    Hi all,

    I have a P2V at firmware version 3.08 and a Rotorpixel gimbal. Any reason I should upgrade? I remember a while back folks with Rotorpixel gimbals seemed to have problems with upgrades post 3.08. Thoughts?

    Let me be more specific . I have always jumped on the latest updates just to try them out and am on the latest now.
    Out of all I had I would go back to 3.08 as I had less issues and got the most distance in it .
    Not really that many now but 3.08 was my favorite looking back .:)

    I updated to the latest from 3.08 and my phantom never does calibrate the way it did when I had 3.08, now gotta do it twice every time I do it dont know why, and even then every once in a while it doesnt work.......wish I would have stayed with 3.08 as well

    Mine was perfect on 3.14 with the RPG but when I took it abroad, just couldn't get the bloody thing to calibrate. I tried everything, no joy.

    On my return the Phantom calibrated 1 st time.

    Don't know what the problem was, gimbal or firmware, who knows but I always updated when new firmware came out & part from the above I've had no issues;)
