Altitude Hold issues - HoverflyPRO/GPS firmware v.4.6 r1, r2, r3


Per the link below, we are recommending that users not engage the Altitude Hold feature when using HoverflyPRO/GPS firmware v4.6rev1, rev2, rev3.

The problem being seen is not universal but it has occurred enough to warrant this recommendation until this issue can be fixed. We expect new firmware later this week.

Thank God! I was having so many issues that I wasn't sure if it was me or many of us. I was having the erratic control problem when GPS functions were engaged. On top of that I'm having some severe altitude hold issues. I'm glad it is being fixed.

Due to a scheduling conflict, we've had to postpone the beta test until Monday. Chances are very good that the update will be released a day or two later.

Also, a little advance warning: if you had to change your gain settings when upgrading to 4.6 from an older version, there is a very good chance that you will need to do so again with the new release.
