    Who has tested it?
    Aside from what the message says, has anything else change? Channel hack ok?

    I saw this update as well, am not planning on doing it at the moment.

    Given the recent rumors of distance limitations and serial numbers, I'm going to stick with the previous software until the new one is thoroughly analyzed.

    OH come on in, the water is fine. No sharks, yet. Snickers

    I like the new Go app, a breeze updating the radio controller firmware, right from the app.. Yeah.

    I hear the new update allows the FAA to triangulate your exact RC location in real time. Better be careful.

    This can be done without new firmware.

    Dronedetector.com has a demo video

    I flew a bit today with the new controller firmware without any problems. I didn't notice any major changes, but...
    the channel hack no longer worked and the .DFI.configs file seems to have been deleted from my Nexus 7 tablet.
