I’m sure Mavic Air 2 owners aren’t flying their drones as much as they’d like these days because of the pandemic, but that isn’t going to stop DJI from adding new features to the craft they released just four months ago.

If you’ve a Mavic Air 2, know that firmware v01.00.0340 has just dropped a few days ago, bringing along a bunch of new features such as Safety Flight mode, up to 4x digital zoom and 4K hyperlapse.

Here’s the full list of additions, according to DJI:

  • Added Safety Flight Mode. The aircraft avoids obstacles automatically and will not respond to commands to fly left or right.
  • Added 4K Zoom Mode, which supports 2x digital zoom when set to 4K 30/25/24 fps.
  • Added 2x digital zoom when set to 2.7K 60/50/48/30/25/24 and 4x digital zoom when set to 1080P 60/50/48/30/25/24 in video mode.
  • Added 4K resolution in Hyperlapse.
  • Optimised FPV mode for gimbal.
  • Optimised shooting performance when flying forward in Sport mode. Adjust the flight attitude to avoid propellers unexpectedly showing up in the camera view.
  • Optimised Hyperlapse. Added ability to pause shooting during Hyperlapse, increased the number of waypoints to 45, and added support for Task Library.
  • Optimised ActiveTrack when tracking vehicles at low altitude.

The update can be easily applied through the DJI Fly mobile app or DJI Assistant 2 for Mavic desktop app.
