    I got a DJI Go update for my iPad on Sept 18th. v 2.9.2

    I see in the menu, below "Turn off Forward Obstacle Sensing" they've added another option..

    There's a switch that allows you to turn Vision Positioning on and off... There is no documentation for this option. I don't know if it works.. I haven't tried it yet.

    That's nice. I'm wondering if the 32ch hack still works.

    Would it be good to turn off if flying over water? What are some other reasons to turn it off?

    When flying within 10 meters of the ground, you could turn it off in the following situations:

    I tried it this afternoon on top of water but it seems like it was more unstable when it was turned off.
