Nothing is as annoying as when you are about to take of and find out that you can't because of a software update. Am going to the other side of the Earth ( bali ) in to weeks i dont whant to be on a abounded island and suddenly have to do a software update, how can i know when djI comes with a new one?

Why would a software update prevent you from taking off? If you don't want to update, then you should ignore the prompt to update and fly instead.

I just x out of it and take off. I have ignored the update on several occasions and never encountered what your talking about. I own a MPP.

As mentioned, neither software nor firmware (you mention both so I'm not sure which applies) stops you from using the Mavic. It seems this way but you can fly without updating.

It told you "update required" but not "can't take off". Update Required is just somewhat insisting wording for "update available". You are not actually required to do it at all.

I'd be amazed if the MP gets another update anyway (or at least before the M2).

And as others have said, not a problem. It doesn't force you to take updates. I delayed one for 2 months when working offshore because theres no safe way of recalibrating on a ship.
