Finally, after the long wait it happened. The 1.9 update is now released and the masses rejoiced. So what is new with this update you ask? Well, we have Mavic 2 support with NFZ, firmware flashing among other things.
Then at long last we have more functionality for the Mavic Air as in firmware flashing. We will continue to release new mods for the Mavic Air as we finish them.
Another thing worth mentioning is the complete rewrite of the NLD MOD Client. This has resulted in the client being faster in connecting with the drone, flashing fw's, reading parameters etc.
Firmware detection has also been given an overhaul so we hope to be able to reliably identify firmware versions of your drone moving forward.

NLD Bug Bounty Updates
Since we now have the MP2 added as a supported drone in NLD, we have a claimed bounty, the first one we have paid out on. The final total of the Mavic 2 root came in at $5,042, all of which will be going to the contributors of the root method.
We are really happy with the way the programme ran, and hope it lends some credibility to the programme, we aren’t just sitting on a beach sipping cocktails with the bounty money! Your generous donations to this cause have spurred on some talented people to give us the goods to add the MP2 to NLD.
As for what’s next? We will be launching new bounty target as we would always like to have at least three targets at once as well as a treat for people who have already donated to the bug bounty.
Anyone who has donated $100 or more will receive a free NLD license key. We feel this is a fair way to reward our larger donators for their support, we really hope you enjoy this little thank you and continue to contribute so that we can reach more bounty targets and ultimately make NLD better for you, our customers!

18-04-19 Update & FAQ's
Since the release of NLD 1.9, we have had literally hundreds of support tickets, many of them asking the same couple of questions. To save on confusion, the common questions and answers are listed here. Please read this before submitting a ticket.
- It has come to our attention post release that these older OS's have trouble with NLD's new COM port drivers. We are working as we speak on a fix and hope to have it released very shortly. Please bear with us until this time and keep an eye for a new blog post/release with the fix in it. Alternatively, use a modern OS such as Windows 10 64 bit as this should work fine. Due to the massive ammount of support tickets, we kindly request that you dont submit a ticket with this problem unless it persists after the soon to be released update.
- If your Mavic Pro 2 is currently on 01.00.0300 or higher, please use Assistant 2 to downgrade back to 01.00.0200 (NOT 01.00.0100 as DJI removed the 01.00.0100 FW from their servers and your downgrade will fail), then use NLD to go back one more step 01.00.100, then your'e good to go.
- We do not have a version of NLD Go4 working with the MP2 yet due to the protection mechanism DJI use on their newer Go4 apps. Please use the latest official DJI Go4 app. Yes, we know this means you miss out on FCC, but this is the primary reason its not shows as a supported mod on the NLD birdmap, were looking at alternate methods.
