OK then, it certainly appears there are some peculiarities within the App. and or f/w file itself.
Hopefully they are just that, and will not necessarily affect the flight status or recording material.
I've found that if I had rebooted the camera App. the status may then indicate Normal, but once the App. was powered down for any length of time the camera upgrade required message would once again reappear upon startup.
I personally have found a few separate issues with the camera App. which I've been attempting to work out as they are not fully described within the pages of the manual.
I had also found the camera upgrade required message had appeared when using the previous F/W as well as on the new 1.1.9 version, so I'm not sure what's going on with that.
