    Really had a hard time getting full GPS lock today. Same area I usually fly in.
    Can there be days when it's not as good as others ?
    I noticed the other day where my height in the app was way off now today it was fine.
    Flying in naza m.
    I just have a feeling this 3.0 firmware is buggy. I noticed with my old 450 different firemwares acted better than others.
    Other thing is it's a pain in the *** without the channel 7 lever. Today it was real windy and I hated taking my finger off the stick to move the camera. Whoever dream this up is a idiot.

    Today is showing as "high intensity class-x" solar flare day, if that makes a difference.

    In addition, weather can affect GPS accuracy - cloud cover and moisture in the air.
