Fly my diabolo with 5.3 feels smoother for sure, hovering inverted mowing the grass was fun

Also just upgraded the TDR to 5.3 and it's a lot less sensitive to elevator at higher speeds. Really pleased with the new firmware update.

helinutz: ok!? interesting notice, I almost crasched mine before because of that, I lowered the agility alot then, maybe have to adjust it again when I put in 5.3

Have only tried it on 450 and 550 for now. No problems, nothing to reset, but I rebound the DSMX-satellites. Nice with a fail-safe feature to set it whenever you like and not in the bind process.

I thought the 550 felt a little more stable when hovering, and locked in in flight, but I don't know. Could have been placebo also

I find this interesting because I noticed that my SK-720 seems to be smoother on all my helis since I upgraded its firmware to the their new release about a month ago.

It seems that they are in lock step.

Unfortunately I'm not ready for high speed runs yet, so I can't compare notes there.

Have not tried out the TDR after the upgrade yet. Will do so next weekend. Just ran out of time since I had to work on most of the fleet for the upgrade. Most machines seem to work great with 5.3

this weekend have been a two-day meeting with lots of flying TDR w 5.3, only two packs with my old blades then I switched to some other new blades so I can't make a good compare really. Only I can say that the agility on high speed seemed similar so I didn't need to adjust it (my speed flight mode has quite low agitily as it is, feels like a Formula 1 racer in big curves really, solid like a rock with just enough maneuverability)
