This came today from Litchi on mail.

Dear Litchi Pilots,


There is currently an issue with the recently released firmwares for Mavic Pro (v01.03.0500), Inspire 2 (v01.0.0240) and Phantom 4 Pro (v01.03.0418) where the drone will fly erratically in some of Litchi’s flight modes. If you already installed one of these firmwares, we highly recommend not using these flight modes until the issue is fixed with a DJI firmware update. The following flight modes are affected: VR with Immersive/Joystick Head Tracking active, Follow, Focus and Track. All other flight modes (including FPV, Waypoint, Orbit and VR with Immersive/Joystick Head Tracking OFF) are unaffected.

Dear Litchi Pilots,

Same issue reported for Autopilot. I'd imagine the DJI Tactical Assault Team are abseiling down from helicopters (drones?) to address this as I type... hopefully.

After updating the firmware in the P4P and the Remote, aligning the IMU, Compass and running Gimbal calibration the Mechanical Shutter twitching the gimbal still exists.

Gimbal Twitch when taking photographs with mechanical shutter enabled still exists. Basically the horizon tilts a random amount every time the mechanical shutter is engaged. You won't notice this if shooting pictures while video capture is active as this defeats the mechanical shutter. The only way to see this problem is to be in "Camera Mode" and have "Mechanical Shutter ON" and take some pictures, at the moment of the picture being taken, the mechanical shutter can be seen closing (testing in the kitchen) and the gimbal rolls the horizon, sometimes a small amount sometimes a large amount. Some people say, "Meh, don't be so picky", while a person taking 'photograph stills' says, "The mechanical shutter is an advanced feature that we paid for, it needs to function correctly without disturbing the integrity of my photographs".

I don't think anything was fixed, because most the problems are due to low quality physical components. Can't fix a bad gimbal with software updates. We'll see what happens with the Phantom 5.

Hi. Not sure I agree totally with that comment, as I believe that the issue I have with the gimbal is that it isn't always sensing movement away from horizon to right the camera in all instances. It eventually rights itself, and that's why I'm hoping that it just requires sensitivity to yaw improved. But let's see what comes along in the near future...

There are several issues concerning the gimbal, and the horizon drifting has been present more or less in pretty much every model. If it were fixable by a firmware update, it should've been done by now.

Like most others, Why not GSP for the plus.   I use Litchi with my Mavic and love it. Why can't we have the option for that also. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

I haven't even got in the air yet and I am fairly pleased with the changes so far. Locking ISO at 500 in DLOG is interesting though I am keen to here DJI's thought on this change..

Looks like DJI is rating the camera at 500 ISO.  This is normal and expected for a log file.

I took my 4Pro out in the 30+ mph sustained winds were having today in Michigan.  I kept it relatively low and out of the highest gusts (40-60 mph) as I was trying to build experience in less than desirable operating conditions.   It was interesting to see how well the 4Pro was mostly able to maintain position and perform basic flying maneuvers without incident in P mode.

No wind warnings.  That being said, I haven't seen them before on my bird.

Are they going to provide the Phantom 5 free of charge as a compensation for the problematic Phantom 4 Pro?
If not, what's the point? To pay another pack of money to buy another pack of problems?

hey Fans031ab422,i found out the workaround how you will find the right file version for the controller. go on the page with the URL you already used. Than to the top of the page change the language into some chinese first (i don´t really know this step is really necessary) but than change it into english and let the page in englisch. go down again to the download section and like a mirracle the right file is there to download

Nobody is forcing you to buy DJI's products. They make great drones, but there are also some persistent issues and no means to fix them.

On the subject of the firmware upgrade for my P4P (not +), I did note that the craft update took longer than previous updates, and there were additional camera movements which were different too. For example, twice the camera twitched to the left then after about 30 sec it twitched to the right. At one stage the camera went straight up diagonally, thumped against the top of the gimbal bracket, and after about 5 secs eventually dropped back to normal position. This to me suggests that more is being done in the update to attempt to set the gimbal correctly.

Everything after update (including for the RC) appears OK, although I did note when it was sitting in front of me while I was adjusting GO settings (all were reset to default with 4.0.5) that the camera was slooowly drifting degrees to the left then slooowly drifting back again - sort of like having a 'lazy eye'... ;-)  I'm hoping this doesn't persist when it's in flight.

Also it was clear that AFC was working (camera was really facinated with my knee for some reason), and yes D-LOG is indeed stuck to 500 (so I'll run with CINE for now).

The overall number one concern DJI owners have had for multiple product iterations has been the horizon issue:
DJI repeats the same "IMU and gimbal" calibration which is so frustrating because that does nothing. Then they say to send the drone in for repair. That also doesn't fix the problem. It is so irritating for DJI to basically repeat things that don't address the issue. That is why users get irritated with DJI- they feel like they are being ignored.
DJI also appears to have a habit of denying the issue. They show footage where the craft either isn't high enough to see a horizon, or is already in an environment which doesn't have a level horizon to begin with. That's why this is most obvious when flying over water.

You nailed it 100%. I could care less about advanced sensors, obstacle avoidance, flight modes etc. I just want the 'Horizon Tilt' issue addressed and permanently rectified once and for all. Even if it means switching the old gimbal with a more advanced one, I am willing to pay $$ out of my own pocket for that advanced gimbal without 'Horizon Tilt' problem. There is absolutely no point of releasing their next 'Phantom 5' in the market if it still has the same problem.......seriously.

My sole purpose for the Phantom is aerial photography. I just don't fly for fun. Their research and development team need to halt any further Phantom productions until they fix this extremely ANNOYING PROBLEM.

i don't find the issue a big deal for stills, just straighten in post same as hand held camera use. Video however is very annoying.  

I wonder if DJI have tried a software based horizon reference. If the active track features can follow a person or vehicle, the smarts to identify the horizon and keep it level should be achievable I would have thought.

I received my P4P+ just a week ago and due to weather have only gotten in maybe 3 flights.  Of the few issues, the 4K video feed while recording was the one I saw right off the bat. That seems to be fixed (would of hated to have brought this upon release and just now getting that fixed).

That said, I noticed something odd on my test flight yesterday that I want to share for others to keep an eye out for incase this is a new bug.

P4P+
OAT was 50F
wind was 15-20mph
Flown on Nantucket MA over Sanford Farm which is a 3 mile stretch of preserve land so nothing but trees and open fields.
I was plugged into the HDMI with OSD showing for my Headplay to test that out as well.

I take off to check range and signal strength (spoiler it passed my first approval test) I got about 6000 feet out no biggy but then I put it in sports mode to return. At some point all my sensors and flight info started reading incorrectly. It would show VS up climbing when I was bring it down. It would show I was moving at HS of 10-15 when I was hoovering. It would show I had avoidance sensors when in Sport mode and not when I was in P mode. Basically all the info to show distance, speed, and sensors was wrong.


It flew normal and all the input controls felt right but when I got it back to me it was still showing distance and height from home point ot be way off like 70 feet away when it was right over where it took off from and much higher but I forgot what that reading was.

I landed, restarted and did some local flying and everything was back to normal.  So I do not know if this was a one time thing or something that might happen again so please be advised to this and keep an eye out for it in case this is something that becomes a know issue.
