Certainly this issue needs everyone involved in flying DJI products to be aware of. I want to mention this from my own experience flying the Phantom and using an iPad mini: DJI GO App is an extremely capable and very demanding App. I used to have a lot of “green screens” and CPU overloads until I watch a video in YouTube where they explained the complexities of what is happening behind scenes while you fly and they made a couple of good recommendations. Set the mobile device you fly with in Airplane mode when you fly. Don’t run ANY other App or leave running any other task while flying. I followed those two recommendations and stopped having issues. Think about it, your mobile device is talking to your controller, running HD video downloads in real time, sending commands via controller to the drone, receiving GPS positioning from the drone and showing it in the screen and many other things I don’t have room here to tell you. So, think about it and be safe.Your DJI Drone could kill you or someone close to you.
Or at least do some serious damage to you or people near you!
Please send this serious warning to as many places as possible.
If you are flying with an Android device and initiate Google Assistant with “Ok Google” or “Hi Google” and you are flying your DJI drone with DJI go app your aircraft becomes totally out of control.
Take a look at this video.
I have been in constant contact with DJI, almost 20 emails for many weeks and they refuse to put out a general warning to DJI go app users not to engage Google Assistant.
Their response has been this.
“Kindly noted that I have updated the flightrecords as you provided back on MAR 21ST to the Field Application Engineering team…”
“As you mentioned, on your previous emails, it is unsafe for the people around. We appreciate your effort however to provide us with the needed records for our designated developers to review the flight and confirm your claimed issue with the DJI GO 4 app when used with the Google Assistant.”
DJI know there is a problem and a serious one. I know they are working very hard at solving the problem, but they are refusing to warn the public.
Please pass this warning to as many as you can.
