What does Payload on DJI-RC mean

Hi, what does the payload button do on the DJI-RC?
The reason I ask is I quite often fly in woods and use propellor guards.
Thanks … Rod

Send a screenshot of the payload button with the drone connected to the RC as I suspect the option will not be there when it is connected

Thanks, I will tomorrow

Payload Mode is an automated feature that detects added weight
This weight could be from propeller guards or any other payloads you may have added. Once detected, you will get a notification, and the drone’s flight will be limited in terms of altitude and range.


@Raider Thanks Mick, I just wondered as I sometimes use propellor guars when I fly in the woods.

@Sparkyws Yes, I fully intend to become an Insured member in the next couple of days, (watch this space) I just wanted to be an associate member to see what it’s all about first.

Thanks … Rod

Did you do the test to see if payload mode is available with the drone connected :thinking:
