      Apologies for the last comment this was for the PowerUP FPV, not the 3.0. Backing both projects gets confusing. :P

      Any updates on shipping schedules? Based on what I recall from the last update (Oct 10), this was shipping then.

      Great, summer is back so figured I would take them out for a spin, but they will not charge anymore.
      So I now have 4x power up 3.0 that does not work. Great product.

      I doubt it, but don't take my word for it - I'd read through https://www.faa.gov/uas/registration/
      must register if it "weighs more than 0.55 lbs. (250 g)"

      Hi Shai, I have bought BASIC PACKAGE and added one more package for multi control.

      Yesterday I tried to charge these, second module (not used) has worked, but first module (used only once) could not charged.
      Is there something to try?

      Best Regards

    31. Shai Goitein 3-time creator on October 26, 2015

      Hey Radovan
      Update absolutely should work assuming your module was charged before long term storage.
