    I never noticed it before, but perhaps it did do it? My first flight after the new update, my landing gear would not raise up. After flipping the landing gear switch a couple more times, they finally went up!. I then raised them up/down a few times and all works fine!.
    What I am now noticing is:
    I have the normal flashing Purple light in "Angle Mode", but when the landing gear get all the way up and stops, I get one quick flash Orange and then back to Purple, also when lowering the gear to land, once it fully extends to landing position I get the same one time quick flash of Orange and then back to Purple flashing again!.
    It' fly's fine, and so far no issues!.
    Has anyone else seen this quick flash of Orange at the completion of each landing gear up/down, it is almost like it's a signal that it has fully lowered or raised?
    Thanks!

    Mine no longer does this as of the recent firmware upgrade. It did it with the previous firmware upgrade. The on that was on the site for awhile and removed. it would do it just as you described... Never had any issue with loss of signal or GPS, etc...

    I wouldn't apologize its been discussed before but not with the new firmware! It needs to be addressed as you saw my post today My landing gear would not come down after the orange flash TWICE!

    My landing gear would not raise after the firmware update. One leg would move about 1/2" the other would do nothing. I didn't notice the lights. I put a little bit of pressure on the legs and tried again and this time they retracted and came back down as they should. Before this I never had any glitches with my landing gear.

    I'm glad it's resolved Brian ! Yeah, I was going to do the same, but just did the last flight and it was back to normal! Odd!

    I looked at my files yesterday after noticing it, but all looked normal and if we contact Yuneec, I am sure they will state it happens on some and is normal and of no concern?:confused:

    For the record I have had no issues as described above, everything works fine after the firmware update. I am very pleased with my TH Pro and looking forward to future updates.

    I thought you got you LG to work? Is it still acting up? I have had them stick after updates and after bumping them gently, why, but they remain fine! I hope yours are not stuck still!
