    New user confused about updating firmware. There seems to be 3 separate components (Quad-copter/Controller/Extender) Do each get firmware up-dates?

    Firmware updates are usually available for the Copter and Controller and more recently a P330CB update (another component) which addressed an issue with the gimbal assembly.
    Some people advise not to upgrade the firmware because of issues they are experiencing, I have done all updates and not had any issues. Some of the latest firmware updates restrict flying around airports & also restricts the descent speed to 2m/sec to reduce the risk of VRS(Vortex RIng State) which can cause the copter to fall 'through' its own prop wash or turbulence created by the props.
