Pfffff thats 78mph! Wow

I have read conflicting figures and never believed any tbh.

Is that the top speed?

I read a phantom will go 20-25mph too and wasn't sure.

How did you track the speed? with the app or did you have a separate gps/gsm tracker attached?

Great news and relieving. They will get it down pat, just a little time and reports from the community. Now on the speed did you change the motors to Jet Turbines. At that speed no worry about someone with a Shotgun taking you out of the air

I'm convinced I can get 90 mp/h

Definitely going to attempt 40m/s (90Mph) this weekend

Pretty sure the airframe is good for it

How do I know if I updated the firmware successfully. Status indicator never moved, it stayed on 0% for 20 minutes. I was getting the D DD sound so I restarted. However after looking at the generated text file on the SD card the update status read "CANCELED".  The RC updated successfully, but not so sure of the aircraft. Please help!

Look at your "about" page and check the firmware version
There is already some pics posted of what the versions should be post updating

Got mine to upgrade today. Took a little time playing around with it and switched out two different SD cards but all is well. Flew it outside with no issues. Took it inside (6000 sqft. empty warehouse) and flew it for a few minutes. Did fine for about 3 minutes then all of sudden it lunged forward quickly on its own. I quickly pulled it back and landed it before a crash could happen. Only thing I did not do was run an IMU check before flight. I will do this tomorrow and see if this helps. Other than that one mishap it flew perfectly.

From what I've been reading .... There are three responses. Failed, which speaks for itself! Successful, which means an update was required and done, and cancelled, meaning the update was already there and not required. I am only repeating what others have written do NOT take my word for it.

What have you changed the gains to in order to get those kind of speeds.  Don't think I'd ever attempt but I'm curious as to how you are obtaining those speeds.
