Howto change video settings on an UpAir One V3 and V4

This post shows you how to change the video resolution on both the V3 and V4 UpAir One.
On the latest UpAir One (V4 with PX4 board) it’s different from the V3 (APM Board)

You need to hold down the photo Button, it will Take a Photo, but afterward read 2.7k instead of 4k in the top left corner. Do it again and it will change to 1440.
It could be that the resolution doesn’t change after the first try, try it again and it will change.
It is not a matter of holding the button 5 seconds, sometimes it can take a long time for it changes resolution, but it works! this depends on the drone itself, for yours it can be done in a few seconds, but for someone else it can take up to a minute… be patient with this.

  1. That is really funny. When I got my UPair One 2,7K it was in the 2K mode.
    The 4K mode is 3264×1836 pixel, so not UHD and only 25 fps.
    Thanks for that information!
