What's the general feeling out there on the latest Yuneec updates. I've been overseas without my H for about 7 weeks and have still got the previous version, which is working flawlessly. Is it safe to upgrade now? Any thoughts appreciated!
Unless you fall for the new features - drift etc, I would hang on as rumour has it there is another update to sort out the free glitches supplied with the last update coming very soon. NB: Not everyone affected the same or even at all by last AutoPilot 1.28.
The latest firmware has been a success for most, some have had issues with drifting (Calibrating the H and the ST-16) seems to have solved most of those issues. We have had a few people complain that they have lost ability to use the RIGHT stick during flight, and a few have reported issues during landing where the H will only come down to around 10 feet or so and then not want to lower any further. When I upgraded, I flew my first flight on a tether.
I would recommend calibrating everything after the update. Capt, made a great video explaining the process here: Reference Helps
Always rebind, even if it seems to work. I think this has caused a lot of problems. Folks think because they are connected that everything will work as before. We don't know what changes are made when they upgrade firmware but in my experience, it can definitely affect control of the aircraft if you don't rebind.
After installing the most recent update I was getting drift and odd behavior; I did not calibrate my H after the last couple updates. After calibrating the compass and accelerometer my H is now solid with the new update, no issues at all.
Ok, then please point me to ST16 calibration in Typhoon H that you obviously see and all of us don't.
And I actually did rebind and made half a dozen compass calibrations after this last update....nevertheless drifting and other strange behaviours are still there. In one point I had 2 good flights so I thought I fixed it by reinstalling FW2.25, and then another flight completely destroyed my confidence again. I hope I can revert back H firmware to 2.21 and hopefuly fly normaly while this new update comes.
