    I heard a lot bad about the latest firmware update on the P3 Pro, some had problems with it on the bird and a lot had with the RC, I currently have,
    App is the 2.6.1
    RC is the 1.5.70
    bird is the 1.6.40
    Am I best to keep those or should I accept any of the updates?
    I just dont want to have the problem others had!

    Order for RC and bird does not matter as the other is advised to be kept in off mode when first is being updated.

    Updates done, all successful, took it ut sent it out on a good flight around the hillside, probably a good 3-4 mile trip, burned up 1 battery, did work good, seems only thing, when lose signal on the video, you will see the bird coming back before see the video on the tablet come back.

    My advice about forums is, be wary of everything you read. If these things had all these problems people talk about, DJI would be out of business. And obviously DJI is going strong. I tend to put my faith in those guys and pretty much shrug off everything else. If there was a problem with the firmware, DJI would address it.
