    Yep... no problems here on any of the firmware's. Bird goes up.. pictures and videos.. bird lands. End of story.

    No problem with any firmware, ever. Why would anyone subject themselves to a total elimination of warranty by flying old firmware?

    Many of us will be out of warranty period anyway.

    I hated 1.2.6 as it would sometimes freeze or pixilate at 1000 feet. 1.3.2 fixed the problem and has been rock solid for me. I don't care about auto flight features, so that's where I'll stay.

    Wow. How soon some of us forget. I read LOTS of reports of people having problems after updating several weeks ago. Loss of video signal at a much closer range than previously was the big one. It happened a couple of times to me, too. I have had far fewer probs since manually changing to channel 32 and using the curved range extender.

    The only thing that seems to always be forgotten is that those that have any kind of issue are a very insignificant percentage of the overall picture.

    I'm sure that will make them feel much better.

    E mailed dji and was told running an older version does not void your warranty, if it did dji would not allow you to revert to an older version.

    Something worth remembering...... Unless everyone is having the same problem, the problem is something in your device. That doesn't mean your device is broke, it could mean a setting of some kind could be all it is. However, finding a resolution is usually next to impossible in most cases. Prior to being able to go back to the older version, I always had to sit back and hope a fix would come along in the next update which always seems to take for ever!
