Take a look around.  If what you have is working fine, decide on rolling the dice.

Updates do not usually add any great new features or stuff worrth having. If you aircraft operates fine on existing firmware, then disable all updates and enjoy it.

I got the Bird from a guy who installed the quick connect prop guards in it. I test flew the bird two flights later I landed and just happened to touch one of the motors it was quite hot shot it with my raytec heat gun 175*F I flipped it over and noticed several screws not seated fully into the prop guard mounts, but they were all tight. While looking for temp range of the motors I found an article about excessive screw length damaging motors. I just replace all 4 motors to be safe. flew a test flight motors only slightly warm now @ 78* F after that test I flew 2 more batteries and started seeing the firmware update message. I love the Bird and I have the P3S also so the 4K was a good upgrade for me. I'm still considering on P3P or just biting the bullet and getting the Inspire. Chief financial advisor (Wife) says the 4K is good enough lol I rarely listen to that Babble though. I am completely happy with the 4K though just wish it had Lightbridge. I'm running the Galaxy tab S3 and it works great I may get one lag spike in like 10 flights for a second or two. Thanks for the Info Brother

It is not a mandatory update. You can make the decision according to your current situation.

I'm not sure how it happened as I didn't initiate an upgrade of the firmware but somehow my firmware changed from 1.5.40 to 1.6.50 there is a process to update and I at no time did that. I figured go ahead and see what it does put the AC in the air and Instantly had massive Lag and disconnection issues. which I've never had before ever. I was only out 600ft and 250Ft up and flying in the same area I always fly. put it away for the evening and retried today same issues so I drove to a cemetery I fly over that's 5000ft X 4000ft in size with no wifi or power lines same problem. I now need to downgrade back to 1.5.4 only thing Ive foung on doing that on the P34K is that it cant be done anyone know for sure?

Mine is being a pain in the a** ever since it started requesting that I take this update.
Loved mine, but starting to wonder who owns this thing, me or DJI.
Any update on your situation.

To mine a big 3 4k, got a virus the month of November and is in the workshop, repairing, so the gimbal and the camera I fixed it for 24 euros, plus the risk of charging me the camera and the rest; and the body, is in intensive care waiting for the date of operation, the day that the components arrive from China, that's very cheap, then you have to know how to mount them, which I feel sorry for, jajajaajaj, so yesterday I did not break it more, jajajaaj, now I see that the problem I had adds the theme of the famous new update that he asked me while he was getting ready, testing the repair, so he stayed connected while and the virus doing his in the download ?? or it disabled the card, the mobile left it that the new application is not compatible, the previous one if it was compatible, it had worked two minutes ago, so after being all night trying, I found that it was a defect of the new update that It came out with many faults according to where and how, so more than one is going to break the drone to see that it works weird, mine did that, it stopped at 7 meters released the propellers up and the drone plummeted, the camera continues live but the gimbal and new cable, the body waste a condenser loose two micro capacitors of impossible measures to locate in the market, so new plate that with the engines came out with customs and transport for 200 euros, total is a hobby, something expensive, so workshop and workmanship I'm not counting, it would be impossible, hahahaha, and now I see that the update that I have to put on the card to work, no problems, that's why it still lacks screws and components of i nstalar in the body, buy two new 24 euros in case and the battery case, another 14 each, so more expensive than the body come out, ahahaha and it turns out that it is only the program that out of control the machine, ah, the average battery endured the blow, a strange wire comes out, but still charges and seems to work, that does go very badly to the drone, to see if it returns to fly.

THANK YOU

You can put the mobile device in airplane mode, the message will not bother you any more. Regarding the APP issue, may I know which mobile device do you use and what's the current version? Could you post a short video for better assistance?

I use a Samsung Galaxy S6 cell phone sometimes, but mostly use a Nexus 7 tablet.
Both have worked really well up until recently.

Won't airplane mode block me from the P3 4k network?

After putting the mobile device in airplane mode, you can still enable the WiFi to connect the P3 4K.

Thanks DJI Susan,

I was able to fly all three batteries last inside a gym.
My power button must be failing or dirty.
I'll open and clean one day, I'm just so happy to be flying again

the best product I've found for dirty switch contacts is a Product called Electromotive it evaporates out like alcohol does so just spray work the switch and go. I use it on the Job Quite a bit for electric switch sets, Motors and contactor systems. most times you don't have to disassemble the switch as the product is very thin and will work in through even the smallest  cracks or openings

Re reading an old post and I never answered you.
Sorry about that.
From Montreal Quebec Canada an amazingly beautiful province with complex politics like most places just different topics.
Laws changed drastically here in Canada.
Over 1Kg fly only
9Km outside of airport
Not within 75 meters of humans, buildings, animals etc.
