    Hi again,
    I am back ;)
    Waited for a good autumn deal on a P2V+ and suddenly there was one.
    (decided that the cash investment in the proper legal paperworks that is for one specific piece of machine was worth another "investment", I hope I will get some better airtime to invested money out of this one)

    I hope you can help me with these questions.

    1) Is "Phantom RC Assistant Software v1.1 - 2014-02-20" not to be used any more especially with the new controllers?
    I read here of misbehaviour after update, first P2V+ I did recalibrate in that software and a second time in the "Assistant software".

    2) The battery update says that older batteries should not be updated, is that now blocked from happen in "Assistant v3.6" or can it be done by mistake?
    "The new battery firmware v2.6.0.0 does not support battery with loader of v1.3.0.0 or firmware of v1.6.0.0."

    4) I ordered the new transmitter, have any one a opinion/experience if the tilt is smooth or if it's a transition of the "jerky" app implementation? (yes I will find out in due time, but curious ;) )

    5) Do you think it's "wise" to update to 3.08 right now or wait for some fixes to current version?

    6) I seen some go straight to Assistant v3.6 or is it better to go 3.2, 3.4 and then 3.6?

    7) Just turning on the battery, is that at all "usable" for a discharge even that it will take a loooong time?

    8) These new 9" 9450 Self-tightening Propellers (Thrust Boosted), what can you "expect" on a standard P2V+, any noticeable improvement at all or?

    9) Zen IMU v1.0.0.4 to v1.0.0.6 should you wait with this one until you actually have the new controller or will it work with the old one?

    Thanks in advance for answers!

    Edit in,
    Maybe "loader" is a aspect of the battery and not a charger?


    Edit in 2,
    Did now see that loader is regarding to the physical battery :oops: so forget about question no 3.
    3) How do I see what charger version I do have? I cant see any version number on either one that I now have?
    "The new battery firmware v2.6.0.0 does not support battery with loader of v1.3.0.0 or firmware of v1.6.0.0."
    Added 8 and 9 instead ;)


    Edit in 3,
    Don't miss this one, (humorous)

    Re: Hi again, some "semi newbie" questions,

    @Nexus,
    Did see your comment.

    -----------------------

    OBS!!!!!
    Read this thread first before do update or anything,
    viewtopic.php?f=27&t=28427&start=140
    This video below is with update v3.6 but NOT the Zen IMU from 1.0.0.6 to 1.0.0.5, so mine in this video is 1.0.0.5.

    Answer to some of my questions above, might perhaps help somebody.
    (got the controller very fast, the "spring" stuff is just my idea of how to tackle the hard tension, maybe another way also exists?)

    When you have the new controller connected to Vision Assistant v3.6 you get some new gimbal options as well.



    To the prop question (no 8) I found that this was pretty informative IMO,

    Where does the 'compliance' box show up? I can't find it (MAC) on my 3.6 version

    Sorry I do not have the Mac software, but what do you mean with the " 'compliance' box"?
