I am just getting ready to start this hobby. I have been seriously considering a Phantom for a couple months now. I am starting to second guess my decision. Forums like this one, and others, are full of information about flyways, bad updates, bad software and other issues. This is not an investment that I can afford to watch fly away. I've been told that if I just leave the firmware as is, out of the box, I will be fine. I see guys on here posting that the Phantom is requiring an instant upgrade. Is that true? Is this a safe purchase right now? There are a few competitors on the market and coming soon as you all know. I don't want to sound like another newbie on here, but, I am. Any help or input would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.
