    Every day I hope to see a software update past 3.0.6 because of uncontrolled descents and slow response. What is a
    good level to downgrade to?

    If by slow response, you mean the pitch and roll limits that reduce speed from earlier firmwares, you will likely be waiting a very long time. As to the uncontrolled descents, they are not limited to 3.06 and are most likely a battery issue that can occur on all firmware versions.

    What problems have you personally experienced with 3.06, Bill? It's behaving fine for me.

    I had two uncommanded descents and I do not like the slow throttle response. The descent speed is too slow and overall I just don't care for the slowdown. I used enjoy flying and have gone back to 1.08 but haven't test yet.

    1.08 is a joy to fly, quick and responsive. DJI should incorporate multiple user levels because 3.06 and 1.08 have their advantages and we should be able to choose. I really need ground station or I have no choice but live with 3.x. HELP!
