  1. This is driving me nuts!. My components are on and synched, but DJI Fly won’t work with either my tablet or phone. Assistant 2 on my pc (latest version) has found the Avata and updated software, but I can’t find anything which allows me to “activate!.

  2. Just bought a dji fpv drone. I’m having the hardest time trying to activate the goggles. If someone could point me in the right direction, it would greatly appreciated. Btw, I am using an iPhone 12 Pro Max.

  3. having a heck of a time activating. Keep getting a verification code, multiple times that won’t work. Any help would be appreciated

    1. What is the verification code? If you use an Android device, make sure you download the DJI Fly app on, not the app store. You can also try to activate it with a different device.
