    Hey guys I have read a lot about old firmware being used for long range flights due to speed etc it would be nice if people who have had long range flights share which is the safest and best firmware to use if one requires long ranges and will it be an issue if using it with the latest app on iOS meaning bird is on old firmware and app is the newest...!

    Great advice but I am really looking into long range flights cause I have spent lots of money on my mods and now I want to see how far I can take this baby to. Descent is obviously a major matter cause battery is restricted to a certain time limit cause in newest version auto land bla bla are going to make it a problem do u think I have to go to Naza mode for long range or it doesn't have anything tondo with long range

    how far I can take this baby? - why? I've never had any desire to go very high or very far - I can't fathom a reason?

    The new waypoint app takes your transmitter/antenna out of the equation...just set your waypoint out 3 miles and back and forget it...very trackable signature on the flytrex charts as no human could fly such straight lines....

    waypoints are another game you can't compare it with the feel of flying and breaking records .
