Manually flashing the drones isnt realistic for our use case.
We will have 10+ drones flying a show on stage and cant spend an hour reflashing all the drones if someone where to nudge the base stations.

Any idea when you guys will have time so solve this issue?

Thank you!

This did indeed fixed the navigation problem, but caused a new issue for us.
The drone flies as expected for 1-3 steps and then completely shuts down in air, reboots and freezes.

You might be hitting #531. We are investigating the problem right now. If you use a commit before the static memory change (for example 6ba33b7ce9), you should not see the problem.
