DJI are requiring all DJI drone pilots to register their drones with them this week. If not there will be restriction on your drone.
The latest update from DJI which comes along with the app update, means you need to register your drone with them – a simple task so don’t get caught out.
The most recent communication from DJI says:
“If this activation process is not performed, the aircraft will not have access to the correct geospatial information and flight functions for that region, and its operations will be restricted if you update the upcoming firmware: Live camera streaming will be disabled, and flight will be limited to a 50-meter (164-foot) radius up to 30 meters (98 feet) high.”
According to the DJI website they say:
“DJI will soon introduce a new application activation process for international customers. This new step, to take effect at the end of next week, ensures you will use the correct set of geospatial information and flight functions for your aircraft, as determined by your geographical location and user profile. All existing flight safety limitations, such as geofencing boundaries and altitude limits, remain the same.
Even if you have registered when activating your aircraft upon purchase, you will have to log in once when you update the new version of DJI GO or GO 4 App. If you have forgotten your password since your initial login, you can reset it using a function within the DJI GO and DJI GO 4 apps.”
This is for all DJI drone pilots, whether you are a new or old drone owner the update must be completed.
