    Hopefully it will fix some of the problems from 1.5, mainly vibration for me. Depends if we can still downgrade or not too.

    Oh wow, so no mention of all the problems being fixed, and only downgrade to 1.5, that's disappointing.

    I have, that's why I said no mention of any problems being fixed :) just a battery update, they need to fix the stability and vibration problems!

    I can't believe it went up from 1.5 to 1.6 only for battery problems. There sure must be a hidden agenda (eg less power, less altitude, less distance, more or stricter no fly zones etc.)

    I've noticed previously that if you click on Downloads in the Professional & Advanced support page, it brings you to a page titled PHANTOM 3 PROFESSIONAL DOWNLOADS, with no mention of Advanced.
    Clicking Downloads here:

    Brings you to this page:

    Also odd that the release notes say the iOS app updated to v2.4.2 when the downloads page offers 2.4.3.

    Seems to me they may be addressing the recent issues with sudden power loss, etc. that people have been experiencing. Hope this update solves that issue.

    Decrease in vertical and horizontal speed? Say what?:( I like being able to fly at 30 to 34 mph. 5 mph can make a big difference if you fly long range and get caught in some air currents. When somebody has tested the new firmware, please confirm the new speed.:cool:

    DJI is usually silent on bug fixes as afraid of filing claims due to bugs.

    Anyway, I will download the latest FW and update my P3. I can't fly today it's raining in San Francisco. Don't mind to be a Guinea Pig.

    Seems plausible, it sounds as though they think the motors called on too much power at full speed in some circumstances.

    HUmm that could be plausible being the only two times I ever had erroneous power issues and warnings pop up then it trying to auto land with a perfectly good battery and still at over 90% just so happened to be when I was hammering it full speed ahead while also ascending.
