I don't think it was the screen printing on the board thta was the error. More likely an issue with the chip that controls the serial for the GPS input. I would say some were programmed to have the t and RX go to certain pins on the board, while others were reversed. Accidently most likely.
Either way it was dam annoying.

Hi all,

I would like to know which Firmware you think is the best one? I was using 1.208, maybe since 1.208 some good stuff was added.

Cheers.

Why would there be any difference in flight characteristics, have you read the change log for 1.230 before asking stupid questions?

OK that might have been a bit harsh but has there ever been a problem with how the Rabbit fly’s & has that ever been changed in any firmware, NO.
It’s the other functions mainly GPS that have changed in new firmware’s & they are what have been improved in this latest release, they actually work now!

I'm selling my Rabbit with GPS on ebay. I have to many FC's and I seem to be more interested in Arducopter so the Rabbit is just sitting. It has the latest firmware and like Nebstress said it flies very stable and has with every firmware release. I've never had any problems with it that weren't operator induced.

Take extra care to compass calibration
It has something to do with your compass
