    Please only reply if you have had a flyaway or a crash that was (in your opinion) caused by the Vision and not pilot error. To better understand how/why this issue is happening we need to know the following:

    1. Where were you flying (environment)
    2. Weather conditions
    3. Firmware version you had
    4. Which vision did you have (USB plug on TX or without)
    5. Who did you buy it from
    6. Link to your posting or description of what happened

    There is a thought as to the problem but we need more information to confirm.

    I was thinking... I wonder if the serial numbers on the P2Vs are sequential. Did they have a bad run? Maybe a database of serial numbers from the problematic Visions would show a pattern...

    Presumably, everyone that has had a flyaway that would like dji to fix issues in the autopilot....

    Maybe it's only the vision owners who have a Tx without the USB that may have a problem

    O that would be all of us then !!!!!!

    This is a good post. I have a feeling the fly always were solved with the updated firmware though.

    Every fly away incident I have read about has been with the older firmware. I also followed another post on here a while back discussing the fact that one of the updates on the firmware related to the fly away issue... Whether or not that was true I don't know.
