DJI WK-M Feature Wish List


This is my Suggestion Box for requested features in future DJI WK-M firmware upgrades.

The goal here is for positive suggestions for improvements, No Bashing Please!

Please feel free to add. I think it is a good idea to separate between firmware updates which I would expected without additional cost, and feature upgrades that will likely be an add on.

I would like to see:

Firmware updates:
  • Motor Arm/ Disarm feature to prevent runaway failsafe in the case of accidental power up with the Tx off. Please match the current multicopter standard, throttle down and right to arm, throttle down and left to disarm
  • Failsafe upgrades - Allow user to set RTH altitude, and Hover time before descending to land.
  • The ability to save/load model settings to my computer from the WK-M assistant software.
  • The ability to select between several sets of settings on the WK-M using Tx stick commands so I can have calm, windy, settings, or separate settings for my different cameras available without having to hook up to a computer.
  • The ability to optimize with a preference to favor GPS hold, or stability in the software settings
Optional Add On:
  • A telemetry module that will overlay gps, alt, and battery information onto a video stream. Without the need for a waypoint base station.

Good idea.

I agree with all of the above, but would add one more to reduce, or eliminate the lag on the camera gimbal servo outputs. This is one area where the mk controller still excels.

I'd like to see a 'motor test' functionality in the Assistant software. Similar to how MK does it. It will allow you to select a motor and run it at a low power to verify the proper motor/esc is connected into the correct port and also verify rotation of the motor is the correct direction. Having to turn them all on at once is dangerous to do in the shop on a workbench.

A heading hold of some sort. The ability to fly always facing one direction.

I like this one the most.

Have it on my MK and use it almost everyday.

How about a wireless connection (bluetooth)between laptop and FC?
