    On 1.1.9 have 4 batteries and no issues so far, you should be good to go.

    Batteries are new if your wondering around 3-4 weeks old. (Or 2-3 weeks lol) no more than 6 flights each and I literally fly every day.

    Rock Solid ?? Just like 1.3.2 and 1.4.0 are.
    And if you think you have no issues, take a pic of the horizon on the sea or a big lake.
    That S curved horizon was corrected in 1.2.6 (which gave most users no problems)
    What is it with the reverse snobbery and/or fear about firmware upgrades?
    Upgrading firmware is safe and simple.

    It's like going to grandma's house and seeing the mint condition furniture from 1940's.

    As I stated in my first post,..... NO ISSUES AT ALL,...horizon and my nj sea horizon are flat lined.
    remember i'am not complaining about the new updates,......I don't want to update because,...most
    likely after the update their will be snobbery and fear in regards to UPDATING.
