apparently, according to a post on a Yunnec FB page to address certain camera issues.
I couldn't find anything about it on Yuneecs FB page. 需要安全验证
Do you have a link to the FB page or post
The page is here though it may be a closed group 需要安全验证

Spoke to Yuneec today apparently there is a firmware update next week
A reply by a Yuneec Dealer said
For the camera I believe.
It would be nice if the firmware would move the GPS on/off to the nice unused Aux (B2).
Using the touch screen to turn it on/off is a PITA.
PUT BACK THE CENTER CROSS HAIR !!!! ( or at least, give us the option to have it or not !!! )
Give us Time Lapse for mapping and other things...
Personally I hope they fix it from dropping out eight or 10 times when you're in a photo shoot
DO you mean the St16 losing connection with the camera?
If so mine hasn't done that since the last firmware upgrade. It did it a lot before.
I think having it on the aux would make it too easy to accidentally knock and turn off gps,fine if your experienced a nightmare if your not,maybe they should give you the option of programming it to the aux if you want it there,but forcing it there is a bad idea in my mind.
Did the person you spoke to elaborate or just said there an update due next with no further details?
There has got to be a solution for video dropping out with the slightest obstacle, such as a tree getting in the way. The only way I see is to boost the ST16 video signal. And yes, I've seen all the YouTube videos of guys doing this, but there doesn't seem to be a comprehensive kit with step by step instructions. Anyone know of such? I would much prefer to do this myself, but at this point, I would have thought there would be online services to do this as well.
I haven't tried it but I can't you reassign the buttons on the ST16? I thought you could. Probably wrong and don't have mine in my office with me to check
Hopefully it will be the update we have asked for,my camera is properly focused and takes good video and pictures but still takes an age to connect and most flights it drops out for a good 2 minutes before it reconnects which then resets all my camera settings so I have to set it all again and this happens when the H is barley 20 feet away from me (Europe software is installed as I'm in uk) my q500 never did this ever!! and connected quickly.
So if this gets fixed I'll be very happy.
Not sure where you're flying but I've never had drop out or range issues...I don't fly in urban areas.
Are you using stock antennas, I've never had any dropouts or loss of camera...what kind of conditions are you flying in...urban?
This issue is mostly related to the EU version, maybe because of the the 25mW restriction, usually will not happen with Standard firmware version.
Snap - I have the same problem. May send it in during the winter if not fixed. Could make ST16+ mod if it solved it. Richard Gilmore has a video on YT.
Like I said mine has been much better (no loss of connection to camera) since the new update. If I use Exposure times over a second it drops out for a couple seconds while it takes the pic.
I read the other day that if you have a cell phone turned on in your pocket that it can affect it.
