  1. Maybe they fixed the rear sensor which did not work at all for me. Backed right up into a tree in broad daylight. I was not even flying fast. Been without the drone since 12/31/21.

    • My phone just updated this past weekend, now I wasn’t able to use it for work on Monday. I had to borrow a used iPhone a just to download the app on it so I could fly again. Anyone know when when they will be fixing this issue with Android users?
