Small update:

The "top brass" have received the request and suggestion email I personally sent and they will take it into consideration. Lets not expect changes over night. However, DJI has always taken ideas into consideration and implemented them. From the XP 3.1 autopilots to the Ace One to present controllers etc.

This is a good thing lets be patient. I will post any updates I personally receive to the consumers as always.

Jumping off my soap box to get orders out and UAV's built. Actually, I really need to finish my coffee first.

Make sure the IMU is at least 3 inches away from the GPS.

Here is my first video upload. Not good quality video and several nervous movements from a newbee pilot (me) but pretty smooth for this 1,3 kg bird.

I was happy because finally could rid the jello effect.

Go to functions, and select a switch on the output of your choice.
There will be something like Gear, Flap, AUX right now, touch that and you can select a switch or dial.

Gents,
Just a thought: If the DJI flight controller module is causing enough EMF to knock out the GPS, then they really should shield both the flight controller module and the bottom of the GPS module with MuMetal or similar EMF shielding to prevent this. You might want to add that to the list...

For those with Android phones there are several similar free EMF detection and measuring applications that you can install from the Market to visually see the amount of EMF produced and to test the results of shielding or placement and braiding of the wires in order to optimize your GPS signal and compass accuracy. I use the Magnet-O-Meter. The EMF Hazards Detector and Max Magnetic Field Detector are good for this testing on multicopters too.

Cheers,
Jim

For me the issue is solved needed another hour on the balcony and got full lock down. Anthor start up it was picking up after a couple mins. Funny though since i never had these issue with my other two GPS module and this module was mounted on a frame that already had a full setup on it and back than not showing the same behavior.

Is there some sort of mix or something to program to make it work?
