    You've gotta love the way they don't include anything in the release notes. It still shows RC Assistant V1.1 :roll:

    2.4G Transmitter firmware:
    V1.0.1.24
    What is new?
    Only for the new remote control:
    indicateor led will blink when PPM line is connect
    Applicaiton:
    Phantom 2 Vision/Vision+/Phantom


    DJI Spellcheck not working very well either, very poor quality control from the Chinese company, again.

    Update - Did the power on light used to be RED? It's GREEN now.

    PWM and PPM are two common words used in the R/C industry. PWM stands for Pulse Width Modulation and PPM stands for Pulse Position Modulation.

    PPM is newer and way faster the PWM.

    I downloaded the Windows version using Bootcamp on my Mac. No real changes that I can see. Transmitter firmware remains unchanged. This is just the RC Assistant.

    i'm hoping they've done something sensible like the led turning red when the batteries are getting low

    What is the difference in Vision + assistant software & RC Assistant? Is one for the bird & other for Transmitter?

    The RC Assistant is only used to set the mode of remote controller and calibrate it. The Vision Assistant is mostly for the bird, but there are some remote controller settings there too.

    Mac users have lower tolerance for application that crashes or buggy?
