    Down loaded new firm ware on GO app and it now tells me I have prop guards mounted??? I don't, what's the deal with sorting this out?

    I had that message too. Have no idea what it means or why it's appearing, but I think this company has more serious QA and software issues to sort out at this point.

    The product certainly wasn't ready for Prime Time ...

    If I'm launching in my yard and facing a fence a few feet away, I get that message. Try facing open space.

    As far as I'm aware, if you fit prop guards then the Collision avoidance disengages automatically so it would be advised to ensure that you sort it if you do not have the guards installed as you will not have any collision avoidance working.

    isn't that because it detects your fence as an obstacle?

    do you have this issue only within close proximity to an object, does the same happen launching in an open field? ive seen this if there's something close to the craft when starting

    I presume so. It doesn't like obstacles on takeoff.
