    I was going to update to this version but realized I will be on vacation soon (during first week of July). My AC seems to be flying fine with my current FW. Is there any benefits to updating now, or should I just wait until after I get back? I plan on bringing my P3P with me on this vacation. I guess the short-winded question is... Has anyone encountered any major problems with this newest firmware update? Thanks.

    Read the firmware note's. If it is not an addition that you may wan't, stay with what works. Like the old saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    What he said! But, I've been flying with 1.9.6 with no issues, if that helps.

    I have been flying with 1.8.8 and was having terrible trouble with my gimbal making smooth, level adjustments when I turned the aircraft. I was okay when taking photos because I can easily level the horizon in Lightroom. But filming while slowly panning was terrible as my horizons would tilt miserably. I've had a ticket open with DJI for the past week, they suggested I upgrade to 1.9.6, link my RC, perform a IMU and then a gimbal calibration. I have done every type of gimbal calibration with no success and have done several cool, level IMU calibrations with no success. I really didn't think this would help because when I read what the 1.9 firmware addresses, it says nothing about gimbals.

    Well, I did what they requested and just took my bird out to fly. I did several hard turns and generally put her thru the ringer and my gimbal was steady as a rock! I can't believe it! I'm going to test her tomorrow but I've got my fingers crossed. I know a lot of pilots are having tilted horizon problems so I wanted to share my story. Going to 1.9.60 was a necessity for me.
