    That part of the UI is from the DJI UX SDK, so we will report the issue to them.

    Jim, does your answer means "Don't worry, you can fly" ?

    If it doesn't show the issue in DJI Fly, you are good.

    Hi, I'm a new user to Dronelink (have used Litchi for 1.5 years) recently purchased a Dronelink account. Attampted to fly my first Mavic Mini Waypoint mission, ver simple just a spiral out to about 40 m. I see the weak signal message also as soon as the Phone S10+ connected to the Controller. During the approach phase at about 10m away I lost connection and the mini halted and hovered. 15 anxious seconds later I had a connection and I manually returned and landed, I reset the drone and controller and exited dronelink app and attempted the same mission with similar results. Again I managed to recoved the drone and land. I then flew with Litchi (although no missions) I do not see the week transmission message and teh drone did not lose connection even though I flew in the same location.

    This is a bit concerning, I am not sure if the Weak Transmission signal is related to the loss of connection. any Advice would be appreciated.

    PS. I turn OFF WIFI and Bluetooth on the phone when I fly the Mini to avoid interference. Also Dronelink has all permission ON and I don't have Litchi running in background

     

    Thanx Steve

    We believe there is a bug in the DJI UX SDK, which I don't believe Litchi is using.

    Thanks Jim,

    I will avoid missions with Dronelink for the Mini until I see an update. btw. Loving the mission capability with the MaviC Pro, many more features than Litchi waypoints.

    Does Dronelink upload missions to the Pro so it can fly even without the controller? or are the missions run from the controler, thus requiring a connection at all times during a mission?

    I have this same issue and after initial takeoff, it aborts the mission and the drone just sits there. No errors in the mission. Mavic Mini!

     

    Disappointing that it doesn't work.

    Got it to start the mission.. but it says my Galaxy S7 isn't fast enough. Not sure what to do as I don't want to use my S9 or buy another phone.  Still had the video transmission error on the screen.

    I have only flown about 4 simple missions and all of them I get the same yellow msg., "Transmission Signal Weak".  I had no problem with any of the missions, but like I said I only flew 4 very basis missions.  I don't know if this is related or not but one of the missions when it starts, for about 20 seconds the front of the drone jerks up and down like it's shaking it's head.  I have flown this mission 3 times and it does it everytime.

    Just purchased the App, just joined the group, just ran into the weak signal problem as everyone else ... did this issue ever get fixed? Are they still working on it?

    I recently purchased this app as it falsely says it supports the Mavic Mini ,however as soon you connect it gives the mesaage 'Image Transmission Signal Weak ' even when its just 1 metre away.So I am afraid to fly it as it has not given the clearance.I see that the issue is pending from the time Dronelink announced support for Mavic mini .Atleast they should not announce compatibillity with the mini until unless you can use the software with this device.Its been such a waste of money , should have gone for the Litchi.

    Did you read this whole thread? The error message is from the DJI SDK and it is false, but that does not mean Dronelink doesn't work. As long as DJI Fly is not reporting any errors then you can feel confident.

    Does DJI intend to fix this at all? I can confirm it is a ux sdk issue with preflightstatus widget. I've been using it too on my project and half the time its useless on mini. Dronelink works just fine and its great with the web app.

    I doubt it. They just let go the whole UX SDK team.

    Well that's a shame as it was great for RAD approach. :)
