remote controllers. According to a changelog, DJI has enabled four new features for the Mini 3 Pro, described below:
- Adds support for using FocusTrack, QuickShots (including Dronie, Rocket, Circle, Helix, and Boomerang), and Hyperlypse functions in Portrait mode for DJI Mini 3 Pro.
- Adds 2s to shutter interval in Hyperlapse for DJI Mini 3 Pro.
- Adds USB mode for DJI Mini 3 Pro to improve aircraft battery life when connecting aircraft with computer to export files (Go to Camera View > Settings > Camera to enable this mode).
- Adds support for centering remote controller as the Indicator. Tap the upper left corner of the Indicator to switch.
Meanwhile, DJI claims to have fixed an issue that caused flickering in some scenarios where videos had been filmed in the D-Cinelike format. Moreover, the company states that it has optimised the vignetting effect in photos captured using DNG. Separately, DJI has resolved a conflict that resulted in a false prompt appearing on the DJI RC or an Android device when selecting intelligent flight modes in portrait mode. Also, DJI has included the following optimisations:
- Increased the camera speed when taking photos.
- Increased the dynamic range for Hyperlapse.
- Increased the stability of videos when using Hyperlapse.
- Optimised image quality of recordings at night in D-Cinelike.
- Optimised the anti-interference ability and the transmission distance of the image transmission system.
- Optimised the correctness of the battery level indicators on the DJI RC-N1 remote controller.
- Optimised battery load management when flying in environments with strong winds.
All firmware upgrades are available to download as over-the-air (OTA) files through the DJI Fly app. Please note that transferring these files can take some time and can only be done through DJI Fly v1.68.
