    Hey guys,

    It's been a long time since I stopped using my P3P, after summer, I put it under my bed and... see you again baby.. :(

    I finally used it two days ago in the countryside and suddenly remembered how marvelous this bird was... :cool:
    I also remembered about some update info, and as I'm still runing the old DJI app, (not even DJI GO) and my P3A still 1.1.9 (I think so) I thought it would be logical to evolve at this point. :D

    Is the current 1.4.0010 firmware stable? Did you notice serious glitches? Should I update??

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Yeah the latest firmware is stable - I mean - it's up to you whether you want to update - and you'll need to update your controller separately to 1.3.2... but for all the new features... yeah I would update.

    Sorry to "slightly" HiJack the thread but is there a dedicated "Sticky" or something where we can go quickly see what the latest & greatest FW for our devices (controller, battery, aircraft) are?

    WOW, my bird is currently making a continuous ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ with solid red light indicator.. Did the update fail ??

    EDIT: it's all fine now, update is a success, now my new problem is the controller. the led is still read after 3 mins...

    With the fw 1.4.0010 you can use Litchi app. The Ground station is awesome! You can also use Google cardboard VR glass for fpv video

    Not sure what you're describing with the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz - can you take a video of it? Also what indicator are you talking about (the led's on the arm or the light on the gimbal)
