Hi all

Im starting to feel that the A3 controller is either release premature or its not as advanced in some functions as the A2 was, here are my remaining issues for the moment.

1. Landing gear status is "up" even when its actually down, including the remote switch also is set to down, i have tried changing it to reverse, but i cannot  affect anything in the "Landing gear" page, and the LED on the landing  gear is green.

2. Channel mapping, before on the A2 i could see  all the channes on the remote, and map them to an output port, but now  that functionality is gone, i can only map 4 channels thats marked with  D1, D2, D3 and D4, but none of these seems to be linked to a button. (btw im using the LB2)

3. The Return-to-home, button does not always work, sometimes i makes a  sound when i press it, and sometimes its dead. (Im hoping this is  caused by the lack for GPS satelites)

4. Voltage warning, this i cannot set manually now, only make minor adjustments to the predetermined values.

Now, i was one of the first adopters of the A2 flightcontroller, and back then it took me about 2 hours to get this configured and i was ready to fly, this however have been until now been taking me 2 days so fare, and im still not ready to fly, and i must say, i have never seen that many test crashes after installing the new A3, i haft to admit im a bit concerned.

WTF DJI, why did you limit such a professionel product? I feel so restricted, and i have always been a fan of you products, we have an Inspire, S900, S1000 and Ronin-M, due to the flexibility, but i must admit, that after upgrading both our birds with LB2 and A3 pro, im starting to feel that im wasting my money on a product that get poor with each release!, please release a firmware soon that fixes above issues, else we need to go other ways in the future.

I can see that others have simular issues, whi DJI, why? http://forum.dji.com/thread-59287-1-1.html

I responded to your question via facebook. Short answer is once the system is armed all function will be available. Currently no mapping of outputs are available and voltage settings are working as designed.

Yes, and thank you for that.

What about the missing mapping of the Zenmuse gimbal, Record and movement are mapped, including mode through the DJI GO App, but, Apeture, which is a function on the Zenmuse has been left out? This is a super important function for almost all Zenmuse Z15 owners, as light changes during flight, depending if you filming horizon or down, so this is really critical stuff you have removed.

I have a wish that the left dial adjust the aperture on the slave, its currently not in use on the slave, so this would be ideal.
