DJI Air 3, Mini 4 Pro finally get FAA approval for remote ID compliance

Months after their marketing, the DJI Air 3 and Mini 4 Pro drone models have managed to obtain the Remote ID declaration of conformity from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Remote ID, as you probably know, is a feature that allows a drone in flight to provide its identification and location information to other entities. The FAA likens it to a “digital license plate” for a drone. Most drones operating in U.S. airspace must be equipped with this capability because federal agencies need a mechanism to locate the operator when a drone appears to be flying unsafely or in a location where it is not authorized to fly.

Both the Air 3 and Mini 4 Pro had native support for remote ID transmission when they were released in July and September 2023, respectively. However, the FAA had not approved their compliance statements.

This has changed: official approval certificates are now available for download from FAA website .

It's worth reiterating that the FAA pushed back the Remote ID rule's enforcement deadline to March 2024. But DJI has steadily released firmware updates to bring some of its older drone models into the Remote ID compliance network, because the government agency expects operators to comply with the standard's requirements as soon as possible. Help is especially offered to those who have trouble sourcing additional drive modules. So if you can adhere to the rule by simply updating your drone's firmware, there is no real excuse for non-compliance.

The most recent DJI drone models that have included Remote ID transmission capabilities are the Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.
