I wonder if anyone out there know how to change the name on the drone not the ssid but the name of the drone you can see the name if you look up the flight records on the dji go app and it'll show a picture of the drone with the name below it I done it once but I can't remember how I did it

DJI must be able to do it somehow on their end. I've seen a few people post about asking them and they always refuse to do it for some reason.

The newest version of the app will let you change the name as Justin pointed out. Then, after you fly, all the records will reflect the new name.

I couldn't find the "Device Name" option on my current version of DJI GO (Android 2.8.3) so I messaged Tech Support at DJI,
They said the name is permanent.
Here is a copy of the email they sent back:

Dear David,

Thank you for contacting DJI Technical Support.
Please be advised that once you assigned a name to your unit, upon activation, you cannot re-name it. That will be its official name

Thank you for your understanding.
Best Regards,

Jenny

You can change the name of your drone (at least on the P-4) and it's very easy. Connect DJI Go with the controller and drone. All the way right on the top is three dots that activate the General Settings. At the bottom above the "About" is Device Name; enter the new name and save.

I keep seeing this, but I don't have that option with the current djigo software. Litchi allows a name change, but not djigo according to both my attempts and dji customer service. Did you actually have this work for you Rick?

Yes it did work for me. I couldn't think of a name (female) while I was signing in on the software ware so I gave it a ridiculous "Henrietta". Got to be worse name ever. DJI support told me it couldn't be done, but I lucked out and now Henrietta is Hawkeye II. Make sure everything is connected and on and you're in the camera communicating with the rci/drone.
