    DJI released a new firmware V1.08 for Phantom 2!

    What’s new?


    Firmware
    PHANTOM 2 Main Controller Firmware V1.08
    1.In Phantom 2 mode, users can set a new home point manually when the aircraft is in “Ready to fly” status as long as a home point has been recorded automatically.
    2.In a Failsafe situation, if less than 6 GPS satellites are found for more than 20 seconds, the aircraft will descend automatically.
    3.Fixed a glitch that prevented descent after the 2nd level low battery capacity warning occurs when in Naza-m mode.


    Assistant Software
    1.PHANTOM 2 and PHANTOM 2 VISION will share the PHANTOM 2 Assistant Software.


    User Manual
    1.Added the 8-Pin port sequence on AVL58 connection diagrams.
    2.Added an important note: Keep the wireless video transmission module and other communicating devices away from the compass during installation and connection to avoid interference.
    3.Added a note about automatic descent when GPS satellites are found less than 6 for more than 20 seconds while in Failsafe.


    Upgrade Notes
    1.Upgrade the main controller and central board firmware to the latest version using Assistant Software V1.08. Be sure the central board firmware is V1.0.1.19 or above, otherwise there will be malfunction caused by version mismatch.
    2.Upgrade iOSD mini, iOSD Mark II and H3-2D firmware to the latest version before using them with PHANTOM 2.
    3.If you have any problems during upgrade, please contact your dealer or DJI Customer Service.

    DJI, you are a bunch of crooked car salesmen! You got some nerve to get on here advertising your stuff and not even answer the guys question in between your posts! I will NEVER buy anything from you.

    Where are you located, Nooky?
    As far as I know, their dealers in Germany and UK have stock for Phantom 2.
    You can go to DJI website for the Phantom 2 dealer list and find the one who is the nearest to you.

    You know what, it seems DJI has set up a customer service call center and repair center in LA, USA.
    I hope that will improve the service a lot.
