Want to fly using FCC mode with NFZs removed on your DJI Mavic Air, Air 2, Mini, Mini 2, or DJI FPV drone instead of CE mode?
Then you’ll be pleased to hear that our friends at Drone Hacks have the answer.
Their new DH Companion app (Android only I’m afraid!) will force FCC mode on your drone.
It’s not modding the actual drone which means when you power off the drone and turn it on again, it’ll back back to CE mode, but their app makes it very easy to enable FCC mode, it’s literally just a couple of taps on your screen.
You simply start up the drone and your controller, force-close the DJI Fly or GO4 app, and launch the DH Companion app. With FCC mode then enabled, simply force-close the DH app, then launch your DJI Fly / GO4 app and when it asks if you want to switch your region, simply click NO
Don’t know if anyone has gone down this route, so I thought, what the hell.
I can confirm it works, but there is a caveat.
If you “unlock” the FCC on your android device using the DH app, then open the fly app on your android device, your good to go.
If you “unlock” the FCC on your android app then open the fly app on your IOS devise, the IOS app does not recognize you are in FCC, but it will still recognize you are in FCC if you go back to the android device. So no IOS support for this, no Ipad’s I’m afraid…
I did contact support before I purchased and they were unsure as they do not use IOS devises so are unable to test.
Just a heads up though if anyone wants to try the app, for testing purposes of course…
Yes they normally do. When a software update comes out, the software designers who designed the “script”
that enabled FCC have to find a way of rewriting the software to enable this. So it’s better not to update until the script has been found and rewritten.
