Charging the Batteries

Although new drone day is exciting, and we want to get out and fly immediately, the first thing that will need to be done, is to charge all of the batteries that come in the various packages and combos, including the remote controller batteries.

RC-N2 and DJI RC 2 Controllers

Although the remote controller might have approximately half power when initially opened, it is important to fully charge the remote controller.

As is the case with previous DJI Mini drones, including the Mini 3 Pro, the Mini 4 Pro does not include a power adaptor.

For the quickest charging speeds, it is recommended you purchase a 30-watt charger.

With a 30-watt charger, you will be able to charge a controller through the battery hub, as well as the drone’s batteries.

You can either purchase DJI’s branded charger or any 3rd party charger you may be comfortable with.

If you decide to go with a single 30-watt charger, instead of one with multiple ports, when you plug the 3-battery charging hub up to the 30-watt charger, then use a 2nd USB-C cable to connect the remote controller, the Mini 4 Pro batteries will always charge first.

Only after the batteries have fully charged will the remote controller begin to charge.

Tip: If you do not have batteries in the hub, then the RC will charge normally. To get around this, it is advisable to either have a 2nd charger, specifically for the RC, or a multiport charger.

To charge the standard RC-N2 controller, plug the included USB-C cable into the bottom of the RC. The LED indicator lights will begin to blink, signifying the remote controller is charging.

To charge the DJI RC 2, with the 5″ integrated screen, the USB-C charging port is located in the port to the right of the Micro SD card slot.

Plug the USB-C cable in and the controller will begin charging.

Mini 4 Pro Batteries

The Mini 4 Pro uses the same Standard and Plus battery options as the Mini 3 and Mini 3 Pro.

The Mini 4 Pro gets approximately 34 minutes of flight time with the Standard battery option and 45 minutes with the Plus battery.

The difference in flight times between the Mini 3 Pro and the Mini 4 Pro may have to do with the extra processing and power needed for the omnidirectional obstacle avoidance system in the new Mini 4 Pro.

With the Mini 4 Pro, as with the previous Mini 3 Pro, there are 2 ways in which to charge the batteries.

The 1st Method: This is for those who purchased the Mini 4 Pro with only one drone battery, having not opted for the Flymore combo.

The Mini 4 Pro battery can be charged while installed in the Mini 4 Pro.

Locate the USB-C charging port in the rear of the drone. Insert the provided UBS-C cable into the Mini 4 Pro and then into a 30-watt charger. The battery will begin charging.

The 2nd Method: If you purchased one of the Flymore combos, you will be able to charge all 3 batteries, in succession, not simultaneously.

To do this, insert the batteries into the Flymore combos charging hub and connect the included USB-C cable to a 30-watt charger (not included).

The batteries will then charge individually, one after another.

If you have a fly more combo and also purchased an additional battery (as I have), then you can charge 3 batteries in the charging hub and use a separate USB-C and 30-watt charger to charge the additional battery in the Mini 4 Pro itself.

I use the charger that I have specifically for the DJI RC to charge my 4th battery.

SD Cards

While the Mini 4 Pro does have 2GB of internal storage, whether you have decided to get the standard Mini 4 Pro kit with the RC-N2 controller, or with the DJI RC 2, you’ll want to purchase an SD card if you’d like to record lots of videos or photos.

If you purchased the DJI RC 2 kit, there is also an SD card slot in the remote controller. This is used for screen recording.

If you don’t do screen recording, however, you can store an SD Card in the DJI RC 2 as a backup, just in case the Mini 4 Pro’s SD card is left in a computer at home.

To insert an SD card into the Mini 4 Pro:

With the back of the Mini 4 Pro facing you, insert the SD card into the SD card slot (to the right of the USB-C port), with the gold pins facing upwards.

Using a thumb or fingernail will aid in getting the card in.

Just beware that the SD card slot is spring-loaded. If your nail slips, it could cause the SD card to fly out of the slot.

To insert an SD card into the DJI RC 2:

With the bottom of the DJI RC 2 facing you, insert the SD card into the SD card slot (to the left of the USB-C charging port) with the gold pins facing downwards.

Like with the Mini 4 Pro, the DJI RC 2 SD card slot is likewise spring-loaded.

Below is a list, direct from DJI, of recommended SD cards:

  • SanDisk Extreme PRO 32GB V30 U3 A1 microSDHC
  • Lexar 1066x 64GB V30 U3 A2 microSDXC
  • Lexar 1066x 128GB V30 U3 A2 microSDXC
  • Lexar 1066x 256GB V30 U3 A2 microSDXC
  • Lexar 1066x 512GB V30 U3 A2 microSDXC
  • Kingston Canvas GO! Plus 64GB V30 U3 A2 microSDXC
  • Kingston Canvas GO! Plus 128GB V30 U3 A2 microSDXC

Flight Software – DJI Fly

Aside from ensuring all batteries are charged, to fly your Mini 4 Pro, you will need to use DJI flight software.

Flight software is an app used by either a smartphone or electronic device and connected to your remote controller, which enables the Mini 4 Pro and remote controller to communicate, essential for flight control.

The software that works for the Mini 4 Pro is the DJI Fly app. If you have a DJI RC 2 combo, the DJI Fly app is pre-loaded on the remote controller.

If you are using a separate electronic device with the RC-N2 controller, you’ll need to download the DJI Fly software.

Where to Download DJI Fly

If you are using either an Android or iOS phone or tablet, the links to download the DJI Fly app are as follows:

Additionally, from your smartphone or electronic device, you can do a Google Search for “DJI Download Center”.

In the results, choose DJI Fly and you will be brought to the software downloads page.

Note: the DJI Fly app for Android is only available online at the link above, and is no longer available in the Google Play store, whereas the iOS version for Apple devices is accessible via the App Store.

Setting up your DJI Account

Now that you have the DJI Fly app installed, it is time to set up your DJI Account.

You can either do so from within the app on your cellphone, or using the DJI RC 2.

If you have a DJI RC 2:

STEP 1: Turn on the RC by pressing once on the power button, then immediately press and hold the power button.

After the DJI splash screen appears, you should be brought to the main home screen.

You’ll need to connect to WiFi if setting up a DJI account through the DJI RC 2.

STEP 2: To turn on WiFi and connect to a network, double-swipe down from the top of the DJI RC 2 screen.

This will bring up a screen with a notification window on the left side, and a setting window to the right.

STEP 3: Press and hold the WiFi icon, as would be done on an Android or Apple phone. This will bring you to the Network Select screen.

STEP 4: Select your network and input the WiFi password if there is one.

Exit out of the screens back to the main screen and follow the steps below for setting up a profile if you have an RC-N2.

If you have an RC-N2

STEP 1: Without being connected to the RC-N2, from a cellphone or smart device launch the DJI Fly app and go into Profile .

STEP 2: Once in the Profile Screen, go to Log In.

STEP 3: Input the phone or email you would like to register with and be sure to check off the “I have read” section at the bottom.

STEP 4: Create your DJI Account by setting up a password for the email address you are using to log in to your DJI Account.

STEP 5: Enter the Captcha info and submit.

You’ll now be brought to the main profile page. You will see you have been set up as a generic DJI User.

STEP 6: To change your name and profile picture, tap your current djiuser_ name (this will bring you to the Profile details page, and you can change your DJI username to whatever you’d like, as well as upload a profile picture.

Navigating DJI Fly

It’s now time to go into the DJI Fly app and get familiar with flying for the first time.

Connecting to the Fly App

With the RC-N2 Controller:

  • STEP 1: If you are still in the Fly app, Exit the app. Connect your smartphone to your RC-N2 controller, as seen below.
  • STEP 2: Open the DJI Fly app and turn on the RC-N2. To power on the controller, press the power button once, then long-press-hold until the RC makes a power-on signal. The lights will also flash.
  • Step 3: First, unfold the arms and legs of the Mini 4 Pro and remove the gimbal cover. Turn on the Mini 4 Pro by pressing the power button once, then press and hold the power button and the Mini 4 Pro will turn on.

With the DJI RC 2 Controller:

If you created your DJI Profile with your DJI RC 2 and the RC is already on, turn on the Mini 4 Pro.

First, unfold the arms and legs of the Mini 4 Pro and remove the gimbal cover. Next, press the power button once, then press and hold the power button and the Mini 4 Pro will turn on.

The Home Screen/Flight View

The main screen within the DJI Fly app houses all the important flight information you will need for a flight.

At a glance, you can see (along the top):

  • Aircraft Battery percentage – flight time remaining
  • RC (Remote Control) signal strength
  • Obstacle Avoidance mode – whether it is off, set to bypass, or hover
  • Number of locked satellites (it is best to fly after 7-12 satellites have been locked)

If you press the battery percentage icon, while in flight, you are given more detailed information regarding:

  • How many minutes until RTH (return to home)
  • How many minutes until the drone force lands
  • How many minutes until the batteries are completely depleted

At the bottom of the app, you’ll see the following:

  • How fast you are flying
  • How far out the drone is from your current position
  • How high the drone currently is AGL (above ground level)
  • Drone positioning (Map)

By tapping the Map icon (bottom left – small up-arrow), you can get into 3 different Map views:

  • Radar
  • Small Map view
  • Large Map view

Now that you are familiar with the main screen, we will talk about the various in-app options that affect flight safety.

In-App Options

To get into the many Fly app options, press the 3-button menu at the top-right of the screen.

In the options, you will see the following tabs:

  • Safety
  • Control
  • Camera
  • Transmission
  • About

For our intent and purposes, we will go through the tabs that are specific to getting up in the air safely and take a few pictures and videos.

OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE

This is one of the more important options that need to be set correctly and has an impact on those new to flying drones.

The Mini 4 Pro now has omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, meaning it can sense obstacles to the:

  • Front
  • Back
  • Top
  • Bottom, and
  • Both sides

There are three options for setting obstacle avoidance behavior: Bypass, Brake, and Off.

  1. OFF – Basically, this means that the top, bottom, front, rear, and side sensors are inactivated, which, unfortunately, does allow you to fly your drone into any obstacle that might be in the Mini 4 Pros flight path.

    Why would anyone want to turn these obstacle avoidance sensors off?

    That would be to get close to objects and fly in tight areas that would otherwise not be possible with the sensors on, as the Mini 4 Pro would stop upon sensing the obstacles in the immediate flight path.
  2. BYPASS – this enables the Mini 4 Pro (when flying in a straight line) to go around an object currently in its way. The Mini 4 Pro will pick the best path to do so.
  3. BRAKE – when enabled, the Mini 4 Pro will stop and continue to hover when an obstacle presents itself. You will then be able to determine the best course of action to take to get around the object.

RADAR MAP

When on, this option will give you a real-time on-screen view of how far objects are in front of, on the side of, and behind the Mini 4 Pro.

This is actually a great option to have if you are flying with the obstacle avoidance system off (like I normally do), as you will be presented with audible and visual alerts when close to objects, without being slowed down.

» MORE: DJI Mini 3 / Pro – Map and Radar Explained (Video)

FLIGHT PROTECTION

Flight protection, like obstacle avoidance, has very important options and should be immediately set.

In the Flight Protection tab, you can set the Maximum Height the Mini 4 Pro can fly, Its maximum flight distance, Advanced RTH (Return to Home) Options, and the Auto RTH Altitude.

Max Altitude – In the United States, as specified by the FAA, the maximum altitude a drone can fly is 400ft AGL (Above Ground Level).

However, there are some exceptions to this, such as when flying around high structures (buildings, towers, etc.).

To stay in compliance, it is best to set the Max height at either 400ft or just shy of it, so you won’t have to worry about breaking the law while in flight.

Max Distance – Also, in the United States, the FAA has mandated that drones stay within visual line of sight (VLOS). This is subjective to how far a person can see without the aid of binoculars.

We suggest setting the Max Distance to “no limit” and just taking care to keep an eye on where the Mini 4 Pro is at all times.

As you look through the options more closely, you’ll see mention of RTH (Return to Home).

RTH is a function built into most DJI drones that, when activated (either manually by the operator or automatically at RC disconnect), the Mini 4 Pro will stop what it is doing and make its way back to you.

Advanced RTH – This is a newer option in the DJI Fly app. There are two options: Optimal and Preset.

  • Optimal allows the Mini 4 Pro, during good lighting conditions, using the obstacle avoidance sensors, to ascend/descend to the best height to return home, given the immediate surroundings.
  • Preset will set the Mini 4 Pros RTH to a predetermined altitude of your choosing, to avoid colliding with obstacles when in low-light situations

Auto RTH Altitude – This is also very important. If the RTH height is not set at least higher than the highest object where you are flying, the Mini 4 Pro is in danger of crashing into said object.

Some choose to have their RTH height set to 400ft and just forget about it.

We suggest setting your RTH to 30 or so feet above the height of the highest obstacle where you are flying.

Setting your RTH in this manner can prove to be safer for manned aircraft that might be flying in your immediate area (i.e. helicopters, seaplanes, etc..)

COMPASS and IMU

When flying for the first time with a new drone, it is important to calibrate your Compass and IMU.

The compass (and IMU) is used for the drone’s positioning, just like a standard hand-held compass.

If the drone compass is not calibrated or calibrated correctly, it could result in the drone flying erratically or the loss of the drone (in worse-case scenarios).

Oftentimes, when flying in the same general area, the Mini 4 Pro compass would just need to be calibrated once.

If you fly in vastly different geographical areas, or far from home, but in the same state, calibrating the compass is recommended.

To calibrate the Compass or IMU on the Mini 4 Pro, while in the Safety tab go to Compass or IMU and tap Calibrate and the Fly app will walk you through how to do so.

In addition, you may be prompted by the Fly app to calibrate either the Compass or IMU if it is deemed necessary, like when using the Mini 4 Pro for the first time.

In these cases, you would follow the simple on-screen prompts.

ADVANCED SAFETY SETTINGS

An essential safety setting that should be done regularly, based on your situation and where you are flying, is setting the Mini 4 Pros behavior for when the signal is lost.

There may come times when, due to environmental issues, there is signal loss between the Mini 4 Pro and the remote controller.

This might happen in congested areas or just out of the blue, on occasion.

There are 3 actions the Mini 4 Pro can take upon signal loss:

  • RTH
  • Descend
  • Hover

RTH – When signal loss is detected, the Mini 4 Pro will ascend to the predefined RTH height, previously mentioned earlier, and return to the drone operator.

DESCEND – With this option, the Mini 4 Pro will descend, to the point of landing. This could be a viable option when flying your Mini 4 Pro in windy conditions, while over land.

Many drone owners (not just Mini owners) have stated that this option has saved quite a few DJI drones, where RTH would have caused the drone to get lost in excessive winds at higher altitudes.

HOVER – This will allow the Mini 4 Pro to hover in place when the signal is lost. This is ideal for flying indoors or in areas with a lot of tall buildings or skyscrapers, where RTH would inevitably cause a crash or loss of the drone.
