Well anxious to see what you find here, was just in another forum where a user was swearing there was no firmware issue.Would love to get off the old version and start using the DJI app etc... Anxiously awaiting P4 2016 Flier ;-).

I ran the newest Beta yesterday and flew for about 15 minutes. I'm happy to say that the erratic flying qualities it had are completely gone. Mine had it bad too. My forward sensors would mistakingly see an object; even at altitude and would come to a sudden stop. Once I neutralized the controls and proceeded forward again, all was good but every time I went into a hover and would go forward again, I would have to repeat that procedure. I probably just need to calibrate the sensors which I didn’t do this time. I’m happy so far.

Great, hopefully that issue would be fixed to by release if it is something. Tired of doing work arounds, I often just get the P2 out anymore so I can just turn it on and fly without tons of steps to walk thru atm.

I also updated to the beta v02.00.0600 today and took her for a test flight , 1st impressions are everything seem a lot more stable .
I also noted when taking photos the screen didn`t go blank and it seemed to write to card a lot faster even though I was using the same SD card I have always used.
I have my PFCO test tomorrow so lets hope it stays stable for that !

I had the same experience as Punchbuggy although I did all the calibrations. The Beta firmware update .600 went without issues. BUT
1. When flying into the wind the Drone behaves erratic, but not when flying with the wind.
2. When flying sideways it flies steady.
3. When flying with Obstacle Avoidance Disabled  in P mode the Drones speed is like in Atti mode.
There are already videos and logs in another thread sent to DJI that illustrate this behavior.
After the update the Drone definitely flies smoother but is not fix totally.
There have to be Drones at DJI that behave the same.
I will refresh the firmware and do everything over again to see if it solved the erratic behavior.
DJI why is the Drone flying steady sideways but not forwards and backwards.
Just want to add, all are updated to latest versions. AC, RC and Apps.

And for the record, here was the result of my test reported in another post:

I have just installed Beta 2.000.600 on my P4, RC wanted to update to 1.9.3, and my GO app is iOS 4.1.12.

I did a VPS calibration after successfull update, followed by a gimbal calibration.

Result: there was a breeze, but that was no excuse for how the craft bucked around during a hover about 3m from the ground. I have not seen the P4 as unstable in a hover as that (even with the latest Prod release) - minor jerks, with the occasional sideways jump. I had it hover at 1m, 2m, and 3m with the same instability evident. I was not game to fly it away further, so didn't test the 4K recording.

From my perspective, the firmware was a fail. I'll try to reset to defaults and do a refresh, and then do a second test this weekend. Perhaps yesterday was just due to solar flares or a black cat walking in front of me...

Don't yet. Others have reported success with .0600. As mentioned, I'll reset back to factory defaults and try a refresh on the weekend and see if that makes a difference.

Punchbuggy, I have replied you in this post: https://forum.dji.com/thread-103711-39-1.html #1532. We will appreciate if you can send the flight logs and videos for analysis.

Thanks DJI Susan - I noted the reply in the other thread, but I'm viewing this thread as better to retain all tester's experience. I will refresh the beta firmware before trying again on the weekend (tomorrow). If I have the same experience I'll send logs for that flight.

I'm excited! For the first two flights I can say very smooth and precise control, very good communication between drone and remote controller and no fake movements when flying and when going down at maximum. I'll keep flying and testing but I see, very good job DJI! Keep up the good work and thanks very much for the support!

That's great news! I am waiting for the BETA version from DJI Susan.  Once I get it, I will implement and report back as to how my experience went with my P4.

No more black parts of the screen while taking photos yes. The drone fly's just perfectly, I don't want to describe it so fast but I see many things fixed in this new beta firmware and I will fly with it. I see some 'Basic fly safe' database and some other new things
