Aside from early reviewers and lucky customers who have managed to get their hands on DJI’s latest sub-250g drone, few people have DJI’s new Mini 3 Pro. But already DJI is releasing a public update for its DJI Fly app to add support for the Mini 3 Pro, as well as a firmware update for the Mini 3 Pro that unlocks the full feature set DJI announced at launch.
Firmware version 01.00.0100 for the DJI Mini 3 Pro adds the support for True Vertical Shooting, FocusTrack, Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) 4.0, Hyperlapse, MasterShots, QuickShots, QuickTransfer, Panorama capture and the listed shooting modes: 4K/48p, 4K/50p, 4K/60p and 1080/120p. DJI says image quality and flight stability have also been improved.

To install firmware version 1.6.1 of the DJI Fly app, update the app on the mobile platform your device uses or download directly from DJI’s website. Once the drone is powered on and connected to your mobile device, you should be asked to activate the Mini 3 Pro drone, unlocking all the features. If you’re using the DJI RC-N1 remote controller, you should be updated to firmware version 04.14.0117, while the DJI RC, a new controller released alongside the Mini 3 Pro, should be set to firmware version 01.00.0100.

Mini 3 Pro orders are still a few weeks out for most, but if you’ve gotten your hands on one, or know someone who has, leave us a message in the comments and even share some photos or video if you’ve managed to take it out on a shoot already.
