    And here's a related question (the OP may already know this - but I don't): if I have firmware 3.06 installed and I open Assistant 3.0 and attach the Phantom, will it back down to firmware 3.00?

    Thanks Geert but I guess what Im really asking is, is the new firmware defective? Why would anybody desire the 3.0 over the 3.2?

    There's nothing wrong with. 3.06. It's not defective.

    Unless you can revert your phone app to a previous version also, you'll lose the low battery alarm.

    V3.0 and v 3.2 refer to the assistant software not the firmware version. If you run 3.0 and update the firmware you will get 3.04. Running 3.2 and updating will give you 3.06.

    In this case it will back down to 3.04 because that is the last version available with assistant 3.0. If you had 3.0 and moved off it you can not go back to it. So assistant 1.08 gets you firmware 1.08. 3.0 gets you 3.04. And 3.2 gets you 3.06. I am not sure about assistant 2.0 for some reason!

    biggest difference I know of is that 3.0 doesn't have the 2 meter per foot restriction... 3.06 does.
