    Awesome! Glad to see that DJI at least acknowledges the issue.

    Yet.... That actually does not explain fly-aways that have happened....

    Just for info , I did everything that this video suggests. The only thing I didn't do was update the firmware. I had a pretty nasty flyaway and crash yesterday.

    I had a flyaway on my second flight ... after updating firmware.

    It only lasted until it hit a tall tree ... fortunately my P2V seems to be intact after being retrieved via a cherry picker.

    I suspect frequency interference. Definitely considering getting a Futaba now ... I figure a stronger signal might prevent disaster.

    You can't use a Futuba on Phantom Vision. Futuba work just on 2.4 GHz same with Vision camera and will interfere.

    I don't bought a Vision untill now just for this reason. I want to use a Futuba on my copter. And can't find any RC on 5.8 Ghz because 5.8 GHz is the worst band for a RC.

    P.S. I just found that Phantom 2 is on preorder and must important ... use 2.4 GHz on RC so I can add a Futuba. On box version will have 1.000 m range.
