the aircraft.

No risk?  Sheesh, some people can't even fly the "official" DJI software without a flyaway, a crash or some other you-won't-believe-what-happened disaster!  (ok, maybe that was kinda a wiseacre comment but hey, maybe minimal risk would be more accurate)

If you reed the buglist in the 1th post, a fly away or cras is possible with 1.4.0010 too.

Anyone can indeed decide for himself what he installed on his copter and what not.

No risk, no fun.

No risk, no fun?  Heck, I can have all kinds of fun without any risk involved.  While my fun meter doesn't spin nearly as fast as it did when I was flinging myself out of airplanes I do manage to keep myself amused with minimal risk to life and limb (and Phantom).

I wasn't making any judgements, just an observation.

Anyon ...

I downloaded, installed and flew with it the morning it was released. I was hoping it would address the "lost signal" message and loss of live video feed that I've been experiencing since updating to 1.4.10. It didn't solve that problem but I didn't have any other issues either. It didn't fly away or crash! Wish I would have been able to test it more but had to go out of town for a couple of weeks.

Risk is DJI's middle name.

It is bleeding edge technology, to pass the possible competitors, they take risks and try to catch up.

I'm pretty sure this newversion will come with a bunch of new bugs as well so, relax and try to enjoy.

I have read a bunch of complaints about waypoint mission distance. Yet according to the rumor it is increasing from 15km to 40km. What am I missing?

40km is for the Matrice.

It has two batteries and flies over 40 minutes.

For something so complicated and the amount of functionality it has, that isn't many tweaks/bug fixes.

Thank you Knarfboy, Very interesting changes
I have a request To DJI Autum
as youre very active in this forum, please can you transmit to DJI this inquiry for new firmxare extra modification
As a professional filmmaker I need sometimes to fly very low
I would like firmware to allow lower minimun altitude in POI , follow me and waypoints modes
Please lower the altitude limits to 1 meter, and the poi radius to 1,5 meter
If there is legal issues with increased risks, add a warning and ask pilots to sign before overriding today limits
And allow us to pick a POI and fly any altitude under this POI or takoff point; as sometimes takoff point is more elevated than the flight
Many many thanks too keep improving this fantastic birds and app
Next for me: inspire & X5R!
kind regards
M

Finally a positive message. ;)  I agree.  For all that these birds do, that is a very small list of "bugs" in comparison to the very large list of what should go wrong. Go DJI!
