Just in case anyone missed it, 1.1.6.5 APP to go with 2.3.3. Firmware is now available as BETA from AUTEL site and I guess Play store etc. Mine seems to have loaded automatically, some nice new features, change lots of settings for sensitivity in all directions and speed, stop etc.

At last… but seems only for 2, cant find anything useful for 1.

Cheers

I’ll wait for someone else to test a beta app with their new drone :rofl:

Let us know when it’s out of beta :grimacing:

Do you know “everyone” :joy:

Seriously though. It’s my go to for the DJI stuff. I found it when I was trying to upgrade my S/Controller and it just wouldn’t update. Got it from there with Dumldore straight on no messing.
