Just throwing this out so everyone knows. The US Government is changing the National GPS system and older GPS may not work after April 6th of 2019.
Please see attached from the US Homeland Security https://ics-cert.us-cert.gov/sites/default/files/documents/Memorandum_on_GPS_2019.pdf
There is also many Website talking about this coming! Just Google GPS Roll back for April 6th 2019.
I am new to this group but have been flying Radio Aircraft since the 70's. I have been a Electronics Technician my whole life but not knowing enough but what brand GPS Engine that is installed in our Quad Copters. With this change the GPS receiver will not get the correct Time and date so therefore getting a Satellite fix will not work right!
I guess this would be a good question for DJi.
Again if anyone heard if we will be good operating our Quads after that date please post!
Thanks
