    Overview:
    1. All-in-One Firmware Updated to:v1.2.0040

    Bug Fixes:
    1. Reduced purple fringing for RAW photos taken in HDR mode.

    If the remote controllers firmware is being updated. then perhaps this is DJI's way of sneaking in a fix for the 5.8ghz signal strength issue.

    Turn on your Remote Control, turn on the Phantom, connect to Phantom through wifi settings on your iPhone, iPad, or wherever you have the DJI App. Open DJI App. On one of the screens on the DJI App, I think the home screen, there is an upgrade banner across the top of the app. Then follow the directions.

    I just did the new firmware update. Why can't I change the maximum flight altitude to 500m?

    That would suck if they just capped it at 120m. Just looked at the specs on line and it now says 120m is the max altitude. Don't remember if it said that or 500m before.

    It looks like DJI is complying with the FAA ruling.

    Can anyone confirm this? Maybe the update changed the settings to factory settings?
