Inspire 2, fully updated. Normal operations at 5.8 GHz, but the range on 2.4 has dropped to essentially nothing (it's a few hundred feet) since the system now consistently reports strong wireless interference.

In known low RF areas (nothing around for a mile or so), including areas where I could easily fly out 2500', I'm now completely gimped. It went from being a reasonably long range platform, to close to useless for what I do.

Tested with two radios (same result), and made sure the app device (tested the CS 5.5 and an iPad) had wifi off. Cell phones were left in the car, or placed in airplane mode.

Any ideas?

Before the update, the strong interference message was rare for me. I haven't taken this one more than a mile out, but it used to be nearly perfect on 2.4 at that distance.

I haven't flown my inspire 2 much lately, but can tell you that I have noticed recently with the latest firmware that there is significant degradation overall in the signal and my appetite to fly further is less due to lack of confidence in the platform.

Hi, folks! Can you gentlemen mention the FIRMWARE VERSION (Number) where this issue is happening?!
