    Hi all recently updated my dads p2v when we tried it out it lost all satellite links in flight.We nearly lost it and it was a struggle to bring it back and land as it was also a bit windy.We then reconnected it to the PC and then i noticed it said important you need to relink tx to phantom power cycle and recalibrate.After we did this it was flying ok :D
    Anyone else had this happen ?

    Hello,
    I've had perimeters change after update, for no
    Apparent reason? So it seems you should follow these
    guidelines after ANY UPDATE!

    1) hook Tx to ( RC ASSISTANT ) update FIRMWARE
    2) CALIBRATE Tx while still in ( RC ASSISTANT )
    3) hook phantom to ( PC ASSISTANT ) update firmware
    4) while still hooked up run Tx calibration ( to calibrate Tx to phantom )
    5) power cycle phantom ( while still in assistant )
    6) double check EVERYTHING, Tx cal, IMU status, parameters, ect!
    ( make sure all setting have not mysteriously changed
    7) compass calibration before first flight!

    Should be good!

    Take care, fly safe!
