    If you install the DJI GO app, you'll need to install the new firmware too. The new firmware can also be used with the DJI Pilot app.

    I installed new app and updated ONLY the RC firmware. Not drone firmware. Have had two 12 min flights and everything went smooth as butter

    I'm running the new app(since the release) and older firmware, no issues. Upgrading firmware today.

    What's the point of updating the app and not the firmware? Does the app actually change anything yet?

    IOS auto app update took care of that for me, haven't felt like doing the FW until today. :D

    Edit, took 2 tries to update the bird. First try said file was corrupt.

    RC wouldn't upgrade via the app, gave me a message that my RC didn't support it. Had to do USB update and it worked fine, only took about 3 minutes.
