    You have to revert back to an earlier version of the firmware, pre V3.xx I believe.


    www.droneslinger.com has them on-line.

    Not sure about that.

    It is a 'programmed limit' based on barometric pressure change rate regardless of amount [full] of stick input.

    :lol: yep, that will defiantly increase descent rate!
    I think 1.08 is much safer, however. Watch out for VRS which can also increase descent rate! :eek:
