Mavic 2 Zoom is now RID compliant

I'm in the market for another Mavic 2 Pro but I will now need to ascertain that the latest firmware update has NOT been installed before I buy one
If it has tha latest firmware .0797, you can downgrade it to .0790 with the DJI assistant. I just did that with no problem.
Then, if you wish, you can use Drone-Hacks to remove DJI's NFZ and altitude restrictions. This will not work with firmware .0797.

This is a very useful fact to know. Much obliged sir. No Limit Drones is a Godsend.
 
Did the update. Got error 180, fixed that. Now I'm getting an error labeled "remote ID error. Unable to take off. Make sure DJI fly can access mobile devices location. Flying without broadcasting required remote ID messages made violate local regulations." What I find weird about this is that I'm using DJI go 4 (fully updated) not DJI fly. Any assistance is appreciated. (FYI I am using the smart controller)
just had to restart the drone and everything worked fine. i could not find the serial number in settings, so if anyone knows where i could find it i would appreciate that. i did use drone scanner on a s22 and the drone came up immediately (to my dismay) with a serial number, uas location and operator location. can i use the serial number that im receiving on my phone or is it a different one that i have to register?
 
I'm starting to see a disturbing number of complaints from DJI quadcopter owners who updated for Remote ID compliance, only to find that their drone was bricked as a result.

Thank goodness I reside in the Third World where the FAA and CAA shackles are but distant curiosities. I cannot imagine wading through all the rules and regulations just to fly a drone around my home.
like waynorth said, you are able to downgrade to a pre rid software that is safe.
 
A new firmware update was just released to add RID support to the Mavic 2 Zoom. See more details in the release notes here.
Might be abit late into the discussion.I bought my mavic 2 zoom 5-6 years ago.registered it.didnt really use it much,but enjoying it recently.I studied abit for a 107.a bit confused with RID compliance.I fly just about anywhere in and around the city i live.Ive only gotten a full NFZ in a couple spots.Other places like downtown I have to have internet connectivity,it always been approved.ive just updated when it said i needed to_Once inawhile I get a wierd "abnormal" something box,close it works normally. I mean its registered with the FAA,it still my drone.What is RID compliance?I thought that was what it is doing when requesting flight near a NFZ

RID compliance is not related to requesting permission to fly near a NFZ.

Remote ID (RID) for drones is a system that allows drones to broadcast their location and identification information in real-time to other parties nearby. This information can be received by people on the ground using an app, such as law enforcement, the FAA, or the general public. There are apps for Android and iOS that can pick up the RID information for drones operating nearby.

RID can be transmitted over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. If you are in the US, all drones that require registration are required to have RID. That RID can be provided by the drone and R/C directly or by attaching a separate RID transmitter.
