The company I work for bought a Matrice 200 a while ago. It has never been flown or registered.

1. Does DJI offer a "refresh" program for this bird like they do for the Mavic Air, etc. ?
2. Will the controller interface with an Android os or does it have to be an Apple ?
3. What is the best tablet/phone to use with the controller ?

Sorry for the questions but I have been designated to be the pilot in command to fly this.

Thanks in advance for replies and any other tips or suggestions

1. I do not believe so
2. Either operating system is fine
3. There are a multitude of threads covering this subject already ( find using the search function), but basically, any of the modern iPads (eg iPad Mini v5) running up to date iOS will work flawlessly.

Of more concern would be whether you are operating legally or not. You do not say what country you are in but in most countries a company cannot and should not just allow someone to operate a UAV without the requisite training, flight assessment and insurances in place.

Thank you for your response.

The reason I was designated to fly is that I am Part 107 certified (USA). I have experience with a Mavic Air but the 200 is a BIG step up.
I am familiar with LAANC and Airmap. The majority of the flying will be in class G

Discussed insurance this morning with the company.

The drone is set up for agriculture and speaking with that company rep I now know I need to have iOS. Mostly likely a mini 4, maybe a 5. They say all aspects of their app works best with iOS. Don't need to handicap myself from the start o_O

Again thanks for your prompt reply.

Another 200 question for persons that fly it. Where I will be flying the 200 wind is a pretty common occurrence .What is the maximum wind that you feel comfortable flying in ? Printed statistics can never replace actual hands on use.

As always thank in advance for replies

I was advised not to hesitate to ask questions so here I go again. On the controller for the 200 there is a switch lever on the right side of the RTH button. I went through the manual and tried YouTube but I am missing what the function of this switch is - does it just turn the RTH feature on and off

This is about all I have found in the manual

What firmware/software are you using to fly the 200. I am looking for just software for basic flying. I have sentera software but I want to be able to fly the 200 to learn it before doing field plotting, etc
