    Thanks for the info... but I wonder what the update really does.

    Last time I jumped in, I updated my zenmuse to 1.0.0.6 before I found out it ruined 7th channel position mode and changed it to "progressive". Not going to be an early adopter this time.

    I don't have a gimbal error, a battery problem, or a compass problem. I wonder if this will brick limefuel batteries.

    Anyone know if this fixes the slow leveling response of the gimbal that happened after the 1.0.0.6 update?

    It seems there's always a hidden agenda with these types of updates. I have no issues with "communication between the battery and the compass." I'm good, thanks DJI.

    I plugged in today, updated all of my versioning and went out to fly to find that my copter will not spin up the props. I checked and I am updated to the new Phantom 2 Vision+ Central Board update. But now in updates it does not reflect what my loader or update information is for GPS. Is anyone else seeing this? I have already reset and reinstalled all of the modules that show up and it responds to the controller with the correct flight ready light sequences.

    ****DISREGARD....this issue was due to the controller not being calibrated correctly. I ran the update in the controller again, re-calibrated the controller and set the other settings, gain etc to default.
