    Really looking forward to the next update.. With my horizon that keeps tilting in its own when I yaw to app disconnects and lost signal.. Not to exclude the other issues members are having.. I really want it to be the perfect flying machine as it should.

    C'mon Dji.. It's been a month!

    Sorry to be a pessimist, but I wonder what new flaws we will experience in the next firmware update?

    Here's a few potentials...
    1. No GPS lock.
    2. Max altitude = 200 ft.
    3. Engines won't start at night.
    4. Battery error requiring new battery every 20th flight.
    5. All tablets made prior to July 2015 no longer compatible.
    6. Downgrade to 240p video.
    7. Black & White photos only (but still 12 megapixel!)
    8. Flies forward only; reverse and sideways disabled.
    9. Plastic props no longer compatible; must upgrade to carbon fiber.
    10. DJI customer service no longer offered. (Oh...wait...I think that's already the case!)

    Just kidding!!! I love my P3A!!! I believe DJI will get the flaws worked out for all of us somewhere down the road. Maybe firmware 12.8.1.

    Too late on #10...and expect that next firmware update the day AFTER your warranty expires.

    Looking at past firmware releases from DJI tells me that you don't want to be first in line. :)
