    It's been a couple weeks or so now since I modded my Mavic Pro with the Super-Patch and FCC Mod. I think I can speak for 3 very significant benefits that I've experienced.

    1. Much stronger RC and video transmission signal
    2. Significantly improved range
    3. Nearly double the number of satellites connected
    4. Have not experienced a single "aircraft disconnected" episode since doing the mod.

    I'm so happy with with how this "Patch" has improved the performance of my Mavic, I forgot how to count!

    Is this the "NLD MOD Client 1.9.3.0" from No Limit Drones??

    It looks like the guys who created the DJI Super-Patch collaborated with the NLD guys because they refer to the NLD Client App to verify that the patch uploaded properly.

    I have the NLD-patched DJI Go App and still use it on the "Super-Patch", no problem. The main reason I switched to the Super-Patch mod from the NLD Mod is I really liked the addition of the Galileo Satellites system because it gives a much better GPS connection. And I like the FCC mod for its simplicity. The latest DJI Super-Patch now includes the FCC Mod.

    Oh...and the DJI Super-Patch is free...and does all the good things that NLD has PLUS the Galileo Sat System.

    Finally, because of the collaboration, I believe that you can still do all the other parameter tweaks using the NLD Client...which, I understand is now also free.

    I'll have to do some searching for that, And decide if I want to get off of the original 1.03.0400 on my AC. Never updated anything.
    Have a link there, buddy?

    Edit: OK, I found the modded Go app: I have this file: NLDGO4122.apk @215 mb.
    Still looking for the "Super Patch" file...

    I attached the documentation for Super-Patcher. I'm pretty sure that the documentation will have active links to access the firmware and patch. Presumably, you're flying a Mavic Pro 1 or MP Platinum. Only works on that model right now. Also, requires firmware V01.04.0300.

    I had that version for NLD, but even if it's already onboard your bird, the installation process will re-flash it.

    I just confirmed that the attachment (Super-Patch White Paper) DOES have active links.

    By the way...if you DON"T have the NLD Patched DJI Go app, installed DON'T BOTHER! You don't need it.

    Nope, Mavic Gen I, still with the original firmware from 2 years ago, still on
    1.03.0400, out of the box. Never updated anything.
    Period.
    Everything I read about with DJI firmware updates was not to go past 1.03.0700, last "stable" version, without the gimbal resets, NFZ, quizes and other krap, and still able to "backrev", I believe...

    I had issues with DJI firmware updates as well. When I back-dated to 01.04.0300 everything good.

    THX! for the heads up.
    I think I will try the NLDGo412 app first. I am not really to enthused about flashing my bird. No too interested in super-max range or super-max speed, just would like the Galileo gps support for signal reliability, I shoot in some mountainous areas,
    and the FCC mode (maybe, runs a bit hotter I have read?) for punching thru the trees/brush.

    I'll know at lunchtime..

    Good luck! Agree with Madmaqz, brett8883 very responsive and helpful when I did the install on my bird.

    Also, I'm pretty positive that firmware v01.04.0300 is necessary.
