Version 2.0.4 available which fixes the landscape video bug! Besides that:

-You can now ignore the vision alert. Useful for flying in the dark.
-Improves german localization.

Have just seen and updated :)
Not that I thought there was anything wrong with the other version!

Did some flying with the update no problems during flight.
So for flying the app looks good.

Did miss the button to go back to the entry screen from the control panel though.

Other thing which I have noticed is a lot of freezing of the app when not connected to the drone.
For example when changing setting or checking nav data.

Anyone encountering these problems.

Nevertheless great app! Thank you.

I just bought it yesterday for the iPhone4s and it is unusable unless the drone is connected. It either crashes on startup, or freezes after 10 seconds or so. I haven't tried it with my iPad yet.

I am interested in checking out some of the tracking features for it. The 'lights' mods are pretty cool to have.

Hi. Just update DroneControl excitedly wanting to downgrade my firmware because I have wifi drop outs on the latest update. So I downgraded to 2.1.20 however now after the drone restarts I cant seem to connect the wifi. I see the drone and I get an IP of 192.168.1.2 Subnet 255.255.255.0 Router 192.168.1.1 however none of the controllers (DroneControl FreeFlight etc) seems to recognise the drone. Any suggestions anyone or have I stuffed up something?

Thanks in advance

Yes this issue can indeed happen when you are up- or downgrading a firmware version. You can fix this by double tapping the status line above where it says "not connected". A menu will popup, just follow the directions.

Usually it is shown in the start menu. But the fix you just applied did overwrite this version information.
