    I have made 2 weeks ago the remote comtrol and airplane update with the last 1.9.6. Everthing OK until 10 minutes fly...and suddenly no more GPS and some of the controls did not work...I managed to return my bird save ( just an upside down and 1 propeller broken). I tried to update both devices again but the full control of the commands and the GPS did not come again. I finally sent them to DJI Netherland and they admitted that this issue was due to a failure during the update process. They changed the GPS and send it to me at no cost....should arrive next Monday. Next time I will wait before updating....

    Good thing you sent it back for repair, before it flew the coop. Hahaha
    Hopefully the next Phantom 3, will be trouble free and you will begin to exerience the exhilaration that most of us Phantom Pilots enjoy, each and every flight. ;-)
