the problem is not RTH for me - it's the awful lag that makes watching the screen absolutely useless- it's like a really old laptop struggling to play low resolution video with outdated codecs. version 3.1.1 did not have this issue so it's not my phone like they want you to believe.

I had laggy video, cleared my phone's cache and all was good.

Video lag, messages about loss of connection. All these pale into insignificance when you put in to perspective the loss of and damage caused to customers Phantoms due to a total and negligent lack of communication over the 3.1.2 fiasco. More then any of the 'little' glitches that happen when you have to communicate in unknown 'frequency noisy' area's, this one episode will have done more damage to DJI's reputation than issues over the whole of 2015 combined!
It could of cause have been mitigated by a simple burst email to every registered customer and a blanket communication to all their retailers about the 3.1.2 issues. But they chose not to, so they are due any and all fall out that is aimed squarely at them.

Hey Folks, glad to find the forum.  I am a newbie to the Mavic Pro.  When I first got my new Mavic, I upgraded the firmware on the quad and the controller.  I installed the latest DJI GO 4 app that you all are talking about.  Just in case when I use my Galaxy S7edge I restart before I fly, make sure all apps are closed, turn off WiFi and turn the screen brightness all the way up.  I now have 8 flawless flights and couldn't be more pleased.  The app has it's quirks in the academy etc. but while flying it has been perfect.  I'm probably not pushing it to the limits you folks are, but today I would give the app 4.5-5/5.  

Just my two cents and I hope that I'll be able to contribute in the near future.

I ran Litchi on a tab A and I think it worked better than DJI go.Just make sure you force close GO before you start litchi.

I use a galaxy s2. No problems at all. Litchi seems to be compatible with a wider variety of phones and tabs. Go the the Litchi web site and see if it will work with your mobile device.

Received blocking message today while updating google maps. I am using 1.6.8 with 2.8.4 go app. Cleared app cache and message went, now able to connect again with 2.8.4 app. Have achieved 624m unmodded with this set up. Don't update maps and all will be well.

Had a chance to fly today, but wanted to calibrate the compass because of a new camera install on the bottom of the mavic. I got this tip, so did the calibration in litchi instead. But found the fix here

http://www.phantompilots.com/threads/forced-go-app-update-workaround.106488/

From that thread, The way that got rid of the nag permanently is to force stop the go app, then using Kirby's post (minus the app cache clear, it's not needed).
"
1. Install Hosts Editor from Play Store
2. Add the following entry:
IP Address: 127.0.0.1
Hostname: upgrade.bgcentre.com
"

Then open file list.json in the cache directory and change 3.1.3 at the top to the version you're using. I run it in aircraft mode and it worked great. Even thinks my firmware is up to date. I fly in litchi anyway, use go for calibrations.

You also need to understand that DJI needs to ensure people who are not aware of the 3.1.2 581 app may have home point issues and not know.
The only way to make sure is that everyone is forced to do an app update. They identified the issue and fixed it.

Freedom off choice always should prevail !

I too hope that DJI will resolve the "must update" issue.  I called them yesterday evening and was told I needed to e-mail the tech support folks.  I have been flying with v 2.7.2 on my LG V10 successfully for months and had even tried some of the updates but ended up having to roll back.  Now I have no option and can not fly with my LG V10.  I am unaware of this Litchi app but will investigate it.

I liked mine fine. Way Points I could go backwards along same path I had set by pulling the reverse throttle. I almost crashed into WalMart thinking It would do the same after a update.

I got the update and it failed now I am sitting through the dreaded beep I used to get a couple years ago. Don't know if it will stop or not anyone know. I guess I will keep on letting it beep till I go crazy or it loads correctly this time.

I just checked and I have 3.1.5 and altho I only have a few small flights in beginner mode.After reading through these threads and seeing I might only be able to fly 400 ft. away from me isn't what I expect if that is true.It sounds like DJI has software or programming problems but why are we as Drone flyers being punished IF their software is causing problems ?.

What they shouldnt do is make updating mandatory. I havent used my PS3S for several month, headed north with all kit charged then found out - in the middle of nowhere that I couldnt run the DJI app as I need to register the new software. Just how am I going to do that miles for wifi and a phone signal let alone 4G! Its absolute bollox. Dumped the DJI and going Litchi. I wont be buying a new drone from DJI either. Customer focused my arse.
