Everything still working on ONE of mine.  I'm not doing the other two for a little while until I've got a few test flights done.

I just finished my other one.  I updated one last night and have been running it through the paces on the desk.  Can't let it loose outside yet as it's a -14 today and super cold, going to warm up tomorrow and then snow.  but it passed all the tests inside as far as no firmware crashes.

I will say that based on my indoor testing, the new GPS firmware is the real deal. I'm getting a GPS lock inside the house. Not sure how the new firmware achieved this feat, but it appears like the Phantom does a better job of getting the GPS lock.

I'm not updating mine, it works fine as is. No point risking a bad flash for nothing new that appeals to me.

Mine fell out of the sky yesterday for no apparent reason.  Destroyed the gimbal though the craft flew well afterwards.  bent the gimbal frame and broke it in two places so have to spend $400 for a new one.  I was just maneuvering around for a shot and bam, it fell about 30 to 40 feet.  Fortunately it was into a muddy patch.  i wish i had waited to update the firmware.  She had only had one minor crash prior to this one.

Flew through two full batteries yesterday on the last (not latest!) software, no issues what so ever, it was cloudy and I had 10-11 Sat's.
