    The update process will go smoothly if you do it exactly like this.

    Start it up, take the first flight and then decide. A lot of people really like the 1.4 update. I run the 1.3.2 on my Advanced and my Pro came with 1.6.4.

    You can download the 1.4 fw to update the battery if needed from msingers page
