    Hi All
    I was out with H Tuesday evening.
    Climbed to 120 meters for a look and lost camera connection.
    I descended and waited for reconnection.
    I had to eventually reboot H and it connected again but lost the camera almost immediately.
    I tried re binding, cleaning contacts and re seating gimbal. Antennae tight. H would not reconnect again.
    I was now getting a Failed to initialize camera error and a green green magenta signal from cam.
    Next day, tried a different card and it did connect better.
    Flew last evening and got a disconnect-reconnect on the first battery
    but the second one flew without a problem.
    I wonder if the card is the problem or is there anything else I should look at?
    Any help would be great.
    Firmware is all up to date. H is a replacement but they sent back the old camera and gimbal.
    Shes a Euro H.

    It's a problem with the EU firmware, I also get these random disconnects although I haven't had one since I started doing this at startup:

    Go into system settings
    Hit refresh until the camera shows up in white
    select the camera and hit bind
    Return to flight screen

    I started doing this as some claim it speeds up the start up, I don't know about that but I have not had a disconnect since.

    Reports suggest that Yuneec are aware of this problem and working on a fix.

    Hi Gyro
    Thanks for the reply.
    I did the binding trick when it happened but it did not help.
    Might give H-Q a call. At least it will push for a firmware update.

    Guess I've just been lucky, The first few flights doing this I was using the stock antennas but the last few flights I have DBS fitted so maybe that is helping as well.

    There is a firmware update due out since the end of last week, it's supposed to address this issue amongst others.

    I was told last week that it was due to be uploaded by Friday, this week I was told the same thing, so I would expect to see it by today or tomorrow.

    Everyone in the EU seems to have this problem, mostly once the camera is connected it looses the connection again the moment the landing gear is lifted. How this got through QA is unbelievable, but should be easily fixed too.

    And the standard firmware is that the solution or not?

    Mine had the gear down and still had trouble.
    I tried cycling the gear too a few times without success.
    I suspect the gelded EU Tx power.

    Apparently from what I have heard is that this firmware update to be uploaded this week will be the solution to this problem. Also maybe it will have other improvements to the camera and compass.

    If this corrects the problem, what will we talk about?

    Old times, like when the camera kept disconnecting.

    hi,
    i did the latest update (from the 1st of september 2016) and i still have trouble that the camera looses connection with the st16. the image freezes on the st16 controller. i think is has something to do with the retraction of the landing gear?
    i have an EU version.

    does someone has the same problems, and has someone a sollution?

    with regards

    A the Netherlands
