I want to love Autel but, I'm afraid I'm being called and tempted more by a major competitor herein called "the darkside". I still have not purchased my own X-Star Premium (XSP) as yet as I have been following the posts here, elsewhere, and waiting for the new firmware to become official (September I think). I have had access to XSP's through two coworkers who have them. They too are seeing some of the issues being reported in the forums. Why do there seem to be so many issues? A good deal of them seem to come after "upgrading" to the latest firmware (although still beta version). There seems to so many problems with video dropouts, constant warnings of video signal weakness, erratic behavior in flight, signal losses even at short distances, magnetic interference, battery issues, and more. The "darkside" doesn't seem to have these or near as many problems. Are the XSP's really this problematic or can most of the issues be attributed to user errors? Sorry for babbling a bit here folks but, I really don't want to spend on something that could be problematic from the git-go. Calm my fears folks! I really don't want to move to the "darkside".
