As I've stated numerous times, if you are having difficulties with the Standard and cannot remedy it will all the troubleshooting steps then you need to send it in for repair. People have done that when they first started experiencing something, a few weeks later they get their aircraft back and problem solved.
Contact support and send it in.

I've given you the answers, if there was a firmware update coning soon I'd tell you to wait if possible so you don't have to pay for shipping.
Since I didn't say that to you or anyone else then that means that there is no firmware coming soon.

Thanks DJI for beta testing your firmware. My own testing of the firmware (with some trepidation) went perfectly. It seems to have completely fixed the altitude drop issue. I did run into a few rough edges with the beta testing process itself which I would like to see ironed out:

When the DJI Go app syncs flights to DJI's servers, there is no way to actually see those flight records on the servers. We need a web page where we can see our own flights, download the records and provide links for when we send bug reports or crash reports to DJI.

DJI currently asks that we use their Assistant app that runs on desktop computers to download the flight logs. Unfortunately the Assistant app is not code signed for the Mac. There is really no excuse for this. It is simple to code sign an app. DJI just needs to do it. Unsigned apps are not safe to download or install and I refuse to do it.

It is easy to download data from the App using iTunes. These contain FlightRecords as text files but I have a feeling that they are only for what the controller sees. If that's the case then the DJI Go app should sync with the drone when it is back in contact with it so that it has a copy of the drone's flight records. This would avoid the need for the Assistant app.

I just dived right in and I upgraded both the firmware from 0.301 to the latest using the DJI assistant, as well as the app to 2.8.4

I have to say, the upgrade process was a complete success, no issues at all.  I turned off the P4 after the firmware upgrade was completed.  I then switched batteries, and opened the DJI assistant again, and just waited. After about a minute, I saw a prompt that I need to upgrade, I clicked Yes, and this upgrade was quick.

I then let it cool in front of the air conditioner, and I calibrated the IMU, then gimbal, then the GPS and finally I calibrated the vision system using the DJI assistant.

I then put my settings back to their original ones, including the Home Point Altitude because all of these changed.

I did a quick test using both batteries and everything looks good.  No more altitude drop now and it seems very stable.

My only issue is that the actual recorded sd card video is not as smooth as before when the P4 turns. (I use 1080p 60 frames, No color)
Any suggestions?

I am looking at the gimbal settings, which must have changed, so I will need some suggestions how to optimize for smooth video recording again.

Gimbal Mode = Follow
My Gimbal Speed is 60
Gimbal EXP = 21
Enable Upward = Off
Gimbal Smooth Track = 20
Enable Synchronized Gimbal Pan Follow = Off

I am thinking I should reduce the Smooth Track and enable the Pan follow?  

Its very windy now so I can not test it (it was n ot windy when I was testing).
I am curious if someone has the optimal settings.

Thanks!

I think it's the Yaw End Point setting, which must have changed with the upgrade.  I had to reduce it to 110.
All other settings were close to those mentioned.

I will test and I will offer feedback later.
----------------------------------------------------------


Unrelated but maybe some Litchi users can chime in:
Litchi still is not maintaining the transmission channel to Auto.  I thought the latest P4 firmware was required, but the 2 issues remain:
Even though I set the Preview Quality to the lowest 4 MBps, it goes up to 10Mbps and the channel goes from Auto to some random channel.  This has caused Signal loss when the P4 is away from the RC.

Unfortunately it seems like it didn't fix the altitude drop while hovering for me. My P4 still slowly drops when hovering about  two to three feet up in the air? I haven't gotten the time to try flying patterns just hovering.

Do you have a gimbal guard fitted ?

If none then perform a VNS calibration via the Assistant app  and if your still getting height drop in hover with this FW then it's a hw issue and needs to be sent in

Hight loss when hovering is not normal.

For some reason when I updated my P4 via the GO App my compass say it needs to be calibrated. But when I do the calibration, and I have done it at many different locations, it still says I still need to calibrate the compass. Also when when I check my sensors compass 2 is disconnected. I tried updated through DJI Assistant but that didn't work either. I'm currently downgrading my P4's firmware.

Upgrade to .503 worked great for me using GO App on Android Tablet.  I Really Liked that this one was a ONE Click to download then update.  As best I recall .411 update required download from one place in app, then upgrade from another place, a little confusing for first timer.
  My P4 just came back from repair including replacing VPS unit.   I still have the HOVER Height Issue in AUTO Takeoff.  IT will rise to 4ft then slowly drop to 2Ft.  Optical height shows correctly as 2ft, bar height shows 4ft.  If I do the same in manual I can rise it to 4ft and it will sit with both heights reading the correct 4ft.
