    Has anyone else encountered GPS loss after updating to the new firmware?

    I have had 30 successful flights on older firmware versions until yesterday. I updated the firmware to 1.4 and not 2 mins in did I lose all satellites. The satellite icon went grey, showed no number of satellites and for some reason went to P-OPTI? My flight record shows weak GPS signal on playback as does my healthy drones satellite count dropping to "dangerous" levels in purple of six or less. All previous flights on older firmware uploaded to healthy drones showed 15+ satellites in green consistently flight after flight, but now this 2 mins into the flight 150 ft in the air with no obstructions to a clear and open sky?

    Anyone have any ideas? I think it's got to be firmware related as it's just way too coincidental.

    I have reverted back to 1.3.2 in the attempt to see if problem re occurs with the old firmware ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots1442320740.395982.jpg ImageUploadedByPhantomPilots1442320751.221417.jpg
