Sorry if I am asking the question again but it seems like the last several firware upgrades have degreaded the Inspire 1 & 2 flight speed. I am not getting the speed on calm days. Currently I get around 30-35 mph on both, maybe a bit higher on the 2. I still can get higher speed when the Inspire 2 is in sport mode. I normally fly in GPS mode

I have the latest and greatest versions for the Inspire and on IOS using a iPad Pro

My Inspire 1 was a rocketship before V1.3 of the firmware.
Has flown like a pig ever since, but I'm used to it.

All I can think of is the batteries heated up  during  high speed flight  and they had to scale it back . I agree prior to 1.3 they were MUCH faster .

I had a HUGE tailwind , Lucky I made it back  ( fighting the headwind on the return leg ) as it was very difficult as I remember .

Some have found out the hard way what can happen if you don't get back soon enough in those kinds of wind, but thinking about it, specially Mavic owners. You were flying in 40 hour winds? Brave soul!

Did not realize that would make a diff, will disable the sensors and test it out, thank you

Never had a battery issue myself, but that could have been a factor.
I would be very happy to revert back to pre V1.3 FW and app - so many things broken since then!
