    Software is complex and enables complexity within systems, if you leave out (or cut down on) the testing phase (which is usually at the end of a project for time/money) then you get systems that are too complex to fix. Rushing out 'fixes' usually compounds the situation.

    I love my Phantom, but I will not upgrade the firmware 'just because' - it's asking for trouble.

    Think about it, would you fly in a fullsize helicopter that was written by DJI :0 ?

    If you don't update the firmware & your Phantom happens to fly away, I guess you will be pooched...
    The newest firmware just may help save your $K...

    But that's your call. Best of luck.

    I wish I was smart enough to think this up.

    I am smart enough to understand and agree though. I wonder how far ahead DJI would be right now, if the P2 wasn't falling out of the sky every single day.

    Great read morph000, thanks for sharing. ;)
