Well, fortunately there is a difference to 'erratic behaviour' and 'flying straight up 100m, dropping to the ground like a stone, and bursting into a massive fireball'.

DJI GO sounds like it would be relatively unaffected as it doesn't provide VR features, so it may be worth upgrading the P4P so long as it isn't used with Litchi, Autopilot, or whatever.

I'd still be waiting for a fix, rather than consciously upgrading my firmware to achieve erratic behaviour!

Yep... 28 mins advertised. More like 22 mins in the real world.

I experience more like 25mins a charge! btw i think i could do it 113064584.2 laps back and forth given powerconsumption would be the same and i could've turned on a dime. Did i win a pound?

Do you use those specific modes in Litchi or Autopilot? Just checking - it appears to be related to some firmware actions only.

The only other minor problem is how did you average light speed back and forth given that you had to slowdown and accelerate again at the end of each lap. Perhaps it had better be a circular lap and then all you have to deal with is a bit less g force and more giddiness.

I defined i could turn on a dime/spot/point etc without slowing down, unless we talk about slowing down the speed of light (good luck, and no twisting the patterns of fotons doesn't count as C=constant). As for a circular lap, where is the fun in reducing g-force??

Mariuss:

We're talking light here, so to quickly change directions, without losing momentum: Just use mirrors....

Keep Smiling,

Yeah thats why i calculated in a linear motion and "turned on a dime" !
