    Faster? Firmwares do not affect speed.

    And what do you program to make it faster? Or what settings do you adjust to make the aircraft faster?

    You don't.
    That was the point. He stated he wanted to downgrade his firmware to go faster. I was stating that firmware changes do not effect speed. If he wants speed, he bought the wrong product.

    The firmware does not effect speed. UP up up or forward forward forward.

    I thought they choked down the cilmb rate with the latest firmware that's why I am asking if I go back one will it climb faster for the pics I want at higher levels

    HWCM, Norcal38 mentioned what I was getting to. The 1.9.6 firmware range & speed were reduced. Rolling back to at least 1.8.8 has been said to return the aircraft back to normal, or what the operator's were use to.

    Sounds like it's downgrade time hope it does not make the battery's fail ? Don't think they will go backwards

    Just downgraded mine tonight. Haven't flown it yet. It's not any slower with 1.9.6 but I did notice my range wasn't as good.

    Fw affects speed quite a lot !! Just compare 1.3.2 or better 1.1.9 to 1.5 and above and there is a big difference.
