Re: Altitude Decreases as a I Climb

Marius,

Figured I'd check in to get an update, but also to provide a link to my flight yesterday. The time is also not showing correctly, even though it IS correct on the GoPro...

Thanks

Re: Altitude Decreases as a I Climb

Hello @rblue

 

I just checked with the team and they have already noted this case and the specific issues. They are still working on it and we are looking at an update on the software for a fix. No information on when the release is, but we will keep you in the loop. Appreciate you continuing to check back to provide additional information. 

 

Many thanks, 
Marius

Re: Altitude Decreases as a I Climb

Marius,

 

Thank you for the updates!! It's much appreciated. No huge hurry on the fix - the camera does a great job and produces some nice video without it, but as a flying data-driven dork, I do like that info and look forward to posting on a bunch of my vids. :)  


Thanks!
-Rob

Re: Altitude Decreases as a I Climb

Marius,

Just wanted to check in on this to see what we've found. I also noticed the time is not correct at all. The time on my GoPro, however, is correct. I did some flying this weekend and can confirm altitude is wildly incorrect along with the time.

Thanks!

Re: Altitude Decreases as a I Climb

Hello @rblue

 

I know it has been long. Is the case still the same even with the latest version of Quik that was just released last Friday (v2.7)? 

 

Thanks, 

Marius

Same issue. Altitude is wildly inaccurate. This is not the SAME exact thing (decrease as a climb), but I get that as well. This clip was started while flying home at 5,500' ASL. I never went above that. This is 2.7.

It also was a little after 3 PM central time.

Re: Altitude Decreases as a I Climb

It's been almost a year - hoping you have some good news finally, right? 
I've been pretty patient, but I won't be purchasing another GoPro if I continue to be ignored.


Thanks
