    Hi, just got another p3 standard but the aircraft firmware is 1.0.20

    I don't have access to multiple flight modes follow me, point of interest etc etc... they seem to be missing.

    My older phantom 3 standard had all these flight modes out of the box.

    Does anyone know why they are missing from my new p3 standard?

    is it because of the 1.0.20 firmware, how old is this firmware?

    And should I upgrade to the latest 1.3.50 firmware, how is the stability?


    Thanks guys

    Always start ar the bottom and work your way up the numbers on the firmware.

    P3S can only download latest version. You'll need a newer version for intelligent flight modes.

    I have it. After updating both the bird and RC, it worked great, and fixed all my previous little issues.

    Ok, so my firmware 1.0.20 is old?

    What are the differences in the latest firmware?

    Not sure exactly, but I believe Intelligent Flight Modes were intro'd after 1.0.20. There were some cold weather improvements also.

    I've heard the latest firmware has battery issues in flight?

    So there's no way around it but to install the latest firmware?

    I've started out with the latest firmware. Bird acts fine I get about 20minutes in cold weather flying before the alert pops up. I usually get about 1000ft before signal issues in a residential neighborhood. The latest firmware is fine

    Ok, does anyone else recommend the latest 1.3.50 firmware for the P3 Standard?

    So far a few guys have said it's good.
