A lot of work has been done by DJI recently to change the firmware code for some of its most popular products. If you bought a Mavic 3 drone in November 2021, DJI said it would be able to do certain things. This time, the drone’s code has been cleaned up. Things like quick shots and panorama modes are now available. The most important thing is that D-Log can now be shown in color.
v1.5.8 of the iOS and Android versions of the DJI Fly app have been updated to work with the new hardware. If you want to get the most out of it, you also need to update your Mavic 3 drone and its controller to version v01.00.0500 (Drone) and v04.13.0500 (controller) (controller). Everything can be done through the app, as always.
This time, DJI has put together a long list of changes in the changelog. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case; more often than not, it says “bugs fixed.” View Assist, QuickShot presets, panorama modes, digital zoom, and QuickTransfer are all features that DJI promised when they released the Mavic 3 a few years ago. These features have now been implemented.
There will be a new Mavic 3 drone from DJI called the Mavic 3. It will be released in November of that year.
