Thanks for that tip.
"Tool" is greyed out currently 'cause I don't have the WKM connected yet. Will check later if "height limit" is indeed there.

Yep the new firmware is all good. Tested it on a f450. And cs 6. Will try it on the s800 tomorrow or so.

There is defiantly a new algorithm in this fw seems like it calculate wind speed or other things then switch To a suitable stabilisation mode by it self.
I notice it on take off from the prop wash hitting the ground copter sense it's movements then adjusts to its surrounding conditions.

No bias talk. It's the first time I have seen my copters fly so smooth and spot on even in moderate wind.

I have to pat Dji on the back for this new firmware. Seems there are getting better at programming.

Sounds like good news Hexa!! I have heard that this firmware was developed off the back of the recent 72hour tests DJI have carried out? I will check it out in the next couple of days

Your 550 doesnt appear to rotate? just pitch forward and lose height...

I never finish anyth
My hexa also dipped to the side that lost the prop. I did some throttle feathering and careful yawing while full stick in the opposite direction of the failure. I was able to glide it down.

I'm going out to Home Depot right now to buy Ny-lock nuts! hopefully I won't have to test the new firmware.

Actually, waiting on a replacement MC. Hope it's on the way!
