    Just out of interest. What sort of flying time are people getting from their visions? The reason I ask is that prior to the upgrade of the firmware/battery issue I was getting approx 25 minutes and today I have done two flights one of 20mins and the other 18 minutes. Both times recorded off the video which I set running on takeoff. Just basic stuff not going mad.
    Though it was cold / very cold so that is a possibility for the decrease I suppose?

    At what point are you stopping? A certain %?

    I've experienced the same... the lesser flight times that I've had have been in much colder weather (understandably so) - I wouldn't worry about it.

    I am totally new to this site but I would like some help about range. I have the Phantom 1 and took some
    great stuff and now I also have the vision BUT I can only go up 100 + feet and Out of Range/Go Home.
    I have upgraded firmware turned the back screw to FCC etc. But now I'm scared to fly this thing. Yes
    I have total control fly's great when in it's range but then no go. It does fly home thank god. Wide open space
    with nothing around but 100 feet that's it. The Wifi works great it's controlling the Vision with the
    controller.

    Thanx to anyone who can help.
    Jay
