Hi everyone!
Just got my MM this weekend. Absolutely love it! The only drone I flew before this is a Tello; which is a great little trainer IMHO.
Enjoying getting to know the MM, but it seems my edition of the DJI Fly app doesn’t have alll the controls that I’ve seen available on many YT videos that I’ve watched. Specifically, the menu to adjust some of the camera controls. I currently have no ability to access dronie features, etc. Any thoughts on how to do this. We tried to update the firmware, maybe it didn’t work?? My screen looks simpler than the one I’ve seen in the videos. I’m pretty sure this won’t be an original request, any direction to previous threads to cover this topic would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this for me!
Happy Flying, Jim

Welcome to the forum! :)

You're likely watching videos that show DJI GO being used. DJI GO cannot be used with the Mavic Mini.
