  1. The P4P has been taken out of production for some specific reasons and those are believed to be that the image sensor is no longer available, DJI have stockpiled enough to keep production of the lower volume RTK version going but here and now it’s believed this is the reason. This is the same cause the X4S has been dropped as well. As for will there there be a replacement it’s remains to be seen, the dev time needed to produce another camera for this model may not bring enough return now, this was one only camera in this size range with a mechanical shutter so it does leave a gap. the P4P is not a pro tool in the sense it’s like a Red camera however it’s was very good at what it did, at the end of the day it’s all about using the right tool for the job that gets the desired results regardless of costs.
  2. Usually that means the dealer has not registered the SN on the back end system at DJI.
  3. You rang lol. Ok the Agras is very different from any of the ususal models out there.The reason DJI provide very limited support is its meant to be all provided by the supplying dealer as I understand it. Op can you give some more info on the issue and what’s going wrong in the update, when and what’s the error ? If it’s the MG1-P or RTK then you can update via the App onboard via Wifi or Assistant 2 for Agras however this is not the same assistant as you have for mavic or the Inspire so make sure you are using this special assistant and not the common public one, this can be downloaded from Agras page for that model. if it’s failing over Wi-fi via the App try to use the Assistant on PC or Mac , often the failure happens because the RC controls link affects the Wi-fi and prevents the download of the file and using Assistant gets around this. Give us some more info as we can see what is going on, have you tried talking to your dealer on this ?
  4. It is using the FLIR lepton that’s 160x120 but couples with the RGB I’m MSX it’s able to produce surprising a good images even in SAR applications. While it’s able to refined on 640 it’s never going to compare to the XT2 or Vue Models is that native resolution but it’s actially surprises many. One of the DJI Ent dealers has been posting tons of real world footage and its very usable in these scenarios, not going to say it’s the best tool but based on package size and cost it’s actually very capable. Here is one of them here
  5. Motor direction is set by ESC wirein usually and that’s all preset on the M600, are the correct arms in the correct places ?
  6. The Pilot App is now listed however it aspears it’s only for M2E today. I was told it would support the M200 and it’s been confirmed it will but the release today only has M2E support I’m being told . I cant confirm this my self but if you download it you can double check. Sorry the info info we were originally given was full support but it seems they have not put that in yet, this weeks things may have changed that.
  7. I’m not going to disagree with a lot there Av8 and just to be clear I am a CAA licenced commercial operator in the Uk with full PFCO Incliding having osc’s from the standard permission and I’m am also very affected by this my self due to the restriction with in congested areas. Iv I’ve spend a large part of the last 24 hours getting my head around what this means for my self and other comercial users in the Uk and helping them understand that and yes it’s far from ideal and it’s a bit of a nightmare but I’m also extremely experienced in product failure and very public issue like this, I do understand and sympathise on how complex and difficult these things can be, there are times things are caused by companies own hardware and firmware and there are times when it causes by 3rd parties and no amount of prevention can stop that, the Samsung battery thing was an exsample of that, sometimes things just happen, no one wants it and certinally no one likes. Its not good and it’s going to cause issues but DJI know that and right now it is what it is, while you may think these comments are because it’s DJI but it’s really not it’s because of my experance in dealing with these kinds of things for well over 10 years, no matter if it’s a car, copter or the titanic failure is a fact of life and will happen, not every bug can be caught up front, not every failure can be predicted until it happens. A clasic was the NATS Server failure in the UK a few years ago where the entire UK airspace system went down grounding every flight due to a bug in the software, the backup server came up and went down again straight away with the exsact same bug beciase it was in place in both system with the exsact same set of circumstances at play, it had never been seen before and never happened, it was both unpredictable and largely unpreventable, the government went nuts but what can you do really in that case? What happens next is as important as what happened before and as the CAA are involved you can be sure DJI are doing everything in its power, this is the first time we have seen the regulator get involved and it’s going to be interesting moving forward with any kind of failure to see how they continue to react, no drone is fully redundant as we are far from being at manned aviation standards for the reliability but then we are far from that cost factor too. We would both agree that perhaps these things should cost 10x as much and have that aviation level of reliability but the larger question is can the industry sustain that when you have a race to the bottom for pricing, Hell I was old I was too expensive just the other day when I quoted £130 for a single aerial image of a property around the corner from my home, the only reason I quoted so low was I could have walked there and I would not have to have spent much time doing the site survey as I know the area very well, it’s a no win really it really is and a very interesting subject how far down it will go in the end. Anyway my goal was simply to provide the requested info, I know you and we realry see eye to eye and that’s for many reasons, here and now I’m simply try to help the guys affected if I can and see where it goes.
  8. Sorry about the bad packs, it’s possibly related but at this stage will have to wait for DJI to say more. Chuck I know your not a fan but why not let see what actually happens and what the acual cause is before getting the pitch forks ? Perhaps you may be less inclined the throw blame their way when the cause is released You never know. Your craft and many from all manufactures has components you use you nether made or made the firmware for so as with all things there are situations that may be out of your hands, they do mention there battery supplier in there statement so let’s see where that goes. I do know from the people I have spoken too is that Dji are doing everything they can here and just like many air craft related things it’s complex and not straight forward at all, saying they don’t have a clue is an opinion you can have but i can tell you it’s wrong and no matter what it is failure can happen as we have very sadly seen in the UK this week. The very fact there have been next to no reports of I2 falling shows this is complex and difficult as they used the basic same battery firmware on both the TB50 and TB55, there are tons of variables and things that can affect a craft as you well know your self and not all of them in your control. No one is saying this is good in any shape or form and I’m directly affected my self via my PFCO but they are doing the right thing here. Right now I strongly suggest users of TB50 and TB55 1: You make sure your firmware is all on the same level/version on both batteries and craft. 2: Only fly a freshly fully charged battery with in the day, don’t leave them sitting for days especially in these temps we are seeing now. 3: If your packs have been sitting for a while then cycle them fully in a safe way before a proper flight. 4:Watch your voltages in the App and set the lowest cell voltage to show on the home screen, I am always popping in and out of the battery screen in flight to check the cells but having that on the home is always a good little indicator. 4: I’d also set self discharge to 10 days and manage them manually a minute too. This is is all I have ever done and not had issues, I’m awaiting clarification from the CAA my self on the Congested Area thing but yes this affects many sadly including my self quite substantially but safety comes first and that’s all that matters.
  9. Just as a last bit of info it should be in the App Store Friday and it has full M200 and XT support Stay safe.
  10. Ok Pilot for IOS is coming very soon, it’s to be launched alongside the new Mavic 2 Ent model, as I said. I had not heard any noises about it but that does not always mean anything , I would have betted no but it’s clear I’m not a good gambler lol. I appoligse for the crap info as I do try to abound that but all the noises I had was no. Hopefully it it will be here soon for you, what I can’t confirm is that it will have total compatibly for the XT2 but I don’t expect it not to at this stage, the only reason I say this is it’s been geared towards the new M2E but I would expect and hope it to. Again sorry for the miss direction.
  11. Hold off on Android a minute. Possible incoming, that part where I said I may be wrong
  12. I would look at the Nexus as that’s as pure as Android gets. As as a final note I strongly suggest you make sure your craft and batteries are 100% updated to the latest firmware on the M200, if your at all not sure connect it to Assistant 2 and refresh the firmware with each set of packs fitted, I’m not saying you should always update however at this stage there has been some things with battery firmware that you need to make sure everything is the same.
  13. The basics are I would not expect to see the Pilot App it’s self for IOS. The M200 has been mostly aimed to be used with the crystalsky and that’s android based and any future custom devices will still be android based so IOS development on that I just don’t see coming as the hunger is just not there overall. CS works extremely well on Pilot and is a good option but if that’s not for you look at a good android tablet, Samsung I’m not too much a fan off because of the bloat they tend to add you can’t remove and prefer the cleaner nexus models. As I said I would not hold out for IOS Pilot tbh but there will be other options around mapping ect from DJI very soon for iOS but I don’t know what the XT2 support is with that as I can’t test that my self, to really get the most form the XT2 your going to want Pilot, I could be wrong but iv not even seen a whisper of Pilot on iOS specifically anywhere. One other note is Pilot should be out of Beta shortly, there are a few things I think they need to put in but doubt it will happen but the fist official release should not be far off now.
  14. Very nice well done. The Freewell ones are good filters.
