    Hi guys,
    Not sure if posting in the right section.
    Is there anyone using Firmware V01.07. What are your thoughts on it and does it address losing GPS signal from time to time on Android devices. Do you think it's safe to fly?
    I would love to hear your opinions on it. :)

    Been using it for about a month, no problems, never had the GPS issue before (I am using it on IOS)

    I've got 1.7 on Android. Lost GPS only once near a telephone company building. Other than that I've never had issues losing GPS. I've not encountered any issues on 1.7.

    I really want to test out the geo fencing system and everything but happen to live in a yellow marked area. May be a lot of hassle to get myself flying.
    Would love to hear some more opinions. I'm open to testing it out.

    From what I understand you can (after you register with a CC for verification) in the app unlock the yellow zone to fly for up to three days. I don't live in a yellow or red zone, so haven't had to use it. Though I took it to a red zone once and the motors would not start; which I expected.
