DJI’s update-a-thon resumed on Wednesday, with the release of (yet another) firmware update – this time for the Mini 2 – as well as a new version of its DJI Terra uber-mapping technology. These two updates raise the total number of software upgrades at the organization to five this week.
Although enhancements to Mini 2 operation appear to be minimal compared to the considerable corrections in the current iteration of DJI Terra, the dual product revamps largely iron out wrinkles observed in prior versions. According to the company’s press statement, the latter – which includes updated V01.04.0000 aircraft and V04.11.0032 remote controller firmware, as well as updates to V1.5.10 DJI Fly App iOS and V1.5.10 DJI Fly App Android – would allow for “optimized flight safety.”
However, where the Mini 2 update is minimal, the reworked DJI Terra appears to have a substantial impact.
Professional users can organize missions, collect relevant data, thoroughly map regions being examined, and analyze all information gathered to build perfect digital models using the one-stop-shopping program that interfaces with linked drones. The product was last updated in late January, and it now has a lot of new features. It now has a second cyber-goose to resolve any issues that were produced or persisted as a result of the upgrade.
According to the manufacturer, the new DJI Terra 3.3.4 version:
· Fixes issue where users with online licenses cannot use premium functions offline within first two days after restarting DJI Terra.
· Fixes issues where outputs are layered after enabling Optimize Point Cloud Accuracy when processing LiDAR data collected from multiple flights.
· Fixes issue where DJI GSR or DJI Pilot cannot properly display downsampled DSM files generated by 2D urban reconstruction.
· Fixes issue where drawings are incorrectly displayed when modifying results of identified objects in Agricultural Application.
· Fixes issue where the language of quality report always defaults to English after setting language option for DJI Terra when installing for the first time.
· Fixes issue where operation stutters when modifying results of identified objects in Agricultural Application.
Users of DJI Terra will have to be aware of a number of limitations or required interventions in order to continue using the software once those tweaks are completed, though these appear to mostly involve unfinished modeling projects that were awaiting completion when the upgraded version was downloaded.
Phantom drone versions 4, 4, Pro, 4 Pro V2.0, Pro + V2.0, Advanced, RTK (Monitor RC), and RTK (Monitor RC) are all compatible with the new generation, according to DJI (No-Monitor RC). Matrice 300 RTK + H20 Series and Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced UAVs only support a few DJI Terra functionalities.
