for my Mavic Mini I would like to know during flight, which band is used at the moment. On the top bar, there is a level meter shown, which shows the signal strength received from the drone. This is great!
As the drone is automatically switching from 2,4G to 5G during flight, I would want to know, when it does.
Maybe you might want to add a little letter besides the strength bar related to the used band, i.e. “2” for 2,4G and a “5” for 5G. There is still space beside the level meter.
This would have some advantage, if for example the revceiver level goes down during flight, one could quickly stick a booster antenna on the default antennas. There are yagi and parabol antennas available.
The problem here: You must know, which one to choose, as they are only working for either one band, 2,4GHz or 5GHz. You cannot use any antenna for both bands!
I know, it is possible, to fix the band in the application, so that either 2,4GHz or 5GHz is used, but this is not, want to do, as I never know before, which band is more stable.
It would be nice, if you could implement this feature, maybe even the possibilty to force a band by switching it during flight manually from 2,4GHz to 5GHz (however, this is just an idea, not sure, this might work at all).
Is anybody else interested in such a feature? Any feedback is welcome.
Best regards and happy flying!
