Read that over on Phantom Pilots. Started up a real shitstorm with some of the guys. Seems like that isn't supposed to get out right now, and somebody's pissed that it did.
Anyway, I think it is great news if it is for real and am looking forward to having the expanded features.

Hopefully they fix the gimbal horizon issue, or at least provide some type of assurance that it is being worked on

Hahaha, it's a game we play.  In our own minds.
Convincing ourselves to never be content. Always wanting more...

I am already very happy, now. Upping  the ante, is just gravy. I love my Phantom 3, just as she is.
But the more parameters, the better... ;-)

But like with all previous new FW updates, we have to wait for a few "lucky" first timers to get it, try it then report back what is actually working, what it broke, and how it actually runs!  But once all the little details are worked out, it looks very promising!

Can t DJI propose higher frame rate for lower resolution on the Pro version? Will be interesting to have the ability to do some slow motion similar to what the Go Pro are proposing.

Well $260 extra for the pro and if the advanced is shooting 2.7k at 30fps I think the visual quality between the two models would be minimal.I personally think that the camera itself isn't up to snuff to shoot quality 4k anyway.....Just my thoughts

That guy who reverse coded the Phantoms said they had the same camera, with 2x not yet used. Maybe he was right.

Same sensor... Different processors... That is why the Pro has a fan on the camera/gimble and the advance doesn't

And the Professional model will have 5K according to rumours. Perfect for the iMac 5K:s out there

Same camera sensor in all models,that's why. Like BMW same engine in 320 and 330 with different turbocharger and mappings. Well brakes and bushings arE beefier too. And you pay 2500 bucks for thoose extra 70 HP

Apparently beta testing on the features ends on 3rd Sept, so I would think by the time all the reports are sent to DJI and they act upon any issues revealed it may be a while yet before we see these features on new firmware.
