One of the first things you have to have ready when you buy a DJI brand drone is the application for your Mac DJI Assistant 2. It is an application that debuted four years ago with the first drones of the brand, but now it is essential for their operation.
Not long ago I bought a DJI Magic Pro drone, a drone that has not stopped surprising me and is that in a very restrained and foldable size they have managed to manufacture a marvel that does not stop reaping successes.
One of the star characteristics of the products of the DJI brand is that it happens as with Apple products, that is, they can improve over time when the brand modifies its firmware and software. For this reason, the arrival of an application that could synchronize the device with a computer was necessary.
It all started with the Windows application, but DJI did not take long to realize that with Apple devices, applications crashed less and devices were updated without major problems. That is why they created DJI Assistant 2 for both Windows and Mac.
As I told you at the beginning, when you buy a DJI brand drone, you have to install the application that I want to show you today to be able to do the firmware and software updates. To do this you must download the application and for this you must go to the DJI page, select the model of your drone and then go to the download part on the drone's website.
You will be able to download the DJI Assistant 2 from several pages depending on the drone model you have, so if you enter the Magic Pro drone you could find the same app as if you enter the Phantom 4 PRO website. The management application is the same and what truly changes are the firmwares of the devices.
Once the application is installed, you must check the firmwares of the devices that make up the drone and that is, for example, in the Magic Pro you have to update the radio control, the batteries and the drone itself. It is a process that has to be done several times a year and is that DJI does not stop launching news for its drones.
Once the application is installed, you must connect the controller or the drone to the Mac using a UBS cable and at that moment open the application and turn on the drone or the controller, depending on what you are updating. At that moment in the DJI Assistant 2 window a gray icon appears with the name of what you have plugged in. It only remains for you to press the same and the system checks if there is any new firmware to proceed to download and update.
