    Hi guys!!!

    I have a couple of random questions -

    1) Am I correct in believing that while in Vision mode, the S2 switch is not used at all, and only comes into play when in NAZA mode?

    2) In one of Collin's videos he warns of the dangers of being too close to cell towers. Does anyone know how close is too close? Should I assume that if I can see the tower, I am too close?

    1) Yep!

    2) I wouldn't worry about it at all if it's more than 1000ft away. But as with high tension electricity cables I wouldn't want to be closer than about 500ft just in case. Those figures are just my comfort zone, by the way, and have no grounding in evidence whatsoever! :D

    1) Toggling S2 Down, Up about 5 times, in the latest P2V firmware,
    sets a new Home location, right?

    You're right! I forgot that one as I run mine in NAZA mode and have done since before the latest update.

    So that Switch 2 (toggle x5) is only for Vision Mode?

    It should do it in both. Well to be more precise with IOC in the NAZA-M-V2 you can reset "forward" orientation for course lock by toggling off>CL>off and you can reset "home" for home lock purposes by toggling CL>HL>CL I haven't tried these on the Vision in NAZA mode but as it's part of the IOC algorithm I would expect it to be present in the Vision implementation of NAZA.
