Factory reset of the drone helps but after wifi customization the beacon refuses to connect

Did you re-pair the beacon to the drone with the cable, the wifi customizations require a re-pair.

yes indeed after re-pair the beacon could’nt connect to the drone anymore
I ran into a similar situation after customizing my wifi settings in the drone, it doesn't seem to work very smoothly or reliably after customization. I ended up restarting the whole process and going back to the default settings for wifi and password. After that everything seems to work fine. In my case it wasn't propagating the new info correctly to the devices.

Same for me. Don't think it's related to this update, happened to me on that first major update with keyframe just as described and I did same as Ridefreak to resolve.

After multiple resets still he same issue.
Skydio is looking for a solution.
Do I understand correctly....the new beacon (S2+) and Skydio2 drone and the new beacon has connection issues even if original wifi is used? I assume the original S2 beacon still works fine?

If so, glad I didn't go that route....I was thinking of doing so for possible expanded range.

I doubt this is a product wide issue, if it was there'd be people bitchin high and low and so far it seems confined to a single user. The wifi customization process isn't as smooth as you'd hope but the fact that it did connect and then failed to do so after customization tells me it's the same issue many of us had when wifi customization was first allowed.

I'm always skeptical when someone states their problem as a product wide issue yet we don't hear about it from others or on other forums. Especially when the Subject starts with "ATTENTION"

My beacon(S2+) updated fine. What's odd is I usually plug the beacon into my S2 to update, this time it did not work. When I unplugged it and connected it to the app the beacon updated wireless.

What are you calling wifi "customization"?

I assume, changing the factory name and passwords to something easy to remember?

After updating I got constant nuisance flags pop up to customize the Wi-Fi. This assigns a new name and password of your choosing. But like Rightfreak I had issues with the customized password so I did a reset and I am staying with the default name and password.
