Just installed it - the readme shows only RF performance improvement. That's kind of interesting, wonder what the change is. I haven't had a problem in flight that I'm aware of but have had several times where the DX18 wouldn't link up with the RX properly. Be interesting to see if that changes now.
New Features & Improvements
• Enhancements to improve RF performance.
• Automatically disables France mode as it is no longer necessary.

there are a few other repairs they made in the program but none that really effect Heli's..
I haven't done mine yet because I have to export my settings...
Did you do that? and if not, did you lose anything?

no, you don't have to export the settings for this particular update. This update is from 1.04 to 1.04c. I did save them all of just as a precaution though.

When you update from an earlier version to 1.04 you *must* save off all your model config's before doing the update. 1.04 does wipe them all. no big deal to import them back in and rebind, at least it wasn't for me.

on the 1.04 side I really do like the update because it gives me the ability to go to the setup menu without having to power cycle or go to/from another model. much more straight forward.

After these current updates with RF enhancements you may or may not need to rebind.Just because everything seems to work ok isnt a 100% indication.What you need to do is look at the DSM2/DSMX indicator in the top left of the screen.If it is there you are ok.If it is not you need to rebind even if everything seems to be working.
