Hi Inspire pilots. I updated my Inspire Pro to the latest Firmware 188.8.131.52 a while back and immediately realized the aircraft range is Horrible to not acceptable. I don't know if this is being discussed already on any other threads. I have been busy and just been using my other DJI platforms until I had some time to do some safe range testing. I flew my Inspire 1 Pro today at my local wide open grass field and I literally was 300' away if that and well within line of sight when the HD video starts to just freeze and pixelate. I rotate yaw and the video screen goes dark. DJI Go app shows transmission lost. I can still visually see perfectly clear the aircraft orientation and still have radio to craft controls. I point the nose towards me and fly back and literally the video signal did not return until I was like 20 feet away. Before I updated the firmware, I have Never had any issues with range at all. I know many of you and us Inspire pilots have moved onto other platforms. I just can not let my expensive investment with X5 become a paper weight. If any of you can point me in the right direction as to what my options are, I would very much appreciate any information. I can't remember what Firmware I was on that had No issues. I would love to revert back to an actual working firmware with this Inspire. It's just not right for support for this model to go out the window. Canon, Sony, Fuji still have product support for older models. These are old but they are not obsolete. Thank you everyone and Have a great new year!
