All the news from the latest update of the DJI Fly app

DJI has released a new update for its drone flight app, DJI Fly. Version 1.11.4 of the application contains a number of new features for DJI's flagship camera drones: Mavic 3, Mavic 3 Classic and Mavic 3 Pro.

The first and perhaps the most interesting feature made available for the Mavic 3 series of drones with this update is Vision Assist. It allows you to view live footage from the aircraft's front, rear, left and right vision sensors during flight, essentially identifying potential obstacles and helping you navigate more safely around them. To learn more about this feature, including how and when to use it, you can check out this detailed post.

Additionally, the DJI Mavic 3 series can use augmented reality (AR) technology to display the drone's route home (pictured above) and its starting point. When you are able to visualize the aircraft's return path in the real environment, you can be better prepared to avoid any potential obstacles and fly more safely.

Another interesting feature that arrived with the new update to the DJI Fly app is called Frame Guide. This feature allows you to mask the multi-aspect ratio during video recording. In practice, Frame Guide shows in advance how the footage will look when it is cropped later, and this leads to better framing of shots, especially when trying to capture content for vertical media like Instagram and TikTok.

Furthermore, the Mavic 3 Pro triple camera drone can now do much more with its mid-range camera. DJI has unlocked several smart features such as QuickShots, MasterShots and Sphere Panorama for this camera. Additionally, the medium-telephoto camera now supports 4K 24/25/30fps recording mode for night videos.

The tech giant has also added D-Log M and HLG color modes for the Mavic 3 Pro's telephoto camera.

You must also update the aircraft's firmware to the latest version in order to use the new features of the DJI Fly app.
