When DJI released its highly-anticipated Mavic 3 drone series back in November, over 3 years after the Mavic 2, there was some initial disappointment. One of the biggest complaints was that many of the features it boasted in the press materials weren’t yet available. Updates were promised for January 2022, and today the world’s leading drone manufacturer made good of them by releasing a v01.00.0500 firmware update for both iOS and Android.

DJI’s Fly app powers the Mavic 3 series and upgrading to v.1.5.8 will allow users to access the following features:

The ability to capture hyperlapse clips and follow subjects with ActiveTrack 5.0 were added in December. DJI introduced a new RC Pro, an upgrade from its SmartController, with the Mavic 3. DJI Air 2S owners will now be able to use the remote when they upgrade to the latest firmware. Huge thanks to Official DJI Owners Group on Facebook for the tip.
