what is the assistant used for?
It can be used to:
  • Download internal DAT flight logs from the Mavic
  • Install new aircraft firmware
  • Roll back the aircraft firmware
  • Calibrate the Mavic's vision sensors
  • Fly the Mavic in the flight simulator

Got a Christmas present a few days ago. Beginning with familiarizing myself with setup and use. Downloaded Assistant 2 for Windows to laptop. Does not say on the DJI website if this is compatible with Win 10. I has seen some discussions about Win XP only. That OS is not supported. When I downloaded I noticed it was 32 bit only. New Win 10 is 64 bit. Also, when it loaded up (from Mavic page) it shows connection for the Inspire. Issues?? Expected?? What to do??

I'm not sure if this will help you but the first time I did it I was using a laptop and I couldn't get it to work either. The box that folowed the drone was a trapezoid instead of a square. It took me a while to figure it out. I had the drone at a 90 degree angle square to the laptop but I had the laptop's screen titled back like in normal use. I tilted the laptop screen forward so it was facing me at a 90 degree angle to the drone and that solved my problem.

Wasn't able to calibrate sensors with an iMac Sierra.
Also simulator crash everytime I tried.
