DroneSense is designed so that organizations can proactively monitor the status of their hardware. One of the key elements of this is firmware.
In general, avoid installing firmware updates immediately upon their release, especially for updates that cannot be rolled back to previous versions. DroneSense monitors these updates, and we will inform our users if we identify any issues that interfere with DroneSense or other functionality.
We generally recommend that users be conservative when choosing to perform firmware updates. It is best practice to review release notes before installing.
CAUTION: Always perform test flights before flying a mission on new hardware or immediately after a firmware update.
Updating DJI Firmware
For most users, open the DJI Go or Assistant apps for your device to update your firmware. The software will scan your device and verify the firmware. For more information, refer to the DJI documentation for your device.
NOTE: Be sure to check with your local administrator if your organization follows a different update process.
Battery, Gimbal, and other Device Updates
When updating a DJI drone, the DJI Go or Assistant apps will check the firmware for any other devices or batteries connected to the drone. Any required updates will be prompted to the user and will complete after the drone updates.
