    With the new Android app that was just released, I decided to see if DJI was nice enough to fix the 640X480 30fps video that never used to work on my GS4. Sure enough, it worked perfectly. I successfully flew 2,000 feet at the highest setting, but then I had to turn back due to a storm coming in. Hopefully it will work for those of you who also were unable to fly at the highest setting before this update.

    For Android users, I would recommend doing the update, and without actually taking off or flying out of LOS, test out the highest settings. If you get a black screen on all settings, uninstall the app (maybe first try rebooting your phone and trying again), and then re-install 1.0.40 by downloading it off of the following link: http://droneslinger.com/software.html

    yes it totally messed up my video feed..it was me...that dude...lol....I have an HTC One, so I dont know maybe this software doesnt like it...i will try it with my nexus tab. Unless something is wrong with my camera. I've been shooting with it for a few months now and not too many problems except the black screen once in a while. Curious if anyone else has problems if nothing else back up app with titanium backup before proceeding if you can. so at least you can do a restore. Thank you matt your a lifesaver. I just wonder are IPhone users experiencing such problems with their FPV using the DJI. Something tells me i may go back to that, someday if this continues.

    I have an Android LG G2 and can confirm that before the update, I wasn't able to do 640x480@30fps.. (only 15fps) and tonight I just flew 2 batteries and it was flawless.. I also did my first sets of waypoint flying and everything worked awesome!

    Samsung Note 3 with the updated app and my 640x480 @ 30FPS works great. Finally.
