"OPTIMIZED FLIGHT SAFETY."
Thank you very much for this detailed info.Today 28.12.2022 I was out with a Mavic 2 Zoom drone that I bought brand new in 2018 (I have been flying drones from Phanom 2V+ through Phantom 3 S and Mavic 1 Pro since 2017).
I have installed the new firmware for the Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom despite doubts whether it is a user trap and may degrade flight characteristics or shorten transmitter range or whether the drone will work with Litchi like Waypoint, tracking, circle and other features. I declare that the new firmware V 01.00.0790 has not affected any features. The drone fully performs all functions reliably and without change. It is stable , like nails in the sky. In the GO4 application version V4.3.54 for android everything works reliably, smoothly without limitations. I made a flight to a distance of 5km and the signal was 80% strong. Litchi performed Waypoint completely flawlessly. The drone descended, climbed, changed speed and also rotated to the point of interest. All as I had entered on the map on the computer at home as a plan for a future flight. I mean the planned mission with Litchi. 500m altitude is also allowed. The only thing I have noticed is , that I cannot revert back to a lower or older firmware version. The option to descend to an older firmware version has been removed. This is also what the computer program assistant for Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom shows. I don't regret anything that I can't downgrade the firmware. Because everything works flawlessly. But it's up to everyone whether to update the drone or not. Make up your own mind people. But if you do the update, you will still be happy.
I was convinced that DJI would do that with firmware .0790 . But according to Drone-Hacks it is still possible to use their tool to remove NoFlyZones, remove altitude limit and enable FCC in CE-countries, also with .0790."Security" means "anti-tampering locks". This usually comes in if they're removing user ability to hack their drones by fixing a hole used by the hacking software.
This bill is currently in congressional committee:So far, I have heard nothing to compel me to upgrade, and a lot of items that incline me not to. As long as it keeps flying OK with the current firmware, I see no reason to "upgrade" ?!
