    I think it will be fine... people whined about it but I stand behind the title. There are people here who are in the "red zone" who have literally said they can't safely fly with this problem. So far it has been up for over 24 hours so I think we are in the clear. Thanks for adding your support over there.

    I just create a FB account to check in over there. (I hate FB :| )

    Anyway, looks like we are making some noise on the DJI page. Keep supporting!

    I got on FB and told them we would not be ignored, but I think they're still ignoring me. :oops:

    Like riding a bike, right? Gotta keep pedaling.

    Funny as hell, and I bet it has the added bonus of really pissing them off. :)

    IMPORTANT UPDATE

    Project Drunken Sparrow is going into a holding pattern. DJI may have a solution for us. Please hold off on posting to social media for the time being.

    That's weird. I wonder why they are unable to safely fly in ATTI mode?

    It looks like onfourblades will be the first to get to it. I am in Chicago and flying back to Los Angeles tonight so won't get to it tomorrow. And I've got to squeeze that in before I head to the Pismo dunes for the weekend with the Phantom.

    Follow along with your F5 key in the main thread: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=10317&start=700

    UPDATE: It's looking good. If it turns out they fixed the problem, Project Drunken Sparrow will change it's tone completely and heap praise onto DJI for listening and responding to its customers.

    I have to say as a recent convert into this revolutionary group, and just having built up a good blood lust...this really sucks...I'm a rebel without a cause. :(

    I guess I could join the Mac guys...
