I updated the firmwre and went to the club and had 6 flights with telemetry on my flyfly mb339

I also tried those kingmax batteries that I havent heard many good reviews...
When I got down they were just warm.. what gave me the face of fear is when I saw the min/max Rx voltage.. max was 6.1v but min was 4.0v...

so close to a brownout... unless spektrum did something about it on these ar8000 receivers...

on my nanotech packs min voltage was 5.6v so no probs there.

Did you hit the "clear" button after you hooked up the battery?

I have 3 of the ICE 100's and ended up using a separete BEC (CC PRO 20) for that same concern.

It still works. Mine went off three times between two transmitters that I was updating and backing up models to SD cards last night.

Leaving for an indoor flying session in about 30 min. We'll see how the update does.

Enjoy! Andy
Some will very much enjoy the fact that nothing new has been added and so nothing to fear by upgrading and probably why this update is NOT labeled as BETA.

Other then G-force telemetry option added all the rest of the stuff are changes to existing thing and issues being fixed.

G-force?
G is the gravitational constant but not the g-force.

No, the sensor is named "G-Force" (capital F). It measures g's, not G. I'm pretty sure we got the right g notation on the screens. If not, remind me!

Harry on this occassion it's the batteries..
they are 2 4s 4200mah 25c which they actually are not 25c
with the 4s 4500mah 35~70c nanotechs the lowest voltage recorded on the receiver was 5.6v under full motor stress..
I'm gonna use those batts in my rclander panther which has a separate life for the receiver..

If you are using esc bec set for certain voltage and it can't deliver you may have other issues then the battery used.

Plenty of voltage from 4s for the bec to deliver 5-6v or what ever it's programmed for.
