Why did only the A3 and not the A3 on the M600 get an upgrade?

Dear DJI

Why did you only provide the firmware upgrade 1.5.0.0 for the A3 and not the A3 on the Matrice 600? We could also use some of the new features!

Not sure fjeppe.
I've just flown my S1000 with LB2 on the new firmware and it is a different machine.
Braking is now smooth and not so violent as before.
Horizontal speed is now more controllable as it now stays at the same speed for a given input rather than accelerating as it used to.
Multiple flight modes are now combined  with GPS mode which allows another function on the mode switch which is sport.
Propellers no longer speed up prior to shut down.
New high wind warning, didn't see it on the previous version.
Connectivity much better since last Go update.
The whole experience is much smoother than before.
My only issue is that F port functionality was only available on SBus, not LB2 which I really don't understand as it was available on A2/LB2?
I'm not sure why only none DJI TX's get a feature that should be available to all?
Perhaps someone at DJI could explain when and if it will be available to LB2 users?

So F port mapping is still locked down, so we haft to wait another 5 months of screaming at DJI before we can map LB2 remotes on the F ports, jesus.

Looks like it?
I would understand better if we knew what was happening and whether  or not there are any problems with it.
At least we would know what to expect.
I can't understand why it is available on non DJI products and not LB2?

Yeah, it seems really wierd, when you buy their own products, your limited, but when you dont, you get more functions.

And to top if off, when you buy their most expensive platform, you get even less flexiblity at your disposal. WTF

The M600 will be receiving a similar firmware update soon. Since the M600 uses Lightbridge 2 which has not yet received the firmware update needed to take advantage of the F channel assignment with the stand alone A3 system, the update would most likely coincide with the separate LB2 one.

Jamie, so will this mean once the LB2/A3/M600 gets the update, people who are using the A3/LB2 on other airframes, such as the S900, get the ability to map the F-ports too?

Thanks for covering some of the updates, these certainly will be nice on the M600 once they provide an update. The F-ports are still frustrating, but I know I'm not alone...

Well, it took them 4 month to make the A3 work with channel mapping on the S-bus, sooo, im guessing another 4 month?

I hope that it doesn't take another 4 months just to get the same functionality on the M600, that the A3 Stand alone got. I hope they will fix some of the problems with the A3 Pro on the M600 too.
And that Sport Mode sounds Interesting.
