I am suddenly having an issue. No matter how long I wait (waited up to 45 mins so far) I keep getting yellow flashes on my Naza; tried doing advanced calibration and basic calibration and I am still having the same issue. Even went back to old firmware and then reinstalled 3.12 and I still can't get it sorted. Checked all my TX settings also, the assistant shows all my TX settings working correctly...

Fast flashing yellow is transmitter failsafe mode. Slow flashing yellow is esc warm up.

I finally got it going after doing advanced calibration twice. It was very odd that suddenly I started having issues...

That makes me feel better; I do find it odd how it suddenly happened though. I am still a bit nervous to strap on my NEX-5n; I have been delaying thinking DJI may release another firmware update.

In particular, I would correct the fisheye for wide stills with higher resolution than the GoPro example below. The GoPro jpegs are pretty limited compared with raws from the Nex. I also would use it for videos when I need a wide view - fisheye or corrected. I can't see how changing cameras on a gimbal or using two copters would be a better approach than using a Nex with this lens and the 16-50.

I have all of the rokinon primes and the fisheye. They are excellent quality, can't tell the difference between them and Canon L glass really. they get high ratings.
