System Stability + Updated FEatureS
1.07.00 for Rhino Arc II is primarily a system stability update. It addresses battery charging issues and improves perceptable jitter in footage.
This update focuses more on internal fixes and stability rather than customer facing features. We brought on a brand new engineering team this summer. They're crushing it and have been getting up to speed restructuring things in a way that will allow for faster and more reliable development in 2021. We know a lot of you are waiting for us to release an update that includes multiple keyframes. This update lays a solid foundation for us to build and release that feature in 2021.
When charging Rhino Arc II using prior versions of firmware, it is possible that your charge can "time-out" before your unit reaches full charge. 1.07.00 fixes this so that your unit will reach full charge within 10 hours.
- Your battery indicator may not show a full charge even when the batteries are done charging. We are working on this in December and will have an update out in January to address this.
- After updating your indicator may show low battery or power off. To fix this, charge for an hour and it will reset the charging system.
- You can damage your batteries if you leave it plugged in for extended (12+) periods of time. Please don't leave your unit on or plugged in for more than 12 hours.
After reviewing some of the videos posted on our Storyteller's Facebook group, we saw noticable jitter in some of your footage. We were able to improve this by changing how we drive our motors in firwmare. We updated the sine wave and current profile that drives the motor ICs and saw a significant improvement in footage. Try out the new firmware and let us know what you think.

- Better handling of error messages and initialization which results in fewer system failures.
