Have you been able to update the firmware the first time?
For Android: If yes, remove AUTEL EXPLORER from your app, delete everything that is AUTEL related and then install the app again.
Let me know

Hey I'm not sure how many batteries you have, but since you are saying you didn't get a prompt till the 4th fly, it could've been a firmware mismatch between the bird and one of the batteries, cause I updated to this new 2.2.0 firmware on Friday, and I haven't seen any more prompts to update ( I only have 1 battery )

Well That is strange, I'll power on my bird when I get home from work today and see if I get another prompt . Have you gotten any more prompts to update after the last time ?

#3 is interesting; I thought Autel didn't have any no-fly restrictions?

A bunch. Autel’s website hasn’t been updated yet, but there were quite a few. Gimbal stability in windy conditions, nighttime focus, a bunch E2Pro specific stuff and something about H265 codec that I can recall off the top of my dome.

After the update it flew like a charm even in 35 mph winds here in Indiana today. No drift into the winds!

H265 codec? That might be the 10 bit everyone was complaining about not having.
