Anyone else get one of these emails

ITS REGARDING INFLIGHT POWER FAILURES

Important Safety Announcement for all M200 Series Users for the CAA

Hi

I am writing to inform you of a new safety notice put out by the CAA on Friday 26 October.  It applies to all users of the DJI Matrice Series 200 drone.

If you do not own or use one of these drones you may disregard this email.

For users of the DJI Matrice 200 series drone, we wanted to make sure you are aware of this safety notice. You should read it carefully and note how it applies to you.

Full CAA Safety notice

There are four key points to be aware of:

    In accordance with Air Navigation Order article 257 and 257(2)(c), operators of a DJI Matrice 200 are hereby directed not to fly or permit any flight that involves overflight of any persons at any height until further notice. 

     In accordance with Air Navigation Order article 253, any element of a permission based on an Operational Safety Case (OSC), issued by the CAA to an SUA operator which permits the operation of a DJI Matrice 200 series SUA to be operated:

    - within 50 metres of any persons; 

    - within 50 metres of any, vessel, vehicle or structure which is not under the control of the SUA Operator or remote pilot of the SUA;

    - over or within 150 metres of an open air assembly of more than 1,000 persons;

    - using EVLOS is provisionally suspended until further notice. 

    Firmware updates. The Safety notice mandates the updating of the battery firmware. COPTRZ would recommend going further and ensuring ALL firmware relating to your drone be updated and kept up to date as this is best practice.

    Emergency services operators may continue to operate under General Exemption E 4506 (ORS4 No. 1233), but with additional consideration on the decision to proceed, especially where overflight of person(s) may be involved.

The CAA has advised that this notice will remain in force until further notice.

COPTRZ has informed DJI and the manufacturer is investigating the issue.

We will keep you informed of any changes that may occur.  If you don’t already do so, please follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn so that you may receive notices like this sooner from us.

Yours sincerely

Steve Coulson

It's always best to go back to the source and in this case it does appear to be a genuine UK CAA Safety Notice.

You will find it here :

I think everyone who has a DJI product that uses their software has got one, but this email refers to the M200

Nope - the Safety Notice was issued by the UK CAA, not DJI.

The DJI website has somewhat less :

There is an article on bbc news that Police have grounded their Matrice 200s and reported an issue to CAA.

Safety Notice SN–2018/008 has just been superceded by Safety Notice SN–2018/009.

/008 was titled "Small Unmanned Aircraft - DJI Matrice 200 Series In-Flight Power Failures"

/009 was titled "Small Unmanned Aircraft - DJI Battery TB50 and TB55 In-Flight Power Failures"

It identifies the affected battery pack and extends the safety notice to the Inspire 2 model.
