    You would be correct.

    I found this out by trying to revert the firmware, and having it unable to fly, THEN doing my research... :(

    But I was keen to keep the reverted firmware, so undertook the disassembly to insert the SD card. Wasn't too hard - there's a few videos around on how to disassemble (only do the top shell, you don't have to remove the lower casing!). The most difficult/time consuming/stressful part was removing the silicone-type stuff from the empty SD card socket, and working out how to open the tray. Again, research and Youtube are your friends...

    Happy to dig out the specific references I used, if you're keen to do it... otherwise you should be able to revert to more recent firmware to get a flying bird again (I did, before I had a go at it again).

    Knowledge of this has been around a while, no?

    Good, make it harder. ****, I'd be all for DJI detecting it and completely shutting down the aircraft unless you submit a reason as to why you're trying to do it.
