    Hello everyone,
    Today is my 3rd flight after the new update.
    Went through before flight check list everything is good. Calibrated the compass and ready to go.

    Then took off. As soon as i took off it started drifting at 1m of the ground. Couldn't land it safely was afraid to damage the camera. I thought better to ascend for few meters then land safely. Start Ascending the drone flew-away but still control it. Decided to go up few meters to be safe. Got to 30 meters then the drone flew-away completely cant control anything. Then i initiate return home as a final option. The drone responded and came back. Was so happy to see my bird again. Landed safely.
    Turned off VPS, then took off again. Almost Everything was smooth. Except that the range decreased from last time i flew over the field for the same distances.

    Now Can i get 200$ refund for the faulty VPS !!

    Anything else I should be aware of after the new update?
