If I understand correctly, do you mean that your battery charges itself slowly?
In cold weather, you'd better warm up the battery first so that it can perform well.

I think they were referring to the top flight speed which i agree is disappointing that its still much slower than it was compared to last year when with my Inspire 1 with TB48 Battery and No Wind, i could reach a topped of 68mph in any direction, North, South East or West, Now its hard enough getting to 40-45mph plus if your flying into a light wind, its more like 20mph, where as last years older FW even if flying into the wind in GPS Mode you could get into the 40's, and with a tail wind you could cruise as fast as 70-75mph....

I'm on the same page bud, been wanting and wishing they would just give us back the speed and potential we paid thousands for. Since it was perfectly fine once before, and loved it, yet they took it away... So sad..

There are a lot of these threads but I can't emphasise enough how important the speed of the Inspire 1 is/was to many of the buyers...

Agreed, but not because we want to race them, we are having a hard time just keeping up with our Moving Subjects in order to film and take action Photos that is our Jobs. Theres nothing more annoying to be going at a good rate of speed i.e. 35mph, and because of the FW throttling back our speed suddenly we're faced with a slow 18mph machine losing the shot that makes our wallets full at the end of the day..

How would you explain to a client that you can get the job done the way they expected you to do it 6 months ago, as they're standing there asking you whats wrong with your Inspire 1 as you have 2 more of them on standby on the ground just incase, but know they'll do the same. Cant tell the stunt driver to go slower when they take the jump can you???? Please fix this, let us use our equipment the way it was intended......

Ok, I'm just catching wind of this since I noticed how slow my Inspire 1Pro was going.  The specs claim that it can go 40mph in no wind.  I can confirm that this is not possible or likely ( I did several tests today and I was able to get up to 35mph for a split second).  Maybe if there is a wind drift but not under normal conditions.  As well, some people say they got there drone up to 70mph in Atti mode??  Is this for real?   Like I said in another thread, I was trying to compare my two I1's , one with update and one without, however DJI is forcing a firmware update so no dice.  
A drone (Inspire 1 Pro) that goes 30-32 mph (average speed full throttle) and a drone that goes 45-50 mph,  are two completely different drones.  I'm not joking when saying I would like to return one of my I1's for a faster drone, since most of my work is in action sports.

It can not be that benefits will be less than every update.
Let's see if they change strategy.
