    A new firmware v3.06 has been released for Phantom 2 series. Please kindly be informed. Here are the main updates:

    Overview:
    a) Main controller firmware updated to v3.06.
    b) Central board firmware updated to v1.0.1.32
    c) DJI Vision App updated to iOS v1.0.42 and Android v1.0.52.
    d) Phantom 2 PC Assistant updated to v3.2.

    Main controller Major New Features:
    a) Added two levels of battery warnings: Low Battery Level Warning and Critical Battery Level Warning. Setup these warnings using either the DJI Phantom Assistant or DJI Vision App.

    For Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+ users:
    When flying the DJI Phantom 2 Vision or Vision+, the system will automatically track your current flight height and distance. It will also calculate the amount of battery power required to return home safely. Watch the battery indicator bar at the top of the screen. When the battery power falls below the Low Battery Level Warning threshold (yellow area), a notice will popup. It is recommended that you choose “Go Home” to return the aircraft to the home point safely. If you choose “Cancel”, the aircraft will continue flying until the Critical Battery Level Warning is triggered. If no choice is made, the aircraft will return home automatically after ten seconds. The motors will power off automatically once the Phantom lands.

    If the Low Battery Level Warning (yellow area) is canceled, the Phantom will continue normal flight. If the battery power falls below the Critical Battery Level Warning threshold (red area), the Phantom will automatically start to descend. While descending, you may push up on the throttle to slow the descent and navigate the aircraft to a more suitable landing area. The motors will power off automatically once the Phantom lands.

    For Phantom 2 users, this function is enabled by default, so Auto Go-home will be activated if the battery level reaches a Low Battery Level Warning. When returning, you may get control back using the remote controller and continue normal flight. If the battery power falls below the Critical Battery Level Warning threshold (red area), the Phantom will automatically start to descend. While descending, you may push up on the throttle to slow the descent and navigate the aircraft to a more suitable landing area. The motors will power off automatically once the Phantom lands.

    b) When the battery level reaches a Critical Battery Level Warning, the aircraft will automatically land. The motors will power off after landing.
    c) Descending speed will be automatically adjusted based on current altitude when the battery level reaches a Critical Battery Level Warning.
    d) Minimum adjustable height limit set to 20m.
    e) Magnetic declination value stored to improve flight course accuracy.
    f) New fix of video signal problem that affect some Phantom 2 Vision users.
    g) Various bug fixes.

    DJI Vision App Major New Features:
    a) The current battery level can now be viewed real-time through the DJI Vision App, via a battery level indicator bar near the top of the screen.
    b) “Hotline” feature for easy access to post-sales supports.
    c) “Compass Calibration” feature added.
    d) “Low Battery Auto Go Home” feature added.

    Phantom 2 PC Assistant Major New Features:
    a) Added Japanese as a supported language.

    Notes*:
    1. To upgrade main controller firmware to v3.06 or above is required.
    2. For Phantom 2 users, be aware that aircraft will now automatically return to the Home point on Low Battery Level Warning. If you wish to disable the auto go-home feature, launch DJI Phantom Assistant, enter “Battery Settings” section and de-select the “Go-Home” option.

    i doubt they lifted restrictions BUT....

    3. Descending speed will be automatically adjusted based on current altitude when the battery level reaches a
    Critical Battery Level Warning.


    Not sure if this is for the vision auto rth on battery level or not but seems interesting none the less

    Well, she flies straight as an arrow in GPS mode for me :D Still prefer ATTI, but that's just my preference. I like the increase in speed and mobility. Interested to see what others find.

    anyone know if you can pre-set a height altitude when its RTH at low battery level or raise the altitude during RTH? just to avoid them tall trees and buildings :)

    also i have mine set to 25% for low level warning and 15% at critical. are those settings ok? is 25% enough juice for the phantom to return home w/ an FPV and no iOSD?
