Loaded fine, had to rebind the camera once, did compass cali and ripped it out 1/2 mile and back around, no issue worked good!, and like the new instant access to adjust exposure and white balance! Did not try the trim(Cruz Control feature yet) So far a happy camper!:D

Good report. Them birdies came through for you, huh. keep it up, DC.

BTW, right now there's a heck of a geomag storm going on, possible effect on GPS and other Sats and Ham Radio. K is 5 or 6.

Flew at 6 PM, no issues. So excited never thought to check for them, not sure it matters if it did, I am sure it would be on the 107 information and tests if the FAA had proof that KP/Flares matter!! But you can never be to SAFE! Ray, you update yours yet?:cool:

Just make sure to calibrate your compass, all the Yuneec techs and supervisors I spoke with DO RECOMMEND and so DO I!, Hope this does not start a thread war on why you that don't, don't, but please don't, just don't and then don't complain if you crash! LOOOOL!:confused:

Flew two batteries today after installing this latest firmware upgrade from the Yuneec support page. No issues. I think it connects faster and some of the "twitchiness" may be reduced. At least those are my perceptions. I do like the "Horizontal Cruise" and some its future possibilities for very precise, slow flying.

The new screen capture is nice, too. This from when I was testing the new "Horizontal Cruise."

Have not tried it as of yet, In the settings >Other Settings, Turn the Trim on, a small "L" shaped graph comes up on bottom right of screen, It allows the trim buttons to increase and decrease in up and side ways intensity , I believe for forward(horizontal) cruise control . I'll give it a shot after work today and confirm. Just never like to do "new" tricks on my first couple flights after a update, till I gain her trust again!:rolleyes:
