How to Update your DJI Mavic Air Firmware


Here at Uplift, we know we drone on (punny) about how we’re all about customer satisfaction– but we really do mean it, we’re all about giving a helping hand when we can.

We know that Firmware updates can be frustrating and annoying – so we’ve broken them down for you into this simple 13-step guide.

Before you begin the update, make sure that the aircraft’s battery level is more than 50%.

1. Power on the aircraft and remote controller.
