    Hi thought I would just post this as I see quite a lot of scary posts about new updates, I am a new user and have just updated the firmware with the new update that does something to the battery in cold weather, took my p3S out this morning to catch the sunrise in pretty chilly conditions , think 3deg with a bit of wind chill , my hands were ice cold , and guess what ? She was as steady as a rock , not a single fault , just wish I could remember to set the camera recording ! Did some POI and focus lock and all seemed brill to me can see me using that quite a lot.

    I went out for a bit too, here in Michigan. Sunny, cool but windy day on the new firmware; no problems at all.

    DJI should add a selectable option to the app to auto-start recording at motor start & auto-stop when the motors shut down.

    No. Why? There are far more people that would consider it a pain to have to shut off when they turn there drone on.

    Ill admit this the record feature got the best of me the other day. I forgot to hit record and was trying to plot my route with the waypoint feature. Sigh.

    My problem, I take off with video, stop video for a still or two. Then forget to start video again.

    I guess this is the remote?
    What is the light pattern?
    Any messages on the mobile app?
    Any lights blinking on the bird?

    I ended up having to delete the DJI Go app, re-install app. The app indicated the firmware was successful. But the file on give SD card said different. So I turned bird on and listened to the continuos beeps for 17 mins while I re-installed the firmware. At 87% installed the horrid beeping finally stopped and the bird lit up. It was beautiful. Lol.. I took it for a night flight and no probs.. I was pretty nervous there for a second. I found one YouTube video that addressed this issue. They wanted me to do something way different.. Thanks
