    I know this has been discussed and the consensus is that you CAN NOT change the name you assigned your P4. I just switched to iOS and while exploring the differences, I came across a Device Name option that apparently allowed me to change the name. Hmmm. Excellent!

    It's a new feature in the latest version of DJI GO. I guess DJI finally got tired of people asking support how to change the name :)

    Apparently. The option shows up for my P3S. Now I gotta come up with a new name!

    It is bad luck to rename a ship!
    Ask any mariners.

    It's also bad luck to get your Phantom wet. Ask any Phantom pilot ;)

    Well...just went in and changed the name of my aircraft, but in the flight records section of the GO app, it still shows the old name. I closed and restarted the app and it made no difference. Has anyone else noticed this? If this doesn't change the name that you originally gave it, what exactly does it do?

    Flight logs under the previous name will remain there however new flights should be recorded with the new name.

    OK, that makes sense. Guess I need to fly, huh?

    Update: after I flew, ALL records were updated to reflect the new aircraft name. Yay!

    Now I learn this! I got a new bird this week that I had to name. I sat there in my office chair for 30min trying to decide on a name, knowing I'll never be able to rename it.

    Hallelujah. Finally!
