4.6 Experiences... is your upgrade ok is it me???

My testing experiences of 4.6...

Flashed, calibrated twice as per the printed out guide to 4.6. Twice because the ODS horizon was 5-10 deg off.

I have put a few batteries through my VM-6 now. The VM flew better on 4.3.802. Less twitchy in the hover and flying around. I have quite a flat hover throttle curve but you wouldn't think so... I have to be really careful landing.
From altitude, I am afraid to come down too fast in case it oscillates. I have tested several gain settings in AL and manual... I don’t trust it yet.
AL seems a bit off compared to last nights settings - which appeared off compared to yesterday mornings settings. All saved properly by downpowering with AL engaged.
Lots of AH testing - and I use AH when solo shooting. I tried (on the 10C TX ATV) from 10 to 35. On 15, it only dropped 7 meters before it settled. Greater ATV than that, it came down 20m in a hurry. It used to hold to 1m without a drop.

OSD: The Battery readout is nice but I use a Quanum 2.4G battery monitor so it's no essential. The artificial horizon is off level before and after arming. I wouldn't want to use it for fpv.

New setup client - the tilt sliders are intermittent and setting up the gimbal was hard work - and not consistant.

I am rolling back to 4.3.802 tonight. I have a media demo next Thursday and I need a nice flying machine - like I had before I flashed it last Saturday.

Are you using the v4.6 setup client to do the accelerometer calibration? This is required to get a correct calibration.
You must manually download it here.
