    On the positive side of things let's talk distance, shall we? let's take a break from all the negative post and talk about something positive for a second, just a second, not saying all the negative post aren't helpful, cuz they are, but i would like to know what's the furthest you guys have flown this sexy piece of machinery, on sunday I went 10400 feet, scary but fun. Post your distance on here and let me know

    Wow..that's impressive. .
    not sure why you're concerned about updating new firmware. .
    I don't believe it has anything to do with long distance flights. .
    if you're going to have a problem the distance you're at won't make much difference. .
    the only difference you'll experience flying in los and blos is in los you'll see it malfunction and blos you wont..
    same outcome. .imo..
    Turbo. .

    I have full radio signal at 4000ft but my video starts to flicker and warn me. It switches a few times before it even gets there.

    People have done 6KM (19.000ft) with stock antennas with the Inspire 1. Sure is impressive and under good conditions.. :p

    How in the world is this possible? My area must be loaded with junk signals.

    Nice and over water so less interference. What was you control and signal level at that range?! Did you ever loose video or quality during the flight?

    Not trying to rain on your parade --- but some Inspire pilots are already reporting 4+ mile range with the FPVLR.com antennas.

    10400 feet is like a warmup walk in the park for them.

    :p
