Because DJI hasn’t really prompted (other than a YouTube video stealthily posted back in January) the Storm, or DJI Studio Service (there is no reference to either on DJI’s…

Latest DJI Mavic 2 Firmware Update Adds Dual Remote Control Mode


The latest firmware update for the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom drones introduces Dual Remote Control Mode (introduced on the original Mavic Pro) and fixes a couple of minor issues affecting GPS information on still images and gimbal control.
