Product Profile
Introduction
The DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom features omnidirectional Vision Systems and Infrared Sensing Systems.
Effortlessly capture complex shots using signature DJI technologies such as Obstacle Sensing and
Intelligent Flight Modes like Hyperlapse, Point of Interest, ActiveTrackTM 2.0, TapFly, QuickShots, and
Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS).
The Mavic 2 Pro features a fully stabilized 3-axis gimbal with a 1" CMOS sensor camera (jointly
developed by DJI and Hasselblad) that shoots 4K video, 20-megapixel photos, and supports filters.
The Mavic 2 Zoom features a fully stabilized 3-axis gimbal camera that shoots 4K video, 12-megapixel
photos, supports 2x optical zoom, 24-48 mm lens, and supports filters.
The Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom uses the latest technology to increase stability and footage quality, reducing the
Mavic 2 Zoom angle vibration range to within ±0.005° and Mavic 2 Pro angle vibration range to within
±0.01°.
Built into the remote controller is DJI’s long-range transmission technology OCUSYNCTM 2.0, offering a
maximum transmission range of 5 mi (8 km) and displaying video from the aircraft to DJI GO 4 on your
mobile device at up to 1080p. The remote controller works at both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz, and it can
select the best transmission channel automatically without any latency. The aircraft and camera can
easily be controlled using the onboard buttons. An onboard LCD screen gives real-time aircraft data
information, and the detachable control sticks make the remote controller easier to store. The maximum
run time is 2 hours and 15 minutes. The Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom boasts a maximum flight speed of 44.7 mph
(72 kph) and a maximum flight time of 31 minutes.
The major difference between the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom is the camera. The general
descriptions in this manual apply to both Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom.
Maximum flight time was tested in an environment with no wind while flying at a consistent 15.5
mph (25 kph) and the maximum flight speed was tested at sea level altitude with no wind. These
values are for reference only.
The remote controller reaches its maximum transmission distance (FCC) in a wide-open area
with no electromagnetic interference at an altitude of about 400 ft (120 m). The maximum
runtime was tested in a laboratory environment. This value is for reference only.
5.8 GHz is not supported in some regions. Please observe the local laws and regulations.

Aircraft
This section introduces the flight
controller, Intelligent Flight Battery, and
the Forward, Backward and Downward
Vision Systems.

Aircraft
The Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom contains a flight controller, vision systems, video downlink system, propulsion
system, and an Intelligent Flight Battery. Refer to the aircraft diagram in the Product Profile section.
Flight Modes
The Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom has three flight modes, plus a fourth flight mode that the aircraft switches to in
certain circumstances:
P-mode (Positioning): P-mode works best when the GPS signal is strong. The aircraft utilizes GPS and
the Vision Systems to locate itself, stabilize, and navigate between obstacles. Intelligent Flight Modes
are enabled in this mode.
When the Forward and Backward Vision Systems are enabled and lighting conditions are sufficient, the
maximum flight altitude angle is 25°, the maximum forward flight speed is 31 mph (50 kph), and the
maximum backward flight speed is 27 mph (43 kph).
Note: P-mode requires larger stick movements to achieve high speeds.
The aircraft automatically changes to Attitude (ATTI) mode when the Vision Systems are unavailable or
disabled and when the GPS signal is weak or the compass experiences interference. When the Vision
Systems are unavailable, the aircraft cannot position itself or brake automatically, which increases
the risk of potential flight hazards. In ATTI mode, the aircraft may be more easily affected by its
surroundings. Environmental factors such as wind can result in horizontal shifting, which may present
hazards, especially when flying in confined spaces.
S-mode (Sport): In S-mode, the Vision Systems are disabled and the aircraft only uses GPS for
positioning. The maximum flight speed is 44.7 mph (72kph). Intelligent Flight Modes are not available
and the aircraft cannot sense or avoid obstacles.
Note: In S-mode, aircraft responses are optimized for agility and speed making it more responsive to
stick movements.
T-mode (Tripod): T-mode is based on P-mode and the flight speed is limited, which makes the aircraft
more stable during shooting. The maximum flight speed, maximum ascend speed and maximum
descend speed are 1 m/s. Intelligent Flight Modes are not available in T-mode.
The Forward, Backward, Lateral Vision Systems and the Upward Infrared Sensing System are
disabled in S-mode, which means the aircraft cannot sense obstacles on its route automatically.
The aircraft’s maximum speed and braking distance significantly increase in S-mode. A minimum
braking distance of 98.4 ft (30 m) is required in windless conditions.
Descent speed significantly increases in S-mode.
The aircraft’s responsiveness significantly increases in S-mode, which means a small stick
movement on the remote controller translates into the aircraft moving a large distance. Be
vigilant and maintain adequate maneuvering space during flight.
Use the Flight Mode switch on the remote controller to switch between Flight Modes. Enable
Multiple Flight Modes in DJI GO 4 to switch between Flight Modes.

Return to Home
The Return to Home (RTH) function brings the aircraft back to the last recorded Home Point. There are
three types of RTH: Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH. This section describes these three
scenarios in detail.
Description
GPS
Home Point
If a strong GPS signal was acquired before takeoff, the Home Point is
the location from which the aircraft launched. The GPS signal strength is
indicated by the GPS icon (
). The Aircraft Status Indicator will blink
green quickly when the Home Point is recorded.
Smart RTH
If the GPS signal is sufficiently strong, Smart RTH can be used to bring the aircraft back to the Home
Point. Smart RTH is initiated either by tapping
button on the remote controller.
Exit Smart RTH by tapping
in the DJI GO 4 or by pressing and holding the RTH
in the DJI GO 4 or by pressing the RTH button on the remote controller.
Low Battery RTH
Low Battery RTH is triggered when the Intelligent Flight Battery is depleted to the point that the safe
return of the aircraft may be affected. Return home or land the aircraft immediately when prompted. DJI
GO 4 displays a warning when the battery level is low. The aircraft will automatically return to the Home
Point if no action is taken after a ten-second countdown. The user can cancel RTH by pressing the RTH
button or Flight Pause button on the remote controller.
If RTH is cancelled following a low battery level warning, the Intelligent Flight Battery may not have
enough charge for the aircraft to land safely, which may lead to the aircraft crashing or being lost. The
thresholds for the battery level warnings are automatically determined based on the aircraft’s current
altitude and distance from the Home Point.
The aircraft will land automatically if the current battery level can only support the aircraft long enough
to descend from its current altitude. The user cannot cancel the auto landing but can use the remote
controller to alter the aircraft’s orientation during the landing process.

The colored zones and markers on the DJI GO 4 battery level indicator bar reflect the estimated
remaining flight time. They automatically adjust according to the aircraft’s current location and status.
If the current battery level can only support the aircraft long enough to descend from its current
altitude, a critically low battery level warning triggers and the aircraft descends and lands
automatically. This cannot be canceled. If there is a danger of a collision, push the throttle up
and try to navigate away.
If the battery level is sufficient, the battery level indicator bar in DJI GO 4 displays the estimated
remaining flight time based on the current battery level.
If a battery level warning appears, take action as described in the table below.

Failsafe RTH
The Forward Vision System allows the aircraft to create a real-time map of its flight route as it flies.
If the Home Point was successfully recorded and the compass is functioning normally, Failsafe RTH
automatically activates after the remote control signal is lost for more than two seconds.
When Failsafe RTH is activated, the aircraft starts to retrace its original flight route home. If the remote
control signal is re-established within 60 seconds of Failsafe RTH being activated, the aircraft hovers at
its present location for 10 seconds and waits for pilot commands. The user may tap in the DJI GO 4
or press the RTH button on the remote controller to cancel Failsafe RTH and retake control. If no pilot
command is given, the aircraft flies to the Home Point in a straight line. If the remote control signal is still
lost 60 seconds after activating Failsafe RTH, the aircraft stops retracing its original flight route and flies
to Home Point in a straight line.
If the aircraft is further than 2 km or less than 50 m from the Home Point when RTH begins, the
aircraft will not retrace the original flight route and instead flies in a straight line to the Home
Point.
Note that GEO zones may affect the ability of the aircraft to retrace the original flight route.
After detecting obstacles during flight, the aircraft stops retracing the original flight route and
instead flies in a straight line to the Home Point.

Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom User Manual
RTH Procedure
Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH all follow the RTH procedure:
1. The aircraft adjusts its orientation.
2. a. If the aircraft is further than 20 m from the Home Point when the RTH procedure begins, it
ascends to the pre-set RTH altitude and then flies to the Home Point at a speed of 12 m/s. If the
current altitude is higher than the RTH altitude, the aircraft flies to the Home Point at the current
altitude. Forward and Backward vision systems are enabled.
b. If the aircraft is between 5 m and 20 m from the Home Point when the RTH procedure begins:
i. If the RTH at Current Altitude option is enabled the aircraft flies to the Home Point at the current
altitude, unless the current altitude is less than 2 m, in which case the aircraft ascends to 2 m
and then flies to the Home Point at a speed of 3 m/s.
ii. If the RTH at Current Altitude option is disabled, the aircraft lands immediately.
c. If the aircraft is less than 5 m from the Home Point when the RTH procedure begins, it lands
immediately.
3. After reaching the Home Point, the aircraft lands and the motors stop.

Obstacle Avoidance during RTH
Provided that lighting conditions are sufficient for the Forward and Backward Vision Systems to operate,
the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom senses and actively attempts to avoid obstacles during RTH. The obstacle
avoidance procedure is as follows:
1. The aircraft decelerates when an obstacle is sensed.
2. The aircraft stops and hovers and then ascends until no obstacle is sensed.
3. The RTH procedure resumes. The aircraft flies to the Home Point at the new altitude.
18
© 2018 DJI All Rights Reserved.
Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom User Manual
The aircraft cannot return to the Home Point if the GPS signal is weak or unavailable.
In Smart RTH and Low Battery RTH, the aircraft automatically ascends to an altitude of 65 ft
(20 m). Once the altitude is 65 ft (20 m) or higher, move the throttle stick and the aircraft stops
ascending and flies to the Home Point at its current altitude.
The aircraft cannot avoid obstacles during Failsafe RTH if the Forward and Backward Vision
Systems are unavailable. It is important to set a suitable RTH Altitude before each flight. Launch
DJI GO 4, tap
and then set the RTH Altitude.
During RTH, the aircraft’s speed and altitude can be controlled using the remote controller or
DJI GO 4, but the flight controller controls its orientation and direction of flight.
During RTH, obstacles on either side of the aircraft cannot be detected or avoided.
Landing Protection
Landing Protection activates during Smart RTH and the aircraft performs as follows:
1. When Landing Protection determines that the ground is suitable for landing, the aircraft lands gently.
2. If Landing Protection determines that the ground is not suitable for landing, the aircraft hovers and
waits for the pilot to confirm it is suitable to land.
3. If Landing Protection is not operational, DJI GO 4 displays a landing prompt when the aircraft
descends below 0.5 m. Pull down on the throttle for one second or use the auto landing slider in the
app to land.
Landing Protection activates during Low Battery RTH and Failsafe RTH. The aircraft performs as
follows:
During Low Battery RTH and Failsafe RTH, the aircraft hovers at 2 m above the ground and waits for
the pilot to confirm it is suitable to land. Pull down on the throttle for one second or use the auto landing
slider in the app to land. Landing Protection activates and the aircraft performs the steps listed above.
Vision Systems are disabled during landing. Be sure to land the aircraft with caution.
Precision Landing
The Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom automatically scans and attempts to match the terrain features underneath
during Return to Home. When the current terrain matches Home Point terrain, the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom
will start landing. The DJI GO 4 app will show a terrain feature mismatch prompt if matching fails.
Precision Landing performance is subject to the following conditions:
a. The Home Point must be recorded upon takeoff and must not be changed during flight,
otherwise the aircraft will have no record of the Home Point’s terrain features.
b. During takeoff the aircraft must ascend vertically 7 m before moving horizontally.
c. The Home Point terrain features must remain largely unchanged.
d. The Home Point terrain features must be sufficiently distinctive.
e. The lighting conditions must not be too light or too dark.
The following actions are available during Precision Landing:
a. Throttle down to accelerate landing.
b. Move the control sticks in any other direction to stop Precision Landing. The Mavic 2 Pro/
Zoom will descend vertically after the control sticks are released.

Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom User Manual
Vision Systems and Infrared Sensing Systems
The Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom is equipped with Forward, Backward, Downward, and Lateral Vision Systems,
and Upward and Downward Infrared Sensing Systems, providing omnidirectional obstacle sensing (if
lighting conditions are adequate).
The main components of the Forward, Backward, and Downward Vision Systems are six cameras
located on the nose, rear side, and the underside of the aircraft. Lateral Vision Systems are two cameras
located on either side of the aircraft.
The main components of the Upward and Downward Infrared Sensing Systems are two 3D infrared
modules located on the upper and underside of the aircraft.
The Downward Vision System and Infrared Sensing System helps the aircraft maintain its current
position and hover in place more precisely and to fly indoors or in other environments where a GPS

Calibrating Vision System Cameras
The Vision System cameras installed on the aircraft are factory calibrated. If the aircraft experiences
a collision, however, it may require calibration via DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic or DJI GO 4.
The most accurate way to calibrate the Vision System cameras is by using DJI Assistant 2 for
Mavic. Follow the steps below to calibrate the Forward Vision System cameras, then repeat
the steps to calibrate other Vision System cameras.
01
02
03
Point the aircraft toward the screen
Align the boxes
Pan and tilt the aircraft
When a vision system calibration is required, DJI GO 4 sends a notification. If a computer is not nearby,
however, a quick calibration can be performed in the app. Tap the Aircraft Status bar and Vision Sensors
to start quick calibration.
Quick calibration is only a quick fix for vision system issues. When possible, connect the aircraft
to a computer to carry out a full calibration using DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic.
Only calibrate on textured surfaces such as grass or when lighting conditions are adequate.
Do not calibrate the aircraft on highly reflective surfaces such as marble or ceramic tiles.
Using the Vision Systems
The Downward Vision System and Infrared Sensing System activate automatically when the aircraft
is turned on. No further action is required. When using the Downward Vision System, the aircraft can
hover precisely even without GPS.
The Downward Vision System is typically used in indoor environments where GPS is unavailable. The
Downward Vision System works best when the aircraft is at altitudes of 1.6 to 33 ft (0.5 to 11 m). Please
note that the Vision Positioning function may be affected if the aircraft’s altitude is above 33ft (11 m).

Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom User Manual
Follow the steps below to use the Downward Vision System:
T P S
1. Ensure the aircraft is in P-mode and place the aircraft on a flat surface. Please
note that the Downward Vision System cannot work properly on surfaces
without clear pattern variations.
2. Turn on the aircraft. The aircraft hovers in place after takeoff. The Aircraft Status Indicators flash green
twice, which indicates the Downward Vision System is working.
Using the Forward and Backward Vision Systems, the aircraft can actively brake when detecting
obstacles in front. The Forward and Backward Vision Systems work best with adequate lighting and
clearly marked or textured obstacles. To allow for sufficient time to break, the aircraft should not fly more
than 31 mph (50 kph) when flying forward or more than 27 mph (42 kph) when flying backward.
The Lateral Vision Systems requires better lighting and more textured or clearly marked obstacles, and
cannot sense dynamic objects, such as moving people, vehicles, tree branches, or blinking lights. The
Lateral Vision Systems are only available in some Intelligent Flight Modes and Tripod Mode. The angular
speed is limited to 24° /s and the lateral flight speed is limited to 18 mph (29 mph).
Lateral Vision Systems have limited ability to sense and avoid obstacles, and the performance
may be affected by the surrounding environment. Be sure to maintain line of sight with the
aircraft and pay attention to prompts in DJI GO 4. DJI takes no responsibility for any aircraft that
is damaged or lost while using Lateral Vision Systems.
The Vision System cannot work properly over surfaces that DO NOT have clear pattern
variations. The Vision System is only effective when the aircraft is at an altitude of 0.5 to 50
meters. Please note that the Vision Positioning function may be affected if the aircraft’s altitude
is above 33 ft (11 m).
The Auxiliary Bottom Light is automatically enabled when the environment light is too weak and
the flight altitude is lower than 5 m. Please note that the Vision System cameras performance
may be affected when the auxiliary bottom light is enabled. Fly with caution if the GPS signal is
weak.
The Vision System may NOT function properly when the aircraft is flying over water or snowcovered areas.
Note that the Vision System may NOT function properly when the aircraft is flying too fast. Fly with
caution when flying at over 10 m/s (32.8 ft/s) at 2 m (6.6 ft) or over 5 m/s (16.4 ft) at 1 m (3.3 ft).
Operate the aircraft cautiously when in any of the following situations:
a. Flying over monochrome surfaces (e.g., pure black, pure white, pure green).
b. Flying over highly reflective surfaces.
c. Flying over water or transparent surfaces.
d. Flying over moving surfaces or objects.
e. Flying in an area where the lighting changes frequently or drastically.
f. Flying over extremely dark (< 10 lux) or bright (> 40,000 lux) surfaces.
g. Flying over surfaces that strongly reflect or absorb infrared waves (e.g., mirrors).
h. Flying over surfaces without clear patterns or texture.
i. Flying over surfaces with repeating identical patterns or textures (e.g., tiles with the same design).
j. Flying over obstacles with small surface areas (e.g., tree branches).

Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom User Manual
Keep the sensors clean at all times. DO NOT tamper with the sensors. Do not obstruct the Infrared
Sensing System.
The Vision System may not be able to recognize patterns on the ground in low light conditions
(less than 100 lux).
If the aircraft speed exceeds 31 mph (50 kph), the Vision System does not have enough time to
brake and stop the aircraft at a safe distance from an obstacle.
If the aircraft experiences a collision, camera calibration is required. Calibrate the front cameras
if DJI GO 4 prompts you to do so.
Do not fly on days that are rainy, smoggy, or if there is no clear sight.
Check the following every time before takeoff:
a. Ensure there are no stickers or any other obstructions over the glass of the Infrared Sensing
and Vision System.
b. If there is any dirt, dust, or water on the glass of the Infrared Sensing and Vision System,
clean it with a soft cloth. Do not use any cleanser that contains alcohol.
c. Contact DJI Support if there is any damage to the glass of the Infrared Sensing and Vision
System.
The Upward Infrared Sensing System only detects straight line distances directly above the
sensor and not the entire aircraft. Additionally, large obstacles such as roofs can be detected,
but tiny obstacles such as leaves or electrical wires cannot. Fly with caution and do not rely
solely on the Upward Infrared Sensing System to detect obstacles above the aircraft.
Do not obstruct the Downward Vision System and Downward Infrared Sensing System before
takeoff. Otherwise, the aircraft cannot take off again after landing and will have to be restarted.

Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom User Manual
For optimal performance, it is recommended to use Hyperlapse at an altitude higher than 50 m and
to set a difference of at least two seconds between the interval time and shutter..
It is recommended to select a static subject (e.g., high-rise buildings, mountainous terrain) at a safe
distance from the aircraft (further than 15 m). Do not select a subject that is too near the aircraft.
The aircraft brakes and hovers in place if an obstacle is detected during Hyperlapse.
The aircraft only generates a video if it has taken at least 25 photos, which is the amount required
to generate a one second video. The video generates when a command is given from the remote
controller or if the mode is exited unexpectedly (such as when the low battery RTH is triggered).
It is possible to make a selection and adjust the flight speed and duration for Hyperlapse (when
using firmware v01.00.01.00 or above).
Note that the Lateral Vision Systems are enabled in Hyperlapse (when using firmware
v01.00.03.00 or above).
Task Library
Use Task Library to easily record flight paths, which can be repeated later.
QuickShots
QuickShots shooting modes include Dronie, Circle, Helix, Rocket, Boomerang, Asteroid, and Dolly
Zoom (only available with Mavic 2 Zoom). The Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom records a video according to the
selected shooting mode and then automatically generates a 10-second video. The video can then be
viewed, edited, or shared to social media from Playback.
Dronie: The aircraft flies backward and ascends, with the camera locked on the subject.
Circle: The aircraft circles around the subject.
Helix: The aircraft ascends and spirals around the subject.
Rocket: The aircraft ascends with the camera pointing downward.
Boomerang: The aircraft flies around the subject in an oval path, ascending as it flies away from
its starting point and descending as it flies back. The aircraft’s starting point forms one end of the
oval’s long axis, while the other end of its long axis is at the opposite side of the subject from the
starting point.
Ensure there is sufficient space when using Boomerang: Allow a radius of at least 99 ft (30 m)
around the aircraft and allow at least 33 ft (10 m) above the aircraft.
Asteroid: The aircraft flies backward and upward, takes several photos, and then flies back to the
starting point. The video generated starts with a panorama of the highest position and then shows
the descent. Ensure there is sufficient space when using Asteroid. Allow at least 132 ft (40 m)
behind and 164 ft (50 m) above the aircraft.
Dolly Zoom: The Mavic 2 Zoom flies backward and upward. It adjusts the zoom during flight to
keep the selected subject the same while the background changes.
When planning to use Dolly Zoom, first select the distance between the aircraft and subject. Be
sure that there is at least three times that distance available on the rear side of the aircraft so that
there is sufficient space to fly.

Flight
Once pre-flight preparation is complete, it is recommended to use the flight simulator in DJI GO 4 to
hone your flight skills and practice flying safely. Ensure that all flights are carried out in an open area.
Refer to the Remote Controller and DJI GO 4 sections for information about using the remote controller
and the app to control the aircraft.
Flight Environment Requirements
1. Do not use the aircraft in severe weather conditions including wind speeds exceeding 10 m/s, snow,
rain, and fog.
2. Fly in open areas. Tall structures and large metal structures may affect the accuracy of the onboard
compass and GPS system.
3. Avoid obstacles, crowds, high voltage power lines, trees, and bodies of water.
4. Minimize interference by avoiding areas with high levels of electromagnetism such as locations near
power lines, base stations, electrical substations, and broadcasting towers.
5. Aircraft and battery performance is subject to environmental factors such as air density and
temperature. Be very careful when flying 19685 ft (6000 m) or more above sea level, since battery
and aircraft performance may be reduced.
6. The Mavic 2 cannot use GPS within the polar regions. Use the Downward Vision System when flying
in such locations.
Flight Limits and GEO Zones
Abide by all laws and regulations when flying your Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom. Flight limitations are applied by
default to help users operate this product safely and legally. Flight limitations include altitude limits,
distance limits, and GEO Zones.
Altitude limits, distance limits, and GEO Zones function concurrently to manage flight safety when
operating in P-mode.
Flight Altitude and Distance Limits
The flight altitude and distance limits may be changed in DJI GO 4. The maximum flight altitude setting
cannot exceed 1640 ft (500 m). Based on these settings, the aircraft will fly in a restricted cylinder, as
shown below:

If the aircraft reaches one of the limits, you can still control the aircraft, but you cannot fly it any farther.
If the aircraft flies out of the max radius, it will fly back within range automatically when the
GPS signal is strong.
For safety reasons, please do not fly close to airports, highways, railway stations, railway lines,
city centers, or other sensitive areas. Fly the aircraft only within your line of sight.
GEO Zones
All GEO Zones are listed on the DJI official website at http://www.dji.com/flysafe. GEO Zones are
divided into different categories and include locations such as airports, flying fields where manned
aircraft operate at low altitudes, borders between countries, and sensitive locations such as power
plants.

Calibrating the Compass
It is recommended that the compass is calibrated in any of the following situations when flying outdoors:
1. Flying at a location farther than 31 miles (50 km) away from the location the drone was last flown.
2. The aircraft has not been flown for more than 30 days.
3. A compass interference warning appears in DJI GO 4 and/or the Aircraft Status Indicators blink
alternating red and yellow.
DO NOT calibrate the compass in locations where magnetic interference may occur, such
as close to magnetite deposits or large metallic structures such as parking structures, steel
reinforced basements, bridges, cars, or scaffolding.
DO NOT carry objects (such as cell phones) that contain ferromagnetic materials near the aircraft
during calibration.
It is not necessary to calibrate the compass when flying indoors.
Calibration Procedure
Choose an open area to carry out the following procedure.
1. Tap the System Status Bar in DJI GO 4, select “Calibrate”, and follow the on-screen instructions.
2. Hold the aircraft horizontally and rotate it 360 degrees. The Aircraft Status Indicator will turn solid
green.
3. Hold the aircraft vertically, with its nose pointing downward, and rotate it 360 degrees around a
vertical axis.
4. If the Aircraft Status Indicator blinks red, the calibration has failed. Change your location and try the
calibration procedure again.

The firmware update will take around 15 minutes. It is normal that the gimbal goes limp,
aircraft status indicators blink, and the aircraft reboots. Please wait patiently until the update is
complete.
Ensure the computer has access to the Internet.
Before performing an update ensure the Intelligent Flight Battery has at least 50% power and
the remote controller has at least 30% power.
Do not disconnect the aircraft from the computer during an update.
For safety, always update the firmware to the latest version when an update notification is shown
in DJI GO 4.
Firmware update notifications will prompt you to proceed with an update immediately or to
update the firmware within three days. If you choose to ignore the current firmware update, you
are required to accept the prompted disclaimer. You further understand and agree that the data
includes but is not limited to user selection records and may be uploaded to and maintained on
a DJI designated server.
The remote control device may become unlinked from the aircraft after updating. Re-link the
remote control device and aircraft.
