    Getting a new Samsung Galaxy Edge 7 tomorrow. I am still using a very old version of DJI go - never updated the bird.
    Apart from the tilted horizon it works perfectly. Great range and never a single problem.
    I will need to install DJI Go on my new phone but I don't want all the restrictions. Would 1.4 be my best bet and if so where can I find it?
    Thanks in advance!

    I installed the go-app straight from the store on my new Invidia K1 and left everything else the same. I'm on 1.3.20 and it works fine. Msinger has archived updates at the bottom of his page but the go-app will work fine with your 1.19 other than the " you need to update" message that comes on in the beginning :)

    That is great thanks.
    Which version would be best that would avoid channel restrictions and no fly zones etc? Would I need to upgrade the bird or just instal the app on my phone?

    Just install the go-app and check it out. I had an older version of the go-app saved in my store but when I hit install it just put in the new one anyway but... No Problems being that the updates on the bird are where the restrictions come in.

    That is great - so why do people update the bird?

    To get bugs fixed like the wavy horizon you put up with in 1.1.9
    Or to use new features like POI that came with 1.4

    Better a wavy horizon than an auto shut off battery!

    Advanced

    I installed the latest firmware on my Phantom 3 Advanced and am using the latest DJI Go app and have no issues. I'm not sure what people are talking about regarding video issues because I have not had any issues. I just came back from a flight and was a maximum of $2,634 feet away with full control and full video with no lag. Maybe I am just lucky??????

    Here is a Healthy Drones link to my flight: HealthyDrones.com - Innovative flight data analysis that matters

    That was a funny, right? ;-)
    As I have not experienced them maladies associated with new firmware or any of those Pilot~Go app updates either. I have done them all, without any regret or remorse. Just lucky I suppose, and a trouble free drone to appreciate all the more.

    Have you tried to fix tilted horizon? It should be an easy fix.

    I haven't bothered to be honest. I normally fly in mountains so it isn't such a problem. I would like to install Litchi though to take advantage of special features.
    It is just my P3 has been so so awesome I don't want to spoil it.
    No stupid no fly zones or registering online.
    No worries about motors not doing as they are asked.
    No worries about channel hacks and lack of range.
    Just hassle free flying.
    Had my longest ever flight last week - 12,500 ft totally standard.
