    Has anyone figured out the login/pass for the DJI RE500 range extender? Once connected to it via WiFi it's available at http://192.168.1.2/ or SSH.

    I presume the user is root and I've tried most of the usual stuff for the password including: admin, default, password, the MAC address, etc. Anyone know what it is or how to reset it? I don't think we can put the extender in failsafe mode because there isn't a 'configurable hardware button'.

    Any ideas?

    The range extender does have a reset button used for binding the extender to the camera.
    There may be a way to use that button to get into fail safe, or perhaps put it bind mode and use your laptop to spoof the camera so the unit binds with your laptop instead of the camera.

    Page 16 of the user manual gives directions for binding.
