    My original P3P flew away in late May... (Big swooping circles, did not respond to RTH, flew away 3 miles before I lost signal... Never recovered). I mention to note that I flew a rock-solid P3P for a month so know how they "should" behave.

    My 2nd P3P has been very unstable since I received it a couple weeks ago. I turned off vision, and it's better, but still drifts a lot more that the 1st bird. I was biding my time waiting for the FW update when I finally found how to determine the current FW. I had assumed I had the newer version people are complaining about, but I have 1.1.9!

    Anyone else have instability probs w 1.1.9? Any thoughts?

    Can't say that I do.... 1.1.9 has been solid as a rock on my second p3. My first was bricked on 26 and ruined.affer it was perfect on 1.1.9... So you might be a very very unfortunate owner of a DOA 19... Sorry man. This all assumes the typical imu/compass stuff is handled...but I'm sure someone will chime in telling you to calibrate it.

    Big swooping circles is a compass issue.

    1.1.9 is stable for me. 120 flights on 1.1.9 without issues and 3 flights on 1.2.6 with some strange issues. Downgraded to 1.1.9 - everything is back to normal. I believe your serial number is the answer. Different factories - different results.

    1.1.9 firmware works absolutely perfectly. Sounds like you've got other issues such as Compass and or IMU calibration.
