    I just saw it too on my Go app.
    Can we ignore it and still fly, or will it force itself upon us?
    Also, I don't see where it says what the FW is for. How do we find that out?
    Any way to find out what changes they've made?

    I haven't updated Firmware yet because I didn't see a prompt when I flew last night. The app did however did auto-update on me and has changed a bit. The icon on the home screen for RTH in now ONLY RTH. If you want to set the transmitter to be your home point, you need to go further into the settings. Also, it looked like you have to re-enable maximum distance. Only other thing I've noticed so far is that under MC Settings, multiple flight modes now include P-mode, Atti, and Sport but I have a standard. The diagram appears to show that you change modes from a switch on the top left of the controller (which I don't have) so i don't know why it would allow me to activate it?

    The only one I read was improved compass accuracy but I think there were 5 things listed.

    Can you use it without firmware update?
    I`ll probably stick with my old firmware for a while, until someone test it.

    have any of the people who were having Loss of transmission short range issues after the last update...(like myself) download and installed the update and had approval? I am scared to do the new update since I dont want it to get even worse.

    There is nothing in the notes about improved transmitter however DJI never even admitted that there was a problem to begin with.

    Before doing the firmware upgrade, I updated my Go app to v2.7.0, and upon completion of updating the app, the FW notification went away. Any way to do it manually?

    When you're in F mode you should see a little icon show up on the left side of the screen. Select it and you can choose the different modes.

    Nabzo, Try going to the home screen on the Go app. That's where mine said Update.

    I started having no signal problems this last week. Did the update today and haven't had the problem. Hopefully this update fixed it.
