  1. The update took quite a few tries to start downloading. We had to reboot everything a few times. After it finally started, it completed without issue. Took about 15 minutes.

    Quickly glanced at the menus and only saw one new option in the video settings menu. We have not test flown or checked image quality. Hoping they resolved their focusing issues on both auto and manual. We do run into issues with it every now and then. I did not see a lens calibration option, which is a concern.

    Will keep you posted if we notice anything crazy.

  2. I just did the update today on my p4p plus v2.0
    Now it will not hold its altitude. It will also hold at an altitude when I try to bring it down. When this begins the gimbal starts going up and down as well. Hope there is a quick fix.
