RC800...power drain when OFF...and where is latest firmware?
Been looking around for a solution...
I just bought an RC800 FPV monitor. Overall pretty happy with it.
Last night I left a 3S flight battery battery plugged in with the monitor turned OFF...woke up to a DEAD battery (charger says "low voltage" and won't charge it).
I have two problems:
1) "Auto power off" does not work...I suspect this is because the monitor is not recognizing that there is no signal after I turn off my transmitter...the monitor does NOT say "no signal", which seems to be a requirement for it to start the auto-power-off countdown, but that's just a guess.
2) Even with the monitor OFF, it'll drain a battery DEAD...I have seen references to someone attaching a power meter, and saw the same power drain whether the unit is OFF or ON...not good.
I have firmware version 1.2.11, and thru a lot of searching, found firmware version 1.2.13 here:
But I have no idea if this is the latest firmware, or if it will fix anything. I hesitate to do the upgrade without knowing.
Anyone know of a firmware version that fixes this power issue and where to find it?
