Important Note: Before turning on the aircraft always make sure you have removed the gimbal clamp and it's free to move around unobstructed.

Download the latest version of DJI Go to your smart device, you need DJI Go V3.0 onwards to support the Mavic.

The Mavic will be shipped with firmware already installed but this may not be the latest, Its highly recomended that you update your craft before you fly, read the DJI update release notes and understand what the update should do and how to perform it before starting.

The Mavic firmware update is performed via the Go App or DJI Assistant 2 on PC or Mac, the Go App is done wirelessly and you will update both the craft and Remote controller this way, DJI have produced a video showing this process and I have link it on my blog page for the Mavic here

Looking at the spec it charges at 3.83A so i would say a TB47 would charge in about 1h45m and around 1h20 for a TB47, there is no info on if it has storage charge or other features as of yet.

DJI have also released a nice carry case that will hold 2 x Hex chargers allowing you to charge up to 12 packs at once.
