    Just upgraded the firmware to version 1.3.20 on my Phantom 3 Advanced.
    Also did upgrade the RC and extra batteries.
    Logfiles reportet success on all.

    After upgrade I did a IMU-calibration, gimball-calibration and RC-calibration.

    Did a normal preflight rutine, put the Galaxy 6 in Flightmode, check batteries, calibrate compass, checked RTH hight and so on..

    As I was getting ready to take off, I got "disconnected" in the Pilot app (v1.2.0 - Android)

    Restarted the app, and everything appeared to be ok.

    Auto-takeoff, hoovered nicly, no drifting. Never had any problems with v1.2.8 either.

    Did a short test-flight around the cabin, elevation aboat 40 meters, range about 60-70 meters.

    Started to approach home, and when the bird was 15-20 meters away, I got "Diconected" again !!

    After another app restart, it appeard to be working.

    Landed the bird safely.


    Any issues with v1.3.20 and the Pilot App ?

    When i first installed the Pilot App, i noticed there where a lot of menues/settings that where changed/removed after i connected the RC and P3A.
    I assume that the Pilot app is genecic, and will recive config from the RC and Phantom.

    Should I removed and reinstall the app after FW-upgrade ?
