I got my Phantom 3 Advanced a few days ago, but I was waiting until today to actually fly it. In the mean time I have been reading this forum and asking questions. I still have plenty to learn. I decided to start off with all the latest software, so I upgraded everything. All went well. All I did was carefully follow directions and it worked I did read about so many people having issues with the new remote control software. Reduced distance seems the most common. That is actually one of the reasons I chose to update first. I didn't want to fly with the software it came with to then be disappointed when I updated. Updating first means I have nothing to compare, so maybe ignorance is bliss? I only have one battery so my first time was quick. Just like high school! Sorry, had to! I had no issues at all that I can tell. Now I will study the flight in the app and get ready to go again. I can already see why people get addicted and spend spend spend. How many batteries does everyone have? I know I need at least 2, but maybe three since I am now learning how frustrating it is to wait for my battery to cool down and recharge!
