    I see all of the message about problems with firmware updates. I'm an "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" kinda guy. Anyone else ignoring firmware updates?

    My theory is that if ain't broke, why would DJI go to the trouble of fixing it.

    I'm with you. I always install firmware updates after a few days -- just to make sure there aren't any major bugs.

    Because it seems some of what they are "fixing" changes the way it operates. The cold weather battery update cane with reports of slower birds. The previous update came with reports of reduced range.

    I upgrade within a few days. I do consult these threads before upgrading and there are some beta testers on here. Currently I'm testing 1.7 and the geo-fencing softwear. The only thing I've noticed is calibration may have a bug of I must try twice. Other than that its smooth sailing so far.

    You're making my point..."Other than this new problem that wasn't a problem before, there's no problem."

    One I said "may". Two this is a beta release and not a final firmwear. So, I can't see that you point was made in this instance. However, I understand you being cautious, to each their own.
