3DR releases Iris update kit to reposition Pixhawk way from I2C board – Tutorial #drone

Roger from 3D Robotics shares:

It’s come to our attention that, in some cases, the electronics inside Iris can become positioned in a way that wears on the connections between the components. To ensure that this issue doesn’t affect your Iris’s autopilot system, we’ve designed a simple kit that will help you re-position the electronics.
Shortly, you should receive an email about this adjustment, along with a free kit in the mail. The kit includes all the parts you’ll need to perform the update. We’ve posted a tutorial video to walk you through making the adjustment at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22mom0JImts. For more information, please visit 3dr.com/iris/info.
As always, if you have any questions, or if for some reason your kit doesn’t arrive, please contact us any time at [email protected]
Thanks, and happy flying!

People who purchased the developer version of Iris should be okay, no need to update!
