I just upgraded to 4.3.1-rc1 and flown several times. No issues noted. I find the throttle response on Stabilized and Acro became a bit more sensitive. Not a big drama. We’ll keep on testing and update this thread if I find something. Autotune message is already clear and not truncated. Thanks for fixing this.
