I updated the Z3 firmware without issue and made some test flights.

With the follow parameters it was worse than before.   The image would not even stabilize at close range, it kept breaking up.   

App 3.0.2
Aircraft: 1.9.1.30
RC: 1.6.0
Z3 Camera: 1.9.1.4

With the following parameters it worked much better.   Had only one instance of the image breaking up.  I flew at a distance of 700' away at an altitude of 150' AGL

App 2.8.7
Aircraft: 1.9.1.30
RC: 1.6.0
Z3 Camera: 1.9.1.4

DJI --  Should i send the camera back or wait for another firmware update.   I never opened a service ticket on this issue as i have been waiting for a FW update.

Thanks

Since the 2.8.7 app works fine for you, I would suggest you wait, because if it's an app issue we can always improve with a later app.

Hi Thor
I see this is mainly an update for the Z3 camera and not the Inspire 1 V2 X3. Will they be releasing another update that will help the Inspire 1 V2 with the X3 camera soon also?  We have been waiting for a long while

I tested the Z3 firmware update today and the spin up problem is not there any more (Thank goodness), but I had MAJOR issues with the live feed.... I checked the SD card and the video looked fine there (except for one instance).  I wish we could get the ongoing problems with this Z3 solved.  It has been way too long guys....

So, Z3 users - did this fix the problems with startup and live feed? What is the consensus?
I am hovering over the button for a large purchase of Inspire gear and would very much prefer specifying the Z3 over the X3.

DJI rarely allows refund after the refund window(7 days), unless the dealer is willing to take ( 30 days for Amazon and BestBuy)   This is according to my experience

Anyone else experiencing this... Firmware updated all appears well. My problem is (same as last firmware for Z3) the left wheel which is supposed to move the camera up and down, as it did on the X3, moves the Z3 left and right. It's annoying as I usually fly the inspire in the direction of a shot, I have to use the touch screen to move it up and down. What's up with this? I don't know of any setting to change it.

Mine was acting the same way when using latest DJI go app.   Very annoying.  I have an ipad with an older version that i use when flying Z3 and it performs better.

I really hope they are working on these issues.

Z3 was intended to be used on a drone, so no mic on it.
