Yes I saw your mission using pre 2.4. Unfortunately my experience was not the same. I didn't check Solar activity that day so although I had 7 sats (by my GPS status LED) the GPS horiz accuracy may have been bad on the day I tested. I also had issues with EZ-GUI and WinGUI so was not impressed.

No. TX endpoints need to be 0 1500 2000. Set 1100 as Min Throttle in MW Config. The reason you need enough Min Throttle is to keep props spinning reliably & synced to prevent them stopping when throttle is set to minimum. If you need to rapidly apply power during descent you need all motors resp...
