    I have the original P3P from over a year ago. Havent upgraded or anythig. Keep my tablet in airplane mode and no internet connections to force an upgrade. The P3 FLIES PERFECT. I see all the numerous updates and people posting FW problems, makes me glad I never upgraded.

    I have all upgrades and have had a P3P for about 6 months. The P3 flies perfect. Makes me glad I update every time there is a new version. Just saying.

    I would suspect that most firmware versions have been quite stable too.
    Firmware gets blamed for way more than it really affects.

    Have just swapped my Phantom at dealer (less than two weeks old) Video stopped working properly a few days ago. No signal at 20m and 30m. The problem started after a firmware update.

    When first unboxed and powered up, day of delivery September 1st, a firmware upgrade was applied. That was before I'd even flown it. It flew perfectly with good video signal. Then around a week ago another firmware update was forced on me and that's when the video problem began. Seems from forums I'm not the only one. I can't find release note documentation that details what the firmware update was for (remote, aircraft or both) and what it was meant to achieve.

    The brand new boxed one I got last night won't be getting any upgrades to the firmware until I can figure out how to backup all existing firmware or have access to a working archive for P34k firmware that actually allows rollback. I was unable to rollback last week.

    I can't be certain but I suspect that the first firmware updated the aircraft (due to the version numbers I remember) - this is all new to me, my first drone - and the second update was for the controller and coincided with the app update.

    Other manufacturers would have a page on their website listing all firmware update details in date order.
