Hello, everyone, I would like to know if there is a solution to the new update of the Ground Station, it points to the opposite direction of the payload. We followed several times the instructions step by step, but, no improvements. The Ground Station was updated and calibrated as specified in the instructions. About the Raspberry Pi with the new update the ip I scanned on the Pi is not as the one described in the instructions. On the bright side, the live-stream works like a charm.

For the ground station pointing in the opposite direction, can you confirm that your center bearing is where you want it to be? Look at the center bearing being used in the bottom left table of ground station information, and compare that to the actual center bearing of your system (measure using a compass). If it is exactly opposite, you have have the IMU mounted backwards.
Otherwise, make sure your payload is a good distance from your ground station. The uncertainty in GPS coordinates can cause inaccurate pointing if they are too close.
