To ensure the best possible flight experience, it is important to regularly update the DJI Mavic 3 firmware to the latest version.
Firmware updates add new features to the drone, gimbal, camera, and remote controller. They also contain fixes to fix software bugs.
You can update the Mavic 3 firmware via the DJI Fly app or a computer using DJI Assistant 2 (Consumer Drone Series).
Make sure your drone’s battery level is above 20% before updating.
How to update Mavic 3 firmware using the DJI Fly app?
First, turn on the aircraft and remote controller, and make sure the two devices are paired. When the remote controller is connected to the Internet, the app will automatically check for firmware updates for the aircraft and remote controller.
When the firmware update notification appears, click the notification to open the update screen, and then click Update.
During the update process, do not turn off the power or close the application. The aircraft will automatically restart after the update is completed.
