    Gee, there was something new in Phantom 3 Pro/Adv firmware being updated & posted on the @dji website earlier today, but then they took it down.

    Yeah, but from what @dji-Patrick said tonight:
    "The new firmware is going to be released in a few hours . Everything is fine ! [​IMG]"

    I'm ready when ever you guys are!! ;-)

    I wonder what's new? Any wild guesses?

    The first three don't count, hahaha.

    Countdown starting in minus Ten, nine, eight, seven. . .

    Yes, Things are great now. Wonder what's in store for us next?
    I hope this firmware will bring us some interesting new features or camera controls and pray if fixes glitches anyone may have, who's still afflicted.

    This FW doesnt have much of anything "new". The next app version will have some goodies though! Drifting and live feed issues were the main targets

    Sounds like you need to calibrate the compass on your display device

    I'm glad there are brave folks like Streve and RedHot that are eager to test new firmware. My bird flies so good it's going to take a lot before I'll want to change anything. She's rock solid.

    There is no way to calibrate compass for iPads. Once I had installed a 3rd party compass app and that initiated compass calibration. I'm not seeing it again. But this app shows correct North when I compare it with other phone.

    Did you give your feedback to DJI ? What's the process of beta testing with DJI ?

    I cant go in to whats reported or talked about. But each FW is tested by people around the world in every imaginable situation.

    Lol. I'm guessing that there are only about 5 or 10 folks on this entire sight would recognize and know what that number is. Brings back nice memories from old Sunday evenings with my pops.

    I know this but unfortunately Compass App is no more provided with iPad. I presume iPad takes care of self calibration on its own or will switch in calibration app automatically when needed.

    Have you tried opening maps? That often asks for a calibration.
